Australia thrash England to enter final of T20 tri-series

Australia leg-spinner Adam Zampa has questioned the T20 sides approach to spin after being left out for the triumph over England.

David Warner's white ball woes continued, but that wasn't enough to stop Australia from booking their spot in the Twenty20 tri-series final with a seven-wicket victory over England at the MCG.

A match-winning partnership of 65 between Glenn Maxwell (39) and D'Arcy Short (36 not out), plus cameos from Chris Lynn (31) and Aaron Finch (20 not out from five balls), got Australia comfortably home. The hosts ended on 138-3 after Australia captain David Warner won the toss and elected to field. This time he lasted just four balls, nicking a David Willey outswinger on two.

Australia rode on a strong all-round performance to outclass England by seven wickets in their Twenty20 worldwide (T20I) here on Saturday.

The dashing left-hander is the only member of the test side to have played for Australia in every format this summer and has struggled for form in the ODIs and T20s.

He and Short combined for 39 off consecutive overs from Liam Dawson and Adil Rashid to doom any hopes of an England fightback.

In Eoin Morgan's absence through a groin injury, Buttler offered a solid, if not spectacular resistance but it was the regular loss of wickets which really hurt the tourists.

Tom Curran - 1/10 - The young seamer was only given two overs as Lynn and Short took him for 23 from his spell.

The visitors nearly paid for another mix-up in the following over with James Vince certain to have been dismissed if Glenn Maxwell's throw had been on target.

James Vince was skittled by a slower ball from Andrew Tye before stand-in captain Jos Buttler (46) and Sam Billings (29) steadied the ship.

Kane Richardson was the most successful among the Australian bowlers with figures of 3/33 in his four overs while fellow pacer Billy Stanlake returned 2/28.

Their innings was epitomised by Morgan's replacement in James Vince who struggled for any sort of rhythm and ran terribly in his first competitive England match since the final Test in Sydney, being put out of his misery after an ugly 21.

This was all too like the Ashes, Australia proving far too dominant for a meek and mild England team who appear to have temporarily lost the mojo that saw them win the one-day series here so emphatically.
