NatWest International T20 Series, England v Australia

Emirates Durham ICG, Chester-le-Street: Saturday 31 August 2013 14:30 (day 1 of 1)

Toss: Australia won the toss and elected to bowl.

Result: England win by 27 runs

Australia 1st innings

End of Over 20 (6 runs)
Bowler: Jade Dernbach
Australia: 168-9 (rr 8.40)

19.6
One Run
Dernbach to Ahmed. Slower length ball, down leg side backing away flick, to long on for 1 run, fielded by Wright. England tie the series 1-1 and it's a shame there isn't a deciding third match. Both matches have followed a similar pattern. The side batting first has made a great start and they have left too much work for the chasing team. This victory was set up by England's opening pair. Alex Hales was superb. Australia threatened at times with the bat through David Warner, George Bailey and Glenn Maxwell but neither of them were able to play the big match winning innings. England kept their nerve well in the field with notable contributions from Jade Dernbach and Danny Briggs.
