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

England slumped to a five-wicket loss in their opening match of the Trans Tasman Series

Marcus Stoinis was the most economical bowler, with just 18 off his allocation, and Kane Richardson finished with three wickets including Buttler from the final ball of the innings.

However, the in-form D'Arcy Short and the devastating Chris Lynn choked England with their aggressive approach.

For now he will carry on doing things his way, starting with Saturday's second T20 game against here at the MCG that England really need to win if they are to avoid a battle with New Zealand to reach the tri-series final.

Maxwell and Short combined for 39 off consecutive overs from Liam Dawson and Adil Rashid to end any hopes of an England comeback.

Warner must have eyed the modest target as a chance to play his way into form but his post-Ashes travails against the white ball continued. This time he lasted just four balls, nicking a David Willey outswinger on two.

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

It was a second drubbing for England after going down by five wickets to Australia in Hobart, Australia, on Wednesday.




Even Buttler, the Englishman most capable of destroying any opponent, was subdued while top scoring, scoring at fewer than a run a ball before he holed out off the final delivery to put the seal on an under-whelming batting performance. "We didn't quite soak up the pressure early on with the bat, losing early wickets to back it up for the end and none of us kicked on".

On a hard track to score on, England's stand-in skipper Jos Buttler was the lone ranger with the bat with a 49-ball 46.

Warner left England in trouble at 34-3 in the fourth over when he ran out Dawid Malan with a direct hit.

'It's always nice to win but I wouldn't read too much into us having the wood over them.

Billings struck the only six of England's innings when he smashed Ashton Agar over long-on in the 14th over, but he fell to Stanlake, with Warner taking the first of two catches at mid-off.

England will play without regular skipper Eoin Morgan, who strained his right groin during training and was replaced by James Vince.

Complementing Richardson's three wickets for Australia were Billy Stanlake (2-28) and Andrew Tye (1-29).
