England won the toss and elected to bat but Josh Hazlewood took four wickets as the hosts restricted England to 130-9 in the second T20 at the MCG.

Jos Buttler topscored for England with a 27-ball 22 and Australia made short work of chasing down the target.

George Bailey smashed an unbeaten 60 off 28 balls as Jade Dernbach was hit for 42 for no runs in his three overs, with Cameron White also unbeaten on 58 as Australia won with 31 deliveries to spare.
