Australia vs England, 1st T20I, Highlights: After Alex Hales and Jos Buttler's swashbuckling opening partnership helped England set a 209-run target for Australia in the first T20I, Mark Wood tormented the hosts with the ball as the visitors took a 1-0 lead in the three-match series in Perth. While Alex Hales smashed 84 off 51 deliveries, Buttler scored a quickfire 68 off 32 balls. Nathan Ellis, meanwhile, starred with the ball, picking three wickets for just 20 runs. Australia looked strong for large parts of their chase, with David Warner spearheading their effort and Marcus Stoinis playing a rapid cameo. But Wood turned the game on its head when he dismissed Stoinis and Tim David in the same over before coming back to end Warner's knock for 73. Sam Curran then got Matthew Wade in the final over to end Australia's hopes as they were restricted to 200/9. (SCORECARD)
