  • David Warner has scored only 10 runs in two matches in the ongoing tri-series

England have lost skipper Eoin Morgan to injury for their Twenty20 tri-series clash with Australia at the MCG, where the hosts have won the toss and elected to bowl. 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.

Kane Richardson - 8/10 - Australia's fast bowler led the charge in Melbourne, taking 3-33.

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.

However, after a quickfire 31 - from just 18 balls - he skied an attempted slog off the bowling of Chris Jordan, coolly taken by Buttler, to reach 52/2 after six overs.

Head is second on the list with 182 runs in 8 matches followed by Finch (158), Henriques (146) and Klinger (143) respectively: As context, Maxwell has scored more T20I runs than the next two-highest Australians combined.

Maxwell was th highest scorer for AUstralia with 39 runs off 26 deliveries which included three boundaries and two sixes.

With one game remaining for the Australians, victory will ensure they make the final after downing England by five wickets in Hobart and beating New Zealand in the series opener.

Australia invited England to bat first, thinking the wicket would get better for batting as the match progress. Malan scored 10 runs and Vince scored 21 runs respectively.

Pique fit to start for Barcelona against Valencia
Colombian defender Yerry Mina made his Barcelona debut on Thursday by replacing Gerard Pique late in the match. Barcelona are the only side to have ever reached five consecutive finals of the Copa del Rey cup.

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

D'Arcy Short also impressed in compiling his 36 not out as Australia easily chased down England's 137-7.

Billy Stanlake - 7/10 - Stanlake and opening partner Richardson took five of the seven England wickets as he finished with figures of 2-28.
