After a 5-0 whitewash in the ODIs, Australia will take on England once again. This time, for the shorter format. While England is a massive force, the young guns representing Australia cannot be taken lightly because the team is backed by the Big Bash experience and IPL for a few.
Talking about IPL, Buttler got this ‘Midas touch’ when he was asked to open the innings for Rajasthan Royals. He will be their main man today. Almost every single batsmen in England have got their form right on top getting into this T20I series. Whereas, Australian batsmen will have a work to do here.
Talking about the bowling, both the teams will have a tough time here. Having said that, Australian bowlers did well in the IPL, especially, Andrew Tye.
Both Alex Carey and Tim Paine will be under the scanner to perform well today.
Here are the players to watch out for:
Jos Buttler: Buttler is having an extraordinary season with the bat. Right from the IPL, he is leading the team from the front, and in the last ODI, he took Australia home with his brilliant hundred.
Alex Carey: The newly appointed Vice-captain will look to make his mark in the T20Is
Moeen Ali: Australia couldn’t read Ali’s variation, and he will look to rattle Australia once again.
Aaron Finch: After 5-0 whitewash in the ODIs, the shorter format might bring some luck to the captain.
