Australia sealed a 64-run victory over the Three Lions at Lord's to take a 2-0 lead in the five-match series. Eoin Morgan won the toss and elected to bat first. A victory for the visitors in the third ODI will see them win the series.

Steven Smith's side posted a total of 309 runs with a complete team performance from Australian batsmen. However, England put up a good fight until Ben Stokes was given out for obstructing the field.

Stokes' dismissal helped Australia make a comeback in the game as wickets fell at regular interval and England were bowled out for 245 runs with six overs to spare.

England decided to rest wicket-keeping batsman Jos Buttler for the remainder of the series and have replaced him with Jonny Bairstow. The hosts need to win the next three games in order to avoid a series defeat.

Australia will be without the services of David Warner after the opening batsman is ruled out of the series due to a fractured thumb. He is likely to be replaced by Cameron Bancroft and will join Joe Burns to open their batting lineup.
