Second T20 International - England v Australia

4th June 2012

by Steve Field

Of the four matches planned for this series, the first and fourth were rained off. The second and third took place on the same day at Leamington CC. England won both matches and so took the series 2-0.

In the first of the two matches England faced a less than lethal attack with Ray Moxly out for the tour and Peter Robinson rested. Even so Dan Field deputised ably for the rested Andy Powers as Matt Dean’s opening partner. They accumulated 104 in 11 overs. Field himself was injured and restricted himself to driving with a perfectly executed one to the cover boundary which even Nick Haydar applauded. Matt Dean was also injured during the course of his hard-hitting century which he brought up off 66 balls with 3 boundaries. Despite needing a runner, Dean was prolific in the ‘V’ and at the fall of the only wicket Mo Khatri contributed a brisk 20 off 15 balls.

When Australia batted they were reduced to 27-3 after 4 overs by the opening attack of Rob Comber and Luke Sugg. Comber bowled Matt Horsey and debutant Matt Page brilliantly caught Brett Wilson off the bowling of Sugg. When Justin Hollingsworth bowled Nick Haydar for 21 at 98-6, defeat was inevitable. Three run outs for Sugg to add to his impressive figures of 3.5-0-19-3 meant that they won a crushing victory by 74 runs by bowling Australia out with over 5 overs to spare.

Leaving aside the effects of injury and Ashes victory celebrations, England looked a different team in their inaugural T20 match to the one that handed the Ashes to Australia.
