Abu Dhabi: Adam Milne is proving to be a danger for the English opponent as he sends back the opener on his first ball for mere 13 runs.

Bairstow had walked to the crease with Jos Buttler as Jason Roy was ruled out the game due to an injury he suffered against South Africa.

The opening partnership garnered 37 runs before the loss of the wicket after 5.1 overs. Bairstow leaned into a cover drive to play Milne, crunching this flat towards cover, where Williamson dived to the left and forward to take this.
