No stopping the Aussies

Melbourne: Australia added the Twenty20 series to their victories in the Ashes and one-day Internationals as an eight-wicket win over England gave them a 2-0 lead.

England lost four wickets in as many overs early in their innings in Melbourne and only Jos Buttler (22) passed 20 in their mediocre 130 for the loss of nine wickets.

Cameron White struck 57 and George Bailey 60 off 28 balls with three sixes as Australia won with 31 balls left.

It was their 11th win out of 12 in all formats against England on the tour. England followers grasping optimistically for a crumb of comfort from a wretched campaign will quickly have realised that few were on offer at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.
