Australia seal victory in style and Maxwell also completes his ton. He needed three and hits one for the maximum, Australia win this one by 5 wickets! They have won 2 in a row.

17:26 (IST)

Another big over for the Aussies, and that might well have sealed the deal here. 11 runs coming off it, and they require 17 off 18 balls. Maxwell had aired one but Billings couldn't get around it properly. Australia 5/139 here.

17:19 (IST)

WICKET! Tom Curran strikes, superb yorker and Head looks to heave it over mid-wicket but completely misses. The ball goes onto clatter the stump.England continuing to show some fight. Aus are 129/5

17:14 (IST)

Tom Curran bowls a great over there, managed to fire the ball in deep and into the block hole mostly to give away only 6 runs. Australia will take confidence from the fact that Maxwell is still there and he has Travis Head for company, who is also a recognised batsman. Australia need 39 runs from the last 5 overs

17:09 (IST)

Final 6 overs remaining now, Jordan with a tight over for England. Australia 111/4, need 45 more from 36 balls.

17:03 (IST)

WICKET! or maybe not, Glenn Maxwell mishits one and its Jason Roy at the boundary. He comes in and gets his hand underneath that one, Maxwell stands. Sof signal is out, but replays show that the ball had hit the ground. Clarke, in the commentary box argues that he got his fingers underneath the ball. Third umpire doesn't think so and its not out.

16:55 (IST)

WICKET! Wood strikes but it might well be a blessing in disguise for Australia. Stoinis was really struggling to get away, and he airs one. Morgan takes a simple catch running from mid-on. Australia 98/4.

16:50 (IST)

Maxwell completes his fourth half century in T20I. His first fifty against England.

16:50 (IST)

Stoinis playing a lot of dot balls for now, not that it makes much of a difference to Maxwell who brings up his half-century with a boundary! What a fine innings it has been from him and hosts would want him to continue. Australia 90/3

16:41 (IST)

WICKET! Rashid strikes, after being taken for runs, the leg-spinner finally strikes. D'Arcy Short hits one hard but straight back to Rashid who takes a good reflex catch. Australia  82/3

16:39 (IST)

​2nd third wicket partnership for Australia in this series.

This fifty run stand between G Maxwell and D Short  came in 29 balls.

Maxwell 21* and D Short 28*

16:35 (IST)

The Big Show is certainly here! Glenn Maxwell taking Rashid to the cleaners, 2 huge sixes and Australia get 15 runs from the over. They move onto 74/2 after 7 overs.

16:29 (IST)

Big over for Australia, Maxwell smashing a couple of boundaries and then also a maximum. Australia get 15 runs from that over, they are 59/2 at the moment.

16:26 (IST)

D'Arcy Short certainly not holding back now, smashes Curran for a straight six. Australia 48/2 after 5 overs.

16:21 (IST)

Tight over from Chris Jordan, concedes just 4 singles from that one. Australia move onto 34/2 after 4 overs.

16:15 (IST)

Maxwell and Short have certainly taken the attack to the English after couple of early blows for the hosts. A couple of 12-runs over and Australia move onto 30/1 after 3 overs.

2 Vs India

8 Vs India

25 Vs Sri Lanka

16:05 (IST)

WICKETS: David Willey gives England the perfect start, Warner is caught in the deep after trying to play a pull shot. Th eleft arm paceman then picks up the big wicket of danger man Chris Lynn, cleaning up the right hander. England are on top here.

16:03 (IST)

David Warner starts off proceedings with a great shot off the first delivery. Hits it straight down the ground for a boundary

15:57 (IST)

ENG:155/9 in 20 overs

Lets look at the 10 overs split of England’s innings.

In first ten overs England scored 96 runs and lost three wickets.

Whereas in the last ten overs they scored 59 runs and lost six wickets.

15:42 (IST)

20TH OVER: Chris Jordan and Mark Wood ensure England have something to bowl at, Jordan hits a big six off the last delivery as the Three Lions finish on 155/9 in their allotted 20 overs. This will be much less than what they would have thought at the half-way stage but the bowlers have something to bowl at

15:39 (IST)

Andrew Tye sends back Tom Curran and England are running out of steam now and it seems they will fall short of the 150-run mark

15:36 (IST)
15:30 (IST)

SIX: Billy Stanlake bowls another short one and Tom Curran has bludgeoned that into the crowd for a huge six. England are now 136/8 after 17 overs

15:28 (IST)

England will be struggling to get to 150 at this rate and they were on for a score over 200 at one point, when they were 96/3 after 10 overs

15:28 (IST)

WICKET: Rashid Ali shows his macho side with th bat but failes miserably. Stanlake digs that shorts and Ali goes for the pull shot, but is caught in the deep

15:25 (IST)


This is the 11th instance in 12 innings where S Billings has not faced more than 15 balls in his T20I career. Billings averages just 8.75 in his 12 innings in T20Is,barring his knock of 53 against Pakistan in 2015.

15:23 (IST)

WICKETS: Glenn Maxwell has done the trick for Australia, gets the danger man Dawid Malan out and then it is David Willey who is stumped off the next delivery. This is England committing hara-kiri at Hobart. Engalnd 127/7 after 16 overs. This match has turned on its head

15:21 (IST)

15TH OVER: Ashton Agar bowls another great over, sends back Billings and gives away only three runs. Dawid Malan has completed his half-century but the team is in shambles right now

15:17 (IST)

WICKET: Ashton Agar has done the trick again, he draws the batsman out and manages to get the ball to spin, Billings gets a leading edge and is caught by the bowler. England in major trouble now, Malan is still waiting to complete his half-century, he has been watching all th drama unfold on the other end for a while now

Australia vs England T20I Highlights - As It Happened

Preview: Having beaten New Zealand in the opening match of the Trans-Tasman Twenty20 Tri-series, Australia will hope to make the most of the momentum when they face England in the second match of the tournament.

The Australians are without Steve Smith and the rest of the men who will play the upcoming Test series in South Africa with the exception of David Warner, who is leading the side. The pressure will be on Warner after he scored only 73 runs in the recent five-match One-Day International series against England and also fell cheaply in the first game of the tri-series.

However, with Aaron Finch around and a hard-hitting middle-order – Chris Lynn, Glenn Maxwell and Marcus Stoinis – in place, Australia do have an explosive edge. The pace department will once again be led by Andrew Tye, the star of the game against New Zealand, and Billy Stanlake, who also put on an exceptional show. With Adam Zampa, Ashton Agar and Kane Richardson also in the mix, there is enough variety in Warner’s ranks.

But, in terms of momentum and confidence, England score big, having beaten Australia 4-1 in the ODI series recently. The major concern for England will be Jason Roy, who might not be available after picking up a back spasm during a warm-up game. However, should Roy not be ready in time, they do have reliable options in James Vince and Alex Hales.


Australia: David Warner (capt), Aaron Finch, Ashton Agar, Alex Carey (wk), Ben Dwarshuis, Travis Head, Chris Lynn, Glenn Maxwell, Kane Richardson, D’Arcy Short, Billy Stanlake, Marcus Stoinis, Andrew Tye, Adam Zampa.

England: Eoin Morgan (capt), Sam Billings, Jos Buttler (wk), Sam Curran, Tom Curran, Liam Dawson, Alex Hales, Chris Jordan, Dawid Malan, Liam Plunkett, Adil Rashid, Jason Roy, Ben Stokes, James Vince, David Willey, Mark Wood.
