He continued the action despite the wickets falling on another side. Vince (16) & Tom Ponton (15) were out back to back. And then Sam Billings collabrated with him.

Shock for England

Bairstow, who was so aggressive, scored 82 runs off 41 balls was dismissed. The back to back wickets of skipper Eoin Morgan & Moen Ali in the same over, stunned & shocked everyone. They both went back for 0 runs in the same over. Then, however, David Willey, who came next played a responsible game alongside with Sam Billings.
