Just when Australia was cruising along to chase the target, Jofra Archer came into the attack and bowled a ripper of a delivery to dismiss set David Warner. Archer’s wicket paved way for England to get back into the match, which was until then dominated by the stellar batsmen of Australia.
Australia got off to a flyer with Aaron Finch and David Warner scoring runs as easy as walking in a park. They aligned the match in favour of Australia bringing the run-rate down to almost run a ball. England bowlers were looking ineffective except for some good deliveries in between, which were easily managed by the batsmen of Australia. They were smashing runs and tonking bowlers as if they were playing club level bowlers.
Jofra Archer too was ineffective in his opening spell going at a run-rate of over 9 without picking up a wicket. However, Archer helped England change the momentum of the match in his second spell, coming in at a crucial juncture in the match. Just when the match was looking almost over Archer first removed Finch, by setting him up for a bouncer but bowling a fuller delivery.
Then, in his final over, dismissed the dangerous Warner, who was making room to smash Archer through the off side, through a ripper of a yorker, which Warner couldn’t handle and edged it onto his stumps. This opened up the match for England, who were looking down and out in the whole match until then.
A complete U-TURN in the game.

If England get David Warner out quickly there might be a miracle. #ENGvAUS
Archer damaged the furniture here!
ARCHER STRIKES, and it's Warner who falls! Perfect inswinging yorker takes the base of leg-stump, and Australia are now 129/4 with Carey and Stoinis both new to the crease.— Guerilla Cricket #GCFromHome (@guerillacricket) September 4, 2020
Australia 133/4 off 16, need 30 off 24 - it SHOULDN'T be screw-uppable...#ENGvAUS🏏🏴🇦🇺#GCFromHome
