Glenn Maxwell brought up his century with the match-winning runs.

"We haven't had much success in T20 cricket for a while now, our rating reflects that, so it was so imperative for this young group to take us forward and win some games".

Together they counterbalanced an expensive outing for Billy Stanlake, who did not adjust to a Bellerive Oval surface that offered less encouragement for speed than the SCG had done.

Maxwell, who remained unbeaten on 103 off 58, strode out to the middle with Australia tottering at 4 for 2 in pursuit of 156.

29 runs in five overs had squeezed the pressure on England and Malan top-edged Maxwell to Tye shortly after reaching 50.

Fresh from his stint with the Hobart Hurricanes, D'Arcy Short was right at home at Blundstone, belting a quick-fire 30 off 20 balls, with two fours and two enormous sixes. The pair seemed capable of driving Australia all the way to their target, but Rashid intervened with an exceptional, one-handed return catch to intercept a Short drive drilled straight back at the leg spinner.

Earlier, Maxwell delivered a dagger to the men in red and blue when he set up a hat-trick attempt.

Australia arrive in Tasmania buoyed by a thumping of New Zealand in the opening contest of this series, a match that confirmed the Big Bash League as a fine nursery for T20 talent.

England came into the match with some players under injury clouds but Alex Hales (hand) and Jason Roy (back spasms) were cleared to feature at the top of the order while Liam Plunkett (hamstring) has missed out.

The lanky left-armer snaffled a leading edge from the unsafe Alex Hales but had to run behind Malan at the non-strikers end. England skated to 1 for 60 at the end of the Powerplay, with Stanlake suffering most of the punishment.

Malan was later caught by Andrew Tye off Maxwell, who also afforded Alex Carey a first stumping in what was his second T20I as wicket-keeper, with Willey the victim.

The Aussies won the toss and put England in to bat first. England scored a reasonable 155 runs for the loss of nine wickets in their allotted 20 overs.

Malan, in contrast to his persevering efforts in the Tests, was playing a brilliant attacking innings, finding the cover boundary with particular relish, but wickets were starting to fall regularly and the run rate began to slow.

In typical fashion, Maxwell endured a roller-coaster innings marked by a contentious decision, when he was on 59, after Jason Roy claimed a catch at long-off. Coming in to face England, Australia will hope to display the allround performance and take a precious win over England.
