The ICC T20 World Cup 2021 match between Australia and England proved to be a lop-sided encounter. The England cricket team absolutely dominated their arch-rivals at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium. A fine half-century from Jos Buttler helped the England cricket team defeat the Australian cricket team by eight wickets in Dubai. Chris Woakes took a brilliant catch and it was the highlight of the game.

With this win, the England cricket team has tightened its grip over the number one position in the Group 1 standings of the Super 12 stage. England have won all three games played so far in the competition. Meanwhile, Australia suffered their first defeat of the competition. They have slipped below South Africa now because they lost the match against England with 50 balls remaining.

Before the Jos Buttler show, the English bowlers impressed fans with their disciplined bowling effort. Man of the Match Chris Jordan returned with a three-wicket haul, while Tymal Mills and Chris Woakes accounted for two wickets each. Even Adil Rashid and Liam Livingstone bagged one wicket each for England.

The wicket of Steve Smith was the most crucial one because he generally saves the Aussies from collapses in the batting unit. However, a miraculous catch from Chris Woakes helped the England cricket team dismiss Smith while he was in single digits.

Twitter heaps praise on Chris Woakes for that fantastic catch

Chris Jordan bowled a short delivery outside off that Smith tried to pull. He could not time the ball well and the ball went towards fielder Chris Woakes in the mid-on area. Woakes jumped and took a one-handed blinder. Here are the top reactions to that catch:
