Nine days after the defeat Pakistan in the Twenty20 World Cup championship match at the MCG, England’s one day squad were smashed by Australia for 221 runs on Tuesday, giving Australia a 3-0 series victory.
England’s one day squad were smashed by Australia for 221 runs on Tuesday, as Australia won the series by three games. This came nine days after Australia defeated Pakistan in the T20 World Cup final at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.

Jos Buttler’s observations
Buttler told the BBC following England’s biggest defeat in this format: “It was always going to be a difficult series for us, after the World Cup.”
“Every time England play Australia, you want to put in a fantastic performance, but it’s been difficult.”
“To be completely honest, I don’t give a damn about the results. We got everything we hoped for from the trip to Australia.”
“The fact that several players from England’s test squad are already in Abu Dhabi for preparations for their tour of Pakistan could also be used to determine the nature of their busy itinerary.”
“We live in a different era,” added Buttler, noting how the state of cricket has changed significantly in recent years.
“Many people are debating how to keep the relevance of two-sided cricket, and I think this series is a good example of how maybe not to do that,” said the author.
“To be honest, I have a little sympathy for gamers, especially young ones who are just getting into the game.” “The calendar now doesn’t seem to give you the opportunity to play all formats, which is what you want to achieve.”
