Aus v Eng highlights today – Second one day international from Sophia Gardens, Cardiff (England) Saturday 16th June 2018. After winning the toss Australian team captain TD Paine decided to bowl first. England scored 342 runs in 50 overs with eight wickets down. The opener of the team JJ Roy faced 108 balls and scored 120 runs in his beautiful innings, he smashed twelve 4s and two 6s in his innings. When his wicket dismissed then it was (35.5 that, on the other hand, will do very nicely! A cross-seamer from Tye, zipping into the right-hander, catching the toe of the bat as it does so, and what a take from Paine! Changing direction to fling himself down the leg-side, and grabbing in one hand. Quite the recovery from his blow in the face just now! 239/4).
