Jos Buttler Elated After Snatching Victory From Jaws of Defeat


A magnificent unbeaten century from England's Jos Buttler sealed a thrilling one-wicket victory and a 5-0 whitewash over Australia, denying the tourists what looked like being a consolation win at Old Trafford.

While accepting there were areas that needed attention in England's batting display, in particular, England's captain, Eoin Morgan felt the ability to win from an nearly hopeless position would serve England well.

But Buttler's unbeaten hundred guided the hosts home in the penultimate over as England got over the winning line with one wicket to spare.

Thus, England was able to clean sweep Australia for the first time. In the end, Australia's run hit another low as they slumped to a defeat by one wicket and lost the series by a humiliating margin of 5-0.

But the world's No.1 ranked ODI team also struggled early, with opener Jason Roy bowled by spinner Ashton Agar for one.

And when Alex Hales was caught by Tim Paine off Kane Richardson (3-51) for 20, England were 5-66.

Moeen was also unable to make an impact for the home side; he had scored just 16 when he was caught at point off the bowling of Stoinis.

With Adil Rashid (20) brilliantly caught by Stanlake off Stoinis in the 45th over, the score was suddenly 9-195 and the game heading Australia's way. "Not as hard as Trent Bridge but we've certainly been taught a lesson by a world-class outfit".

The midfielder's mistimed pass led to Ola Toivonen's first-half goal for Sweden. "Of course, the first goal (by Sweden) was my fault".

"We had them under pressure". We bowled fantastically well and didn't quite click with the bat.

Together with opening partner Aaron Finch, he put on 60 inside seven overs.

But Morgan brought on lethal spinner Ali, who bagged two wickets in a superb first over. Jake Ball survived 10 balls for 1* run.

Head compiled a 36-ball fifty, including eight fours but again fell soon afterwards when he chipped fast bowler Liam Plunkett to Morgan at short midwicket.

Shaun Marsh (8), prodded forward to Ali to be stumped by Buttler and the carnage continued with Buttler dashing from behind the stumps to run out Paine on the pirouette with a direct hit.

England were in a parlous position at 27 for four, chasing Australia's total of 205 all out, when the gifted, powerful Butler came to the crease and played one a masterful innings.

"Plucking today from nowhere shows that we've got that in us".
