Australia1.75 England2.17


You might argue that England’s victory in the first T20 match of the series was solely the result of Australia resting their frontline bowlers. But with their most recent emphatic win in the second game? Talent, not chance, is what makes things happen.

When Australia fell eight runs short of England’s total of 178, they had no more justifications. By the end, Australia had turned the situation into a match, but it was too little, too late.

Hats congratulations to England for winning the best-of-three series versus Australia by a score of 2-0.



What exactly went wrong with Australia, then?

The team’s best bowlers returning wasn’t much of a help. Mitchell Starc received relentless ground abuse and finished with an abysmal Economy Rate of 10.50. Starc did manage to get a wicket, albeit at a cost of 42 runs to the team.

Josh Hazlewood was maybe the greatest problem throughout the game because of his ER of 9.75, which was only helpful as a glass hammer. He had a four-over total of 0/39 and allowed the English hitters far too many open fielding chances.

Steve Smith’s continued exclusion from the T20 series against England surprised many people since the squad may have benefited from his maturity and expertise. The choice may be made to rest Smith for the World Cup and give players like Marsh, David, and Stoinis more in-game experience.

Warner was removed for only four runs, while skipper Finch exited the game for just 13 runs, meaning Australia’s opening batsmen made a poor decision to have some of the lowest scores of the year. The team’s middle and lower order hitters are placed under strain when they get off to such a bad start.

Mitchell Marsh fortunately provided Australia with unexpected help, scoring 45 runs off of only 29 balls. Marsh has been a huge help to the Australian team at a time when the group needs new blood since Warner, Smith, and Finch all have a lot of experience under their belts.

Tim David also put out a tremendous effort to claim the victory, and he is now hitting form. Although his 40 runs from 23 balls brought Australia within striking distance, Sam Curran of England skillfully bowled him.


An Australian must lift their head to England today, even though doing so requires a lot of work.

England’s destruction of its longtime rival Australia was just outstanding. But Dawid Malan deserves credit for this victory, so let’s give him what’s due.

England’s opening batter confidently shown why his position in the English side is a certainty after scoring a mammoth 82 runs off 49 deliveries (7 fours and 4 sixes).

Malan has amassed 1,669 runs with an average of 39.73 in 50 matches throughout his T20 career, which is quite outstanding. Despite falling short of his career-high total of 103*, his 82 runs placed England in a strong position to win right away.

When Stokes and Brook were dismissed for a combined eight runs, Australia had a glimmer of hope, but Mooen was the team’s star when he added his 44 runs off 27 balls. This significantly improved England’s final score, which ultimately proved to be too much for Australia.

Sam Curran, who bowled the match with 3/25 and an ER of 6.25, had the best performance. Curran unquestionably contributed to the victory and made any Australia comeback very hard.


Any team winning the toss should bowl first, as the pitch is better for batsmen later in the match. This is especially true if rain has hit the pitch.  


Given that it will rain and be cooler (14°C) on Friday in Canberra, the pitch may become less springy and the outfield may move more slowly.


Which direction will Australia go? Fight to the very end to reclaim at least one win or wave the white flag and concede that the series is over? Although it’s difficult to predict, one must assume that Australia will rest many of its great players and reserve the rematch for the T20 World Cup.

It’s a good opportunity for David, Marsh, and Cameron Green to get more experience in the batting order, and Nathan Ellis and Kane Richardson should make it into the starting lineup so they have more bowling options later on.

Australia will find it difficult to lose one more game in the series, but since England won the first two games 2-0, there is little need to worry about the next game. Younger players have an opportunity to get valuable experience, but other from that, Oz should concentrate on the World Cup.

On the other side, England will be celebrating their easy victory against Australia. They’ll keep using the same lineup that was so successful while maintaining team bonding in front of the significant T20 competition.

Speculate on England to win.
