Australia’s World Cup defence just got underway, but already it is hanging by a thread.
If Australia’s maiden T20 World Cup success last year told you anything, it was that it is very hard to qualify for the semi-finals if you lose more than one match. South Africa lost just one pool match but because of their poor net run rate missed the knockout stages.
It means Australia must beat England or risk missing the knockout stages unless an upset is pulled off by the likes of Afghanistan, who boast the brilliant Rashid Khan, along the way.
Here is what we learned from Australia’s crushing defeat.
