Australia on Saturday won their second ODI comfortably by 64 runs. A solid team performance helped Australia to reach just one step away from the ODI series win. Batting first Australia scored 309 with the help of Steve Smith (70), George Bailey(54), Mitchell Marsh (64) and Maxwell (49).
With the ball in hand, Pat Cummins took 4 wickets with a solid assistance from Glenn Maxwell and Mitchell Starc. But, after the convincing win a controversial incident has rocked the cricket world.

No point discussing what Stoke’s intention was. They can never find out unless they add some brain activity monitors as part of DRS #EngvAus

Whether you feel @benstokes38 was out or not out. In his defence most batters would of had that same natural instinct to protect themselves.

Ben Stokes walked in to request his fans andd cricket lover not to cry for his unfortunate out. But, people are as cruel as Austalia in this aspect of the second ODI at The Lord’s.
