Jos Buttler wants another crack at Australia in Trans-Tasman tri-series

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

Another cheap dismissal for Warner was the only real negative for Australia as they booked their spot in the tri-series final with a seven-wicket victory over England at the MCG.

The ideal balance of a side made up of players fresh out of the Big Bash League and a better appreciation of the dimensions of a vast outfield gave the hosts an edge they did not let slip.

Morgan was a late omission for Saturday night's match at the MCG after straining his right groin at training on Friday. Although he top-scored in England's laboured innings, Buttler couldn't find his usual timing during his 46 off 49 balls, and then watched as Australia hurtled to the target with more than five overs to spare, and finished their home season in style.

Speaking after his side's 7 wicket loss to Australia Buttler said: "It was another poor performance from us". "We didn't do that".

Lynn was in no mood to play it safe following the early wicket though, as he took the attack to Willey and fellow opener Tom Curran. "I just never got going and we were never able to get up to a score we thought was defendable".

Why there is no Conte-nuity for Chelsea this season
The English Premier League could emulate other European competitions by introducing a winter break. "I'm a coach. City have also recently overtaken Chelsea in a combined Premier League table made up of the last two seasons.

Sam Billings and stand-in captain Buttler rebuilt after Jason Roy (8), Alex Hales (3) and Dawid Malan (10) were dismissed to get the tourists to a semi-competitive total by rotating the strike and running hard, rather than aggressive stroke play. 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.

Billings struck the only six of England's innings when he smashed Ashton Agar over long on in the 14th over.

D'Arcy Short walks on to the field to bat.

The visitors lost 5 for 18 through their middle order and that could be extended to 6 for 33 if we include the fall of captain Eoin Morgan.

Maxwell was th highest scorer for AUstralia with 39 runs off 26 deliveries which included three boundaries and two sixes. He was sent packing by Chris Jordan in the final over of the powerplay. Now, once again this two giant teams have participated in the tri nation series where the new member is New Zealand. Lynn was once again beaten by the ball moving back into him first up, but this time saw the ball squirt away towards the off side rather than thudding into the stumps.
