SYDNEY (AFP) - Australia defeated England by 84 runs to sweep their Twenty20 cricket series 3-0 in Sydney on Sunday.

The Australians' score of 195 for six was always beyond the tourists, who were bowled out for 111 in the 18th over.

It capped a disastrous tour of Australia by England, who lost the Ashes Tests 0-5 and the one-day international series 1-4.
