54

Dawid Malan’s 82 and disciplined bowling from England helped the visitors win the second Twenty20 International against Australia by eight runs here at the Manuka Oval on Wednesday to seal the series and give them a confidence boost heading into the World Cup.

Malan shared a crucial 92-run stand in Canberra with Moeen Ali (44) as England compiled 178-7 against a full-strength Australian attack. Despite Mitchell Marsh hitting 45 off 29 balls and Tim David 40 off 23, the hosts fell short.
