James Vince dismissal vs Australia: England opening batsman gets beautifully cleaned up by an inswinger bowled by Jason Behrendorff

During the 32nd match of the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 between England and Australia at The Lord’s Cricket Ground in London, Australian fast bowler Jason Behrendorff drew first blood as he dismissed the English opening batsman James Vince in the very first over of the match.

It all happened in the second delivery of the England innings. Behrendorff, who is only playing his second match of the World Cup, bowled an absolute peach of a delivery to shun the England opener James Vince for a duck (0 off 2).

It was almost an unplayable delivery, for someone who is just two deliveries old at the crease. The ball swung late into Vince, as the left-arm pacer bowled a full delivery to send the middle stump for a walk in the park. Vince, was all over the place, looking to flick the delivery, instead of playing it presenting the full face of the bat.

England in deep trouble

Chasing a decent enough total of 285/7 posted by Australia in the first innings, all England wanted was a good enough start to the innings by negating the threat of the new ball Aussie bowlers, especially Mitchell Starc, who has been the highest wicket-taker in the tournament so far.

After Behrendorff drew first blood, Starc took full advantage of the now on backfoot English batting, as he dismissed both Joe Root (8 off 9) and skipper Eoin Morgan (4 off 7) within the first six overs.

At the time of writing, Jonny Bairstow (21* off 27) and Ben Stokes (0* off 9) were at the crease, with England reeling at 35-3 after 9 overs.
