David Warner praises 'fearless' Australia after T20 Tri-Series victory against England

"I don't think we quite know the extent of it yet so we'll wait and find out", said Buttler.

Speaking after his side's seven wicket victory over England at the MCG Warner said: "Our players have been in tremendous form coming off the Big Bash League, they are playing with freedom and they're playing fearless cricket". "We haven't showcased our ability as we can, and there are guys who are determined to come back strong", he is quoted as saying by Cricbuzz.

Having won the toss and elected to bowl, Australia - who beat New Zealand in their opening contest - quickly put the ball to good use and had England reeling on 34-3.

England face New Zealand in their third T20 of the tri-series in Wellington on 14 February.

England's performance represented a significant downturn from Wednesday's, when they started brightly with the bat and conjured some late drama with a spirited display in the field. Buttler, one of world cricket's most feared hitters, managed 46 off 49 balls at No 5 including just three fours.

Buttler, stand-in skipper for the day, shared a stand of 43 with the lively Sam Billings (29) and remained in place until the final ball of the innings but never looked close to his fluent best.

Wellington's Westpac Stadium will host a rare Tuesday night worldwide between the Black Caps and England. "We never really felt like we had enough (runs)".

Lynn was in no mood to play it safe following the early wicket though, as he took the attack to Willey and fellow opener Tom Curran.

From there Australia's innings accelerated, as D'Arcy Short compiled a fine 36 not out, with Chris Lynn piling on 31 and Maxwell's fluent knock featuring two maximums, as he became the fourth Australian to pass 1,000 T20 worldwide runs.

New Zealand re-assemble with similar concerns to England over their middle order after three successive T20 defeats, with two new faces Mark Chapman and Tim Seifert summoned to address it.
