This tri nation competition is known as Trans-Tasman Tri-Series which is organised by Australia and New Zealand.

Stanklake finished with two wickets and Kane Richardson three as England failed to curtail its desire to hit out at all costs, a strategy which brought them undone with the under par total.

In the inaugural match, they beat Black Caps where in the 2nd match which was against England, Australia once again won by five wickets.

A nightmare start, meanwhile, to the fourth one-day global in Adelaide last month, when they lost five for eight, then cost them their chance of inflicting a 5-0 drubbing on Australia. It's a pretty similar England team to the ODIs and they smashed us pretty well in that series.

Australia leg-spinner Adam Zampa has questioned the T20 sides approach to spin after being left out for the triumph over England.

The most fluent batting came from Sam Billings, something of a almost man in this England side, who hit 29 off 23 balls including one outrageous left-handed pull for four off Andrew Tye. In the match, for England Jos Buttler played as captain where the regular captain Morgan was injured.

Buttler produced the top-score of the match but laboured for his 46, while the likes of D'Arcy Short, Chris Lynn and Glenn Maxwell all batted with unfettered freedom in a speedy chase.

Maxwell is now the fourth highest run-getter for Australia in T20Is. Australia took only 14.3 overs to reach the destination.

Once again, Roy and Hales started the innings for England. 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.

Breaking up the developing partnership of Malan and James Vince was also key, though, and Warner deserves all of the acclaim for that.

'You want to play the conditions as well as you can, but if you have scored 100 after 10 or 11 overs you expect to score 200, especially with small boundaries like here. Willey scored 10 runs for the team England.

Buttler, stand-in skipper for the day, shared a stand of 43 with the lively Sam Billings (29) and remained in place until the final ball of the innings but never looked close to his fluent best. The strategy worked. Australia's collective bowling effort throttled England at 137 for 7 in 20 overs.
