Australia Suffer Eight-Wicket Defeat By England

DUBAI: Jos Buttler smashed an unbeaten 71 as England hammered Australia by eight wickets to register their third successive win in the Twenty20 World Cup.

England fast bowlers Chris Jordan and Chris Woakes shared five wickets between them to bowl out Australia for 125 after they elected to field first in Dubai.

Buttler and Jason Roy, who made 22, put on 66 runs for the opening wicket as the 2010 champions romped home in 11.4 overs to hand Australia their first loss of the tournament.

Earlier, Chris Woakes led an inspired England attack to rattle Australia and dismiss them for 125 in a pre-Ashes showdown between the two rivals at the Twenty20 World Cup on Saturday.
