Australia hammer England again to book spot in T20 tri-series final

Australia hammer England again to book spot in T20 tri-series final

With leg-spinner Adam Zampa again overlooked, man of the match Kane Richardson (3-33), Billy Stanlake (2-28) and Andrew Tye (1-29) did the damage.

England had earlier posted a modest 137-7 from their 20 overs after stand-in captain Jos Buttler was the only England player to make a substantial score, but even he needed 49 deliveries for his 46.

In Eoin Morgan's absence through a groin injury, Buttler offered a solid, if not spectacular resistance but it was the regular loss of wickets which really hurt the tourists.

Warner feels numerous players took confidence from excellent Big Bash League campaigns with the side taking on the look of a BBL team of the tournament.

Having won the toss and elected to bowl, Australia - who beat New Zealand in their opening contest - quickly put the ball to good use and had England reeling on 3/43. "I don't think we quite know the extent of it, so we'll wait and find out", added the stand-in skipper. It'll be a nice change of scene, I think, for the England side. "We were determined to show what we are capable of and we didn't", said Buttler, deputising as captain for the injured Eoin Morgan. "We haven't showcased our ability as we can, and there are guys who are determined to come back strong", he is quoted as saying by Cricbuzz.

Senior White House Officials Knew of Rob Porter Abuse Allegations
Therefore they were investigated as part of the background check as this process is meant for such allegations. At any rate, the president is reportedly unhappy with the way the White House has handled the Porter story .

Power openers Jason Roy and Alex Hales departed early which saw momentum grind to a halt.

The result leaves England needing to win both games against New Zealand, live on Sky Sports Cricket, to be sure of a place in the final and one more chance to get the better of Australia in the shortest format. "We never really felt like we had enough (runs). I'll have to improve and look at where I went wrong".

In front of a 42,691 crowd at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, Short (36 not out), Maxwell (39) and Lynn (31) contributed with crucial boundaries to seal their third consecutive win of the tournament with 33 balls to spare.

"It was a disappointing day, especially after a poor performance in Hobart (a five-wicket defeat)".

He is expected to travel with the T20 side to New Zealand before heading straight to South Africa for the first of four Tests.
