In the second game of the three-match series with Australia, World Champions England will look to make a strong comeback. The Englishmen played poorly in the previous game, falling at least 30 runs short of a good total and losing by 6 wickets. To level the series, they must produce a better show in this game.
Australia’s openers looked fantastic in the previous game. It will boost the team’s confidence on a Sydney track that can be challenging at times. England has a poor record in Sydney, having won only four of the last 15 games. The Australians would go for the kill, and the Englishmen would have to rise to the occasion in order to keep the series alive.
The 2nd ODI between Australia vs England will take place on November 19th, 2022 at the Sydney Cricket Ground, Sydney.

Pat Cummins will be pleased with his team’s first-game performance in Adelaide. The team won with ease, dominating the game from the start. Their bowlers performed admirably, and their top order delivered quality knocks in the chase. He’d like to keep this momentum going and win the series in two games.
In the previous game, David Warner and Travis Head put up a 147-run stand, and the team would like to replicate that performance. Steven Smith appears to be in good form, and he will lead the middle order alongside Marnus Labuschagne and Alex Carey. The team has batting depth, with Cameron Green, Marcus Stoinis, and Ashton Agar expected to perform well as finishers.
Mitchell Starc is back in form, which is great news for the team given his struggles in recent months. By sharing the new ball with Pat Cummins, he will try to put England under pressure. Adam Zampa and Ashton Agar would enjoy the track in Sydney, and the team would expect them to bowl well. Green and Stoinis add to the team’s offensive options.
Pat Cummins (c), Ashton Agar, Alex Carey, Cameron Green, Josh Hazlewood, Travis Head, Marnus Labuschagne, Mitchell Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, Steven Smith, Mitchell Starc, Marcus Stoinis, David Warner, Adam Zampa
Possible Playing XI:
Pat Cummins (c), David Warner, Travis Head, Steven Smith, Marnus Labuschagne, Alex Carey (wk), Marcus Stoinis, Cameron Green, Ashton Agar, Mitchell Starc, Adam Zampa
Jos Buttler will look to improve on his performance from the previous game. Their team selection astounded everyone because they ignored the spin attack. Apart from Dawid Manal, their top order failed to add runs. For this game, the team must go back to the drawing board and regroup. The Australians will not make it easy for the team, and Buttler will expect a better performance from his players.
Jason Roy and Phillip Salt did not score in the previous game. The team will be expected to perform well. After his century, Dawid Malan will carry the confidence and will need to form partnerships with James Vince and Sam Billings in the middle order. Buttler is a good hitter who would look to add quick runs down the order alongside David Willey and Chris Jordan.
The bowling attack struggled in the previous game. Because the Australian openers will be aggressive during the powerplay, David Willey and Olly Stone must bowl better lines with the new ball. Adil Rashid must play this game, and he will try to exploit the Sydney track. In this game, the team expects better performances from Chris Jordan and Luke Wood.
Jos Buttler (c), Moeen Ali, Sam Billings, Sam Curran, Liam Dawson, Chris Jordan, Dawid Malan, Adil Rashid, Jason Roy, Phil Salt, Olly Stone, James Vince, David Willey, Chris Woakes, Luke Wood
Possible Playing XI:
Jos Buttler (c & wk), Jason Roy, Philip Salt, Dawid Malan, James Vince, Sam Billings, Adil Rashid, Chris Jordan, David Willey, Luke Wood, Olly Stone

Australia vs England Toss Prediction
Batting first teams have won the last five games at this venue. The surface is best for batting in the first two innings, and spinners can wreck havoc in the third. This record will be kept in mind by both captains. The team that wins the toss will almost certainly bat first.
Australia vs England Pitch Report
Sydney Cricket Ground is one of the largest venues in the world, and scoring goals is never easy. However, the venue’s size allows for plenty of twos and threes. Batsmen who rotate their strikes have fared well on this pitch. The surface does reward fast bowlers early on. The ball turns sharply on this track, making it the best ground in Australia for spinners.
On November 19, Sydney would have overcast skies, making batting conditions difficult. This venue has seen a lot of cricket in recent months, and the wicket is expected to be slow. Spinners will also benefit from the conditions. The team batting first would be content with 300 runs in this game.
Australia vs England Prediction
In the previous game, England made mistakes in both planning and execution. Their batsmen threw away wickets, making Australia’s task easy. To defeat the Australians, the team would need partnerships from their batsmen. The Australians are well-versed in the conditions and are a difficult team to beat at the SCG. Their top order has been in good form, and this will make them the game’s favorites. Check out the odds at Cricbaba!
Australia is the favourite to beat England at the odds of 1.57.
Australia vs England Most Recommended Player for Bet:
