The England cricketers held their nerve to beat Australia by five runs in a thrilling finish to their one-off Twenty20 international in Cardiff.
The home captain Eoin Morgan smashed a superb 74 off 39 deliveries to lead his side to 182 for five, and despite a brilliant 90 by the Australia skipper Steve Smith, the touring side fell just short of their target.
The teams start a five-match one-day international series in Southampton on Thursday.
Meanwhile the Indian cricketers are seven wickets away from sealing their series against Sri Lanka after setting the home team a 386-run victory target on the fourth day of the third and final test in Colombo.
In a weather-affected contest India made 274 in their second innings, effectively batting the opposition out of the contest, and Sri Lanka went to stumps on 67 for three.
