Maxwell stars again as dominant Australia reach final

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

"We still have a chance to make that final", he said. "We haven't showcased our ability as we can, and there are guys who are determined to come back strong", he is quoted as saying by Cricbuzz.

The hosts chased down England's modest total of 137-7 with seven wickets to spare in Melbourne, with James Vince replacing the injured Morgan. While it is not quite a must win at the Westpac Stadium, a defeat would leave England's progress out of their hands, with New Zealand also having a game in hand against Australia.

Pacemen Kane Richardson and Billy Stanlake claimed five wickets between them as Australia restricted England to 137 for seven after being sent into bat in the third tri-series Twenty20 global at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on Saturday.

Earlier, a disciplined bowling effort from Australia helped them restrict England to a score of 137 for 7 in 20 overs.

Tim Southee captained New Zealand to victory over Pakistan at their last visit to Westpac Stadium last month.




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. England were reeling at 34 for three in the fourth over when Warner ran out Dawid Malan (10) with a brilliant direct hit.

Wellington's Westpac Stadium will host a rare Tuesday night global between the Black Caps and England. 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. "I'll have to improve and look at where I went wrong".

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 global runs. England's bowlers never had enough runs on board to defend and hence struggled to put any pressure.

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.
