ICC World 20-20, AUS vs ENG, Group B: Australia beat England by 8 wickets

Australia Cricket team England Cricket team Australia bounced back from the embarrassment of defeat against Zimbabwe to crush England by eight wickets in a World Twenty20 match at Newlands on Friday.
Needing a win to advance past the group stage Australia produced an emphatic performance, bowling out England for 135 and then racing to victory in 14.5 overs. Left-arm pace bowlers Nathan Bracken and Mitch Johnson took three wickets each as Australia kept a tight clamp on the England batsmen.
Australian opening batsmen Adam Gilchrist and Matthew Hayden, who both fell early to reckless shots in the five-wicket defeat by lowly Zimbabwe, were back in dominant form. The pair shared a stroke-filled opening stand of 78 in 8.1 overs before Gilchrist was caught at long-on off leg-spinner Chris Schofield. Gilchrist made 45 off 27 balls while Hayden went on to make an unbeaten 67 off 43 balls.
The result meant that Australia topped the group, with England also going through to the Super Eights stage on net run rate ahead of Zimbabwe. All three teams won one match.
