England Tour of Australia 2022: Australia vs England – 2nd T20I Preview and Updates

England defeated Australia in a high-scoring thriller in Perth in the first Twenty20 International. While Nathan Ellis starred with the ball for Australia, taking 3 for 20 in his spell, the hosts clearly missed their star bowlers.

It was always going to be a high-scoring game between the two teams on a batting-friendly surface. However, Hazlewood and Cummins would have made a difference to England’s total.

In this match, Australia’s opening pair will be the ones to watch. Warner is in excellent form, as is Green. Stoinis appears to have found his groove in the middle order as well.

Tim David hasn’t been very consistent, but he’s put in some impressive performances recently. Lower down the order, Moeen Ali will be the finisher for England. Woakes, Wood, and Sam Curran are the key bowlers to keep an eye on in the England setup.

The 2nd T20I of Australia vs England will take place on October 12th, 2022 at Manuka Oval, Canberra.

Australia (Match Odds – 1.80):


Following a series victory over the West Indies, Australia immediately began their T20I series against England. In light of the upcoming T20 World Cup, Australia decided to rest their first-choice bowlers for the Perth T20I.

Starc, Hazlewood, Cummins, Maxwell, and Zampa will now join the Australians in the second and third T20Is. With all of these players back in the lineup, we can expect the hosts to bowl much better. With Matthew Wade coming in at number 7 and consistently delivering, he will be a key batter to keep an eye on, especially in run chases.

Mitchell Marsh, David Warner, and Aaron Finch all appear to be in good form. And a couple of these players are expected to make an impact in the second T20I. In the middle order, Maxwell and Stoinis have complete freedom to attack the opposition and play their strokes freely.

On paper, the Australians appear to be far more powerful than the visitors. We believe these two teams will be the top contenders for the T20 World Cup because their batting styles suit the Australian tracks. The Australian bowling attack, on the other hand, has a significant advantage over England and will give the team an advantage in the match.

Full Squad:

David Warner, Cameron Green, Mitchell Marsh, Aaron Finch(c), Marcus Stoinis, Tim David, Matthew Wade(w), Daniel Sams, Nathan Ellis, Kane Richardson, Mitchell Swepson, Josh Inglis, Ashton Agar, Sean Abbott, Steven Smith

Players to watch out for:

David Warner

Since making his debut in this format in January 2009, the left-handed opener has scored 2846 runs. In his last two innings, he has hit 18 fours and five sixes.

Glenn Maxwell

The batting all-rounder has had a poor run of form with the bat, but when on form, he is one of the most destructive batters. In this format, he has three centuries.

Josh Hazlewood

The all-rounder has 372 international wickets. This year, he has scored 4-12 and 4-16 in IT20s in Australia.

Possible Playing XI:

David Warner, Aaron Finch (c), Mitchell Marsh, Marcus Stoinis, Tim David, Cameron Green, Matthew Wade (wk), Glenn Maxwell, Pat Cummins, Josh Hazlewood, Mitchell Starc

England (Match Odds – 2.00):


England has made a promising start to their tour of Australia. A massive total was posted batting first, with their openers playing freely and confidently.

Buttler’s 68 off 32 balls is a promising start for England, as the captain leads the batting effort from the front. For the past year, he has been in excellent form, scoring runs all over the world, including in the IPL. The batting order was drastically altered in the first T20I, with Stokes and Harry Brook batting at 3 and 4, respectively, while Dawid Malan was dropped to number 7.

Sam Curran, a bowling all-rounder, was drafted ahead of Malan at number six. England may experiment with different positions for their batters ahead of the T20 World Cup.

We can expect more such changes in the second T20I as England attempts to find the perfect combination. Chris Woakes bats eighth in a deep batting order. The batting order appears to be well-balanced, with many big-hitting players spread throughout the lineup.

England’s bowling attack will be led by Reece Topley, Mark Wood, and Chris Woakes. Adil Rashid was costly in the previous game, but he is always the most important part of the English attack. Sam Curran, known for his ability to deliver breakthroughs, is the key bowler to watch in this attack.

Full Squad:

Jos Buttler(w/c), Alex Hales, Dawid Malan, Ben Stokes, Harry Brook, Moeen Ali, Sam Curran, Chris Woakes, Adil Rashid, Reece Topley, Mark Wood, Liam Livingstone, Philip Salt, David Willey, Chris Jordan

Players to watch out for:

Jos Buttler

The skipper was very impressive in his first game back, scoring 16 runs in the first over. In Perth, he had eight fours and four sixes.

Sam Curran

The bowling all-rounder was tasked with bowling the final over of the match, with Australia needing 16 runs to win. He gave up four points on the first ball but took 2-3 on the next five.

Reece Topley

The tall left-arm pace bowler represented England in the 2016 T20 World Cup but has been plagued by long-term injuries since. He is now back to his best, and on Sunday he dismissed Cameron Green and Daniel Sams.

Possible Playing XI:

Jos Buttler (c & wk), Alex Hales, Dawid Malan, Ben Stokes, Liam Livingstone, Moeen Ali, Sam Curran, Chris Woakes, Adil Rashid, Reece Topley, Mark Wood

While this venue has only hosted three T20 internationals, two of those matches were won by the team batting second. In contrast, the team batting second won 12 of the 19 domestic T20s. With a deep batting lineup that includes many match-winning big-hitters, both teams would bet on chasing a total at this venue.
