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

Without captain Eoin Morgan, out due to a groin strain, the recalled James Vince and dynamic wicketkeeper Jos Buttler were left to stabilise the innings.

The unbeaten Australians are now assured of a spot in the February 21 final in Auckland after downing England by five wickets in Hobart and beating New Zealand in the series opener. "We didn't do that". "We never really felt like we had enough (runs)".

Alex Hales's 50th T20 worldwide 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.

Duly reprieved, Lynn set about clobbering some trademark blows, cutting short balls over the off side field, swinging a leg-side delivery over the rope behind square leg, then arrowing a boundary to wide long-on. Buttler batted through to the end, caught by Ashton Agar as he looked to strike a six down the ground, giving Kane Richardson three for 33.

"It's just the grounds and the situations we've got ourselves in probably that make it a little bit different in Australia". In those white-ball innings against England since the turn of the year, Warner has returned four single-figure scores.

The space race is on again - with a sportscar! He said: "Our investment to date is probably a lot more than I'd like to admit". Yesterday's exciting and admittedly risky launch, SpaceX says, could mean game over for its private space company rivals.

Aaron Finch joined Short at the crease as Australia cruised home by seven wickets with more than five overs to spare - closed out with consecutive sixes off the bowling of Willey.

After David Warner fell early, D'Arcy Short, Chris Lynn and Maxwell blasted the ball to all corners of the park to complete the easiest of victories at the MCG. He duly accompanied Short to the finish, leaving Australia's players with three T20 wins from three in this series and a spring in their step ahead of the Allan Border Medal awards ceremony in Melbourne on Monday night.

A reverse sweep off the second ball of the 10th over, bowled by Rashid, took Maxwell to 1,000 T20i runs. When he departed for 39 via a top edge to give Chris Jordan his second wicket, he was replaced by Finch who sealed a dominant performance with back-to-back sixes.

England face New Zealand on Tuesday in desperate need of a win, while Australia's next match is against the Black Caps on Friday. Lynn was once again beaten by the ball moving back into him first up, but this time saw the ball squirt away towards the off side rather than thudding into the stumps.
