Australia lost the wicket of Cameron Green early in their chase of 209 in the first T20I against England at Perth, but David Warner and Mitchell Marsh kept the hosts going strong before Adil Rashid castled Marsh for 36 to provide England another breakthrough. Earlier, Alex Hales and Jos Buttler dazzled with the bat as England finished with 208/6 in 20 overs against Australia in the first T20I of the three-match series. While Alex Hales smacked 84 off 51 deliveries, Buttler scored a brisk 68 off 32 balls.
