Aussies book place in T20 tri-series final

Andrew Tye of Australia

England now need to back-to-back victories over the Black Caps in Wellington and Hamilton to stand any chance of heading home with the silverware but Buttler believes a desire to right some wrongs will go a long way.

"We still have a chance to make that final", he said. "We were determined to show what we are capable of and we didn't", said Buttler, deputising as captain for the injured Eoin Morgan.

'It was a disappointing day, especially after a poor performance in Hobart.

Both sides face a rushed buildup for what looks an evenly-matched contest.

However, England were bundled out for 137.

'We haven't showcased our ability as we know we can yet and there are guys in that dressing room who will be determined to come back strong'.

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.

Victoria saw an unemployment increase for the second consecutive month at 3.9 per cent from 3.5. Compared to January 2017, unemployment in Nanaimo has fallen from 5.9 per cent.

And he refused to write England off, adding: "They have a pretty similar team to the ODIs and they smashed us pretty well in that series".

In the left-hander's absence England's batting was unimpressive on a tricky MCG surface against Australia's varied and accurate attack which skittled New Zealand for 117-9 in Sydney.

"I don't think we quite know the extent of it yet, so we'll wait and find out".

"Losing three early poles, I felt the best way was to then to take some balls and kick on at the end, but that never really happened", he said.

Warner left England in trouble at 34-3 in the fourth over when he ran out Dawid Malan with a direct hit. "I struggled, I was trying hard and it didn't manage to work".

After David Warner fell early, D'Arcy Short, Chris Lynn and Maxwell blasted the ball to all corners of the park to complete the easiest of victories at the MCG.

The visitors lost 5 for 18 through their middle order and that could be extended to 6 for 33 if we include the fall of captain Eoin Morgan. After a dismal showing in the Ashes, England surprisingly thrashed Australia 4-1 in the ODI series and now they have put themselves in a precarious position in the T20I tri series as travel to New Zealand to play the Kiwis for the first time.
