England v Australia: Highlights from the fifth ODI at Old Trafford


Catch up with all the action from the fifth and final ODI between England and Australia at Old Trafford.

A frenetic Australia innings saw them bowled out for just 205 in the fifth and final ODI against England at Old Trafford.

Click on the video above to watch highlights as Australia crumbled from a rip-roaring start, which saw them smash 58 from the first five overs, to be skittled with 15.2 overs of their allotted 50 still to bowl.

Moeen Ali (4-46) started the procession, by taking two wickets in three balls in the seventh over to dismiss Aaron Finch (22) and Marcus Stoinis for a duck, while Sam Curran (2-44) repeated the trick later in the innings in removing Alex Carey (44) and Ashton Agar – inexplicably leaving a straight one – within two balls of each other.

Agar’s brain-fade was one of several from the Australian batsmen, with them suffering two run outs – one, a brilliant direct hit from Jos Buttler to see off skipper Tim Paine (1) – and Shaun Marsh (8) out stumped after some further fine work from Buttler.

Opener Travis Head (56) had hit a 36-ball fifty as Australia got off to their flying start, while D’Arcy Short was left stranded on 47 not out, but there was little else for the visitors to shout about as England close in on a 5-0 series whitewash.
