Malan expects the'never say die approach to serve England's Twenty20 side well

England next face New Zealand in consecutive matches in Wellington (Feb. 13) and Hamilton (Feb. 18) as they attempt to join Australia in the final.

The manner of their seven-wicket defeat at the MCG was painfully familiar for anyone who saw their slump in Hobart - a fragile first-innings total reeled in easily by a vibrant Australian XI crammed with talent from the Big Bash.

England have been in Australia since late October and although the T20I squad is vastly different from the Test players who started the tour, the Three Lions looked a bit tired in Melbourne. However, the focus now shifts to New Zealand as the second half of the T20 leg will be played in the Kiwi nation. First it was Billy Stanlake, who surprisingly rocked New Zealand and proved to be expensive against England.

However, at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, Maxwell hasn't been amongst the runs in the shortest format. In the match, Australia won the toss and opted to field first.

Eoin Morgan's men stumbled to a massively sub-par 137-7 from their 20 overs, with Jos Buttler the only man to provide resistance in Melbourne. Most of their players were failed and so, they did present a poor score in front of the Aussie team. If we look at the Top 5 run scorers for Australia since 2016 world Cup, Maxwell heads the list. Later, Australia came to chase the score and by losing only three wickets, they made the chase successful.

Stanlake has taken six wickets in the three matches so far while Richardson took 3/33 in the win at the MCG. Jos Buttler will captain England for the match. Hales and Roy were also opening that day, with Morgan completing the trio. There isn't much most bowlers can do when he's hitting the ball like that, but the bowlers need to support their batsmen better, even if it calls for some changes in the department.

Buttler and James Vince tried to stem the rot with a 36-run stand over the next six overs before the latter was bowled by a full length slower delivery from Tye.

However, Vince fell for 21 as England slipped to 70-4 in the 11th over. Later, Buttler and Billings played and added few runs where Billings scored 29 runs so far.

England's team selection for the last game had some questionable inductees.
