Australia suffocated England with the ball and hammered them with the bat to register three Twenty20 wins from three games and secure a place in the triangular series final as the series moves to New Zealand after the match at the MCG on Saturday night.

The ideal balance of a side made up of players fresh out of the Big Bash League and a better appreciation of the dimensions of a vast outfield gave the hosts an edge they did not let slip.

Australia won the toss and elected to bowl first as they made one change to the side that won by five wickets on Wednesday in Hobart.

England played without regular skipper Eoin Morgan, who strained his right groin during training and was replaced by James Vince. Buttler played a key role in England posting 137 for 7 in the allotted 20 overs where the stand-in captain scored 46 off 49.

"It was another poor performance from us", said Buttler. "We didn't do that".

Glenn Maxwell scored highest 39 runs in 26 balls for Aussie.

From there Australia's innings accelerated, as D'Arcy Short compiled a fine 36 not out, with Chris Lynn piling on 31 and Maxwell's fluent knock featuring two maximums, as he became the fourth Australian to pass 1,000 T20 global runs.

Vince produced a run-a-ball 21 with two hits to the fence. He marked the occasion with three more boundaries - a four, six and another four - off consecutive balls.

He fell to Chris Jordan in final over of the powerplay Australia were 51-2.
