England have thumped Australia by seven wickets in the World Twenty20 final in Barbados.

Michael Clarkes's side had gone into the final without a defeat in the Caribbean tournament but were never in the hunt after losing 3-8 in the first 2.1 overs.

David Hussey made 59 to lead Australia's recovery for a total of 6-147 but England were untroubled, reaching 3-151 in 17 overs.

England's South African-born duo carried the day, with Kevin Pietersen making 47 and Craig Kieswetter 63 in a second-wicket partnership of 117.

It's England's first win in a major limited-overs tournament after making the decider in the Champions Trophy once and the World Cup three times.

Australia improved somewhat after failing to reach the final in two previous World Twenty 20 events.
