On the basis of useful innings of the top batsmen and disciplined performance of the bowlers, Australia defeated England by 36 runs.

327 runs were scored in the South Africa vs New Zealand match
Earlier in 2010, a total of 327 runs were scored in the match between South Africa and New Zealand. Even at that time, no player from both the teams could touch the 50 mark. Ireland and Oman are at number three in this list, who scored a total of 311 runs in the 2016 World Cup. This is Australia's second consecutive win, which has taken them to the top of Group B. England is still waiting for their first win. They now have to face Oman and Namibia, while they had to share points due to the match against Scotland being washed out due to rain.

Warner and Head put on a 70 run partnership
After being invited to bat first, David Warner (39) and Travis Head (34) gave Australia an aggressive start by adding 70 runs in the first 5 overs. After both of them returned to the pavilion within four runs, captain Mitchell Marsh and Glenn Maxwell took the responsibility. Marsh scored 35 runs in 25 balls which included two fours and as many sixes. Maxwell scored 28 runs in 25 balls with the help of three fours and a six. After this, Marcus Stoinis made a useful contribution by scoring 30 runs in 17 balls and Pat Cummins made an unbeaten 17 runs in 10 balls.

Butler and Salt added 73 runs for the first wicket
Chasing the target, Phil Salt and captain Jos Buttler added 54 runs in the power play. Both of them shared a 73-run partnership for the first wicket. After 10 overs, England's score was 92 for two wickets, but after that Australia bowled tightly and their fielding was also excellent. England's later batsmen Moeen Ali (25), Harry Brook (20 not out) and Liam Livingstone (15) could not score runs as fast as expected.
