After the glory of the 20-20 World Cup 2022, England is playing in the three-match ODI series. In the ongoing first game of the series, the team has done alright in patches. While the Three Lions is looking to carry on with the winning momentum, the home team wasnt to get up after the Super 12 exit in the World Cup. Meanwhile, in the ongoing game, Ashton Agar pulled off a stunning effort.

The incident happened in the 45th over of the visitors’ innings. Newly-appointed ODI skipper of Australia, Pat Cummins bowled the over, David Malan pulled a back of a length delivery towards deepmidwicket fence. It looked like going for six. However, Agar had different ideas as he jumped, grabbed the ball, and threw it back towards the fielder in the ring. The effort saved the Yellow brigade five runs on the field.

Talking about the game, the home team won the toss and elected to bowl first. The bowlers complimented the decision as they took seven wickets for 199 runs combined. However, thanks to Dawid Malan’s 134 and lower-order’s fightback, the team reached 287/9 at the end of the innings. At the time of writing, the chase is yet to start.

Meawnhile, the Kangaroos would look to chase down the target and start a new era after the loss in 20-20 World Cup 2022. On the other hand, the Blue Brigade would look to assert their dominace over their Ashes rivals, that started before the tournament. For the unversed, both teams played a T20I series that was won by England. Meanwhile, it will be interesting to see how the wicket behaves in the second innings.

Not to forget, the home team hasn’t played too many ODI games in the last couple of years. In the games they played, they have looked like the shadow of their former selves. With the 2023 ODI World Cup just a year away, both teams would be looking to start their preparations.
