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.

End of Over 20 (26 runs)

19.6
Two Runs
APPEAL! Dernbach to Bailey. Length ball, outside off stump backing away driving, thick edge to third man for 2 runs, fielded by Wright, fielded by Buttler, appeal made for Run Out. Buttler missed the stumps so Bailey was safe.

George Bailey has taken 26 off the last over to put Australia into a great position. England were good in patches but they suffered against the superior hitting power of this Australia line up. England need to target the short straight boundaries like Australia did and they need to play out of their skins.

Australia hit 13 sixes on a pitch that has little margin for error. The full ball can be hit through the line. Stuart Broad and Chris Jordan were good for England. Ben Stokes and Jade Dernbach suffered.

Start of Australia Innings. This is the last game of England's horror tour of Australia. They have lost 11 out of 12 matches. This is their last chance to salvage some pride and they will have to do it chasing after Australia have elected to bat. Ben Stokes and Chris Jordan replace Michael Lumb and James Tredwell. Ben Cutting and Dan Christian get a game for Australia in place of Chris Lynn and Josh Hazlewood.
