Finch returns as Australia opt to bowl


The unbeaten Australians are now assured of a spot in the February 21 final in Auckland after downing England by five wickets in Hobart and beating New Zealand in the series opener.

With England in dire need of a strong opening partnership that would help them record their first win in the tri-series, the onus was on the top-order to start the innings with a flourish.

In the final global fixture of the Australian season, the hosts finished with a bang on Saturday (February 10).

House Democratic leader flexes muscle in opposing U.S. budget deal
House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer urged Democrats to vote no on the budget deal slated for a vote on the House floor late Thursday. As of this writing she is still refusing to support funding of the federal government until the immigration issue is resolved.

With Saturday's defeat, England have now lost five of their last six T20I encounters against the Australians.

Toss: David Warner, the Australian captain, won the toss and opted to bowl against England in the third Twenty20 global of the tri-series, with New Zealand as the other team, at the Melbourne Cricket Ground in Melbourne on Saturday (February 10).

It was a memorable finish to the summer for Australia, who have recovered well in the tri-series after their ODI malaise. In the match, Australia won the toss and opted to field first.

Buttler had been the only England batsman to make a substantial score, but even he was at less than his best, a rare occasion when he scored below a run a ball. His stay was eventful but brief, ending with a top edge from the bowling of Chris Jordan that settled comfortably into the gloves of Buttler. Australia took only 14.3 overs to reach the destination. Malan and Vince tried a bit but failed. Playing his first worldwide match since the Ashes, Vince characteristically lived dangerously and could have been run out on several occasions as England appeared paralysed by their change of fortune since a decisive One-Day global (ODI) triumph. Willey scored 10 runs for the team England.

James Vince was skittled by a slower ball from Andrew Tye before Buttler (46) and Sam Billings (29) steadied the ship. The excellent Richardson was to claim his third wicket when Buttler tried to clear the fence from the final ball of the innings, but could not quite reach the sight screen, where Agar, who had also been economical with the ball, made a running chance look far less hard than it was.
