Result: England crash to defeat in second ODI against Australia

Australia defeat England in a one-day international match that is marred by Ben Stokes's controversial dismissal for obstructing the wicket during a run-out attempt.

England have slipped 2-0 behind in the one-day international series against Australia after the visitors won by 64 runs at Lords in a match overshadowed by controversy.

The game was marred by an obstructing-the-field dismissal when Ben Stokes was given out after the ball stuck his hand while he took evasive action.

Steve Smith hit 70 and Mitchell Marsh 64 from 31 balls as the Aussies reached 309-7 from 49 overs.

Captain Eoin Morgan was the standout performer for the hosts, striking four sixes during a knock of 85, but England were all out for 245.

Stokes's dismissal for obstructing the field marked the first time an England player has ever been penalised for the offence, and only the sixth time it has happened in one-day international history.

The third of the five one-day contests will take place at Old Trafford on Tuesday.
