Maxwell survives to steer Australia past England

Australia vs England, T20 tri-series: Build up and team news ahead of opener

The 2018 Trans-Tasman Twenty20 Tri-Series continues Saturday with another Australia vs England fixture at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.

Batting first in their opening match of the tri-nations series, which also features New Zealand, England suffered a middle-order collapse before rallying to reach 155-9 in Hobart, where Maxwell (3-10) led Australia's attack.

Jason Roy and Alex Hales are due to reclaim their positions at the head of the innings, despite David Willey smashing Ashes-winning spinner Nathan Lyon for 34 in an over when asked to deputise. Roy's stay at the crease was brief after being deceived by a wide slower ball from Kane Richardson in the second over but runs flowed at the other end.

A Glen Maxwell unbeaten hundred has managed to get Australia over the line against England in the latest T20 worldwide.

We arrive in the last action and we were not able to do that. "I think it's a joke if you are a youth team manager", said Neville. It's one big game of snakes and ladders , and eight of those teams will be rolling the dice this afternoon.

Dawid Malan's [50] second consecutive T20 half-ton was the sole highlight for the visitors, with Hales and Morgan [both 22] the only other players to top 20. He was ably supported by Alex Hales with 22 from 15, and captain Eoin Morgan, also 22 from 14 balls.

Australia's stand-in skipper David Warner won the toss and invited England to bat first.

England still looked set for a total around 200 when they reached the midway point at 96-3 before wickets started to tumble on a regular basis. Two balls later Willey lit up Chris Lynn's wickets. The pair seemed capable of driving Australia all the way to their target, but Rashid intervened with an exceptional, one-handed return catch to intercept a Short drive drilled straight back at the leg spinner.

Australia lost Warner and Chris Lynn within the first four balls of the run-chase.

However, new kid on the block D'Arcy Short - fresh from his sublime Big Bash campaign - put on 78 quick runs with Glenn Maxwell, before being caught-and-bowled off Rashid.

The Australian all-rounder finished the match with 103 runs off just 53 balls.

Rashid returned from that attack by tightening up his bowling which eventually paid dividends. Coming in to face England, Australia will hope to display the allround performance and take a precious win over England. He struck ten boundaries and four massive sixes.

Yet England thought they had created the breakthrough in the 13th over.

"I told him to get a two, because I had not much left in me, and he goes, "yeah, sure", and then (he) punched one (for a single) and walked down to me and said 'there you go, good luck, '" Maxwell told Grandstand after the match. Yet Maxwell stood his ground and was reprieved on the review although the decision still looked controversial after a number of replays.
