Teams & Players’ Performance Analysis:
England has lost two consecutive games dating back to the third T20I. In fact, one may argue that Australia has had the best of England over the four white-ball games to date, so Eoin Morgan’s men will be looking for a second match answer. Their first loss was not without good results, however, with Sam Billings‘ superb hundred more showings off his talent to go with powerful displays from Jonny Bairstow, Jofra Archer, Mark Wood, and Adil Rashid.
England Possible XI: 1. Jason Roy, 2. Jonny Bairstow, 3. Joe Root, 4. Eoin Morgan (c), 5. Jos Buttler (wk), 6. Sam Billings, 7. Moeen Ali, 8. Chris Woakes, 9. Jofra Archer, 10. Adil Rashid, 11. Mark Wood.
The fate of Australia in the opening ODI relied heavily on how well their middle order was coping. With half their side out for 123, including their abundant opportunities cheaply, many of Australia’s supporters at home may have felt it was the ideal time to get some sleep.
However, led by Mitchell Marsh and Glenn Maxwell, two of Australia’s maligned cricketers, the tourists came back roaring. The score of 294/9, on the surface where the bowling in the pitch earned rewards, was a competitive one, even more so with the superb Josh Hazlewood in such a magnificent form, with the apt help of the wily Adam Zampa.
Australia Possible XI: 1. David Warner, 2. Aaron Finch (c), 3. Marcus Stoinis, 4. Marnus Labuschagne, 5. Mitchell Marsh, 6. Alex Carey (wk), 7. Glenn Maxwell, 8. Pat Cummins, 9. Mitchell Starc, 10. Adam Zampa, 11. Josh Hazlewood.
The pitch in the first ODI gave assistance to the spinners, as well as to those bowlers who would bowl to the surface. A score of 275 + beating first may very well be a winning result. Similar conditions can be predicted for the second ODI, and the weather outlook is also very good.
Probable Winning Team:
Another very fun game is waiting for you. England is going to try again to make inroads into Australia’s top ten, and take advantage of that moment. The home side definitely had it in them to bounce back, but it could come down to whether the team fighting first could score a score in the region of 270 on the sluggish Manchester board.
