Morgan, Willey Star as England Beat Australia

Leeds: Eoin Morgan inspired England to their best one-day international run chase against Australia as they levelled the five-match series to set up a decider at Old Trafford on Sunday.

The England skipper hit a run-a-ball 92 at Headingley, with James Taylor and Ben Stokes both scoring 41.

For Australia, Pat Cummins clinched four wickets while all rounder Mitchell Marsh picked two wickets.

Earlier, Glenn Maxwell's scintillating 85 helped Australia post a massive 300-run target.

Glenn Maxwell, who was dropped on 6 and 35, top-scored with 85 off 64 balls.

The Australia all-rounder also took two stunning catches but his efforts were not enough to prevent England overhauling a score of 300 or more for only the fourth time in their one-day international history.

It was England's second successive victory, after they also won at Old Trafford on Tuesday, and means the hosts can still send Australia home defeated across all formats after they won the Ashes 3-2 and the solitary Twenty20 international by five runs.

Opting to bat first, George Bailey scored 75, while openers Joe Burns and Aaron Finch were dismissed cheaply for two and 15 respectively.

Skipper Steve Smith scored a meager five runs before getting dismissed by David Willey.

For England, all-rounder Willey clinched three wickets while Liam Plunkett and Moeen Ali shared four wickets between them.

Subsequently, wicketkeeper-batsman Matthew Wade and John Hastings remained unbeaten at 50 and 34 respectively.
