Australia beat England in T20 with Glenn Maxwell century

Cricket’s unsatisfactory relationship with technology cost England dear in their first game of this Twenty20 tri-series when Glenn Maxwell survived a controversial umpiring decision to blast Australia to victory in Hobart. Maxwell, who had taken three wickets with his part-time off-spin in England’s below-par 155 for nine, seemed to be caught low by Jason Roy off Adil Rashid with Australia ...
