England beat Australia by eight wickets



  • Australia warmed up for this showdown with old enemies England with a comfortable 2-0 series victory against West Indies, but Jos Buttler’s side should provide a significantly tougher challenge.
  • All-rounder Marcus Stoinis has stated that he is fit to play following a side strain which ruled him out of those fixtures vs the Windies and he is likely to be selected in this one with it being crucial that he gains match sharpness ahead of the T20 World Cup.


  • England’s limited overs captain Jos Buttler is expected to make his return to the side after missing the entirety of their seven-match series against Pakistan despite travelling over with the squad and the big question is whether Alex Hales or Phil Salt will get the nod to open with Buttler.
  • Another England player who didn’t feature in Pakistan was Test skipper Ben Stokes and the all-rounder will use this series to get some much-needed time out in the middle in the T20 format both with bat and ball.


England will arrive in Brisbane fresh and sharp after a long series in Pakistan, but it may take them time to adjust to the change in conditions and environment. It could also take both Butter and Stokes a game to settle back into their respective rhythms following extended absences. Australia though, are coming off the back of an excellent display against West Indies and motivation will be high against their biggest cricketing rivals. Having settled back into Australian conditions well, back the hosts to continue their good form and win this first match.
