    Default Australia end England's record winning streak

    MELBOURNE: Australia ended England's record eight-match winning streak on Friday with a four-run victory in the second Twenty20 international which was again decided on the final ball.

    After Australia battled to 147-7 thanks to an unbeaten half-century by second-gamer Aaron Finch, England looked set to cruise to victory when they were 58-0 after six overs, with opener Ian Bell on song.

    However, England's quest to extend their record unbeaten T20 streak to nine matches, having defeated Australia on the last ball of Wednesday's game in Adelaide, came unstuck as their middle order failed to deliver.

    As was the case in Australia's lone win during the Ashes series, in the third Test at the WACA Ground, it was paceman Mitchell Johnson (3-29) who turned the match on its head.

    Johnson claimed the vital wicket of Bell (39) when the right-hander dragged a ball onto his stumps in the seventh over to end an opening stand of 60.

    The left-hander then followed up by having the dangerous Kevin Pietersen caught for one three balls later.

    Johnson also removed the dangerous Eoin Morgan for 14, while Shane Watson backed up his brilliant effort in Wednesday's match with a frugal 2-17 from four overs.

    With 13 runs needed off the last three balls from Brett Lee, young England all-rounder Chris Woakes threatened to repeat his heroics on Wednesday when he lofted the paceman into the stands to make it seven needed from two balls.

    But Lee got the job done as Australia snapped a run of five successive losses in T20 internationals.

    Man of the match Finch, in just his second international, hit 53 not out from 33 balls in a crucial performance with the bat for the home side.

    Australia side got off to a quick start and were 57-1 after six overs, but lost 4-17 as Graeme Swann and Michael Yardy wreaked havoc, the two English spinners recording identical figures of 2-19 from their four overs
