I guess the question from the Australian point of view is whether these losses are simply due to rust or whether we should be worried.

Yeah it's not like we've (England) not been fantastic in the short stuff for the past 4 years is it?

Apparently reviewing a bat before wicket was not significant enough to make the highlights. I wonder if the selection was a tad biased.

Also can't help but notice that Archer is bowling 90 mph again now he's facing an opponent he cares about.

Remember the last limited overs series we had over there was a 5-0 win for England. Both the matches have been sort of close. Maybe I under-rate our limited overs side but I don't think this is that far out of expectation.

There's no doubting that England is a good t20 side, but Australia was ranked #1 in the format. By contrast we were ranked 5th or 6th going into the ODI world cup. ODIs are Australia's worst format right now but losing a t20 series at this stage should be cause for concern leading into the world cup.

Uh maybe it’s to do with the fact that he only has to bowl two two over spells

Yes absolutely when you only have four overs to bowl in a day you know you can steam in. However, both Archer and pundits suggest it's not easy to rock up in Test cricket and bowl 90mph spells, sometimes you can't just get your pace up there, but whenever it's a T20 he can crank it up.

He was bowling mostly 90 mph stuff in the last test against Pakistan tbf to him.

Baffled that Australia haven't selected Phillipe in these T20s. Okay you don't want to mess up the Warner/Finch partnership, but it should be sufficient enough to slot him in at 3. He's a young gun - why are they holding him back? Warner, Finch, Phillipe, Smith, Maxwell, Carey would be my top 6 - with Stoinis as first reserve opener

Or, Australia could go full England and pick both Carey and Phillipe to get in as many wicketkeeper-batsmen as possible
