The second Twenty20 between England and Australia on Sunday will be live on BBC One, but what can you remember about the first time the sides met in the shortest format 15 years ago?

There were explosive openers, flamboyant middle-order batsmen and no frontline spinners in either side. How times have changed…

England won the game in Southampton – the same venue as Sunday’s match – by 100 runs after posting 179-8 from 20 overs.

But can you remember who featured that day? You have five minutes to name 22 players. The England players are first, followed by the Australians.

Good luck!
