There will be exciting ODI action in the early hours of Saturday morning, as T20 world champions England continue their hectic schedule with a second test match-up against Australia. But, can the tourists level the series at Sydney Cricket Ground ahead of the third test next week?
Before Betting On Australia vs England
The action moves to Sydney in the series between Australia and England in the ODI format. It was a much-changed England team for the start of this series, as a number of key players have been rested following a thrilling T20 World Cup success over Pakistan last weekend. England managed to win a second T20 title by five wickets, with just six balls remaining.
One of the players that would have been disappointed to miss out on selection in the final reacted in strong fashion in England’s defeat in the first game of this series. Dawid Malan was sensational with the bat earlier this week, as he scored an impressive 134 runs from 128 balls. However, few other England batters could make much an impression, with David Willey hitting 34, Jos Buttler finishing with 29 and Sam Billings scoring 17.
Australia managed to claim victory in the opening match between the sides, as they scored an impressive 291 from just 46.5 overs, eventually winning by six wickets with 19 balls left. It was a perfect response from the Aussies, who were disappointingly unable to make home advantage count at the T20 World Cup.
The top order batted extremely well for Australia, with David Warner hitting an impressive 86 from 84 balls. Meanwhile, Steve Smith hit 80 from 78, and Travis Head scored 69 from 57. England struggled in attack in that defeat, but they will be bolstered in terms of options with the returns of Moeen Ali, Adil Rashid, and Sam Curran for this second match in the series.
