Yes 221 looks massive, but it really could've been a lot worse had it not been for those last three overs where Australia saved themselves some further blushes. So it was an innings that started in the fifth gear, refusing to slow down. Buttler and Roy smashed like they have been,
Hales wasn't any different and the poor bowlers couldn't get their act right. The only bowler, who restored some normalcy through the middle overs was Swepson, with a couple of wickets, but given how tiny the boundaries are and the belter of a track this is, the momentum kept relaying itself. This is precisely what the Aussies need to draw confidence out of .. with a lot of pride left at stake.
