It's been a long time coming, but England finally won their first match against Australia, securing a 57-run win over Australia in the fourth ODI in Perth.

While it was all smiles after the match, it was less calm on the field.

Ben Stokes, who scored 70 with the bat and then picked up four wickets with the ball, dismissed the dangerous James Faulkner to perhaps turn the match decisively England's way—and had a few choice words for him by way of a send-off.

You can see his reaction above, but Twitter was fairly unequivocal about what he'd said to Faulkner:

England have been well below their recent levels on this tour, but the performances of Stokes with bat and ball have been a highlight of the trip.

That said, with his outburst having been picked up by the stump microphones, he could now face action from the match referee.
