The injury could prove to be a major blow for England with team doctors yet to make a call on whether Morgan will be available for the New Zealand leg of the series.

Buttler top-scored for England with 46 but was unable to break the shackles imposed by Australia's disciplined bowling attack.

Aaron Finch faced only five balls at the end of the match, firing the last two into the stands to seal victory with 33 deliveries to spare.

D'Arcy Short (36no) and Glenn Maxwell took a few overs to get themselves in before taking 39 off two overs, England spinners Adil Rashid and Liam Dawson feeling the full force of the two Aussie power-hitters.

Having won the toss and elected to bowl, Australia - who beat New Zealand in their opening contest - quickly put the ball to good use and had England reeling on 34-3.

Stanlake had been harshly dealt with by England's batsmen in that match, but this time he was able to get into the game early when Alex Hales skied one in the first over and Finch made decent ground running with the flight of the ball towards the boundary from mid-on to hold a juggling catch.




While Warner has struggled with the bat since scoring 441 at 63 during Australia's 4-0 Ashes triumph, his performance in the field has been typically second to none.

England are sweating on the fitness of skipper Eoin Morgan for the remainder of the Twenty20 tri-series after losing to Australia by seven wickets in Melbourne. We didn't soak up the early pressure and lost wickets.

The win ensured Australia will play in the tri-series final in Auckland February 21 with preliminary matches now switching to New Zealand.

However, three wickets in the next three overs, ending with Warner brilliantly running out Dawid Malan (10) with a direct hit, stopped them in their tracks and they never recovered.

He fell to Chris Jordan in final over of the powerplay Australia were 51-2. Now, with the two arch rivals set to clash against each other in the third T20I at MCG, Australia will bank on him again to take them to another victory and guaranteeing them a spot in the final.
