Glenn Maxwell century seals Australia T20 tri-series win over England

Preview: Having beaten New Zealand in the opening match of the Trans-Tasman Twenty20 Tri-series, Australia will hope to make the most of the momentum when they face England in the second match of the tournament.

England were 1-60 at the end of the power-play and looked on track for a score around 200 until Maxwell (3-10) and fellow spinner Ashton Agar put the squeeze on through the middle overs. We haven't had a lot of success in T20 cricket for the last few years.

They were 2-4 after four balls when swing bowler David Willey had David Warner caught in the deep and bowled Chris Lynn for a duck.

Willey finished with three wickets for 28 off three overs.

Mark Wood bowled a straight ball that Maxwell whipped to the leg-side.

Adil Rashid (1) got the toe end of the bat on a shot off Billy Stanlake and was well caught by Stoinis, while Tom Curran (6) was well held by a back-peddaling Warner after failing to pick Tye's knuckle ball.

After a hard start to the ODI series, Head has been in top form of late, with 96 in the Adelaide Oval ODI followed by unbeaten knocks of 85* and 44* in the KFC BBL elimination games to help the Adelaide Strikers team he captains to a first title.

Short admitted the step up from domestic cricket to the worldwide stage was a big one after a whirlwind weekend that saw him make his global debut and collect the BBL Player of Tournament award after his Hobart Hurricanes lost the final.

Hobart is the capital of the state of Tasmania.




Travis Head has replaced spinner Adam Zampa in the only change to the Australian side which cantered to a seven-wicket win over New Zealand in the series opener on Saturday night.

"I didn't know what to expect but I went in with an open mind", Short said on Tuesday.

For England there is plenty of overlap with the ODI squad, which is no surprise considering how aggressively Eoin Morgan's unit have attacked the 50-over game in recent months.

A spectacular all-round performance from Glenn Maxwell has helped Australia snare a five-wicket win with nine balls to spare against England at Hobart's Blundstone Arena.

England were able to include all of Alex Hales, Jason Roy and Chris Jordan after injury concerns, while room was found for Tom Curran after his five-wicket heroics in the final ODI last week.

Surely he will now be one of the first picked when the coloured clothes are ordered.

David Warner (capt), D'Arcy Short, Chris Lynn, Glenn Maxwell, Travis Head, Marcus Stoinis, Alex Carey, Ashton Agar, Andrew Tye, Kane Richardson, Billy Stanlake.

Third T20I Australia v England, MCG, February 10.
