AUS vs ENG: Watch - Ben Stokes almost runs himself out of the final delivery of England's innings, video goes viral
Australia and England competed in the 3rd and final T20I match of the three-match series at the Manuka Oval in Canberra on 14th October, Friday. Talking about the game, Aaron Finch, the skipper of Australia won the toss and invited the visitors to bat.
The game was reduced to 12 overs per side due to the rain interruption. Hence, Jos Buttler and Alex Hales opened the innings for England. Josh Hazlewood sent back Alex Hales for a duck in his first over of the game.
However, Jos Buttler and Dawid Malan stitched a beautiful 57-run partnership as Pat Cummins removed the left-handed batter for 23 runs. Jos Buttler smashed an unbeaten 65 runs off 41 balls and helped his side to post a challenging total of 112 runs on the board.
Chasing the target, Chris Woakes removed all three top-order batters of Australia and in the end, the game has been called-off due to the interruption of rain.
I thought we were pretty good across every department: Jos Buttler
England won the three-match series by 2-0 and will be looking to continue their winning momentum in the One-day fixtures as well. Jos Buttler who has been fabulous with the bat was named Player of the Series.
"We had a good series in Pakistan, to come and continue that over here is a good feeling. We just had 2 and a bit overs to play, so just came out and gave everything we had with the bat.
The conditions were challenging and I thought we were pretty good across every department. Woakes was unbelievable in his first spell tonight, got the ball to swing and that's good news for us," Jos Buttler was quoted as saying by Cricbuzz in the post-match presentation.
However, during the game, Ben Stokes produced a mind-blowing moment on the last ball of the innings, as he smashed Glenn Maxwell over the long-on region and thought it went to the boundary. But the ball was stopped by the fielder and Ben Stokes almost survived being run out himself.
