A comprehensive win for the hosts after scoring a mammoth 221. Short and Maxwell were nipped out in the powerplay. Then it was Australia's regular nemesis - the spin twins. Moeen Ali and Adil Rashid reduced the Australians to 72/5 in the ninth over.
Just as the match was heading towards a boring one-sided encounter, skipper Aaron Finch upped the ante and kept his team in the hunt. But that enthralling knock was put off by the leg-spinner Rashid - who finished with figures reading 4-0-27-3! The pacers provided the finishing touches to wrap up the match.
