Stoinis Smiles, Australia Smile

Australia win by 36 runs and take all two points against arch-rivals England at the Kensington Oval in Barbados.

Zampa After Winning POTM

"We play England a lot, we know their players. We've trained here and know the dimensions. A massive breeze, getting England hitting to the long boundary, difficult to hit sixes and fours. Hard to play cross-bat shots against me. Some of the wickets in the Windies you need to sum up on the spot, looking at how Rash bowled as well helped. We have great depth with our bowling attack, playing all different roles."

Winning Captain Mitch Marsh:

"Very pleased, allround game was outstanding, great game. The powerplay was the difference in the game, we learnt lessons from the first game, to trust our games. The bowlers did their thing, we have an experienced group. Patty was outstanding, tough end to bowl with the wind going across. Needed hard overs from the big guns. We'll keep learning in these conditions, keep improving and keep progressing through the tournament."

Losing Captain Jos Buttler:

"They came out with a lot of intent, under a lot of pressure straightaway, we fought well, but they took wickets at crucial times and played really well. Hindsight gives lots of decisions you could have changed, extreme conditions with the short side and the wind. Jofra bowled really well but looked like he hasn't been away at all, such variety and skill. Great to have him back. Outside the powerplay was going to be the challenge, credit to Australia, their seamers were very consistent, making us hit to the long side. We came second today, but it's all laid out for us, what we need to do."

And That's That!

Australia too good on the day as England head back to the drawing board looking for answers. Thank you so much for joining. Until next time, take care.
