Morgan in doubt for remainder of T20 tri-series

Pacemen Kane Richardson and Billy Stanlake claimed five wickets between them as Australia restricted England to 137 for seven after being sent into bat in the third tri-series Twenty20 global at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on Saturday. "We still have a chance to make that final", Buttler said. Hopefully we can meet Australia and put on a better show.

England flew to rain-soaked Wellington with fitness concerns over their captain Eoin Morgan, amid a Twenty20 batting slump starting to mirror New Zealand's.

"Losing three early poles, I felt the best way was to then to take some balls and kick on at the end, but that never really happened", Buttler said.

David Willey had Warner (2) caught behind in the first over to hand the tourists a glimmer of hope - the stand-in Aussie skipper's poor form in this series continuing - but Chris Lynn soon snatched that from them.

Warner left England reeling at 3-34 in the fourth over when he ran out Dawid Malan with a brilliant direct hit. "I'll have to improve and look at where I went wrong".
