ODI Cricket: Previewing the 1st ODI between England and Australia


England come into the 3 match ODI series mere days after winning the T20 World Cup. The defending double world champions are high on confidence and have had the wood over Australia in the last couple of encounters.

Australia on the other hand come into the series on the back of a disastrous world cup campaign. Where it was England who knocked them out of the tournament owing to poor run rate. Australia also have a new captain in Pat Cummins leading the line after the retirement of Aaron Finch from ODI cricket.

Venue – Adelaide Oval

Time – 9 AM IST

Likely Pitch Conditions –

There is going to excellent carry for the bowlers and will be a true pitch for the batters. The team winning the toss will look to bat first and make use of the conditions early as batting under lights could be a bit difficult. A score of 250-275 should be the ones the teams batting first will like to get.

David Warner, Travis Head, Steve Smith, Marnus Labuschagne, Cameron Green, Alex Carey, Marcus Stoinis, Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood and Adam Zampa
