GETTYAustralia vs England How to watch the T20 tri-series

Australia vs England

England, troubled by Australia's spinners, lost their last six wickets for 33 in registering a below-par total of 155.

England, who were put in by Australia, were off to a bright start with Dawid Malan starring with a 36-ball 50. New Zealand is the other team participating in the tri-nation series.

Eoin Morgan came to the crease and the England captain supported Malan as the pair continued to contribute at ten runs an over. Instead, when Maxwell clipped Curran to the ropes on 40, Hales fumbled the catch.

In the final worldwide fixture of the Australian season, ending England's 14-week tour Down Under, the old rivals battle in game three at the MCG on February 10, before the New Zealand leg of this series commences. However, another change of bowling proved fruitful as Morgan mishit a delivery straight to his opposing captain, David Warner, as Maxwell took his first wicket.

Malan was later caught by Andrew Tye off Maxwell, who also afforded Alex Carey a first stumping in what was his second T20I as wicket-keeper, with Willey the victim.

Adil Rashid and Tom Curran quickly followed as England slipped to 137-9 from 96-2.

However, England were able to wrestle back the advantage as early as the first over of Australia's response.

David Willey removed David Warner (4), Chris Lynn (0) and Travis Head (6) before the hosts surpassed their target of 156 with nine balls to spare, and Morgan felt England's performance after being sent in to bat first left them in a hard spot.

Maxwell was the pick of the bowlers with three wickets, while Agar took two and Tye, Richardson, Billy Stanlake and Marcus Stoinis chipped in with one wicket apiece.

Rashid returned from that attack by tightening up his bowling which eventually paid dividends.

He then sealed his century and Australia's win in the penultimate over with a six and a little help from Alex Carey.

Maxwell shared a 78-run third-wicket stand with Hobart Hurricanes hometown hero D'Arcy Short to rescue Australia from early bother.

Hales was dropped by Maxwell on five and rode his luck all the way to 22 but Malan looked imperious from the moment he arrived in the middle.

Yet England thought they had created the breakthrough in the 13th over.

Maxwell was named Man of the Match. Yet Maxwell stood his ground and was reprieved on the review although the decision still looked controversial after a number of replays.

Willey was the most successful bowler with three wickets, while Rashid and Mark Wood claimed one wicket each.

With this, Australia have won both their matches and sit atop the points table with 4 points in hand.

The limited-overs specialist struck 103* off 58 deliveries at the Bellerive Oval - including one final authoritative six - to add to his impressive bowling figures of 3-10 and ensure that the hosts successfully chased down a target of 156 in the Twenty20 clash.
