England have now suffered their 11th defeat in 12 games on tour Down Under, and it was a miserable start for the tourists in Melbourne today after they won the toss and chose to bat.

Wickets continued to tumble for England as they posted just 130-9, with Joss Buttler top-scoring by taking 22 from 27 balls.
Australia stormed out of the blocks with Cameron White and Aaron Finch during their reply, while England struggled to find the breakthrough on the field.
Finch was the first to go after taking 10 runs from 11 balls, and Glenn Maxwell later followed for two.
White (57 not out) and George Bailey (60 not out) eased towards Australia's target to wrap up the match and the series.
