T20 World Cup AUS vs ENG Highlights: Australia beat holders England by 36 runs – The Times of India

Earlier in the game, Australia was invited to set the total, and boy, did they start strong! Right from the first ball, Travis Head and David Warner went all guns blazing, making the most of the fielding restrictions. They smashed boundaries effortlessly and totally dominated the Powerplay. Then, Mitchell Marsh stepped in and compounded the strong foundation laid by the openers. Despite the English pacers trying to slow things down, they couldn’t take wickets when needed. Marsh played a solid captain’s innings, scoring 35 runs. Australia hovered above 10 runs per over, with key contributions from Glenn Maxwell and Marcus Stoinis, pushing them past 200. In the chase, despite a strong start laid by the openers, England lost their momentum during the mid-overs phase, as wickets tumbled in quick succession, and unfortunately, they couldn’t recover from that collapse.
