England lost the final Twenty20 International (T20I) and also their final match in what has been a historically disastrous tour of Australia. Chasing a rather huge total of 196, the England team folded up 85 runs short of the target — 111 all out in 17.2 overs.

After losing the first two matches in the T20 series, they had already lost their only chance of a series win in what has been a terrible Australian summer for the touring English. They came to the third and final encounter with nothing to lose, but some more pride.

And they lost that too. Chasing 196, none of the England batsmen lasted long and couldn’t provide any sort of resistance. Except for Eoin Morgan, who top-scored with 34 off 20 balls, no other batsmen made even 20 runs.

The Australian bowlers, on the other hand, had another field day in office, as four of them bagged a pair each — Mitchell Starc, Nathan Coulter-Nile, James Muirhead and Glenn Maxwell.

Earlier in the day, George Bailey’s power hitting lifted Australia to 195 for six in 20 overs.

Having wrapped up the series thanks to Captain Bailey’s pyrotechnics in the 2nd T20I, the Australians made two changes in the line-up, with T20 specialist Dan Christian and rookie Ben Cutting featuring in the line-up and England handing pacer Chris Jordan his debut with their star performer in this miserable tour, Ben Stokes also featuring in the team.

Brief scores:

Australia 195 for 6 in 20 overs (Cameron White 41, George Bailey 49*, Ben Cutting 29; Stuart Broad 3 for 36) beat England 111 in 17.2 overs (Eoin Morgan 34; Nathan Coulter-Nile 2 for 21, James Muirhead 2 for 13) by 85 runs.

Man of the Match: George Bailey
