There was a time when it was difficult to beat Australia. Whatever the format, this team had the power to beat every team on every field and this team has given it too. But today the story is different. Australia is not that strong team. This team can be defeated. England on Saturday inflicted one of their worst defeats to Australia in the ICC T20 World Cup-2021 on Saturday.
In the match played at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium, England came out to bat and bundled out Australia for just 125 runs. This target was achieved by the world champion of the ODI format for the loss of two wickets in 11.4 overs. England won with 50 balls to spare. This is Australia’s biggest defeat so far with the ball remaining.
His record was against Pakistan before England. In 2012, in a match played in Dubai itself, Pakistan defeated Australia with 31 balls to spare. Eight years later, England, moving ahead of Pakistan, handed a worse defeat to Australia.
By the way, in the same year West Indies had defeated Australia in Gros Islet with 31 balls to spare and had equaled Pakistan’s record but could not break it. Now though England has broken the record.
In the same year, New Zealand defeated Australia in the match played in Wellington with 27 balls to spare. This is Australia’s third biggest defeat with the ball remaining.
In 2009, West Indies defeated Desert Iceland Australia with 25 balls to spare. This is Australia’s fourth biggest defeat with the ball remaining.
