Australia vs England
England won the T20I series by an eight-run margin in Canberra, thanks to a scorching 82 from Dawid Malan and another outstanding performance from Sam Curran with the ball.
Following a series-opening win by the same margin in Perth, England defeated a full-strength Australia to gain momentum ahead of the upcoming T20 World Cup.
Malan’s blazing 49-ball performance helped England claw their way out of an earlier hole when they were put in to bat on a seaming pitch in chilly circumstances.
Australia attacked but were thwarted by a cool Curran while chasing 179 to keep the series alive, with the defending T20 World Cup champions facing ongoing doubts about a misfiring batting order.
The series finale will take place at the same location on Friday.
Australia’s batting problems remain unaddressed.
Aaron Finch went to the top after lately straying away from his normal starting spot, but it didn’t work, with the captain holing out to mid-off for 13.
Maxwell, who had been rested for game one, had a wonderful chance to get out of his rut when he came in at 22 for Two after the dismissal of in-form David Warner.
Maxwell, on the other hand, struggled to get started once more and was caught for 8 runs, leaving him with only 16 runs in his past six T20I innings. With Steve Smith waiting in the wings after failing to break into the starting lineup this series, the competition for positions is tight.
Massive Mitchell Marsh and Tim David looked in good form, but couldn’t remain at the bat long enough to help Australia win.

Curran does it once more.
England’s attack looked vulnerable without pacer Mark Wood, who sparked match one with fast bowling in a 3 haul, aggravated by Chris Jordan suffering in his comeback from injury.
The burden was on Curran, who delivered in bunches with mid-innings wickets of Maxwell and Stoinis. Curran, like his clutch death bowling in Perth, kept his cool as he came in the 18th over to dismiss David, who was on the edge of turning the game on its back.
It finished off another impressive performance by the 24-year-old, who is gearing up for a great T20 World Cup
