England's prowess in white-ball since 2015 cricket is well-documented and they have defeated the World Champions Australia just ahead of the World Cup. This will be a massive shot in their arm. Australia were fielding a strong team but England despite being in a stew in the first half of the first innings managed to stage a commendable comeback. Dawid Malan led the fight back and Moeen Ali joined him. Sam Curran and others chipped in with some skillful spells with the ball to defend 178. They had come from behind to win against Pakistan and now have humbled Australia.
