That's it for our rolling coverage of the second T20 International between Australia and England. Thanks for joining us and don't forget to drop back in for our coverage of the third match of the series in Sydney on Sunday. Good night.
Josh Hazlewood named Man of the Match for his bowling figures of 4-30. Good spell, but Bailey and White possibly a bit stiff.
Bresnan was the best of the English bowlers with 1-11 off three overs, but he can't prevent another series loss to Australia with the home side taking an unbeatable 2-0 lead in this T20 series.
Bailey overtakes White to finish top scorer with 60 off 28 balls. White finishes with 58 off 45 balls as they put together a partnership of 78 from 48 balls in front of a crowd of 64,385 at the MCG.
Tredwell back into the attack but White slaps another four. Just eight runs required now.
Bailey then immediately dropped by Bopara! Perhaps it's not meant to be for Hodge with the Aussies needing just 14 off 37 balls.
Bopara bowling but he's powerless to stop Bailey reaching his quickfire 50 with another boundary.
Australia 2-111 (13 overs) Will the local crowd get their wish and see Brad Hodge back in the middle?
Back-to-back fifties to Cam White before Bailey goes over the top again!
18 runs off that over from Dernbach as Bailey lets loose! Local crowd happy that Australia reaches 100 with two wickets down but a little worried they won't see Hodge bat!
Bailey goes again but this time he bounces it over the rope for four to race to 31 off 18 balls.
George Bailey sends another ball sailing into the stands over long-on!
White still waiting to get to his 50. The crowd roaring every time Hodge gets up to take a few practice swings! Australia 2-82 (11 overs)
Broad nearly does! He gets a top edge from Bailey but it sails over Buttler behind the stumps for four.
Broad is back on to bowl after a costly two-over spell at the start of the innings. Can the English skipper jag one for his team?
Australia is 2 for 76 at the halfway mark of the innings. Bailey is edging closer to a well-earned 50 as the Aussies settle after the loss of Finch and Maxwell.
Ravi Bopara is on to bowl with Australia needing 60 runs to win off 66 balls.
Bailey advances down the pitch to Tredwell and clears the long-on boundary for the first six of the Aussie innings and the night!
In an odd way Victorians might just be wishing for another wicket soon with local hero Brad Hodge waiting to come in next. Australia 2-62 (8 overs)
Bailey joins White at the crease with his side just having to take stock after the loss of their second wicket.
No he won't because he's out! Maxwell tries to pull the Tredwell ball over the boundary rope but he finds Bresnan who takes a good catch. Australia 2-54 (7 overs)
White reverse sweeps a single to bring Maxwell on strike. Will The Big Show follow suit with his favoured reverse sweep after he was dismissed playing it in Hobart?
Australia 1-50 after 6 overs. England will be desperate to follow up with another quick wicket. Tredwell in to bowl now.
Maxwell is the new batsman for Australia. Finch not happy to be given out LBW and with good reason as the review showed the ball going over the stumps. Slight break in play as a few beach balls blow in front of the sight screen.
Finch is gone! Bresnan breaks through for England as he catches Finch in front on 10. Australia 1-48 (5.1 overs)
Make that 38 off 20 for White as he slashes outside off-stump and just beats the diving fielder! Australia 0-48 (5 overs)
After a brief lull White slaps a slower ball from Dernbach right back past him for four. White is out to 30 already.
Much better over for England by Bresnan - just one from it. Australia 0-36 (5 overs)
Bresnan on to bowl as England look to apply the brakes to the rampant Aussie openers.
Another four to Finch after he latches onto a short ball from Broad. Australia 0-35 (3 overs)
Finally Finch gets a look at a ball after White bashes 24 off the first 11 balls. He gets off the mark with a single. Australia 0-25 (2 overs)
Four more to White - this time it's a pull shot off a ball just short of a length.
White slashes through cover for yet another boundary off Dernbach's first ball. This might be over quickly!
White hooks another four and finishes the over with a single to get the Aussies out of the blocks with 13 off the first over. Australia 0-13 (1 over)
White goes up top with a slashing cover drive and finds the boundary for the first time then deftly nudges it down to third man for another one!
Cameron White and Aaron Finch to open the batting for Australia with Broad to open the bowling for England. White is facing.
Jos Buttler was England's best batsman with 22 off 27 balls, while Josh Hazlewood did the damage for the Aussies with 4-30 from four overs.
And Hazlewood has four as he bowls Tredwell with the last ball of the innings. England finish with a disappointing total of 131.
Hazlewood has three after the ball ricochets off Bresnan's pad onto his stumps. 3-30 for Hazlewood.
Bailey doesn't make it to a high ball but he fields brilliantly to get it into Hazlewood who nearly runs Bresnan out. Bresnan makes the most of his opportunity to hit the next ball for a straight four.
Starc finishes with 1-19 off his four overs. England has one over to add to its total of 118.
Good death bowling by Mitchell Starc - just 2 runs off his first five balls.
Coulter-Nile in to bowl his last over. He has 1-19 off his first three overs.
Three overs to go now and England must throw caution to the wind and look for a strong finish. England 7-105 (17 overs)
The England 100 comes up after Broad cops one on the thigh pad and it gets past Wade for four.
Finch doesn't quite get to a skied ball from Broad, but just three runs from that last over. England 7-99 (16 overs)
Broad, the England skipper, strides to the crease with his country needing a huge innings from him. England 7-96 (15.1 overs)
Buttler gone! Coulter-Nile back into the attack and raps the Englishman on the pads right in front.
Excellent spell from Muirhead who finishes with 1-17 off four overs. England 6-96 (15 overs)
Excellent over from Hazlewood with just two off it. England 6-94 (14 overs)
Buttler with 21 off 19 is the critical player here for England. He's a brilliant striker of the ball and will need to dig deep.
England must see out their 20 overs - the cardinal sin of T20 if they don't. England 6-92 (13 overs)
Bresnan the new man at the crease. Replays show Maxwell didn't take the catch all that cleanly after he grassed one earlier in the innings.
WICKET: Maxwell takes a nice catch in the deep as Bopara tries to sweep Muirhead but doesn't get all of it! England 6-87 off 12.2 overs.

Stumping chance by Wade as Bopara lunges his leg back into the crease off Muirhead. Given not out by the third umpire.
England 5-86 (12 overs). In response to your question Armchair Selector - I'm a fan of Starc's too. Think he still has a big future. Fingers crossed his body stays sound.
Buttler smokes another boundary through mid-wicket after Coulter-Nile drops it too short.
Coulter-Nile in to bowl as Buttler and Bopara look to build a partnership.
Bopara is the new batsman at the crease. He hit 65 off 27 balls to give England some hope in Hobart and he'll need to replicate that here if the visitors are to post a reasonable total.
England ar 5 for 56 off 9 overs. It will be interesting to see if they try to maintain a high tempo or whether they'll try to consolidate for a couple of overs.
A brilliant piece of fielding from Maxwell has Root short of his ground! Excellent take by White to remove the bails, but Maxwell sprinted for the ball and released it in mid-air to dismiss Root. England 5-63 (8.3 overs)
Nice over from Muirhead with just five off it. England 4-60 (8 overs).
At 39 years of age local favourite Brad Hodge is having a night to remember and he hasn't even wielded the willow yet!
Jos Buttler is the new batsman at the crease with England reeling at 4-55. Some controversy over Morgan's dismissal with some suggestion he had grounded his bat before it bounced up into the air.
Favourite son Brad Hodge has the crowd on their feet after a fabulous piece of fielding has Morgan diving for the crease. A direct hit has seen Morgan given out by the third umpire!
Maxwell into the attack and he's immediately reverse swept for four by new batsman Morgan.
A really well-judged catch by Starc who had a long time to wait before he gloved it down at third man. England 3-48 (6 overs)
Starc takes a catch in the deep! Hazlewood strikes again and Hales is out for 16. England in troublew now at 3-42 after 5.4 overs.
Root managed 32 off 24 balls in Hobart while Hales made 22 off 12 deliveries.
England 2-38 after 5 overs. Root looks in impressive touch right from the outset.
Hodge takes a beauty at short cover! Luke Wright made excellent contact, but Hodge dives to his left to take the catch low to the ground off Starc's bowling. Wright out for a duck. Joe Root at the crease. England 2-30.
Swing and a miss from Hales to finish the Hazlewood over - a good one at 1-6. England 1-30 (4 overs)

Hodge dives but can't stop Hales finding the boundary off the last ball of Starc's over. England 0-24 (3 overs)
Maxwell drops a chance at backward point! Looked pretty regulation, but he couldn't take the opportunity to dismiss Hales.
Lovely evening in Melbourne with a crowd of about 50,000 in at the MCG.
Lumb finds the rope again with an imrovised pull shot off a good length. England 0-18 (2 overs)
Nathan Coulter-Nile is on to bowl the second over with England 0-10.
A tidy start for Hodge with just the single off his first three balls but then Lumb cuts beautifully for four.
England will have the opportunity to post a target in Melbourne with Alex Hales and Michael Lumb now at the crease with Brad Hodge to open the bowling in somewhat of a surprise move.
Australia leads the three-match series 1-0 after defending an impressive total of 213 in Hobart, but England will fancy their chances at the MCG after some brilliant late-innings batting saw them reach 200 at the end of 20 overs at Blundstone Arena.
