Australia tour of England 2020: England Vs Australia, Second T20I

Match predictions

Winners Prediction: Australia lost the match despite dominating the most part of the game. Australia`s middle order looks weak and they failed to seal the chase. England bowlers came back strongly and will be high on confidence with their morale boosting win. England too will have to work on their middle order as they lack depth in their batting. We expect England to win the match and seal the series. 

Pitch Conditions: Rose bowl is was little on the slower side and batsmen found it harder to hit the ball once it gets soft. Pace bowlers might take the pace of the ball on this track totrouble the batsmen. We expect average scores to be in the range of 160-170 runs in this match. 

Toss Prediction: Chasing is the best option in T20I matches and we expect both captains to field first if they win the toss.

Players to Bet on

ENGLAND

1. Dawid Malan – Malan took charge of the team with wickets tumbling around him to score 66 runs off 43 balls. He was rightly awarded Man of the match for his brilliant knock. 

2. Jos Buttler – Buttler made a brilliant comeback to T20Is with an attacking 29-ball 44 runs at the top. Buttler will look to dominate the bowlers in this match too.

3. Chris Jordan – Jordan has figures of 3-0-23-0 but his penultimate over gave just 4 runs and he ran out Agar when 19 runs was required to 2 overs. He will be vital bowler in England` s death over assignments.  

AUSTRALIA

1. David Warner – David Warner continued from good form in T20Is with 58 runs in this match. He has 5 fifties and a century in his last 10 T20I matches (add a 48* to that tally).

 2. Glenn Maxwell – Maxwell bowling was a big bonus for the team and he dismissed left-handers Eoin Morgan and Moeen Ali in the middle overs to shift the momentum. Hope he would shine with the bat too in this match. 

3. Ashton Agar – Agar bowled a good spell of 4-0-32-2 and picked up wickets of Jos Buttler and Tom Banton.His ability to bowl in the power play will be an added advantage for the team in this match.
