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.
