Led by Jos Buttler and Alex Hales's pyrotechnics, England beat Australia by eight runs to go 1-0 up in the 3-match T20I series.

Put into bat, England made 208-6 — after an opening partnership of 132 between Alex Hales (84) and Jos Buttler (68) — to leave Australia needing to achieve a record T20 run chase by any team against the English

Australia was on course to do it, getting to 158-3 midway through the 15th over when Marcus Stoinis (35) and Tim David (0) fell in the space of four balls from Mark Wood.

Then Wood, off the final ball of his four overs, snagged David Warner for a team-high 73 as the opener holed out to Hales in the deep

The match was in the balance but England took three wickets in the last eight balls of the chase to get home in Perth, with Australia finishing on 200-9

Wood had 3-34 and Sam Curran 2-35. Buttler hadn't played since injuring his calf in August while Ben Stokes, who scored 9, returned to England's T20 team for the first time since July 2021

Steve Smith was among six big names missing the match for Australia. The home side also rested Adam Zampa, Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood, Pat Cummins, and Glenn Maxwell.

A good match between both the teams, Victory belongs to England. Let us see how will win the 2nd t20.
