Australia beats England by 7 wickets in T20 tri-series match

Jos Buttler wants another crack at Australia in Trans-Tasman tri-series

Australia defeated England by seven wickets with 33 balls to spare in the final match of the summer on Australian soil, and in the process secured a spot in the tri-series final. His 43 was the only innings of note and at 49 balls ranked as the slowest of his 20 knocks of 25-plus in the format.

"It was another poor performance from us", said Buttler. "We didn't do that". We didn't soak up the early pressure and lost wickets.

Alex Hales's 50th T20 global lasted 11 balls as he was caught smartly by Aaron Finch, who had to run back from mid-on to catch the ball over his right shoulder at the second attempt.

James Vince's run-a-ball 21 and an eye-catching 29 from Sam Billings was about as good as it got for them, despite accounting for the risky David Warner (2) early in Australia's response.

After winning the toss and electing to bowl, stand-in skipper David Warner left England reeling at 3-34 in the fourth over when he ran out Dawid Malan with a brilliant direct hit.

D'Arcy Short walks on to the field to bat.

Australia captain David Warner credited the Big Bash League for his team's dominance in the shortest form of the game.

From there Australia's innings accelerated, as D'Arcy Short compiled a fine 36 not out, with Chris Lynn piling on 31 and Maxwell's fluent knock featuring two maximums, as he became the fourth Australian to pass 1,000 T20 worldwide runs. "It will be a nice change of scene in New Zealand".

However, that brought the in-form Glenn Maxwell in the middle who continued the good work done by Lynn.

However, after a quickfire 31 - from just 18 balls - he skied an attempted slog off the bowling of Chris Jordan, coolly taken by Buttler, to reach 52/2 after six overs.

Following the emphatic seven-wicket win in Melbourne, Australia have sealed their place in the final, having struggled against England in the ODI's and after the comprehensive Ashes series win.

But also, in the lead up to the 2020 T20 World Cup, Warner is, for just about the first time in his career, not an automatic selection in the side.
