THE Aussies are back in a big way.

A resounding win over England in Hobart has seen the green and gold firm into +100 in Sportsbet’s outright market for the 2018 Trans-Tasman T20 series.

Glenn Maxwell was the star of the show, snaring three wickets and smacking an unbeaten century as Australia chased down 155 inside 19 overs.

It was no cakewalk, however, as D’Arcy Short (30) was the only other Aussie batsman to reach double figures.

England had a more even spread of contributors with the willow, yet it was only Dawid Malan (50) who managed to convert a solid start into a big score.

Lack of a containing option with ball proved most costly for the visitors as every one of Eoin Morgan’s bowlers went at more than seven runs per over.

At least David Willey was able to jag a few wickets, as predicted in our match preview.

Australia vs. England top batsman odds

David Warner

Warner has fallen into a baffling slump against the white ball. With only 83 runs to his name across five ODIs and two T20s, the stand-in skipper is well overdue for a big score.

Eoin Morgan

Not unlike his opposite number, Morgan has led well without contributing any massive scores of his own. The Irishman may be required to pull out a captain’s knock if the England top order falls cheaply.

Best bets for top wicket-taker

Andrew Tye

It was the spinners who did the damage in Tassie, but Tye’s ability to frustrate the opposition with his myriad variations played a big part. The West Australian could be very tricky if we see another two-paced MCG wicket.

Adil Rashid

Leg spinners found plenty of joy in Melbourne during the Big Bash League. While Rashid is often expensive, his aggressive approach could bring rewards on the vast expanses of the ‘G.

Who will win – Australia or England?

The frightening thing about Australia at the moment is that their top order has so much more to give. England will take confidence from their dominant display at the MCG in the recent ODI series, but they will need to show a hell of a lot more with bat and ball than they did in Sydney. Get on the Aussies to make it 3-0 and thus secure a spot in the final.
