Update Australia retain top ranking in T20Is with five-wicket win over England

Australia held onto Twenty20 cricket’s top ranking with a five-wicket win Tuesday in the last game of a series that England had already clinched.

Mitch Marsh finished unbeaten on 39 and hit the winning runs as Australia chased down its target of 146 with three balls to spare at the Rose Bowl.

England provisionally took No. 1 spot in the T20 format when it led the three-game series 2—0 but needed a sweep to retain top ranking.

The series marked Australia’s return to international cricket for the first time since March following the shutdown for the coronavirus pandemic.

For England, it continued a positive run since it reopened international cricket in July with a test series against West Indies and followed up with series against Pakistan and Ireland.

England will now host Australia in a three-game ODI series, the first between the countries since England won the World Cup on home soil last year.
