ENG vs AUS 2nd ODI 2020 Stat Highlights: Jofra Archer Extends Dominance Over David Warner as England Win by 24 Runs

Courtesy some spectacular fast bowling from Jofra Archer, Chris Woakes and Sam Curran, England have snatched a 24-run victory from the jaws of defeat and levelled the three-match series 1-1. Chasing a mediocre-looking target of 232 runs, Australia didn’t get off to a flying start as Archer took two early wickets. However, skipper Aaron Finch joined forces with Marnus Labuschagne and the duo accumulated 107 runs for the third wicket. Just when Australia’s victory looked set on the cards, their middle-order collapsed shockingly, and the Three Lions came back in the hunt. Alex Carey tried to make a fightback in the end overs but wasn’t able to take his side over the line. England vs Australia 2nd ODI 2020 Highlights.

Earlier in the match, Eoin Morgan won the toss and elected to bat first at the Emirates Old Trafford in Manchester. The decision didn’t prove to be impeccable as England lose wickets at regular intervals. Mitchell Starc brilliantly with the new ball while Adam Zampa took wickets in the middle overs. However, Adil Rashid and Tom Curran didn’t put their guards down and smashed the Aussie bowlers all over the park in the death overs. Riding on their efforts, England post 231/9, which eventually proved to be enough. Meanwhile, let’s look at the stat highlights of the game.
