England v. Australia

NatWest International T20 Series, England v Australia

Ageas Bowl, Southampton: Thursday 29 August 2013 18:30 (day 1 of 1)

Toss: England won the toss and elected to bowl.

Result: Australia win by 39 runs

England 1st innings

End of Over 20 (14 runs)
Bowler: James Faulkner
England: 209-6 (rr 10.45)

19.6
One Run
Faulkner to Root. Yorker, off stump backing away Slog, bottom edge to wicketkeeper for 1 run, fielded by Wade. Joe Root ends 90 not out and England have scored 209, yet have been well beaten. The home side did not bowl well but take nothing away from Aaron Finch. He hit his first of 14 sixes off his first ball as he smashed his way to the highest individual score in the history of International T20 cricket. England kept bowling length but he kept clearing the boundary with ease and with support from Marsh and Watson, Australia's total of 248 for 6 was never going to be chased down. England gave it a good go, starting well before losing three wickets in four balls to all but end the game as a contest. Joe Root played superbly after being hit in the mouth by a sharp bouncer to end 90 not out but England never got anywhere near the target and will have to bowl a lot better in the second match on Saturday.

APPEAL! Faulkner to Bopara. Half volley, to leg no foot movement working, mis-timed to mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Warner, appeal made for Run Out.

Australia: 248-6 (rr 12.40)

19.6
Two Runs
Dernbach to Faulkner. Yorker, off stump on the back foot driving, mis-timed to long on for 2 runs, fielded by Hales. England's ordeal in the field is finally over, they bowled poorly with the exception of the death overs from Dernbach but Australia were in irresistable hitting form. Aaron Finch smashed the highest ever individual T20 score middling the ball from ball one, when he hit Finn over square leg. Watson and Marsh chipped in and Australia's total of 248 should be more than enough to win this game with ease.

17.2

There are two twenty twenty matches to be played and despite being in top form, Michael Carberry does not get the chance to impress on his home ground. James Tredwell and Boyd Rankin join him on the sidelines, while Stuart Broad takes over from Alastair Cook as captain. Australia also go in with a change in leadership, George Bailey leads his side on the ground where he played County Cricket earlier in the year. Fast-tracked Pakistani born leg spinner, Fawad Ahmed makes his debut.
