AFP, HOBART: Glenn Maxwell slammed a last-ball six to score a masterful century and lead Australia to a five-wicket victory over England in the second tri-series Twenty20 international in Hobart on Wednesday.

Maxwell, who earlier took three wickets in two overs, was man of the match with an unbeaten 103 as the Australians chased down England's 155 for nine in the 19th over.

Maxwell, who was controversially dropped from Australia's one-day team for the recent series against England, responded with a 58-ball century including 10 fours and four sixes at Bellerive Oval.

“It was nice to get one over the rope and finish the job,” Maxwell said.

“For us to start the series the way we have has been outstanding. We haven't had a lot of success in T20 cricket for the last few years.

“Missing out on the one-day squad and not playing any part in the Ashes, it was obviously where I wanted to be this summer.

“I had to do a lot of work behind the scenes and I feel I've done that and got back into the Aussie colours.”

Maxwell had a big moment on 59 when his lofted drive found the fingertips of long-off fielder Jason Roy.

But Maxwell stood his ground and although umpire Gerald Abood's soft signal was out, the television umpire deemed Roy did not complete the catch.

Australia had a rocky start to their run chase when David Willey dismissed David Warner and Chris Lynn in the space of three balls. But Maxwell rebuilt the innings with stands with D'Arcy Short (30), Travis Head (6) and Alex Carey (5 not out) to secure victory.

Willey finished with three wickets for 28 off three overs. England, troubled by Australia's spinners, lost their last six wickets for 33 in registering a below-par total of 155.

Dawid Malan cracked 50 off 36 balls with five fours and two sixes but England fell away after reaching 94 for two in the 10th over.

Maxwell captured three for 10 and Ashton Agar took two for 15 as Australia sent England's middle order tumbling.

Kane Richardson (1-27) began the damage by removing dangerous opener Jason Roy for nine, before Malan hit his lively half-century.

He was supported by Alex Hales with 22 from 15 balls, and captain Eoin Morgan, also 22 from 14 balls.
