England win second ODI after dramatic Australia collapseSeptember 14, 2020
Jofra Archer starred as world champions England staged a stunning fightback to beat Australia by 24 runs in the second one-day international at Old Trafford on Sunday.
Australia, cruising to a modest victory target of 232, were dismissed for 207 as England levelled this three-match series at 1-1.
The tourists were in command at 144-2, but lost four wickets for three runs — including Australia captain Aaron Finch for 73 — to be 147-6, the new-ball duo of Chris Woakes (3-32) and Archer (3-34) returning to do the damage on a used pitch.
And when left-arm paceman Sam Curran, recalled alongside brother Tom, took two wickets in two balls, after Woakes and Archer had completed their maximum 10-over stints, Australia were 166-8.
