Commentary

Australia won by 39 runs | England Vs Australia Live Score, 1st T20I

That's all we have got for you from here, do join us back for the 2nd T20I on Saturday, until then it's good bye from all of us here.....
Finch: 'It's good to come here and play some good cricket. The pitch was good for stroke play and I enjoyed my stay at the crease.
Bailey: 'It was an awesome innings from Finch, only Gayle's innings at the IPL comes close to it. Our bowlers were upto the mark, we are experimenting with the spinners with the T20 WC in Bangladesh in mind. We have some areas to improve and we will keep working on it. We mixed our length well and kept it short to Root. It was Fawad's first game and he was bit nervous.
Broad: 'Finch was terrific today and we didn't bowl in the right areas. 14 sixes was too much. It was a good wicket, but we didn't expect to chase this much. Hopefully we will put up a much better performance at Durham. Root was in top form today, but we were 2 short of our highest ever T20 score.
Aaron Finch is the Man of the Match for his blazing innings of 156 off just 63 balls.
A comprehensive win in the end for Australia. After being put into bat, Finch gave them a dream start and whatever he connected went out of the park and he ended up hitting the highest ever individual score in T20Is. Chasing 249 was always a tough ask, but England started the chase on a perfect note, but lost 3 wickets in space of 2 overs which derailed their chase. Root once again played a wondeful innings despite getting hit on the grill. In the end the Australian bowling proved to be the game changer as they used the yorkers frequently. Bopara also played a fine hand, but the pressure got to him eventually.
