Dawid Malan scored a majestic 49-ball 82 as England recovered from a top-order collapse to post a decent total of 178 for seven against Australia in the second T20I at the Manuka Oval in Canberra. After being put into bat, the visitors were reduced to a slightly alarming 54 for four, courtesy of some sharp bowling from Marcus Stoinis and Pat Cummins. However, Malan and Moeen Ali (44) added 92 runs for the fifth wicket to help England put strong numbers on the board.
