England vs Australia, 3rd ODI, Jun 19: Match Preview & Prediction

England is the best ODI team in the world at the moment. The players gel well and can perform cohesively as a unit. This is the key to their success under the captaincy of Eoin Morgan. The Australian team will want to put the South African ball tampering episode behind them and re-establish their supremacy in this format of the game. So, a lot will be resting on the captaincy of Tim Paine.
