AUS vs ENG – 2nd T20i – Team Previews
After winning the series against West Indies, Australi was high on confidence for the first game. However, their confidence got a major shock when the visitors defeated the hosts in a high-scoring thrilling game. Australia would like to win the second game and the series against England to prove that they are one of the biggest contenders for the T20 World Cup Trophy.
David Warner and Mitchell Marsh gave good momentum to the team while chasing the big score given by England to Australia. Cameroon Green was shown the way to the pavilion at a very early stage and that gave huge pressure on the whole team. In the middle order, Marcus Stoinis continued to play some good knocks but there was no one to support him at the other end.
Nathan Ellis was the bowling star of the day as he picked up 3 wickets in 4 overs at an economy of 5. However, the return of Hazlewood, Starc, and Cummins will be a huge boost for the team.
Surprisingly England has started off well in the series and that will give them a huge boost for the upcoming T20 World Cup. A massive total on the board batting first with their openers playing their strokes freely and confidently. The English squad got the benefit of losing the toss as they were given an opportunity to bat first.
Buttler’s return to the squad was positive news for the team and he made a huge impact by scoring 68 runs in 32 balls at a strike rate of 212.50. His partner Alex Hales turned out to be the highest scorer with 84 runs in 51 balls at a strike rate of 164.71. It was a good start for England but once the partnership between Butter and Hales got broke, the middle order was unable to contribute at all.
Reece Topley, Mark Wood, and Chris Woakes will lead the bowling attack for England. Adil Rashid was expensive in the last game but is always the most crucial part of the English attack.
