Glenn Maxwell starred again as Australia hammered England by seven wickets with 5.3 overs to spare in Melbourne to qualify for the Twenty20 tri-series final.

The Aussies have bounced back superbly from their one-day series reverse to England and have won their three matches against England and co-hosts New Zealand at somewhat of a canter.

Maxwell smashed a brilliant century in Wednesday’s clash in Hobart before, in pursuit of just 138, he led the way with another exhilarating 39 off 26 balls.

Only two wins from two against New Zealand, the highest ranked of the three nations at two in the world, will guarantee England another meeting with Australia in Auckland on February 21.
