Australia vs England, First T20 International, Match Prediction

by MyTeam11 Fantasy Sports App developer

Australia and England will kick start their T20I series with the first T20I at Rose Bowl, Southampton.

Team Preview

The number 1 T20 side and number 2 T20 side will take each other in 3-matches T20 series to prove their T20 rankings. England is the only side who had played lot of cricket since the resumption of cricket and they recently participated in the T20 series with Pakistan which was tied with 1-1 as England lost the final T20 by 5 runs following the 5-wickets victory in the 2nd T20I.  England needs to recheck their errors from the previous defeat. The middle-order was tested and only Moeen Ali survived with a gritty half-century. English top-order is having a top-class form as Banton, Bairstow, Malan, and Morgan scored a half-century in the series. The bowling department might be a worrying sign for them. England has recalled Jofra Archer and Jos Butler who will play their first limited-overs series in this home summer.

Meanwhile, Australia are back in the International Cricket after a gap of 6 months as they last played to New Zealand back in March. For the England tour, Australia called some in-form players from the Big Bash likes of Riley Meredith, Josh Philippe, and Daniel Sams who might get the T20 cap for the first time. The Aussie trio Warner, Finch, and Smith would be a key factor in the series and they are in terrific form in limited-format. Glenn Maxwell, Nathan Lyon, and Marcus Stoinis have also been recalled for the series. Stoinis and Maxwell both had good performance with bat and ball in intra-squad fixtures.

Pitch Report

The Rose Bowl, Southampton is a batting-friendly track and Australia got 248 on this ground last time. It’s a busy track and offers good amount of runs. The weather is pretty cloudy and pacers can trouble with the ball. We expect a high-scoring game on Friday as both sides have enough fireworks.

Eoin Morgan (C), Moeen Ali, Jofra Archer, Jonathan Bairstow, Tom Banton, Sam Billings/Jos Buttler, Tom Curran, Chris Jordan, Dawid Malan, Adil Rashid, Mark Wood
