Australia vs England Stay Rating: Prepare for some afternoon fireworks. We’ll see cricket’s oldest rivalry renewed for the fourth time within the T20 World Cup. Fascinatingly, the Kangaroos haven’t crushed England on the mega-event since 2007, and the Three Lions gained the 2010 version of the occasion towards their arch-rivals at the exact same venue, Kensington Oval in Barbados.

England wants 202 to win

A good comeback by England, one has to say. Australia were 74/2 after 6 overs and 139/3 after 14 overs, but all they managed was 201. 

Australia: 201/7 after 20 overs.

Great spell by Archer

Jofra Archer bowls an excellent 19th over, giving away just 7 runs. He ends his 4-over spell with a wicket and an economy of 7. 

Australia: 193/5 after 19 overs.

210 on the cards

Australia: 185/5 after 18 overs.

Dangerous David departs

After being hit for six, Chris Jordan has claimed his revenge over Tim David. Getting him caught at the deep extra-cover. David goes to the dressing room after making 11(8).

Australia: 173/5 after 17 overs.

Leg spin to win

After Livingstone, it’s Adil Rashid’s turn to get a wicket. A half-tracker that Glenn Maxwell fails to dispatch into the crown and instead hits it straight to Phil Salt at deep mid-wicket. Maxwell goes for a scratchy 28(25).

Australia: 149/5 after 15 overs.

Spin strikes

Part-timer Liam Livingstone has handed England a crucial third wicket. He gets Mitchell Marsh stumped, and the Australian skipper departs for a handy 35(25).

Australia: 140/3 after 14 overs.

Maxi getting into his groove

After a sluggish start, Maxwell is turning it up now. He’s scored 15 runs in the last 8 balls. Mitchell Marsh: 34(23), Glenn Maxwell: 26(21).

Australia: 136/2 after 13 overs.

Marsh takes control

The Australian skipper is starting to strike quickly, but Maxwell is currently struggling. Mitchell Marsh: 26(19), Glenn Maxwell: 11(13).

Australia: 111/2 after 11 overs.

Australia cross 100

Despite a slowdown, Australia are striking at over 10 runs an over. Mitchell Marsh: 18(15), Glenn Maxwell: 10(11).

Australia: 102/2 after 10 overs.

Good comeback from England

After giving away 74 runs in the powerplay, England have put a stop to Australia’s quick scoring. Just 11 runs have come in the last two overs.

Australia: 85/2 after 8 overs.

Archer ends England’s ‘head’ache

Travis Head has followed partner Warner to the dressing room. This time, it’s Jofra Archer who gets the wicket. He outdoes the southpaw with an off cutter aimed at the stumps. 

Australia: 74/2 after 6 overs.

Moeen strikes!

David Warner departs after an incredible inning of 39(16). Moeen Ali gives England a much-needed breakthrough. However, one must say that Warner may have already won Australia the match.

Australia: 70/1 after 5 overs.

Wood, not on Mark

A costly first over to start. The speedster couldn’t find his line. Started with a full and then a short ball on the leg stump, both of which were dispatched by David Warner. Was then smashed for a six and four towards mid-wicket and ended with a dot. 22 off the over.

Australia: 55/0 after 4 overs.

Archer on

Eight runs from Jofra Archer’s first over. Good speed, but the pacer still finding his line.

Australia: 33/0 after 3 overs.

Jacks misfires

Head and Warner have hit Will Jacks for 22 in the over. Hitting him for three big hits, all slog sweeps on the leg side

Australia: 25/0 after 2 overs.

Spin from both ends, Will Jacks gets a go

Quite first over for Australia

Moeen got good spin and bounce in the first over, good spins for England as they have Adil Rashid and Liam Livingstone as well.

Australia: 3/0 after 1 over

Here we go!

David Warner and Travis Head are in the middle, and Moeen Ali has the new ball in hand.

Cummins comeback correct?

Australia has decided to bring Pat Cummins back into the XI, having dropped him for Nathan Ellis in the last game. The peculiar thing is that Ellis picked up two wickets for just 28 runs and still hasn’t been included in the side.
