Highlights, England vs Australia, T20 World Cup 2021: Buttler helps England win with 50 balls to spare

22:53 (IST)

That brings us to the end of our coverage of the clash between England and Australia. The English sit pretty on top of Group 1 with another resounding victory while Australia are now third in the standings. We will be back tomorrow with our live coverage of Aghanistan versus Namibia and the big one: India vs New Zealand. 

22:46 (IST)

Eoin Morgan: "The challenge for us is adapting to conditions away from home, we did that really well in the first two games then a big test against a really strong Australia. We were relentless with our lengths, and our plans. The bowlers came up trumps. Depending on how the wicket plays, you have to get one or two guys to go to, and they came up trumps. The openers look in really good form, Roy was Man of Match against Bangladesh and today Buttler followed suit (with a good performance). They are all hard ones, we treat everyone with the same respect, it's a tough competition, we go from here to Sharjah for two games in five days."

22:38 (IST)

Aaron Finch: "We lost a few wickets in the Powerplay. We had to hang in there, get to a total we thought would be defendable. Woakes is a brilliant exponent when there's seam early. We had to bowl them out, but Buttler played a hell of an innings. We got off to a poor start, but a couple of days off to recharge, but we'll dust ourselves off and come back for Bangladesh."

Buttler propels England towards target

England lost the wickets of Jason Roy and Dawid Malan, but the blitzkrieg of Jos Buttler has ensured that England are still firmly in the driver's seat. He got to his fifty off just 25 balls, the joint-fastest in the T20 World Cup.  

21:54 (IST)

After 6 overs, England are 66/0

Jos Buttler and Jason Roy have gotten England off to a flyer as they chase a paltry target of 126 runs. Their chase has so far gone perfectly from ball one! The six Powerplay overs have fetched 66 runs. That last over from Mitchell Starc brought them 18 runs! England's 66 runs is the highest score in the Powerplay by a team at the T20 World Cup.

21:22 (IST)

Australia all out for 125 

Australia have set England a target of 126. Barring a fighting 44-run knock from Aaron Finch and handy contributions from Matthew Wade (18) and Ashton Agar (20), the Aussies really struggled. A tall order for Australian bowlers to defend the paltry total.

20:49 (IST)

After 15 overs, Australia are 67/5

34 runs out of that total have come from the bat of Aaron Finch, who has patiently built his innings while the rest of the top order has collapsed like bicycles. The Aussies desperately need some runs in the last five overs if they have to give their bowlers something to defend.  

20:22 (IST)

After 10 overs, Australia 41/4

The Australians have really struggled in the first half of their innings. At one point, they were staring down the barrel with the score at 21/4. After losing David Warner, Steven Smith, Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis early on, Aaron Finch and Matthew Wade have done well to stabilise the innings. But with just 10 overs left, they now need to slam their foot on the accelerator pedal. 

19:47 (IST)

Australia in trouble

After three overs, England have sent back David Warner and Steve Smith with some incredible bowling from Chris Woakes and Chris Jordan, some incredible fielding from Chris Woakes and some incredible captaincy from Eoin Morgan, who gave Jordan the third over rather than persist with Adil Rashid.

Australia are 11/2 after three overs! 

19:30 (IST)

Rashid to get the proceedings underway

Adil Rashid rarely bowls in the Powerplay, but here he is with the ball as Australia start their innings. David Warner taking strike with Aaron Finch standing in the non-striker's end.

England vs Australia, Latest Updates, T20 World Cup 2021: An unbeaten 71-run blitz from Jos Buttler helped England to chase down what was a paltry 126-run target to begin with. But England dropped just two wickets and chased down the target with 50 balls to spare! Just incredible T20 hitting from Buttler to keep England atop Group 1. Australia are third now in the Group 1 standings, below South Africa.

Preview: High-profile rivalries continue to come along in the T20 World Cup 2021, and Saturday’s second match will witness England and Australia going head-to-head, in what promises to be an enticing encounter.

Both Eoin Morgan’s men and Aaron Finch and Co have maintained a 100 percent record in the Super 12 so far, having won both their opening couple of games.

While England thumped West Indies and Bangladesh in their opening games, while Australia battled hard against South Africa before easing past Sri Lanka in their second match.

A win for either team on Saturday will ensure one foot in the semi-final, with two more games to spare in Super 12s.

Adam Zampa’s (2/12) contribution against Sri Lanka was complimented by productive spells from pacers Pat Cummins (2/34) and Mitchell Starc (2/27), who, in fact was seen limping off training following a leg injury. But, Starc showed his class, getting rid of the well-set Kusal Perera (35) and Wanindu Hasaranga (4).

In reply to the Lankans’ 154/6, David Warner roared back to form with a 42-ball 65, and he will be rearing to go once again, against England.

Moeen Ali has been England’s pivotal player on spin-friendly pitches in UAE, finishing with figures of 2/17 and 2/18 against West Indies and Bangladesh respectively.

Tymal Mills has been the find of the tournament for England so far. He has registered figures of 2/17 and 3/27 in the two matches so far, and will continue to step up for the team in the absence of Mark Wood, who has been sidelined due to an ankle niggle.

The last time these two teams met in the T20 World Cup was in the 2010 final, when Craig Kieswetter and Kevin Pietersen did wonders with the bat to give England their maiden trophy.
