Match Details:

The 3rd game of the 3-match ODI series between England and Australia will be played at The Old Trafford in Manchester.

The match starts at 01:00 PM local time (05:30 PM IST) (12:00 PM UTC). This match can be viewed on Sony Six and Sony Six HD. It will be live-streamed on the Sony Liv app.

Preview:

England and Australia will lock horns in the deciding 3rd ODI on Wednesday at the Old Trafford. While Australia won the first match by 19 runs, it was England’s turn on Sunday where they defeated the visitors by 24 runs. Less than 90 runs were needed for Australia in the 2nd ODI when they lost their 3rd wicket and soon collapsed in no time. England has won every ODI series they played at home since the start of 2016 and will expect to keep that spree going along. But if you want to know what the ultimate ComeOn Bet is. then read on.

Pitch Condition/Report:

The track at the Old Trafford generally slows down as the match progresses which is why the teams winning the toss prefer batting first here. Going by the two matches in this series, even the 240+ target will be tough to chase.

Average first innings score: 271 (Last five ODIs played at the Old Trafford)

Record of chasing teams: Won – 0, Lost – 5

Probable Playing XIs:

England:

Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow (wk), Joe Root, Eoin Morgan (c), Sam Billings, Jos Buttler,  Sam Curran, Chris Woakes, Tom Curran, Jofra Archer, Adil Rashid.

Bench: Moeen Ali, Tom Banton, Mark Wood.

Australia:

David Warner, Aaron Finch (c), Steve Smith, Marnus Labuschagne, Alex Carey (wk), Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis/Mitchell Marsh, Ashton Agar/Josh Hazlewood, Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Adam Zampa.

Bench: Matthew Wade, Ashton Agar/Josh Hazlewood, Daniel Sams, Josh Philippe, Matthew Wade, Sean Abbott, Nathan Lyon, Riley Meredith, Kane Richardson, Marcus Stoinis/Mitchell Marsh.

Expected Top Players:

Jason Roy

Jason Roy hasn’t been at this best since the resumption of the sport. However, in the 2nd ODI, Roy made a quick-fire start before getting runout. We can expect a big inning from him during the ODI series decider.

Marnus Labuschagne

Marnus Labuschagne made a great start to his ODI career scoring 305 runs from only eight innings with help of a century, two fifties and three scores of 40s.

Mitchell Starc

Mitchell Starc has gone wicketless in four of the eight ODI matches played this year. However, he can be bankable due to his brilliant record of taking 40 wickets from 20 ODIs in England.

Our Betting Tips:

Given the way the pitch has played in the first two matches, it will be tough to see the chasing team winning the series decider on Wednesday.

Probable Winners:

Australia is expected to win this match and take the series.

We have discussed who are our expected top players, but we understand it can still be difficult to just bet on one. We know how hard it is for anyone to strategize and make the best bets. Do not worry. We have populated some wise cricket betting tips and predictions you can use.

Match Details:

The 2nd game of the 3-match ODI series between England and Australia will be played at The Old Trafford in Manchester.

Preview:

England is present in a do-or-die situation following a close defeat in the first game of the 3-match ODI series against Australia at home. The track in Manchester during the first game was quite a tricky one but the middle-order of both the teams stepped up to take their teams to a decent total. The Eoin Morgan-led team would be looking to square the series on Sunday despite the Aussies likely to be boosted by the return on Steve Smith.

Pitch Condition/Report:

The track at the Old Trafford is one of the fewer venues in England where two spinners are needed. The recent most ODI matches played at this venue have been won by teams batting first only and 275+ totals in most matches.

Average first innings score: 281 (Last four ODI games played at the Old Trafford)

Record of chasing teams: Won – 0, Lost – 4

Probable Playing XIs:

England:

Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow (wk), Joe Root, Eoin Morgan (c), Sam Billings, Jos Buttler, Moeen Ali, Chris Woakes, Jofra Archer, Adil Rashid, Mark Wood.

Bench: Sam Curran, Tom Banton, Tom Curran.

Australia:

David Warner, Aaron Finch (c), Steve Smith, Marnus Labuschagne/Marcus Stoinis, Alex Carey (wk), Glenn Maxwell, Mitchell Marsh, Josh Hazlewood, Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Adam Zampa.

Bench: Matthew Wade, Ashton Agar, Daniel Sams, Josh Philippe, Matthew Wade, Sean Abbott, Nathan Lyon, Riley Meredith, Kane Richardson, Marnus Labuschagne/Marcus Stoinis.

Top Picks:

David Warner

Mark Wood

Since the start of 2019, Mark Wood has taken 30 wickets across 16 ODI innings at an average of 26.33 and a strike rate of 28.53.

Eoin Morgan

Eoin Morgan has scored 1270 runs across 33 home ODIs against Australia at an average of 50.80 with help of an unbeaten century and 11 fifties.

Our Betting Tips:

The return of Steve Smith could provide much-needed stability for Australia in the middle-order on a two-paced track available at the Old Trafford.

Probable Winners:

England is expected to win this match and level the series.

Match Details:

The 1st game of the 3-match ODI series between England and Australia will be played at The Old Trafford in Manchester.

The match starts at 01:00 PM local time (05:30 PM IST) (12:00 PM UTC). This match can be viewed on Sony Six and Sony Six HD. It will be live-streamed on the Sony Liv app.

Preview:

England and Australia will lock horns in the first game of the 3-match ODI series to be played on Friday. All the three matches of this ODI series will be played at the Manchester’s Old Trafford. The two teams were part of a 3-match T20I series in Southampton which the hosts clinched by 2-1 margin. All three games in that series were thrilling one despite none of the turned out to be a high-scoring one. This series against Australia will be the first for England since the 2019 World Cup where they will have a near full-strength team.

Pitch Condition/Report:

The track at the Old Trafford is generally good for the batsmen and tends to slow down as the match progresses. Hence, the teams winning the toss usually prefer batting first only. Targets over 280 could be tricky at this venue to chase down.

Average first innings score: 277 (Last three ODIs played at the Old Trafford)

Record of chasing teams: Won – 0, Lost – 3

Probable Playing XIs:

England:

Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow (wk), Joe Root, Eoin Morgan (c), Sam Billings, Jos Buttler, Moeen Ali, Chris Woakes, Tom Curran, Jofra Archer, Adil Rashid.

Bench: Sam Curran, Tom Banton, Mark Wood.

Australia:

David Warner, Aaron Finch (c), Steve Smith, Marnus Labuschagne, Alex Carey (wk), Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis/Mitchell Marsh, Ashton Agar/Josh Hazlewood, Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Adam Zampa.

Bench: Matthew Wade, Ashton Agar/Josh Hazlewood, Daniel Sams, Josh Philippe, Matthew Wade, Sean Abbott, Nathan Lyon, Riley Meredith, Kane Richardson, Marcus Stoinis/Mitchell Marsh.

Expected Top Players:

Marnus Labuschagne

Marnus Labuschagne made a solid start to his ODI career scoring 305 runs from 6 innings with help of a century, two fifties and two scores of 40s.

Joe Root

Joe Root will start the series under the pressure of sealing his place in the white-ball formats. A lot of batting options for England in ODIs could see the end of Root from this format if he doesn’t prove his worth.

Jofra Archer

Jofra Archer will be hoping to put on some inspiring performances with the ball as he did during the World Cup. Jofra took 23 wickets in the 14 ODIs he picked with help of five 3-wicket hauls.

Our Betting Tips:

The pitch in Manchester could produce some help for the spinners as England skipper wanted his team to be prepared for slower tracks in India during the next World Cup. Hence, we could see spinners succeeding more on Friday.

Probable Winners:

England is expected to win this match and take a 1-0 lead.

England vs Australia, 2020: 3rd T20I – Who will win the toss? Best Betting Odds

Match Details:

The 3rd game of the 3-match T20I series between England and Australia will be played at The Rose Bowl in Southampton. The match starts at 06:00 PM local time (10:30 PM IST) (05:00 PM UTC). This match can be viewed on Sony Six and Sony Six HD. It will be live-streamed on the Sony Liv app.

Preview

England and Australia will lock horns for one final time in the ongoing three-match T20I series on Tuesday. The hosts have already won the series and will be looking to whitewash the Aussie led by Aaron Finch. Moreover, the number one position in the T20Is is also up for grabs and Australia will be keen on saving their numero-uno position.

It won’t be easy though for England as they will miss their in-form opener Jos Buttler who has left the bio-bubble to be with his family. Tom Banton will open the innings now and while Sam Billings will replace Buttler. Moreover, Eoin Morgan also dislocated his finger in the second T20I and it remains to be seen if he will take the field tonight.

Pitch Condition/Report

Again, the same pitch used in the second T20I is expected to be dished out and if that is the case, the surface will be even drier. The scoring won’t be easy at all and the team winning the toss is expected to bat first.

Average first innings score: 160 (First two games in the series)

Record of chasing teams: Won – 1, Lost – 1, Tied – 0

Probable Playing XIs

England:

Jonny Bairstow (wk), Tom Banton, Dawid Malan, Eoin Morgan (c), Sam Billings, Moeen Ali, Jofra Archer, Adil Rashid, Chris Jordan, Mark Wood, Tom Curran.

Bench: Joe Denly, Sam Curran.

Australia:

David Warner, Aaron Finch (c), Steve Smith, Alex Carey/Matthew Wade (wk), Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Mitchell Marsh/Andrew Tye, Ashton Agar, Kane Richardson, Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc.

Bench: Alex Carey/Matthew Wade, Marnus Labuschagne, Daniel Sams, Josh Philippe, Matthew Wade, Sean Abbott, Josh Hazlewood, Nathan Lyon, Riley Meredith, Kane Richardson, Mitchell Marsh/Andrew Tye, Adam Zampa.

Expected Top Players

Dawid Malan

Dawid Malan has been at the peak of his form this season and has scored 108 runs in two T20Is so far. Batting at three, he will be key for England in Buttler’s absence.

Steve Smith

Steve Smith loves to bat. But for some reason, he hasn’t hit his strips properly so far in this series. But with the ODIs coming up, Australia’s best batsman will be looking to end the series on a high.

Adil Rashid

Adil Rashid’s variations will be important whenever England bowls. He generally troubles Australian batsmen and he proved it in the series opener picking Smith and Maxwell in an over to turn things around.

Our Betting Tips

Australia will come hard at England with their number one position at stake. But one feels England have enough resources despite Buttler’s absence to complete a 3-0 whitewash and go into the ODI series high on confidence.

Our Prediction: England are expected to win this match.

England vs Australia, 2020 – 2nd T20I – Who will win the Match? Best Betting Odds

Match Details:

The 2nd game of the 3-match T20I series between England and Australia will be played at The Rose Bowl in Southampton. The match starts at 02:15 PM local time (06:45 PM IST) (01:15 PM UTC). This match can be viewed on Sony Six and Sony Six HD. It will be live-streamed on the Sony Liv app.

Preview

The second T20I of the three-match series between England and Australia is the must-win game for the visitors. The series opener was an absolute roller coaster ride with Australia bossing the game throughout. However, England bowlers pulled back things dramatically in the last six overs of the chase. The likes of Chris Jordan, Tom Curran, Jofra Archer, Mark Wood and others bowled well to pick wickets.

Australia, on the other hand, will be ruing the missed opportunity to take the lead after David Warner and Aaron Finch started off superbly in the chase. However, their middle-order is a big concern and Marcus Stoinis, Glenn Maxwell and Alex Carey should deliver soon. With this being a must-win game, expect the tourists to put their best foot forward.

Pitch Report

The surface at the Ageas Bowl was not as straight forward to bat on. With this match also being played on the same surface, the pitch will be drier and the spinners are expected to dominate.

Average first innings score: 173 (Last four T20Is played at this venue)

Record of chasing teams: Won – 2, Lost – 2, Tied – 0

Probable Playing XIs

England:

Jonny Bairstow (wk), Jos Buttler, Tom Banton, Dawid Malan, Eoin Morgan (c), Moeen Ali, Jofra Archer, Adil Rashid, Chris Jordan, Mark Wood, Tom Curran.

Bench: Joe Denly, Sam Curran, Sam Billings.

Australia:

David Warner, Aaron Finch (c), Steve Smith, Alex Carey (wk), Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Ashton Agar, Kane Richardson, Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Adam Zampa.

Bench: Matthew Wade, Marnus Labuschagne, Mitchell Marsh, Daniel Sams, Josh Philippe, Matthew Wade, Sean Abbott, Josh Hazlewood, Nathan Lyon, Riley Meredith, Kane Richardson, Andrew Tye.

Expected Top Players

Aaron Finch

Aaron Finch batting in full flow is a dangerous sign for any opposition. He opened the innings in the series opener and scored 46 runs as well. However, he will be disappointed with the fact that he got out at the wrong time. Expect him to go bonkers tonight again.

Jos Buttler

England continued to back Jos Buttler to open the innings and it paid off. He wicketkeeper-batsman took the attack to Australia in the powerplay and slammed 44 off just 29 deliveries. He will be crucial again for England up front in the second match.

Ashton Agar

This might surprise many but Ashton Agar is an underrated bowler. He nipped out crucial wickets of Buttler and Tom Banton in the previous game and conceded only 32 runs despite going for 16 in the opening over.

Betting Tips

England may be leading the series but even they know that they were a bit lucky as well to win the first game. Their batting struggled when the spinners came on and then the bowlers didn’t strike in the powerplay. Australia, on the other hand, didn’t seem to be rusty at all and they will be keen on levelling the series. They will be eager to pull one back on their arch-rivals.

Our Prediction: Australia are expected to win this match.

England vs Australia, 2020 – 1st T20I – Who will win the Match? Best Betting Odds

Match Details:

The 1st game of the 3-match T20I series between England and Australia will be played at The Rose Bowl in Southampton.

The match starts at 6:00 PM local time (10:30 PM IST) (5:00 PM UTC). This match can be viewed on Sony Six and Sony Six HD. It will be live-streamed on the Sony LIV.

Preview

Finally, Australia will be taking the field six months after playing their last international match. They will face England in the first of the three-match T20I series starting from September 4. The Aaron Finch-led side will be looking forward to playing some fearless cricket and looking ahead to the T20 World Cup next year as well. It will also be interesting to see how they fare since this is their first match in six months.

England, the hosts, have been ruling the home season. They won Test series against West Indies and Pakistan, ODI series against Ireland and drew the T20I series against Pakistan. The T20Is and ODIs against Australia concludes their international home season and the team will be keen on ending with series wins. Jos Buttler and Jofra Archer have returned to bolster their line-up and it is expected to be close game.

Pitch Conditions

Southampton last hosted a T20I way back in 2017 when England faced South Africa. The surface is touted to be a good one to bat on. Last time Australia played at this venue, they posted a mammoth 248 runs in 20 overs.

Average first innings score: 177 (Last three T20Is played at this venue)

Record of chasing teams: Won – 2, Lost – 1, Tied – 0

Probable Playing XIs

England:

Jonny Bairstow (wk), Jos Buttler, Tom Banton, Dawid Malan, Eoin Morgan (c), Sam Billings, Moeen Ali, Jofra Archer, Adil Rashid, Chris Jordan, Mark Wood/Tom Curran.

Bench: Joe Denly, Sam Curran, Mark Wood/Tom Curran.

Australia:

David Warner, Aaron Finch (c), Steve Smith, Matthew Wade/Marnus Labuschagne, Alex Carey (wk), Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Ashton Agar/Andrew Tye, Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Adam Zampa.

Bench: Matthew Wade/Marnus Labuschagne, Mitchell Marsh, Daniel Sams, Josh Philippe, Matthew Wade/Alex Carey, Sean Abbott, Josh Hazlewood, Nathan Lyon, Riley Meredith, Kane Richardson, Ashton Agar/Andrew Tye.

Expected Top Players

Glenn Maxwell

Glenn Maxwell is a freak when it comes to the shortest format of the game. This is his comeback to international cricket after almost a year and he would love to make it a memorable one for him. His average of 160.3 after 61 T20Is shows the way he bats and it remains to be seen if the Big Show will entertain the fans.

Jofra Archer

Jofra Archer is playing his first limited-overs game since the World Cup 2019 final. His skills are never in question and Australia will be wary of the threat he possesses. This is also only the second T20I of Archer’s career and no wonder he will be keen to make early inroads.

Eoin Morgan

Eoin Morgan, the England skipper, is in the best of forms with the bat. His 66-run knock of 33 deliveries in a steep chase against Pakistan was one of the best innings in recent times. The southpaw will be crucial for England yet again.

Betting Tips

England and Australia are arch-rivals and whenever these two teams meet, the game goes down the wire. The visitors have enough fire power to defeat the home team but they will be a bit rusty having not played international cricket in last six months. England, on the other hand, have momentum in the home season.

Our Prediction: England are expected to win this match.
