Maxwell stars again as dominant Australia reach final

Maxwell stars again as dominant Australia reach final

Since the opening match of the tournament, Australia was showing their tremendous performance in the T20I competition.

Preview: Australia will look to maintain their winning momentum when they meet England in the Twenty20 tri-series clash at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on Saturday.

However, earlier the tri nation series, Australia and England played a Test and a ODI series between them where Test series was known as Ashes. Now, once again this two giant teams have participated in the tri nation series where the new member is New Zealand. Jos Buttler scored highest 46 runs for England where Kane Richardson took three wickets highest for Australia. Bowling sharply, he was the most expensive Australian bowler, but came away with three big wickets, dismissing Roy, Willey and Jos Buttler.

Glenn Maxwell - 8/10 - Maxwell top scored for Australia with 39 from 26 balls.

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

He fell to Chris Jordan in final over of the powerplay Australia were 51-2.

Glenn Maxwell, who scored a stunning century in the five-wicket triumph last time out, top scored again for his side with 39 as the hosts chased down England's 137-7 easily.

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

Maxwell's third substantial contribution of the series ended with 22 runs still required, as he swung presumptuously at a slower bouncer from Jordan and skied another catch for Buttler, but this at least afforded Finch the chance to bat for the first time since he was injured last month.

Sam Billings - 6/10 - Supporting Buttler as England rebuilt their innings, Billings added a very useful 29 runs in the latter overs.

Australia did not face any problem while chasing down England's total as riding on Glenn Maxwell's blistering ton, they reached home with 9 balls to spare.
