- Australia’s Finch-hitter walloped an astonishing 156 runs from just 63 balls to put victory beyond doubt before England had even begun their innings.
- England replied with some superb hitting of their own in the perfect example of what a short-form game should be, but Joe Root’s unbeaten 90 off 49 balls in his first international Twenty20 innings was only ever going to be the consolation in a losing cause.
- Finch enabled Australia to amass an imposing 248 for six and Australia would have surpassed the highest T20 international score of 260 had Jade Dernbach and Steven Finn not struck three late blows to restrict the scoring.
