Ruthless England 3-0 up with two matches to play

A jubilant England bunch shake hands with beaming smiles on their faces. Hi-fives follow and they take a 3-0 lead in the five-match series. In all fairness, nothing out of the ordinary and unexpected transpired in the denouement. A record-breaking score of 481 carnage set England up and their bowlers didn't have to do anything out of the box, really. It was imperative for the visitors'
batsmen to go after the bowling from ball one and they did show some intent. Head, Marsh and Stoinis got starts instinctively but an intimidating target must've sent chills down the spine for their batters. The required rate kept creeping up with each passing over and they were forced to play catch-up cricket as England's spin duo - Adil Rashid and Moeen Ali shared 7 spoils between them to shoot the Aussies for 239. David Willey chipped in with 2 wickets as well. Presentations imminent, do stick around.
