Stuart Broad: England were sloppy in T20 defeats

England T20 Captain Stuart Broad said England were sloppy in the T20 Internationals against Australia after his side succumbed to yet another heavy defeat after George Bailey’s heroics led the way for the home team to take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the T20s, ensuring their dominance across formats.

Having lost the 1st T20 encounter,  Broad won the toss at the MCG and decided to bat on a batting-friendly surface. Australia managed to turn a few heads when Brad Hodge came in to open the bowling. He went for 10 runs  in his first and only over, but the other Australian bowlers had different plans for the night.

All of them stuck to their plan and didn’t allow any of the English batsman to settle down and accrue some runs. Youngster Josh Hazlewood took four wickets out of the nine fallen, and was also adjudged Man of the Match.Mitchell Starc, making a comeback into international cricket after a long layoff, struck early in his spell as he dismissed Luke Wright for a duck.

Jos Buttler top-scored for England with 22 off 28 balls, before Broad and Tim Bresnan added a valuable 34-run stand to push the total beyond 120.

Coming in to bat with a target of 131 to chase, openers Cameron White and Aaron Finch went off to an absolute flyer, amassing 48 off just five overs before Finch departed. Australia, in order to keep up the momentum, sent in Glenn Maxwell at No 3, but he failed to last long, falling to James Tredwell.

Then came George Bailey, and he stitched a quickfire 77-run unbeaten stand with White to take Australia across the finishing with an age to spare; 5.1 overs to be exact. Bailey murdered the English attack, scoring 60 off just 28 balls in an innings which boasted of seven boundaries and three big sixes. He hit Jade Dernbach for 18 in the 12th over and Tredwell for 13 in the 15th over to finish off the chase.

Earlier in the Australian innings, White started off brilliantly as he set the tone of the chase, and laid the platform for Bailey to run havoc. Bailey finished off things with a boundary.
