The undisputed champions of the white-ball format will be taking on the hosts in a 3-match ODI series which begins with the 1st ODI in Adelaide. 

There will be a few changes to the squads and we can expect a slightly different bowling attack from the world champions. The Aussies have also recalled Travis Head for the ODIs. Head was playing in the Sheffield Shield before he received the call for the national side. 

Maxwell suffered an injury and is out with a fractured leg. Sean Abbott has replaced him in the Australia squad for this series. This will be Australia’s first ODI since Aaron Finch announced his retirement from ODI cricket.

Pat Cummins, the Test skipper, will also lead Australia in the One Dayers. Alex Carey is back with the gloves and many all-rounders are included in this squad.

England have called Sam Billings and James Vince to be part of the ODI squad while deciding to rest Stokes and Wood.

Australia Preview

After the early exit from the T20I World Cup in their own backyard, Australia are now under pressure to perform better in the upcoming home series against England and West Indies.

They have selected their best and strongest squad for this series. Pat Cummins has proved to be a strong leader and is the right choice to lead this side in the ODIs. 

With Alex Carey back in the side to keep wickets, he has a big role to play in the middle order. He has been a reliable player down the order over the years and will be a key player to watch out for.

With Finch out of the side, Australia now have to figure out who will be the right choice to be Warner’s opening partner. Steve Smith and Marnus Labuschagne have been the preferred options at 3 and 4. 

Cameron Green has opened for Australia in the T20Is and can be a good option. He has a more attacking approach to batting and can give the Aussies a good start.

Green as a bowling all-rounder has shown great promise with both bat and ball and will likely make it to the XI. Other batting all-rounders in this squad like Travis Head and Marcus Stoinis are also impactful and essential for Australia to dominate. 

The bowling attack consists of the usual suspects. Cummins will lead the pace trio of Hazlewood and Starc with the leg-break bowler Adam Zampa in the mix.

Australia Predicted Playing XI:

David Warner, Steve Smith, Marnus Labuschagne, Marcus Stoinis, Alex Carey (wk), Cameron Green, Sean Abbott, Pat Cummins (c), Josh Hazlewood, Mitchell Starc, Adam Zampa

England Preview

Jos Buttler and co. will be on top of their game as they resume their Australia tour after a successful T20 World Cup campaign. They will take a lot of confidence from the championship win along with the earlier series win against Australia on this tour. 

The last time these two teams met in an ODI series in Australia was in 2018. England came out on top with a 4-1 win. Many of the players from that series are still part of the ODI squad.

With Jason Roy, James Vince, and Jos Buttler in the top order, England look threatening with the bat. In stark contrast to Australia’s selections, England have gone all out on bowling all-rounders.

5 of the 6 all-rounders in the England squad are bowling all-rounders. England will need to figure out their middle order and assign roles for players who will be responsible for building the innings. 

On their last white-ball tour of Australia, England enjoyed the services of Joe Root and Eoin Morgan in the middle order. Someone needs to step up and don the role of a dependable and reliable middle-order batsman. 

Sam Billings is the top choice for that role in the middle order. Then there’s Moeen Ali and if Malan was fit enough to join the ODI squad, Buttler can send himself lower down the order just like on their 2018 tour of Australia.

In the lower order, Sam Curran and Chris Woakes are the most promising batters with the ability to score off the pacers. There is no shortage of options as far as the bowling is concerned and with their current bowling form, England will be lethal when they get on the field.

England Predicted Playing XI:

Jason Roy, James Vince, Jos Buttler (c & wk), Philip Salt, Sam Billings, Moeen Ali, Sam Curran, Chris Woakes, David Willey, Chris Jordan, Adil Rashid

Weather Conditions

The pitch at the Adelaide Oval is considered to be one of the best batting tracks in Australia. However, there is also help on offer for the spinners from this pitch. Adil Rashid and Ashton Agar can make an impact and will be the ones to watch out for.

Venue Details

The Adelaide Oval will host the opening match of this ODI series. The average 1st innings score at this ground in ODIs is 228 runs. A total of 31 times from 87 matches a team has scored 250 or more runs at this venue in Adelaide.

Toss: To Bat

Teams batting first have won 47 of the 87 ODIs played at this venue. Both teams have a strong bowling attack that can defend a good total. Given the help that batters receive from this pitch, either of these teams with their best batting lineup can post a competitive total batting first.

Australia will be back after a brief time of reflection on their recent performance in the T20 World Cup. They will be without their former ODI skipper. Nevertheless, they have selected their strongest ODI squad with a lethal bowling attack and a deep batting lineup. England, who are strong on the bowling front, have a few boxes to tick in the batting department. Australia have the home advantage and a slightly stronger squad in comparison and will hence start as favourites in our match prediction.

Our prediction is for Australia to win the match
