A video of Australian all-rounder James Faulkner. Faulkner says that it wasn't the best performance by Australia against England but he is sure that the Aussies can bounce back in time against New Zealand.

Faulkner says that they believed Australia will be able to chase down 270 but England bowlers bowled really well.

He says that his own performance wasn't a bad effort but as they didn't win so it didn't really matter.

England made an empathic start to their Champions Trophy campaign by dispatching arch-rivals Australia in a Group A game at Edgbaston on Saturday.

Ian Bell (91) anchored England to 269 for six before the hosts' bowlers did a commendable job to stop Australia at 221 for nine in 50 overs. Speedster James Anderson struck thrice and surpassed Darren Gough to become England's leading wicket-taker in One-day Internationals.

The Australian batting crumbled in the chase with the exception of their captain George Bailey (55). Australia had to lost to India in a warm-up match Tuesday after being bowled out for 65.

The chase for Australia was always going to be tough after their dangerous opening pair of Shane Watson (24) and David Warner (9) failed to fire.
