ENG vs. AUS Highlights: AUS’s 33-Run Victory Knocks ENG Out

ENG vs. AUS Cricket World Cup 2023: Australia, captained by Pat Cummins, put on an outstanding display and beat England by 33 runs in Saturday’s World Cup match in Ahmedabad. Australia scored a robust 286 runs in its opening innings, outscoring England’s 253 runs. The result also eliminated England from the World Cup.

Player of the Match was to Adam Zampa, who took three wickets and let up just 21 runs in his allotted overs. Zampa’s bat play was also very important. When Zampa entered the game, Australia was behind 241-7 in 43.4 overs. It was his 29 off 19 that helped Australia to a challenging total.  During the match, he also made an incredible catch close to the backward square leg. Aside from Zampa, Marnus Labuschagne contributed with the best average among the Australian hitters, 71 off 83. Three runs separated Cameron Green from his half-century, while Steve Smith was out for 44 (52). Marcus Stoinis contributed a noteworthy 35 runs in 32 deliveries to Australia’s total as well.

After that, Mitchell Starc delivered a double punch, as England lost Joe Root and Jonny Bairstow in the 287 chase at a low cost. After doing some rebuilding, Ben Stokes and Dawid Malan left after finishing their own half-centuries. Liam Livinstone and Jos Buttler were duped by single-digit scores. Chris Woakes put up a little late resistance, but he had little help from the opposition.
