Australia v England: Jos Buttler century leads tourists to series win

Australia captain Steve Smith admits he is at a loss to explain their recent poor ODI form

Australia have been fined for maintaining a slow over-rate in Sunday's third One-Day International against England in Sydney, which the visitors won by 16 runs to take a 3-0 lead in the five-match series.

Steve Smith will stay at No4 for the remainder of the ODI series against England, but the Australian captain says he needs to recapture his form at the crease.

"Something to look at for Adelaide, hopefully I can do it a lot better and start helping this team win some games of cricket". "I thought the way we bowled in the first 45 overs was good, but Jos played exceptionally well, Woakesy too, but we bowled poorly at the end, can't do that to a guy like Jos".

"I think I'll probably do it for the rest of the series", Smith said, after having batted at No3 since mid-2016.

Woakes concluded the innings on 53 not out.

But a terrific counter-attack in the death overs from Buttler and Woakes, who added a sensational partnership off 113 runs off 72 balls for the seventh wicket, helped England amass 102 runs in the last 10 overs and finish their innings on a strong note.

However, he said, efforts were continuing to fulfil the "Make in India" component of the agreement by promoting collaborations between companies from the two countries.

There had been suggestions on social media that Smith had rubbed lip balm on the ball. "I'd actually like for the third umpire to have to make the decision whether it's out or not".

The hosts, set 303 to win by England after winning the toss and electing to bowl, managed only 286 for six.

Steve Smith, Australia captain, has denied talk of ball tampering following their defeat in the third one-day global with England.

Seamer Mark Wood, Woakes and leg-spinner Adil Rashid all snared two wickets apiece, as Mitchell Marsh and Marcus Stoinis made half-centuries in vain for Australia.

"Bowling wise we've got to make sure we have specific and specialist one-day bowlers in our squad as well".

England had been inserted by Steve Smith, the Aussie skipper perhaps learning the lessons of Melbourne and Brisbane, where their guests had chased targets easily. It was a bit of a cat-fight for quite a stage and Jos anchored the innings until about the 40th over and then really did pull the trigger. "We've seen him do it before but against one of the best sides in the world it was great watch". Though Root went at almost seven an over, the fact that Australia couldn't score at a run a ball against Rashid and Moeen Ali meant Morgan never felt he lost control of the innings. "We will be trying very soon to get together the main nucleus of our squad so they can play together for some time".
