T20 World Cup: England title defence hits setback with damaging defeat to Australia

England captain Jos Buttler urged his team to "dust ourselves down and go again" after a damaging 36-run defeat by ruthless Australia in Barbados on Saturday left their T20 World Cup defence in the balance.

Australia raced out of the blocks at the Kensington Oval on Saturday, posting 201-7 in their 20 overs. England wickets then tumbled after a bright start as they struggled to 165-6.

Buttler's men, who flopped badly when defending their 50-over title in India last year, are still winless after their opening game against Scotland was wrecked by rain.

Opener David Warner top-scored for the winners with 39 while spinner Adam Zampa was player of the match after taking 2-28, including the crucial wicket of Buttler for 42.

"They came out with a lot of intent and played really well and put us under a lot of pressure straight away," Buttler said. "It was tough to drag it back from there. They bowled really well in that middle phase, took wickets at regular times and defended really well."

Buttler said England needed to play with a lot of confidence in their remaining games against Oman and Namibia.

Buttler won the toss in Bridgetown but watched in horror as Australia's openers Warner and Travis Head savaged his bowlers.

Spinner Will Jacks was smashed for 22 runs in his first over and paceman Mark Wood also conceded 22 runs in his opening over as Australia raced to 55-0 off four overs, relishing a short boundary on one side of the ground.
