Australia lost four wickets for three runs after being in complete control of its second ODI against England before losing by 24 runs.
Much like game one of the T20 series earlier on this white-ball tour, the visitors were cruising at 2/144 in pursuit of 232.

But the end of a partnership again sparked a massive collapse and the one-day series will go to a deciding third game.
David Warner’s horrific form with the bat in England continued, but Stuart Broad is no longer his relentless tormentor.
The Aussies were 0/9 in the fourth over when England paceman Jofra Archer found the edge of David Warner’s bat, the opening batsman lazily swatting at a length delivery outside off. The 33-year-old returned to the sheds for six, his fourth single-figures score in five innings.
Archer has undeniably unearthed his newest bunny — the paceman has dismissed Warner seven times in 61 balls across all three formats since last year’s Cricket World Cup.

Broad embarrassed Warner throughout last year’s Ashes series, removing the destructive batsman seven times in ten innings. Now another English quick has emerged to terrorise the hapless Warner.
Archer has now dismissed Warner in each of his four innings throughout the ongoing short-format tour, and one match remains.

After the hosts removed Warner and No. 3 Marcus Stoinis during the power play, Australian skipper Aaron Finch and stalwart Marnus Labuschagne set about completing the run chase.
Australia was cruising at 2/144 in the 31st over when another middle order collapse ruined the innings.
Labuschagne was trapped LBW by Chris Woakes before Archer bowled Mitch Marsh (1). Woakes then bowled Finch (73) and Glenn Maxwell (1) as the visitors lost 4/3.
Alex Carey and Pat Cummins stemmed the bleeding momentarily before Cummins was bowled by Sam Curran for 11 and Mitchell Starc went next ball for a golden duck as the wheels completely fell off.
Carey made 36 from 41 but was the last man out swinging wildly at Adil Rashid with nine balls remaining in the innings.

Earlier, another superb bowling performance from Josh Hazlewood and Adam Zampa restricted England to 9/231 at Old Trafford.
Hazlewood finished with the economic figures of 1/27 from 10 overs, while Zampa — after taking four wickets in the first ODI — snared three key scalps, including experienced duo Joe Root and Eoin Morgan.
Powerhouse batsman Jason Roy was superbly run out by Stoinis, who hit the stumps after a quick-fire one-armed grab.
England looked poised to register a measly total before Tom Curran and Adil Rashid combined to resurrect the innings with a critical 76-run ninth-wicket partnership.
