Australia’s captain David Warner won the toss and chose to send England into bat as the hosts chased a second win from as many matches in the Twenty20 triangular series at Bellerive Oval in Hobart.
Following an opening victory over New Zealand in Sydney on Saturday, the Australians made one change to their XI, recalling Travis Head in the wake of his Big Bash League heroics for Adelaide Strikers in the place of the wrist spinner Adam Zampa.
England were able to include all of Alex Hales, Jason Roy and Chris Jordan after injury concerns, while room was found for Tom Curran after his five-wicket heroics in the final ODI last week.
