AUS vs ENG – 2nd ODI – Team Preview
On Thursday Australia showed their dominating side and proved the fact that they are still one of the most ferocious cricket teams when it comes to the ODI format. English batters were unable to build up partnerships in front of the Australian bowling attack and their batting lineup had a depth which helped the team to score a comfortable win.
David Warner and Travis Head set up a 147-run stand in the last game, and the side would like a similar show. Steve Smith showed his class at number three by scoring 80 runs in 78 balls at a strike rate of 102.56. The only concern was the early exit of Marnus Labuschagne. However, the top three batters displayed a commendable style on the ground.
Skipper Pat Cummins and Adam Zampa rose to the occasion and picked up three wickets each. Marcus Stoinis and Mitchell Starc picked up one wicket each but maintained a good economy. In Sydney, the Australian bowling lineup is expected to perform at the same or a better level.
The T20 World Champions were hit by an unexpected reality on Thursday. The Australian bowling attack completely overpowered the English batter. This came an as a shock to everyone. The batting depth of England looked helpless in Adelaide and they lost the fixture in the end.
Dawid Malan saved England from an embarrassing defeat by being on the pitch alone and scoring 134 runs at a strike rate of 104.69. Jason Roy and Phillip Salt didn’t make runs in the last game. The side shall expect a good performance from them. Team management will also expect skipper Jos Buttler to buckle up and provide momentum in the middle order.
England came across face-to-face with their weakness in the bowling department. David Willey and Olly Stone must bowl better lines with the new ball, as the Australian openers will be aggressive during the powerplay. Chris Jordan and Luke Wood are two trump cards for England and they will have to perform at their best on Saturday.
