Australia win ODI opener

Australia recovered from a shaky start to score 294 for nine in their 50 overs and while Sam Billings (118) struck an impressive century, the hosts were always behind the game.

England put the visitors in and had them reeling on 123 for five but Marsh (73) Maxwell (77) helped Australia rebuild on their way to a formidable total.

After slumping to 57-4 in reply and falling way behind the required run rate it looked bleak for England but Jonny Bairstow and Billings shared a century stand for the fifth wicket to edge Eoin Morgan's side back into contention.

Australia v NZ behind closed doors

Cricket Australia (CA) confirmed that fans will not be allowed into grounds to watch the three-match series, which starts on Friday at the SCG.

Ticket-holders will be given a full refund with no decision yet made over Australia's upcoming three-match Twenty20 international tour of New Zealand.

"Cricket Australia will continue to monitor the coronavirus situation at home and overseas before making a decision on Australian men's international matches beyond the Australian leg of the ODI tournament," said a statement.

India defeat Australia in ODI decider

Set 231 to win Friday's decider, India chased their target with four balls to spare to claim a 2-1 series victory and cap off a summer of unprecedented triumph.

Superstar veteran Dhoni again steered India to victory, scoring an unbeaten 87 off 114 balls - his third fifty from as many games - to repeat his match-winning heroics in Adelaide.

In a gripping finish, Dhoni was dropped on 74 by Aaron Finch at mid-off, then partner Kedar Jadhav (61 not out) barely survived a run-out attempt at the non- striker's end.

Barras lose by 82 runs to UAE

Knocks from Rameez Shahzad (87), Muhammad Usman (58) and Ghulam Shabber (50) gave the Barramundis a target of 292 to chase down.

On debut, Alei Nao was the best of the Barramundis’ bowlers with 2/47 off his ten overs.

The Barramundis’ run chase got off to a strong start with Tony Ura and Vani Vagi Morea putting an on opening partnership of 82 runs for the first wicket.

But losing Lega Siaka (9) and Assad Vala (4) put the Barramundis on the back foot.

Some fight from the middle order gave the Barramundis some hope at 5-169 needing 123 runs inside ten overs.
