Australia stumbled from the beginning
In the second T20I played at the Southampton ground, Australian captain Aaron Finch won the toss and decided to bat first. But his decision proved wrong and Aussies team lost their 3 wickets for 30 runs in 5 overs. After that Finch and Marcus Stoinis tried to take over the team.

After that Marcus Stoinis also became the victim of Adil Rashid for 35 runs. Under this, the wickets kept falling at regular intervals of the Aussies team and finally, in 20 overs, the Australian team was able to score 157-7.

Jos Buttler is the hero of England’s victory
Chasing a target of 158 runs, England tried to get off to a decent start but Johnny Bairstow was unable to do anything special in this match as in the first match and unfortunately scored 9 runs and got hit-wickets on Starc’s ball. But at the other end, opener batsman Jos Buttler attacked the Australian bowlers, continuing the form of the previous match. Buttler teamed up with England’s man-in-form batsman Dawid Malan to reach the team’s score of 13.2 overs 106. For the third wicket, both these batsmen shared 87 runs and brought the Aussies team to the backfoot. Meanwhile, Malan missed a half-century and was dismissed after scoring 42 runs. But wicketkeeper-batsman Buttler continued his fiery game and in the end, with Moin Ali, England managed to reach the score of 158-4 runs with 7 balls remaining and won by 6 wickets. Jos Buttler made the English team victorious with sixes. Buttler was also adjudged Man of the Match for his fine half-century innings. He hit 77 not out off 54 balls with 8 fours and 2 sixes.
