Let’s see the Match prediction of Eng vs Aus 1st ODI in detail. After the T20 series win, the world champions will lock their horn against Australia at Old Trafford. We have seen a lot of spectacular performances of Butler, Malan, Finch, Ashton Agar in the T20I series.
The 11 players out of 14 have played World Cup last year of England. They will play with their full strength squad in this series against the Aussies. The last time Australia and England played against each other was in the semifinal of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. Australia beat England comfortably at Lords under the captaincy of Aaron Finch. Last ODI series against Ireland, England won the series 2-1 and that was the first white-ball cricket series after the COVID-19 pandemic.
On the other hand, Australia playing their first ODI series COVID-19 pandemic. Their star players like David Warner, Glenn Maxwell, Aaron Finch have found their form in the T20 Series against England. But the main concern is top class batsman Steven Smith, he got the start but couldn’t quite convert into a big score. Stoinis was chipped on some occasions but couldn’t quite deliver a match-winning performance. If you talk about bowling of the Australian team Mitchell Starc, he didn’t find his rhythm in the T20 Series. But the good thing is Ashton Agar and Kane Williamson grab their chances with both hands
Weather & Pitch Prediction of Eng vs Aus 1st ODI Match
The Old Trafford pitch will support fast bowler, the surface will be quick and helps the pacers. The ball will seam initially and gets low in the latter half of the day. But as per the recent stats suggest it can be the high-scoring game if the conditions are Sunny.
England has announced their 14 -man squad, Captain Morgan, and Roy fully recovered from their finger injury and joined their Squad. Sam Billings will play at the number 6 position in the absence of Ben Stokes who has the match-winner for England against New Zealand in the final of the world cup 2019. Mark wood, Jofra Archer, and Chris Woakes will lead the attack for England along with leggie Adil Rashid.
Australia can bring Glenn Maxwell in the squad as an all-rounder instead of Mark Stoinis. There is a toss between Stoinis and Mitchell Marsh who played a match-winning score in the last T20 against England. There is a high chance that Mitchell Marsh will feature in the 1st ODI.
