Australia maintained clean sheet in the ongoing Trans-Tasman T20I series including England and New Zealand. He arrived when England had lost three wickets inside the first four overs, and nudged just above a run a ball early in his stay, but struggled to up the tempo against Ashton Agar, Marcus Stoinis and the slower-ball variations of AJ Tye.

For now he will carry on doing things his way, starting with Saturday's second T20 game against here at the MCG that England really need to win if they are to avoid a battle with New Zealand to reach the tri-series final.

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.

A number of teams have opted to go with two wrist-spinners, see India's Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav, in T20Is but Australia appear to lagging behind in that regard.

A match-winning partnership of 65 between Glenn Maxwell (39) and D'Arcy Short (36 not out), plus cameos from Chris Lynn (31) and Aaron Finch (20 not out from five balls), got Australia comfortably home.

The worry is that another big collapse in a knockout match at next year's all-important 50-over World Cup with too gung-ho an approach might undo all the good work England have put in since the horrors of the last World Cup. Glenn Maxwell then added more to England's miseries with 26-ball 39.

"Our kids are graduating high school and going to college at record rates, while dropping out less than ever before", he added. And in Yonkers, it exceeded the statewide rate for the first time: 82.8 percent, up 4.5 percentage points.

Jos Buttler captained England and top-scored with 46.

England were off to a poor start, losing their top three batsmen within the first four overs. However, Chris Jordan, the Barbados-born cricketer, dismissed Lynn to ignite England's hope of a comeback. But in 16 runs both were gone.

Warner took two catches and threw down the stumps to run out Daiwd Malan in an effort the defied any suggestion he was running out of puff. Malan scored 10 runs and Vince scored 21 runs respectively.

'The name of the game is to score runs as quickly as you can and sometimes you're going to come unstuck, like we did here.

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.
