Big show Maxwell powers Australia to win over England
Glenn Maxwell slammed a last-ball six to score a masterful century and lead Australia to a five-wicket victory over England in the second tri-series T20I in Hobart Wednesday. Maxwell, who earlier took three wickets in two overs, was man of the match with an unbeaten 103 as the Australians chased down England's 155 for nine in the 19th over. Maxwell, who was controversially dropped from Australia's one-day team for the recent series against England, responded with a 58-ball century including 10 fours and four sixes at Bellerive Oval. Maxwell had a big moment on 59 when his lofted drive found the fingertip of long-off fielder Jason Roy. But Maxwell stood his ground and although umpire Gerald Abood's soft signal was out, the television umpire deemed Roy did not complete the catch. Australia had a rocky start to their run chase when David Willey dismissed David Warner and Chris Lynn in the space of three balls. But Maxwell rebuilt the innings with stands with D'Arcy Short (30), Travis Head (six) and Alex Carey (five not out) to secure victory. Willey finished with three wickets for 28 off three overs. England, troubled by Australia's spinners, lost their last six wickets for 33 in registering a below-par total of 155. Dawid Malan cracked 50 off 36 balls with five fours and two sixes but England fell away after reaching 94 for two in the 10th over. Maxwell captured three for 10 and Ashton Agar took two for 15 as Australia sent England's middle order tumbling. Kane Richardson (1-27) began the damage by removing dangerous opener Roy for nine, before Malan hit his lively half-century. He was supported by Alex Hales with 22 from 15 balls, and captain Eoin Morgan, also 22 from 14 balls. Hales was the first of two caught-and-bowled wickets for Agar. When Morgan went, caught by Warner off Maxwell, it sparked a middle-order collapse. Jos Buttler (five) fell cheaply, caught by Maxwell off Marcus Stoinis (1-16), while Sam Billings (10) popped a return catch to Agar. Malan was caught in the deep by Andrew Tye for Maxwell's second wicket and Willey (three) was dismissed next ball to give Alex Carey his first international stumping. Maxwell's hat-trick ball was wide of the leg-stump line. Adil Rashid (one) got the toe end of the bat on a shot off paceman Billy Stanlake and was well caught by Stoinis, while Tom Curran (6) was well held by a back-pedalling Warner after failing to pick Tye's knuckle ball. Chris Jordan hit the final ball for six to finish with 16 from 11 balls, with Mark Wood on five not out. Tye finished with 1-28. BRIEF SCORE Australia 161/5 in 18.3 overs (Maxwell 103*, Short 30) beat England 155/9 (Malan 50, Maxwell 3/10) by five wickets
