Australia thrash England in T20 clash

Australia thrash England in T20 clash

The hosts continued their ideal T20I run to make it to the tri-series final which will be played in Auckland on February 21. Their batsmen completely struggled to come to the terms with the slow MCG pitch and somehow crawled to 137 runs for the loss of 7 wickets n their 20 overs.

England's performance represented a significant downturn from Wednesday's, when they started brightly with the bat and conjured some late drama with a spirited display in the field. Jos Buttler scored highest 46 runs for England where Kane Richardson took three wickets highest for Australia.

Buttler felt that the batting has let England down in the match at the MCG where none of the top four were able to make a meaningful contribution.

"The Big Show" was caught behind going for another huge shot, having smashed 39 from just 26 balls.

They could choose to leave the position vacate until their AGM in 2019 or convene a special meeting to hold an election. He has been credited with working to reform governance with a focus on greater transparency and accountability.

England now face back-to-back matches with New Zealand in Wellington [13 February] and Hamilton [18 February] as they attempt to join Australia in the final.

England struggled to get into their stride as openers Alex Hales and Jason Roy both fell cheaply, as the visitors stuttered to 16-2 within the first three overs. Australia chased down the target in 14.3 overs, and have qualified for the final of the tri-series. 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.

Dawid Malan was unable to replicate his heroics of the last game as he fell for ten, before James Vince and Buttler aimed to rebuild. At 70-4 in the 11th over, England could ill afford a collapse akin to the one that proved so costly in Hobart but the more circumspect approach from Buttler and Sam Billings left them needing a grandstand finish just to reach a relatively competitive total.

Billy Stanlake - 7/10 - Stanlake and opening partner Richardson took five of the seven England wickets as he finished with figures of 2-28. "If England can play well next game, all of a sudden they're a different team".
