England vs Australia, 2nd ODI, Jun 16: Match Preview & Prediction

Although we are aware that Steve Smith and David Warner are out of the game, people think that 16 June will be a victorious day for England. But don’t forget that Glenn Maxwell is back in the team and Aussie fans have high hopes that he will be able to curtail the English batsmen. Of course, England will be looking to emulate its ODI success down under after losing the Ashes.

Match Preview

Eoin Morgan, the captain of the English team, will try hard to drive success. Jos Buttler is the wicket keeper. The team also has other best players, namely David Willey, Tom Curran, Alex Hales, Chris Woakes, Jason Roy and others.

The Australian team is captained by Tim Paine. The other team members of Australian squad include the likes of Glenn Maxwell, Pat Cummins, Travis Head, Mitchell Marsh, Adam Zampa, Aaron Finch, and Kane Williamson.

Andrew Tye has taken massive strides in recent times and has become one of the most reliable bowling options for Australia. Tom Curran has the ability to move the ball at will. So, it will be interesting to see the battle between the bat and ball in Cardiff. .

England team has got the right players and has a good balance of batting and bowling. They have managed to get the right coach (Trevor Bayliss) for the side who allows players the freedom to play their own game.

Match Prediction

The Australian team has the best bowling team. The trio of Glenn Maxwell, NM Lyon, AC Agar and JA Richardson makes it the best bowling team. One must have seen their performance in previous matches. Below are few reasons that explain why Australia could win the match against England:

  • Extremely talented bowling team

  • D’Arcy Short, an opening batsman of the Australian team, will surely give his best

  • Marcus Stoinis and TM Head are capable of scoring maximum runs and make the middle order strong

  • Glenn Maxwell is an all-rounder and will take wickets and score runs

  • Don’t forget Aaron Finch, who is considered among the best ODI batsmen. He will perform with the bat and is capable of changing the face of the game in a single overYoung Jhye Richardson and Kane Richardson are key bowlers after Maxwell and will try to restrict the English and also take quick wickets.
