The  T20 World Cup 2024  clash between England and Australia witnessed an incredible highlight as Aussie captain Mitchell Marsh broke the solar panel above the  Kensington Oval in Bridgetown, Barbados. The 2021 T20 World Cup winners registered a convincing 36-run win to take the top spot in Group B with two wins in two games. 

The match ebbed and flowed incredibly with both teams finding moments to get on top before Australia broke forward and sealed the win in convincing fashion. Batting first, the opening pair of David Warner and Travis Head gave Australia the perfect start before the English came back with two quick wickets. Then the responsibility was on the shoulders of Mitch Marsh and Glenn Maxwell to steady innings.

Mitchell Marsh's six off Adil Rashid smashes into solar panel on Kensington Oval

This duo started cautiously and then took the aggressive approach to help Australia post 201 runs. During this partnership, Mitch Marsh took on Adil Rashid who came for his second over. Marsh played two dot balls before smashing a monster six off the backfoot. That maximum zoomed up before crashing one of the solar panels above the  Kensington Oval.

Very pleased with that effort, our all-round game is outstanding:  Mitch Marsh

Talking about Australia's dominant win over arch-rivals England, Mitch Marsh praised his bowlers for their effort in batting-friendly conditions. Speaking in the post-match interview, Marsh said,  "Very pleased with that effort, our all-round game is outstanding, it was a great game. The way we started, we learned a lot of lessons from the first game and the boys turned up really well today."

"The bowlers did their thing so well, we are an experienced team. Patty was outstanding. It was a tough end to bowl, wind was coming in. We need to keep learning from these conditions, keep improving and keep progressing through the tournament," he continued.
