England vs Australia, 3rd T20I

Starts at 22:30 IST, Sep 08

Before this series began, Australia were ranked No.1 in the world and England ranked No.2 in T20I cricket. If Eoin Morgan's side wins the final match on Tuesday (September 9), they will retain the top spot that they snatched from Australia after their win in the second T20I. Although. if Australia can end their series on a high, they will retain top spot.

Aside from some bragging rights, how much the rankings truly matter is debatable. England, who claimed the top ranking after their second game win and will retain it if they win the third match, put some store by being in the top two ahead of last summer's 50-over World Cup. The rationale was that previous winners had tended to be ranked either first or second in the world and Morgan also wanted his team to get used to the expectation.

There has been less talk around the camp of achieving the same ahead of next year's T20 WC in India but the same principles surely apply. At the very least, a year out from the tournament it would be a timely statement of intent. And naturally, usurping their traditional rivals would make it even sweeter.

Australia have played some decent cricket at times during the series but have failed to sustain their good periods with either bat or ball for long enough. Although they have been careful not to use it as an excuse, the six-month lay-off ahead of this series cannot have helped their cause in that regard. The tourists have just looked a little short, but things might have been very different had they managed to win the opening match, as they should have done.

Instead, they are potentially looking at a second successive bilateral limited-overs whitewash in England, following their 5-0 defeat in an ODI series in 2018. Australia did, of course, beat England in last summer's World Cup warm-up and group stage matches, although they then lost the semi-final, but in bilateral fixtures, their recent white-ball record in England is poor. Should Australia fall to a third defeat, it would be the first time they have lost three T20 games in a row since late 2018.

In the absence of Jos Buttler, who has been released from the squad for personal reasons, England will clearly be weakened. After all, Buttler has played two vital innings in the series and been the only batsman to really master the pitch conditions. Of late, however, England's record without him is about the same as with him. They have won 70% of the games Buttler has played since the start of the 2018 home summer and 72% of the games he has missed.

Nevertheless, Australia's bowlers will certainly be happy they do not have to bowl at him. Their batsmen, on the other hand, are set for another examination against the pace of Jofra Archer and Mark Wood with the new ball, Adil Rashid in the middle and then Tom Curran and Chris Jordan at the death. In the face of some excellent English bowling in the two matches to date, Australia's batsmen have been unable to put together an all-round 20 overs, playing well for a spell here or there before giving away the initiative.

In the first match, the tourists were coasting to England's target until the last five overs, when they imploded in a blaze of poor execution and decision making. In the second game, they were rocked by the pace of Archer and Wood, and a fine bit of fielding from Morgan, upfront before recovering somewhat at the back end. Their challenge in the final game is to put everything together in a more complete batting performance. They will certainly need to if they are to avoid a series whitewash.

When:Tuesday, September 8, 2020. 18:00 Local Time

Where: Ageas Bowl, Southampton

What to expect: It's set to be a cloudy but dry evening in Southampton for this final match which should mean a series this summer will pass off without any wet weather interruptions. Finally. Run-scoring hasn't been particularly easy for the batsmen in either match so far and given the same pitch is being used for the third game in succession, it could be hard work again.

Team News

England

Eoin Morgan has said that England would be selecting their first-choice side for this game although there will be at least one change, following Buttler's return home for personal reasons. That will mean either Sam Billings or Joe Denly slots into the middle order and Tom Banton moving up to open. If the finger Morgan dislocated on Sunday has not recovered sufficiently, both Billings and Denly are set to play with Moeen Ali captaining the side.

Possible XI: Jonny Bairstow, Tom Banton, Dawid Malan, Eoin Morgan, Sam Billings, Moeen Ali, Tom Curran, Chris Jordan, Adil Rashid, Jofra Archer, Mark Wood

Australia

Given the series has gone, Australia could decide to use the match to look at some other players. If they choose to do that, there could be opportunities for Josh Hazlewood or Riley Meredith in the bowling line-up, perhaps in place of Kane Richardson, who has been ineffective so far. Wicketkeeper Alex Carey has struggled with the bat in the first two games but is likely to keep his place ahead of the uncapped Josh Phillipe.

Possible XI: Aaron Finch, David Warner, Steve Smith, Glenn Maxwell, Alex Carey, Marcus Stoinis, Aston Agar, Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood, Adam Zampa

Squads:

England Squad: Tom Banton, Jonny Bairstow(w), Dawid Malan, Eoin Morgan(c), Sam Billings, Moeen Ali, Tom Curran, Chris Jordan, Adil Rashid, Jofra Archer, Mark Wood, Joe Denly, Sam Curran

Australia Squad: David Warner, Aaron Finch(c), Steven Smith, Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Alex Carey(w), Ashton Agar, Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Kane Richardson, Adam Zampa, Matthew Wade, Mitchell Marsh, Josh Hazlewood, Nathan Lyon, Sean Abbott, Andrew Tye, Marnus Labuschagne, Riley Meredith, Daniel Sams, Josh Philippe

Cong eng for 2/1

Wobbly Australia clinch dead rubber
September 08 2020

Mitchell Marsh guided Australia home with an unbeaten 39.

Australia managed to hold on to their number one spot in the T20I rankings with a five-wicket win over England in the final game of the three-match series at the Rose Bowl in Southampton. With only the top spot to play for after having conceded the series already, the visitors put up an allround show to pick up the five-wicket win.

Was it a straightforward win?

Well, it was until one point. Chasing a modest 146, they were cruising at one stage racing to 86/2 at the halfway mark. At that point, they needed just 60 more runs off 60 deliveries to complete formalities. But having collapsed once already in the series and with a middle order that has looked brittle, England always knew there could be an opening.

And they were not wrong! Adil Rashid went on to hurt Australia big time in the middle overs picking up three crucial wickets. Suddenly, Australia were 100/5 after 13 overs. Thankfully, there were no more hiccups from thereon as Mitchell Marsh and Ashton Agar saw the side through to victory with three balls to spare.

Did Australia change their batting approach?

For starters, they did send Marcus Stoinis in at number three, something they have been trying to do for a while. There was no David Warner tonight and his replacement Matthew Wade played one of the best shots of the series in the first over of the chase that saw Jofra Archer leak 16 runs. Stoinis looked impressive too in his stay cracking five boundaries and Australia tactically deployed Steven Smith at number 5 to tackle the spin threat.

Eventually, the move didn't work as Rashid first got rid of Glenn Maxwell before castling Aaron Finch in the same over with a googly. In his final ball of the spell, the big fish Smith was sent to the pavilion as the batsman got a leading edge while trying to work the ball towards the leg side. Marsh, who was playing his first game of the series, didn't panic though as he helped himself to a couple of fours and a six to ease himself in and eventually stay until the end.

How did the other changes work out?

Wade impressed in his short stay but couldn't make it count. Josh Hazlewood was impressive with the new ball though. He extracted movement and managed to keep Jonny Bairstow quiet in the powerplay. He was also rewarded with the wicket of Tom Banton who recklessly edged one behind.

For England, Sam Billings failed to make an impact in the middle overs as he made only four with the bat. An attempted reverse sweep failed miserably as he gloved one to first slip. Joe Denly fetched three back-to-back streaky boundaries in the penultimate over and remained unbeaten on 29 but it wasn't enough to prevent England from losing.

Who starred for England?

With the ball, it was Rashid who turned the game on its head for a brief moment. Tom Curran had a good outing as well but the other two pacers proved to be expensive. Bairstow was the star of the show with the bat and anyone who watched him bat in the powerplay would have never seen it coming. He struggled for timing throughout the six-over period but was willing to fight it out and come out on top eventually.

He smashed the spinners once he found his groove and helped himself to a half-century. His wicket eventually ensured England didn't get anywhere near 160. New skipper Moeen Ali looked impressive for a while as well but was sent back to the pavilion with 19 balls left in the innings, courtesy a great catch at the boundary by Smith.

Brief scores: England 145/6 in 20 overs (Jonny Bairstow 55, Joe Denly 29*; Adam Zampa 2-34, Mitchell Starc 1-20) lost to Australia 146/5 in 19.3 overs (Mitchell Marsh 39*, Aaron Finch 39; Adil Rashid 3-21) by five wickets

Super League points up for grabs as England, Australia switch gears

September 10 2020

Jason Roy returns for the ODIs, after an injury break

England are getting the band back together for this series against Australia. Well, most of them anyway. The home side have eleven of last summer's World Cup winning squad in their 14-man party for this series - the most they have picked in any ODI squad since that tournament - and they could select as many as nine of the team who played in the final against New Zealand. After missing some key batsmen in the T20I series, England are more or less at full strength for these 50-over games.

The last ODI meeting between these two sides was actually in the semi-final of last year's tournament, when England trounced Australia, having been comfortably beaten earlier in the competition - at Lord's in the group stage - by Aaron Finch's team. Those games were at the end of a four-year World Cup cycle, of course, whereas this three match series is at the start of the next one, as both teams look to build to the 2023 tournament in India.

They both have to qualify first, of course. This series will be only the second played as part of the ICC's new Cricket World Cup Super League which will determine qualification for the 2023 edition, with the top seven teams automatically getting a place in India. England's rubber against Ireland earlier this summer, which Eoin Morgan's men won 2-1, was the first series as part of the league. There are 30 more points up for grabs here, with the winning team of each game getting 10 points.

Each country will play four home and four away three-match series as part of the Super League. In the lead-up to the opening game on Friday (September 11), both captains spoke of the extra pressure that three-match series bring. There is little time to ease into things, as teams could in a five-match rubber, so starting fast is paramount. As Finch said in his pre-match press conference, two bad days and the series is suddenly gone. In a five-game series, you would still have a chance to come back in to things.

In that regards, Australia may have a slight advantage. England's likely starting team contains more players who have not played much recent international cricket. Chris Woakes, the leader of the attack, has not played any cricket since the end of the Test series against Pakistan last month while Jason Roy, who missed all six T20Is, last played a competitive match, a Bob Willis Trophy fixture for Surrey, in mid-August. Joe Root has had a few T20 games for Yorkshire of late but the step up to facing the likes of Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood will be significant.

In contrast, Australia look set to include only one player, Marnus Labuschange, who did not play at all in the T20I series and he was in fantastic form during the intra-squad warm-up matches in Southampton anyway. Otherwise, Australia's expected starting XI all had a hit-out in the T20I series which should have blown any cobwebs away from their six month lay-off. Australia's greater recent match practice doesn't necessarily mean anything, of course, but it certainly won't be a disadvantage.

For three years now, Australia's ODI form has been patchy. They have had some notable highlights, including the come-from-behind win in India in late 2018 and the five-nil whitewash of Pakistan in the UAE in early 2019, but more disappointments, including series defeats to India and South Africa at the start of this year. Of their last nine completed bilateral ODI series, Australia have won just two, a run that includes a 4-1 home defeat to England in early 2018 and a five-nil drubbing in the UK a few months later.

A lot has happened since then, of course. Those series will have little bearing on what is to come over the next seven days. And looking back is certainly not in Eoin Morgan's nature. For him, this series is all about looking forward to the next World Cup in India and trying to find areas of his team's game, such as the fielding, to improve. England may have most of their Class of 2019 back fit and available but there won't be any revelling in past glories. There is a new challenge ahead of them now.

When:Friday September 11, 2020. 13:00 Local Time

Where: Emirates Old Trafford, Manchester

What to expect: Old Trafford is traditionally one of the quickest and bounciest pitches in the country but Morgan expects the surface for Friday's game to be tacky, slow and good for the spinners, which suggests it won't be a particularly high scoring match. The weather is set to be overcast but dry - which is about as good as can be hoped for in Manchester.

Team News

England

England's full 14-man squad is available for selection with Morgan and Roy fully recovered from finger and side injuries respectively. Sam Billings is set to slot in at number six in the absence of Ben Stokes while Moeen Ali, who was not selected for the World Cup final, also looks set to be included given Morgan's prediction about the pitch. Jos Buttler, Mark Wood and Jofra Archer will all be playing their first ODIs since that famous day last July.

Possible XI: Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow, Joe Root, Eoin Morgan, Jos Buttler, Sam Billings, Moeen Ali, Chris Woakes, Adil Rashid, Jofra Archer, Mark Wood

Australia

Glenn Maxwell could also be in line for his first ODI since last summer's World Cup, batting in the middle order alongside Mitchell Marsh. Wicket-keeper Alex Carey was dropped for the final T20I after two low scores in the first two matches although he is set to retain his place, for now, in the 50-over team. He will need to improve on his recent ODI form with the bat, however. Since the World Cup, Carey averages just 13.

Possible XI: Aaron Finch, David Warner, Steve Smith, Marnus Labuschange, Glenn Maxwell, Mitchell Marsh, Alex Carey, Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood, Adam Zampa
