The Australian cricket team’s return to international cricket during the Corona period was not good and the team suffered a close defeat in the first T20 match against England. England, batting first, scored 162 runs in 20 overs thanks to David Malan’s best innings. The Australian team, chasing the target, was given a strong start by opener David Warner, captain Aaron Finch. Despite this, the Kangaroo team could only manage 160 runs for six wickets in 20 overs and lost the match. The Kangaroo team may have suffered defeat, but Captain Finch has taken a special record during this time.
Finch completed his two thousand runs in T20 cricket during his innings of 46 runs with the help of seven fours and a six in his 32 balls. Although he is the tenth batsman to complete two thousand runs in T20 cricket, he has left behind the players in terms of speed. If we talk about scoring two thousand runs in the lowest innings, then Finch is second in this case. While Finch achieved this position in the 62nd innings, Team India captain Virat Kohli has done this feat in just 56 innings.
In this match, at one time Australia was moving towards an easy win but the team deviated from the rhythm of the dismissal of Captain Finch. On the score of 124 runs, Rashid gave Smith the second blow to Australia by sending the pavilion. Smith hit two fours and a six in an innings of 18 off 11 balls. After Smith’s dismissal, Rashid made Maxwell on one run and Archer took Warner’s wicket to make the match exciting. For Australia, Marcus Stoinis tried to win the match in the last minute but could not succeed. Stoinis remained unbeaten on 23 off 18 balls with the help of a six. For England, Archer scored 33 runs in four overs and Rashid took two wickets for 29 runs in four overs while Mark Wood got one wicket.
