Australia thrash England to book final berth

Australia thrash England to book final berth

From there Australia's innings accelerated, as D'Arcy Short compiled a fine 36 not out, with Chris Lynn piling on 31 and Maxwell's fluent knock featuring two maximums, as he became the fourth Australian to pass 1,000 T20 worldwide runs.

The game-defining sequence came when Maxwell and Short accelerated the score from 65 for two at the end of the ninth over to 104 for two after the 11th, 39 runs flowing over just two overs.

The triumph at the MCG was Australia's third in as many matches, beating New Zealand in Sydney before back-to-back victories against England.

Australia's Glenn Maxwell, Chris Lynn and D'Arcy Short fired with the bat to secure an emphatic seven-wicket victory over England as the hosts booked a place in the T20I tri-series final on Saturday.

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.

England are yet to win a single match in the ongoing tri-series against Australia and New Zealand.

That is despite Australia fielding a side shorn, Warner aside, of all its Test stars ahead of the forthcoming series in South Africa.

"The bowlers executed their game beautifully and the way the batters finished it off was absolutely clinical".

England need back-to-back wins over the Black Caps in Wellington and Hamilton to stand any chance of heading home with the silverware but Buttler believes a desire to right some wrongs will boost them.

It was a second drubbing for England after going down by five wickets to Australia in Hobart on Wednesday. I was hoping to be better than a run-a-ball with five overs to go and then really kick on, but it never happened.

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

James Vince's run-a-ball 21 and an eye-catching 29 from Sam Billings was about as good as it got for them, despite accounting for the unsafe David Warner (2) early in Australia's response.

Stanlake (2-28) and Richardson (3-33) did the damage for Australia.

Did not bat: L. Dawson, A. Rashid, T. Curran.
