Australia wins toss, will bowl 1st vs England in MCG T20

He scored a 40* against New Zealand and followed it up with an unbeaten 103 against England.

England played without regular skipper Eoin Morgan, who strained his right groin during training and was replaced by James Vince.

The injury could prove to be a major blow for England with team doctors yet to make a call on whether Morgan will be available for the New Zealand leg of the 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.

Short played through to wrap the game up for Australia with Aaron Finch (20 not out) at the other end.

In front of a 42,691 crowd at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, Short (36 not out), Maxwell (39) and Lynn (31) contributed with crucial boundaries to seal their third consecutive win of the tournament with 33 balls to spare.

Australia won the first two matches against England and New Zealand.

While Warner has struggled with the bat since scoring 441 at 63 during Australia's 4-0 Ashes triumph, his performance in the field has been typically second to none. He duly accompanied Short to the finish, leaving Australia's players with three T20 wins from three in this series and a spring in their step ahead of the Allan Border Medal awards ceremony in Melbourne on Monday night. We didn't manage to soak up that early pressure.

Alex Hales - 2/10 - Hales made just 2 as England once again got off to a poor start.

The Australians restricted England to 137 for seven off their 20 overs. England were reeling at 34 for three in the fourth over when Warner ran out Dawid Malan (10) with a brilliant direct hit.

The unbeaten Australians are all but assured of a spot in the February 21 final in Auckland after downing England by five wickets in Hobart and beating New Zealand in the series opener ahead of Saturday's match.

Liam Dawson - 2/10 - Dawson only bowled two overs before being taken off after Australian batsmen attacked the spinner.
