Australia blasts England away to book place in Twenty20 tri-series final

The tri-series shifts to Wellington on Tuesday when New Zealand hosts England.

D'Arcy Short also impressed in compiling his 36 not out as Australia easily chased down England's 137-7.

Australia reached the final of the tri-nations series with a third win from as many matches, Glenn Maxwell again top scoring for his side with 39.

Cape Town - David Warner was full of praise for Australia's T20I side that after he led them to the Trans-Tasman tri-series final, saying they played "fearless" cricket. "The bowlers executed their game beautifully and the way the batters finished it off was absolutely clinical".

Warner must have eyed the modest target as a chance to play his way into form but his post-Ashes travails against the white ball continued.

But questions are bound to be raised about stand-in T20 skipper Warner's relentless schedule after he lasted just four balls, nicking a ripping David Willey outswinger on two.

Pacemen Kane Richardson and Billy Stanlake claimed five wickets between them as Australia restricted England to 137 for seven after being sent into bat in the third tri-series Twenty20 global at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on Saturday.

That statement came after Pence's office declined to comment on the story before it was published, according to USA Today . Previously, 28-year-old Rippon accused Pence of funding gay conversion therapy in a USA Today interview.

A nightmare start, meanwhile, to the fourth one-day worldwide in Adelaide last month, when they lost five for eight, then cost them their chance of inflicting a 5-0 drubbing on Australia.

On a hard track to score on, England's stand-in skipper Jos Buttler was the lone ranger with the bat with a 49-ball 46.

"Losing three early poles, I felt the best way was to then to take some balls and kick on at the end, but that never really happened", he said.

Alex Hales, Jason Roy and Dawid Malan were out cheaply as England suffered in the absence of injured captain Eoin Morgan.

Australia, too, did not have a good start.

Billings struck the only six of England's innings when he smashed Ashton Agar over long-on in the 14th over, but he fell to Stanlake, with Warner taking the first of two catches at mid-off.

Their innings was epitomised by Morgan's replacement in James Vince who struggled for any sort of rhythm and ran terribly in his first competitive England match since the final Test in Sydney, being put out of his misery after an ugly 21.
