A final-ball thriller - what a start to the series between one of the best cricketing rivalries in the cricket. England were dead and buried when Finch and Warner were cruising in the first ten overs. They not only came back from the dead but also demolished the Aussies to win a game that they had absolutely no chance of winning halfway through the second innings.
The way things panned out in the first match renders the upcoming matches even more exciting. The series is now set up beautifully. England would now that Australia is not a team to be taken lightly. Australia, on the other hand, will now be well and truly aware of their strengths and weaknesses. As was the first match, the second match of the series is expected to be a cliffhanger as well. The two teams are now set to meet on 6th September 2020 at The Ageas Bowl Cricket Stadium, Southampton.
Once England's innings was done and Australia's opening pair was cruising, there wasn't a way England should have ended up as winners - yet they did. Their performance in the first T20 was one of those great escapes that will be talked about for years to come.
Walking into the play the first ODI of the series, England had the experience of playing against Pakistan and that proved to be invaluable. Dawid Malan, with the form he was in, played a balanced knock to guide England to a total that proved to be just enough for the Aussies. Apart from his knock, however, there was hardly any support from any of the other middle-order batsmen.
England got off to a terrific start despite losing Jonny Bairstow early. Coming off fantastic knocks in the longer format of the game, Jos Buttler looked in fantastic form as he provided his side with a flying start. He was assisted by Dawid Malan who took his own sweet time to get settled and then launched an assault on the Aussie bowlers.
On paper, England have a batting lineup that goes deep but that didn't come to their rescue in the previous match. They kept losing wickets at a regular interval and were eventually restricted to 167. Defending the total was never going to be easy and it looked even more difficult when Aaron Finch and David Warner were going strong.
England had a dismal first half with the ball as Jofra Archer and Mark Wood both failed to do anything of substance with the ball. Understandably, that was because they were playing after a long time and a bit jittery. England pacers did a better job in their second spell as they not only kept bowling tight but also picked up wickets. We expect English bowling in the powerplay to improve significantly in the upcoming match.
England will know that they managed to get a win that didn't look theirs most of the time. But the skill and experience of pulling the game back are going to be priceless going forward. With Jofra Archer and Mark Wood back, their bowling looks stronger than it did against Pakistan. Besides that, they had a terrific batting lineup that can demolish any bowling attack on its day. Beating England isn't going to be easy in the second match of the series as well.

Australia had a golden opportunity of resuming their international campaign with a terrific win but they managed to snatch a defeat from the jaws of a victory. It looked all good for them when Aaron Finch and David Warner were batting but things started to fall-apart when English bowlers made inroads into their batting.
Apart from the middle-order woes, there is hardly anything that the visitors would want to improve on. However, finding a finisher will be a huge challenge for the Aussies. Most of their batsmen are the ones who thrive will playing at the top of the order. Marcus Stoinis is ideally an opener, Steve Smith bats and number three, and Glenn Maxwell would not want to bat at any position lower than five. Although Alex Carey and Ashton Agar are pretty capable with the bat, their experience as finishers is limited at best. The Aussies would need one of their top-four batsmen to carry them through and failure to do so might bite them once again.
Given that the first match of the series was Australia's first game in six months, the fans and the management should not be too disappointed by the team's performance. They looked hungry and clinical with the ball. In addition to that, their death bowling looked brilliant with Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins leading the charge. Glenn Maxwell and Marcus Stoinis can roll their arms if one of their bowlers have a bad day and that is a luxury most captains would want to have.
On paper, Australia have capable batsmen right through with all of their batsmen having a terrific batting record playing for their respective franchises. However, most of those batsmen would need to adapt to playing in the lower middle-order. Evidently, since the beginning of the last year, Australia's strike-rate for the finishing roles, positions 5-7, stands least among all ten T20I teams.
With a top-order consisting of David Warner, Aaron Finch, and Steven Smith backed up a versatile bowling attack, this Australian side looks solid on paper. If they can get their middle-order woes sorted, England will certainly have a run for their money on Sunday.

The surface at the Rose Bowl will already be dry, to begin with, and is likely to get slower as the match progresses. With dew not going to be a factor, there will not be a tangible advantage for the team batting second. Considering that as well as the fact that this is a high-pressure game with the series on the line, we expect the captain winning the toss to bat first.

The second match of the series is to be played on the same strip, which is likely to be a tad drier, making spinners more a more important commodity. The slowness in the surface was apparent in the first match as well when England's tactics of bowling into the pitch and taking the pace off the ball worked better than bowling full. The players, however, will be better acquainted with the surface and are likely to set their preparations accordingly. Thankfully, the weather hasn't been a threat so far in the series so far and it is likely to stay that way. It's likely to be a cool and sunny afternoon with the temperature hovering around 18 degrees. As it is a day game, dew will not be a factor and the surface might lose the pace as the day progresses. The team batting first should be fairly happy if it manages to put a total of anything over 170 runs on the board.

It couldn't have been a better spectacle for the fans who were waiting to see the England-Australia rivalry come to life for so long. England could consider themselves a bit fortunate as they pulled off a majestic heist in the opening match. They'll be vying for yet another win to seal the series, but Australia isn't a team to get bogged down so easily. The Aussies are expected to bounce back harder and stronger to keep the three-match series alive. England, on the other hand, will be brimming with confidence after staging a miraculous comeback. For that reason and the fact that they are a better team on-paper, backing England to win the second match of the series should be the way to go.
England have a superb opening combination and both batsmen have looked in superb touch in the last few matches. In addition to that, the surface is likely to be slower than the one in the previous match and both sides will be looking to maximize the use for field restrictions in the powerplay. With intent and skill there, there's no reason why England won't be able to score 45 or more before the powerplay ends. This is a pretty risk-free bet.
A pretty similar bet as the previous one, but for Australia. Like England, Australia, too, have a stupendous opening pair, and Aaron Finch and David Warner both looked in fabulous form in the previous match. In fact, they made batting look easy and scored at a rapid rate. They both are naturally aggressive players and we expect them to come out all guns blazing. Again, an excellent bet for those not looking to keep it safe.
Although the surface is expected to play a bit slower, it is unlikely to have much impact on the total scores. Both sides have terrific batting units that are known for their aggressive approach. Besides, the surface will still be conducive for batting in the first few overs. The total of 150 doesn't look high enough to challenge any of the two sides. Certainly a bet with an excellent risk-reward ratio.
In the last few matches, Dawid Malan has been the most consistent player for England. He scored a match-winning fifty against Pakistan and then against Australia in the previous match. He seems to be well acquainted with the conditions and scoring 22 or more shouldn't be a big deal for him.
Players - Total Points - David Warner Total 4's Over 2.5 and Aaron Finch Total 6's Over 0.5, 2.6
Yes at 2.6
This is an accumulator bet that can pay rich dividends if Australian openers manage to stick around even for a few overs. They both did well in the first match and are expected to continue to do well. The accumulation factor adds to the returns of the bet that otherwise should both be low-risk ones. Bet on Warner to hit a minimum of three fours and Finch to hit at least a six.
