Adelaide: Australian Twenty20 captain Cameron White believes that while his team lost the first of two Twenty20 internationals to England, there are some promising signs that suggest the team is on the mend.
“The English team has shown through the summer they have been a very hard team to beat. There was a lot of stuff we could have done better and we only just lost, so there are some promising signs there,” The Sydney Morning Herald quoted White, as saying.
Australia posted 4-157 after White won the toss and batted. Shane Watson top scored with a brutal 59 from only 31 balls. Watson then claimed 4-15 from four overs.
But England snuck over the line at 9-158 to set a world record of eight consecutive T20 wins.
White said Watson’s display was a “class act”.
White said he would depart for Melbourne, and Friday’s final game of the two-match series, uncertain how to judge the Adelaide thriller.
