England set a huge 303-run target against Australia in the third and final ODI at Manchester’s Old Trafford on Wednesday. Both teams are currently 1-1 in the three-match series. This competition is very important in such a situation. Johnny Bearstore’s century on Wednesday helped England recover from a great start of 302 for seven in the third match and decided the ODI against Australia on Wednesday.
At the same time, look at the statistics made so far on this ground, so far no team has scored more than two and a half goals in the second innings in a 50-over ODI. If we review this statistic, England’s victory is certain. But cricket is a game of uncertainty. There is never the same thing here. It will be very interesting to see if Australia will be able to break Manchester’s record in such a situation or if this ground will continue on its old record.
No team has yet chased 250 places in a 50-over ODI in Manchester. #EngvAus
