Opener David Boon's 75 took Australia to 253-5 which seemed to be not enough.
England appeared to be cruising to victory at Kolkata's Eden Gardens when Mike Gatting tried a reverse sweep off opposition captain Allan Border's first delivery and lobbed a simple catch.
A well-drilled and disciplined Australia side went on to win by seven runs.
