    Australia [146/5] beat England [145/6] by 5 wickets in the 3rd T20I; England win series 2-1

    England have already sealed a series win, but both sides will be gunning for victory in the third and final T20I, with the winner poised to claim the top spot in the ICC Rankings.

    Overview

    England v Australia, 3rd T20I
    The Ageas Bowl, Southampton
    Tuesday, 8 September, 18:00 local time, 17:00 GMT

    Jos Buttler lit up the second T20I with an unbeaten 77*, but England will have to manage without him in the final game of the series. Despite having secured an unassailable 2-0 lead in the series, the hosts still have plenty to play for. A win will send them to the top of the MRF Tyres ICC T20I Team Rankings, having begun the series in second place behind Australia.

    Australia, meanwhile, will be seeking their first win of the tour as a way to build momentum heading into the ODI series, as well as to hold on to the No.1 spot they claimed back in May.

    Questions remain in the middle order for both sides, with the majority of England's runs in the last match coming from the top three in the form of Buttler and Dawid Malan – although Moeen Ali helped finish off the game with an unbeaten cameo. Australia's middle-order has also struggled to make the most of their starts.

    England will be forced to make at least one change, with Sam Billings likely to come into the side at No.6 to replace Buttler and Tom Banton moving up the order to fill the vacancy at the top.

    Australia may well stick with an unchanged side, though they do have options should they want to give some experience to youngsters such as Riley Meredith or Josh Phillipe.

    Remember the last time

    After early wicket, Australia recovered enough to post a competitive-looking total of 157/7 thanks to contributions from Aaron Finch (40), Marcus Stoinis (35), Glenn Maxwell (26), Ashton Agar (23) and Pat Cummins (13* from 5).

    Buttler and Malan kept England on track with an 87-run partnership before a couple of late wickets threatened to derail the chase. But Moeen smacked a 6-ball 13* to ensure that the hosts didn't repeat Australia's mistakes from the first match. England ended up winning with more than an over to spare.

    What they said:

    Dawid Malan, England: "Eoin [Morgan] always speaks about the way he wants us to play, and as long as we keep playing the way he wants us to play against a specific opposition I think we're happy with that. But to be [in the position], if we do manage to win tomorrow and to put the Aussies under more pressure, it will be fantastic to finish No.1."

    Ashton Agar, Australia: "There is never leeway in international cricket, however, there has been a lot more positives that have come out of [the series] than negatives. That first game, to bowl the way we did on a pretty good pitch and start so well with the bat and get two runs away from winning is a massive positive."

    Aussies will depend heavily on their top 3 to avoid humiliation of a whitewash.

    Smith has to rethink his role and anchor the inning and must avoid brainf...

    His shocking mode of dismissals have cost his team in previous two matches

    I think England may win again.

    3-0 is on the card.

    It is a shame because Aussies are playing a full-strength team while England are playing without Roy and Stokes.

    MOEEN is proud to be skippering England and hopes his experiences leading Worcestershire, as well as learning from Morgan, will stand him in good stead...

    "It's an absolute honour to captain your country and lead such a side. I enjoy the captaincy at Worcestershire - it keeps you in the game and there is the responsibility. This is obviously a different kettle of fish against the No 1 side in the world. I don't think I will be as good as Eoin but he produces other leaders so hopefully I can use his experience."

    How will Moeen fare as captain, NASSER?

    “He has done it for Worcestershire on big Finals Days. He is a very smart, astute captain – people might not put the two and two together with Moeen as, let’s be honest, by his own admission he has had some brain fades. But as a captain he has been smart and led by example.”

    Poms are doing the right thing to rotate the squad. They say that don't rest your inform player, but I guess that shouldn't be applied in T20, which basically is a different ball game using cricket rules and gears. Josh Butler needed that rest after a monumental summer.

    And, congrats to Moeen.

    Well not that big an achievement when 3 out of those 4 teams are Ireland, West Indies and Pakistan. But still, they giving everyone a go except maybe Ollie Robinson was a very smart thing to do.

    Archer and Wood are bowling with serious pace again , and it’s not just the 94mph readings on the speed gun - but they are bowling with an attacking mindset and looking to take wickets - Hoping fortune favours the brave and courageous.

    This used to be the Pakistani style of fast bowling of all out aggression once upon a time , while English pacers bowled defensive line and length outside off stump waiting patiently for batsmen to make the error.

    Amazing how times change as now it seems to be the opposite - even Pakistan’s most promising fast bowlers in ages struggle to bowl quick yorkers even at tailenders - and have to do ‘hard work’ to earn tailenders wickets by bowling old fashioned line and length outside off stump .

    England are the new Pakistan while Pakistan are the new England (in terms of aggression). Roles have reversed. I agree.

    Rashid is a top spinner, the best in LOIs currently. He can get milked by Ind, Pak or maybe other sub continental team but then most spinners would. His performances overall against everyone are much better than any one currently, one of the key players in Eng success.

    cummins is a fraud. he always wilts under pressure. He will get found out again when tours india. he always choose to miss games where he is likely to get tonked. Exactly like philander and johnson who bailed on several test matches in india.

    cummins is a poor t20 bowler.
    In tests he is not good in subcontinent. Cummins

    cummins is a poor t20 bowler.
    In tests he is not good in subcontinent. Cummins
    It was a dead rubber dude. Your darling Bumrah is a fraud. Choked in CT and Wt20 and is slowly fading away. His record against top teams like Eng, Aus and NZ is atrocious and is only going to get worse.
    Recently he is starting to get tonked around as well. Kane Williamson of all people gave him a good beating.

    Australia inched past a sloppy England with three balls to spare to claim a consolation victory in the final match of the Twenty20 series at the Ageas Bowl.

    Chasing 146, the tourists needed 60 from 60 balls with eight wickets in hand, only to tease a repeat of their capitulation in the series opener.

    They lost three wickets for 14 runs, all to the excellent Adil Rashid, before Mitchell Marsh restored calm with 39 not out to give Australia a five-wicket win.

    England did themselves no favours by dropping three catches and making numerous ground-fielding errors, while earlier a batting line-up missing Jos Buttler and Eoin Morgan was restricted to 145-6 by some relentless Australia bowling.

    Jonny Bairstow made 55 from 44 balls and stand-in captain Moeen Ali and Joe Denly played cameos, but England were never fluent against an attack spearheaded by Mitchell Starc.

    England win the series 2-1, although they passed up the chance to replace Australia at the top of the International Cricket Council rankings and record their first 3-0 whitewash in a home T20 series.

    This match was the last bio-secure, behind-closed-doors fixture to be played in Southampton this summer, with these sides now moving to Emirates Old Trafford for three one-day internationals, the first of which is on Friday.

    Second-string England second best
    Not only was the usually powerful England batting missing the injured Morgan and rested Buttler, but also Jason Roy and Ben Stokes, not to mention the ostracised Alex Hales.

    Without them, the hosts never got going on a surface being used for the third time. This was England's slowest start to an innings since the T20 World Cup in 2016.

    That was mainly because of the control of length of Starc, bowling in excess of 90mph, and his recalled new-ball partner Josh Hazlewood. Fellow pace bowler Kane Richardson and spinners Adam Zampa and Ashton Agar ensured there was no weak link in the Australia attack.

    Slashing and hacking, Bairstow had only nine from 16 balls, but when he did find the groove he scored 44 from his next 25, including three sixes off the spinners.

    However, a top edge off Agar was well held by the bowler, who ran to the edge of the 30-yard circle to take the catch at mid-wicket.

    Moeen, the 93rd man to captain England in any form of cricket, hit a flowing straight six off leg-spinner Zampa before sweeping the same bowler to deep mid-wicket, where Steve Smith took a wonderful boundary catch that required him to throw the ball up and hold it again after his heel had been millimetres from the rope.

    Denly edged and inside-edged three successive fours off Richardson, but that was the closest England came to late acceleration.

    Australia come through another wobble
    Because of the coronavirus pandemic, Australia had not played any cricket before this series since March and it showed in the first two matches. They surrendered the first from a winning position and wilted at the end of the second.

    They were superb for the majority of this match, particularly their bowling and catching, but again threatened to throw it away after a rapid start to their chase.

    Matthew Wade, Aaron Finch and Marcus Stoinis had Australia in control, Finch benefitting from the first and worst of England's drops, when keeper Bairstow failed to get a glove on a skied top edge off Rashid.

    Leg-spinner Rashid, though, was still able to rattle the tourists, first by having Glenn Maxwell reverse-sweep to short third man, then bowling Finch with a magical googly and finally persuading Smith to present a tame return catch.

    Marsh, playing for the first time in the series, was the beneficiary of the other two drops, off edges from Denly and Rashid respectively. Both were put down by Dawid Malan at slip, one made harder because of a deflection off Bairstow.

    Amid rising tension, the equation moved out to 34 from 30 deliveries before Marsh nailed a six and a four from a Mark Wood over to put Australia back in charge.

    With Agar providing able support, Australia ultimately only needed a single off the final over, which Marsh scrambled from Chris Jordan's third delivery.

    'Fielding cost us the game' - what they said
    England captain Moeen Ali on BBC Test Match Special: "We were short with the bat. We bowled pretty well but fielded poor and that cost us the game.

    "You can't afford to drop three catches and the misfields. If we had taken our chances I'm pretty confident we would have won the game.

    "When you are missing three or four main players - world-class players - it makes a big difference. I learned a lot.

    "He (Adil Rashid) is an amazing bowler. He is our magician. He can win you games when you don't score many runs. He was amazing tonight."

    Australia captain Aaron Finch on TMS: "We made a conscious effort to be more aggressive in the powerplay. We knew the spinners would have an impact. It was a plan that paid off.

    "We chased in similar style to Friday with a wobble, but the way Mitchell Marsh and Ashton Agar finished it off was brilliant."

    Former England spinner Phil Tufnell: "England are in great shape for the T20 World Cup. England have every chance of winning it. The white-ball game is very rosy."

    cummins is the only fraud here. he sucks in the subcontinent. Bumrah actually obliterated the skippies down under in oz land. He played well in england.

    in n.z he was poor due to his injuries. I remember india winning 5 0 in t20 with an injured bumrah. injured* rofl. Just wait till he is fully fit.

    unlike this overrated trash cannon fodder cummins who literally drops his cojones at home when he gets tonked in a game. He will get found out very soon even in other formats. He already struggles to barely make an iota of an impact in subcontinent.

    I can't wait to watch this trash get obliterated again in the t20 world cup. Most overrated cricketer I have ever come across.

    Easy mate. Bumrah bowled against mediocre players like Marcus Haris, Marsh, Paine , Head and mediocre version of marnus. Smith and Warner would have put this choker in his place. How can a bowler play while he is injured? If he was injured why he played the whole tour and series before that? Are you his physio or the physio of the Indian team? If not then you should put your head in shame as these excuses are not credible. Bumrah has not a bowled in Asia in test cricket. So you cant say he is tested in every condition.
    If you think that the ranked no 1 test bowler is overrated then I am sorry you are a typical indian who is living under the illusion that Indian Bowler are the best in the World just because after decades of mediocrity they are performed for a couple of years

    You seem triggered. scummins's record in Asia is poor. his record in india is mediocre. he is trash. period. he is a poor t20 bowler. He is also nothing special in odi. Why are you conflating tests with t20 and odi?

    Even in tests bumrah outshined him until he got injured and missed out on several series.

    Indian bowler or not bunrah is the best in the world at his best. His peak is better than cummins can ever dream of. just cause your Pakistani bowlers have been utter trash beyond imagination, it doesn't mean the your indian counterparts haven't delivered. Its unfortunate to see but pakistam used to have good bowling and that was their forte but even in bowling india are lightyears ahead of them. Sad state I know. don't cry. You can thrash Zimbabwe to pad up your stats.

    smith and warner may perform or may not. In odi both struggled to cope with bumrah. Bumrah is the cream of the crop. He played injured in n.z as he was still nursing an ankle injury. he just came back from a major stress fracture hence he was out of form.

    scummins will get obliterated again when he tours india. So would warner as even umesh yadav will dismiss that little midget nugget with ease. As for smith he is an all time Great. scummins is lucky he doesn't have to face his own team mate. otherwise his record would poor in his own country. Rofl. Oh I forgot warner the little flat bounc3 track bully would have made scummins quit.

    Smith would have butchered the so called great wasim too.

    I think you are one who is triggered. Just look at how civil your language. You conveniently ignored my 3 important points.
    1- How do you know Bumrah is injured despite continuing to play. Must be a miracle of modern medicine that an injured player played 3 months of cricket with injury
    2- Bumrah has a poor record against quality batting line ups
    3- Bumrah has not played a test in sub-continent
    You seem a very insecure person to bring Pakistan into it. We were talking about Cummins and Bumrah.
    If you think that Waseem is a so called great. Then I dont think there is any point arguing with a lunatic

    There is an article about how he changed his batting stance which actually lead to his decline in tests and improvement in LOs

    wasim is a great. Even he would have problems with smith. Smith is the best of all time.

    Just like how ponting and the other aussie greats never had to play their own team mate in pressure situations. It makes a difference.
