Head to Head
In 154 matches between the two sides, 86 have been won by Australia while England have won 63. England are clearly lagging behind in head to head record, and if Australia continue their dominance, then their lead would strengthen further.
Players to Watch Out For
For England it would definitely be Dawid Malan. Malan scored 134 in the first ODI. He was in great rhythm in the ICC World T20 2022. Despite troubling the entire batting lineup of England, the Aussie bowlers did not have an answer for Malan’s brilliance. A lot relies on him and the skipper Jos Buttler as both of them are senior pros and more importantly, both are in form.
The Top 3 of Australia remain the most dangerous factor. Warner, Smith and Head are unstoppable in their home conditions. All of them scored 65+ runs in the first ODI and they were the difference maker in that game. If England need to win, they better watch out for the top 3 of the kangaroos.
