Australia v. England

Australia v England Twenty20 Series 2014

Stadium Australia, Sydney: Sunday 2 February 2014 19:35 (day 1 of 1)

Toss: Australia won the toss and elected to bat.

Result: Australia win by 84 runs

England 1st innings

End of Over 18 (1 run)
Bowler: Mitchell Starc
England: 111 (rr 6.17)

17.2
Run Out
OUT! Run Out. Starc to Jordan. Slower ball short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, mis-timed to deep mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Christian, fielded by Wade. It's almost fitting that it ended in a farcical run out. Dernbach didn't listen to Jordan's call and was run out by a distance.

Australia take the series 3-0 and overall this winter they have won 12 matches to England's one. The gulf between the sides has been that wide.

Today's game was a microcosm of the winter. Australia were more powerful, had more penetration with the ball and were better in the field. It's been an incredibly tough winter for England and they have many questions to answer in all formats of the game.
