Australia wraps up the summer of cricket with a thumping win over England
MACQUARIE’S SUMMER OF CRICKET LINE-UP: Damien Fleming, John Emburey, and Bruce Eva.
Australia has wrapped up the summer with a thumping seven-wicket win over England at the MCG.
Glen Maxwell (39), D’Arcy Short (36*), and Chris Lynn (31) all chipped in with the bat.
Batting at No.5, Aaron Finch then blasted 20 off just five balls to seal the victory.
Maxwell is out – for the first time this series!
His 39 tonight brings his series average up to 182. #AusvEng

The mighty MCG is the setting for Australia’s final home match for the summer.
Australia will be hoping Glenn Maxwell can continue his hot form; the big-hitting has scored 143 runs over the first two T20 internationals, without being dismissed, as well as claiming 3-10 last match.
But England will be out to avenge their defeat in Hobart, in which they failed to capitalise on a strong start from the top order.
Can the Aussies make it three on the trot? Or will England score their first Trans-Tasman Trophy win?
