Mitchell Marsh (35 runs) and Marcus Stoinis (30 runs) continued the momentum with aggressive knocks, propelling the Australian total past the 200-run mark.

Jonny Bairstow (7 runs) and Harry Brook (20 runs) failed to convert their starts, leaving England with a mountain to climb in the middle overs. While Moeen Ali (25 runs) played a valiant knock, the asking rate continued to climb, making the chase increasingly difficult.
