Australia won by 8 wkts | Australia Vs England Live Score, 2nd T20I

That's it from us up here. Join us back at 19:35 Local Time on Sunday for the final T20I game in Sydney. Bye! Bye!
Josh Hazlewood is the Man of the Match for his 4/30.
With this win, Australia have ensured that England will go home empty-handed. 130 was never going to be enough on this wicket, especially against this Australian side. The bowlers did the job for the hosts initially with Hazlewood bagging 4 wickets. In reply, White started off in grand style hitting boundaries at will. Finch fell in the 6th over just before the opening stand crossed fifty. Maxwell didn't last long either as he hit one in the deep to Bresnan. But since then, captain Bailey joined White and the duo completed their respective fifties to help Australia take a 2-0 lead in the 3-match T20I series.
14.5 James Tredwell to George Bailey 4
