New Delhi. First the havoc of rain and then Australia's attack. England's team seems to be in trouble in the T20 World Cup. On Sunday night, Australia defeated the English team by 36 runs. The Australian team scored 201 runs against the English team captained by Jos Buttler. In reply, the English team could only score 165 runs for 6 wickets.

Australia and England are in Group B of the T20 World Cup. Australia defeated England and is at the top of the group with 4 points. England has only one point after two matches and is at the fourth place in the points table. In the same group, Scotland is second with 3 points and Namibia (2) is at the third place. The top-2 teams from each group will enter the Super-8.

To make it to the Super-8, England will not only have to win both their remaining matches, but they will also have to keep an eye on Scotland's matches. If Scotland wins one more match and has a better net run rate, then England will be out of the race for the T20 World Cup title.

Talking about the match between Australia and England, the Kangaroos led by Mitchell Marsh batted first. Their top-5 batsmen played explosive innings. Although none of them could score a half-century, it did not cause any harm to the team. David Warner scored the highest 39 runs for the team. He scored these runs in just 16 balls. Mitchell Marsh (35), Travis Head (34), Marcus Stoinis (30) and Glenn Maxwell (28) played innings. Matthew Wade scored 17 and Tim David scored 11 runs.

England had a good start while chasing the target of 202 runs. Captain and opener Jos Buttler (42) and Phil Salt (37) laid a good foundation for the team by scoring 73 runs in 7.1 overs, but the later batsmen could not take advantage of it. England had to face defeat due to the middle order faltering. The entire English team could score only 165 runs for 6 wickets in the stipulated 20 overs.
