SYDNEY, Jan 9 (Reuters) Australia continued their dominance over England with a record-breaking 77-run victory in their one-off Twenty20 match today.

Despite missing almost half the team that humiliated England 5-0 in the Ashes test series, Australia racked up a world record total to leave the tourists winless in all forms of the game since arriving Down Under more than two months ago.

Australia's batsmen went on the rampage, piling up 221 for five to eclipse the previous international record of 214 for five they set against New Zealand in Auckland in 2005.

England replied with 144 for nine, narrowly avoiding the heaviest defeat in the short history of Twenty20 internationals.
