Match Highlights

England captain Jos Buttler put fierce rivals Australia in to bat at the Kensington Oval but quickly lost control as openers Travis Head and David Warner went on the rampage.

Moeen Ali bowled a tight first over but fellow spinner Will Jacks went for 22 runs, conceding three sixes as Australia's openers savaged the bowling.

Paceman Mark Wood also conceded 22 runs in his opening over as Australia raced to 55-0 in four overs, relishing a short boundary on one side of the ground.

Moeen made the breakthrough England desperately needed in the fifth over, bowling Warner for 39 and in the following over paceman Jofra Archer flattened the stumps of Head for 34, leaving Australia 74-2.

The run rate dipped slightly as Glenn Maxwell and Mitchell Marsh settled but Australia brought up their hundred in the 10th over, giving themselves a perfect platform for an all-out assault.

Boundaries continued to flow until Liam Livingstone had skipper Marsh stumped by Buttler for 35 with a looping leg-break to leave Australia 139-3 and Maxwell was caught in the deep off Adil Rashid in the following over.

Australia lost Tim David but Marcus Stoinis (30) and Matthew Wade kept up the momentum to take their side to the 200 mark, leaving England with a mountain to climb.

Archer was the pick of the bowlers, taking 1-28 off his four overs.

In the run chase, England started well, putting on 73 for the first wicket in just over 7 overs – Jos Buttler 42 and Phil Salt 37, however, thereafter the Australia bowlers applied the pressure and the England batters lost wickets regularly and were unable to keep up with the run rate required.

Wickets were shared by Josh Hazlewood , Pat Cummins, Marcus Stoinis and standout spinner Adam Zampa.

Reigning champions’ England, now move on to Antigua, to play Oman and Namibia, and try to stay in the Tournament.

Australia beat Oman in their tournament opener while England's game against Scotland was abandoned because of rain after just 10 overs of Scotland's innings.
