Australia tour of England 2020: England Vs Australia, Second ODI

Match predictions

Winners Prediction: Australia won the first ODI match in a grueling contest. England`s lower order put on valiant fight with Billings leading from the front. Australia`s all-rounder duo of Mitchell marsh and Glenn Maxwell score 70+ runs to help their post a massive score. Australian bowlers outsmarted their English Counterparts in the first match. But they will miss the services of Mitchell Starc in this match which is a huge setback. We expect England to level the series 1-1 in this match. 

Pitch Conditions: Old Trafford is one of quality tracks where it has something for both bowlers and batsmen in it. Batsmen will find run scoring easier once they are settled like the last match but must respect the conditions early on. 

Toss Prediction: Both teams will look to chase down the total in this match as they can time their innings to perfection depending on the target on line. 

Predicted Playing XI

ENGLAND: Eoin Morgan (C), Johnny Bairstow (Wk), Jason Roy, Joe Root, Sam Billings, Mark Wood, Jos Buttler, Moeen Ali,  Adil Rashid, Jofra Archer, Chris Woakes

AUSTRALIA: Aaron Finch (c), David Warner, Marcus Stoinis, Glenn Maxwell, Marnus Labuschagne, Alex Carey (wk), Mitchell Marsh, Pat Cummins, Kane Richardson, Josh Hazlewood, Adam Zampa

Players to Bet on


  1. Jos Buttler – Buttler was dismissed cheaply in the first match but will look to make a big score in this match to help his team in the middle order. 
  2. Adil Rashid – Adil Rashid picked up 2 crucial wickets and has been amongst the wickets column consistently. He will look to add more wickets to his tally in this match.    
  3. Johnny Bairstow – Bairstow has back-to-back fighting 50+ knocks in the last two matches and he is looking well set to make a big hundred in this match. 


  1. Glenn Maxwell – Maxwell`s knock of 77 runs off 59 balls helped his team post a big score of 295 runs on board. He was phenomenal with the bat taking on the likes of Jofra Archer and Mark Wood.

  3. Josh Hazlewood – Josh Hazlewood had dream figures of 10-3-26-3 when other bowlers were going for a lot of runs. He was rewarded duly for his consistency in line and lengths.
