UPDATE 1-Cricket-Carey, Maxwell lifts Australia to a dramatic win over England

* Australia wins with two balls

Centuries before Carey and Maxwell are turning the tide

* England set impressive goal of 302 tons after Bairstow (adds details)

MANCHESTER, England, September 16 (Reuters) – Glorious centuries of Alex Carey and Glenn Maxwell inspired Australia to a dramatic three-wicket victory over England on Wednesday as the touring squad took the one-day international series 2-1.

The pair scored 212 points for the sixth wicket after Australia fell to 73-5 after a stiff 303-point goal in the final game of the series.

Jonny Bairstow scored 112 when England recovered from losing their first two wickets on the first two balls of the game and scored 302 for seven in their 50 overs after winning the toss.

Australia lost their first five wickets cheaply, but fought back brilliantly to win two balls to spare against the world champions and inflict their first home day series defeat in five years.

England got off to the worst possible start when Jason Roy drove a thick outer rim to the back point and Joe Root was caught in the trap of the first two balls of the innings by Mitchell Starc.

However, Bairstow began a recovery and England quickly pushed the run rate above six.

A 114-run partnership for the fifth wicket between Bairstow and Sam Billings (54) formed the backbone of the innings and Chris Woakes also contributed a quick half century to bring England past the 300-run.

Woakes then took the first two wickets of the Australian innings before Root, with his part-time off-spin, lashed out David Warner and Mitchell Marsh cheaply to remove the top order from the tourists.

When Marnus Labuschagne crossed the line in the 17th, Australia dropped to 73-5.

However, Carey and Maxwell fought back and lustfully dragged Australia back into the game, requiring 21 runs from the last 18 balls to win.

They looked like they were ditching a winning position when Maxwell top spinner Adil Rashid and was caught by Tom Curran for 108 of 90 balls and 10 balls later, Carey was caught by Mark Wood on third man on Jofra Archer for 106.

Australia needed 10 runs for the final that England captain Eoin Morgan bravely entrusted to Rashid. Starc hit a six off his first ball and hit another boundary to win the game, bringing a busy summer of international cricket to an exciting end.

England had a busy three-month period where they crammed six tests and 12 limited-overs internationals all playing behind closed doors in a bio-safe bubble due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
