England have lost consecutive ODIs for the first time since January 2017. The biggest concern is that it is their batting—considered to be their strength—that looks like the more vulnerable aspect of their game right now. #CWC19

A fantastic 100 from Aaron Finch and an exceptional bowling display from Behrendroff and Starc. Congratulations Australia on a superb win. #ENGvAUS

Speaking at the post-match presentation England captain Eoin Morgan said, ” A lot of today, we were outplayed. Thought we bowled well upfront. Little bit unlucky as Australia played and missed a lot. They built a fantastic partnership. Wicket got a little bit better, but still challenging. Wicket this morning was soft when we started. Choosing to bat would’ve been a horrific decision. Finch played really well, capitalized on the start he got. We pegged it back really well. For a long time it looked like they’d get 330. When you’re 20/3, it pegs you back substantially. Given the circumstances, it’s not hugely disappointing. Our fate is in our own hands. Everything we need to turn around is simple. Won’t search for anything that’s not there.
