England will try and climb off the canvas after being floor by a late flurry from Australian all-rounder James Faulkner, who helped his side to the most unlikely of wins in the second one-day international of the series.
At one stage, Australia were 244-9 still needing to reach 301 to keep England on the ropes for the tour.
But a late blitzkrieg from the right-hander saw him make the scenario 25 needed off the last two overs, which Faulkner promptly erased with three balls remaining and the single wicket still in hand.
“I have seen James do it once before. I watched it on TV in India when he won that. I think he will be disappointed he didn’t take it to the last ball, but what an unbelievable innings<” Australian captain Michael Clarke said after the game.
“I thought none of our top four could go on to make a hundred, but we knew we had a strong batting unit, and Mitch (Johnson) batted at No.10, but Faulkner was just striking it so well.
“(Glenn) Maxwell did well and his good, positive intent set up the game for us. It’s nice to play with confidence and to know within that they can win games of cricket no matter what, but like we have said England are a strong team, and we have to play better than tonight in order to win the series.
“It’s exciting for the game. New young players are coming in and stepping up to win us games. Faulkner deserves all the credit in the world.”
Faulkner said he was feeling the nerves as the game came to a head.
“When you bat lower down the order you have to try and get the team home,” he said.
“It is all about winning games for your country. I might look like I am calm, but deep down I am pretty nervous. It is a special night, and it is always good when Australia wins.
“Those sixes are up there with some of the best I have hit. Just happy to get the win. This is definitely the ultimate moment. To win like this is something special.”
Alastair Cook paid tribute to the outstanding century from Eoin Morgan, which was the backbone of England’s innings of 300.
It took an unbelievable innings to beat us today. I thought Morgs played exceptional well, and we did everything right till the last wicket,” Cook said.
“It’s an emotional dressing room now, but when we look at it tomorrow morning we will see we did a lot of good things, but the last few overs were not so good.
Proud of the way the lads stuck in, but we couldn’t pull it off unfortunately. We showed how close we were today, and like I said it took an amazing innings to beat us.”
