Australia vs England: Third T20 squads, preview, and prediction

Jos Buttler wants another crack at Australia in Trans-Tasman tri-series

Jos Buttler wants another crack at Australia in Trans-Tasman tri-series

In their last T20I against England, Glenn Maxwell slammed a last-ball six to score a masterful century and lead Australia to a five-wicket victory.

Australia have defeated England for the consecutive second time by seven wickets in the ongoing T20I tri-series down under on Saturday. That encounter will likely decide Australia's final opponent though the men from Down Under can have a huge say if they beat the Kiwis at Eden Park (February 16).

The injury could prove to be a major blow for England with stand-in skipper Jos Buttler admitting he was unsure whether Morgan would be available for the New Zealand leg of the series.

Australia: David Warner (captain), Aaron Finch, D'Arcy Short, Chris Lynn, Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Alex Carey, Ashton Agar, Andrew Tye, Kane Richardson, Billy Stanlake.

Once again, Roy and Hales started the innings for England.

It was a memorable finish to the summer for Australia, who have recovered well in the tri-series after their ODI malaise. 'We were never able to get up to a score that was defendable, really. Billings and Buttler combined for an important 43-run partnership to ensure England posted a competitive total but Australia's tight bowling at the death ensured they kept the batsmen on a tight leash.

Winter Storm Forecast Improving; Nearly 7 Inches Today, 10+ By Sunday
Schools in Detroit shut for the day along with Wayne State University in Detroit and other schools across MI . A snowfall of 6-9 inches is expected as the storm will continue steadily throughout the day, officials said.

Stanlake has taken six wickets in the three matches so far while Richardson took 3/33 in the win at the MCG.

The defeat means England will need to win both of their T20 matches in New Zealand to stand a chance of reaching the Tri-Series final. There were no nerves for dynamic No.3 Chris Lynn, who skipped down the pitch second ball to whack a Willey delivery to the boundary. In the final worldwide match of the Australian summer, Finch returned for the hosts following a hamstring strain that he suffered during the preceding ODI series, but significantly Short was retained at the top of the order and Travis Head left out of the team that won in Hobart.

However, Vince fell for 21 as England slipped to 70-4 in the 11th over.

But questions are bound to be raised about stand-in T20 skipper Warner's relentless schedule after he lasted just four balls, nicking a ripping David Willey outswinger on two.

The tournament now moves across to New Zealand with the Kiwis facing England in Wellington on Tuesday, February 13.
