Australia completed a 3-0 whitewash over world champions England after thrashing them by 221 runs (DLS method) in the third and last ODI. The hosts successfully defended a mammoth total of 355-5, bundling out Jos Buttler & Co. for just 142 in 31.4 overs.
Leg-spinner Adam Zampa took four wickets for 31, while captain Pat Cummins and his fast bowling partner Sean Abbott grabbed two wickets each.

Head hit 150 off 130 balls, while Warner scored a 102-ball 106, ending his drought of scoring a hundred in international cricket after 1043 days.

The 269-run opening partnership by Travis Head and David Warner is the 9th highest in ODI cricket, but surprisingly not the pair’s best. They put on 284 against Pakistan on January 26, 2017. #AUSvENG

Travis Head and David Warner average 85.07 when batting together in ODIs.
No pairing that has batted at least 10 times together in ODIs boasts a higher average.#AUSvENG

David Warner won the player of the series award for his 208 runs.
He is back with a bang.

World Champions have been annihilated…so lopsided have been the contests that it seems, even the Australian public decided to skip these games. An empty MCG for an #AusvEng game 🤷♂️
