At the Narendra Modi Stadium in Motera, Ahmedabad, England and Australia squared off in a Day/Night match during the ongoing ODI World Cup 2023. This is the oldest rivalry in cricket history. Thanks to strong all-around team efforts, the Pat Cummins-led team won handily in the end.
Travis Head and David Warner both were dismissed cheaply for the Australian openers, who were batting first, so they did not have a nice start.
Despite Australia's efforts to steady the innings with late smashes from the tail-enders, they were bowled out for 286 without having played the full 50 overs allotted.
In the chase, England lost Jonny Bairstow as their first wicket on the opening delivery. England was never really able to bounce back as wickets continued to fall at regular intervals. The Three Lions eventually lost the match by 34 runs after being bowled out for 253 in 48.1 overs. The shock defeat meant that the reigning champions were eliminated from the competition.
Brief scores: Australia 286 in 49.3 overs (Marnus Labuschagne 71, Cameron Green 47; Chris Woakes 4-54, Adil Rashid 2-38) beat England 253 in 48.1 overs (Ben Stokes 64, Dawid Malan 50; Adam Zampa 3-21) by 33 runs
