James Tredwell was England's only change for the second Twenty20 international against Australia in Melbourne.

Skipper Stuart Broad was playing his 50th Twenty20 - becoming the first England player to reach the landmark - and he won the toss and elected to bat.

England must win to keep the series alive and avoid a whitewash in all three formats this winter.

Veteran batsman Brad Hodge returned to Australia colours for the first time in six years as one of two changes.

Left-armer Mitchell Starc was the other new name, as he played for the first time since suffering a back problem during last summer's Ashes series.

Dan Christian and Moises Henriques, who has been called up to the tour of South Africa, dropped out.
