Chester-le-Street - Australia captain George Bailey won the toss and elected to field against England in the second and final Twenty20 international at Chester-le-Street on Saturday.

England were unchanged from the side that lost the first T20 at Southampton by 39 runs on Thursday, with in-form Hampshire batsman Michael Carberry again left out of the side.

Australia made one change, with Nathan Coulter-Nile replacing fellow seamer Josh Hazlewood, as opener Aaron Finch looked to follow up his Twenty20 international world record innings of 156 at Southampton.
