England were comfortably outplayed by Australia, who romped into the Trans-Tasman Tri Series final with a seven-wicket win at the MCG.

The Aussies had no problem chasing down England’s 137 for seven in Melbourne.

Here are some of the big stats to come out of the game...

50-UP FOR HALES

Opening batsman Alex Hales reached his half-century of international T20 appearances for England at the MCG.

Only four men have made more, including his skipper for the day Jos Buttler and the absent Eoin Morgan, who leads the way with 71 caps.

Also in the top five are Luke Wright, with whom Hales will draw level in New Zealand, and Stuart Broad.

ROY’S LEAN RUN

Jason Roy might have hit England’s highest ever individual ODI score just a few weeks ago but in T20 cricket he is struggling.

The Surrey batsman has now gone five consecutive innings in the shortest format without getting beyond nine, and he’s only made 50 twice in 25 T20Is.

EARLY WOE

England experienced a rare top-order collapse in Melbourne. By losing three wickets in the powerplay they repeated a feat not seen by an England side in T20Is since the World T20 in 2016.

MELBOURNE’S MAXI

Niche stat alert.

When he reached two, Glenn Maxwell racked up 500 runs in T20 matches in Melbourne.

Not so niche… when on 18, he reached 1,000 career IT20 runs.

MORE ON MAXWELL

When Chris Jordan had the allrounder caught by Buttler on 39, it was the first time he had been dismissed in this Trans-Tasman Tri Series.

That’s despite Maxwell having faced more deliveries (108) than anybody else.
