England claim one-off T20 win


England beat Australia by 5 runs in an exhilarating match at NatWest T20 International cricket tournament. The host batted first, posting a score of 182-5. England captain, Eoin Morgan, hit seven sixes on his way to a thrilling 74, and shared a third-wicket partnership of 135 with Moeen Ali, who finished on 72 not out. In reply, Australia looked to be cruising to victory, with captain Steve Smith scoring 90 off just 53 balls. When he was caught by Billings, his team needed just 18 runs for the win. However, hosts took 5 for 16, including three wickets in the last over, to clinch a 5-run win in the one off T-20. The teams will now contest a five-match one-day international series, starting on Thursday.
