Australia vs England Prediction and Pick

Historically, Australia have dominated the rivalry in the fifty-over format. Since 2011, they have played 21 ODIs in Australia, with the hosts winning 15 and England claiming six. Australia also have a nearly full-strength side while England are without several of their key players. We predict Australia to win this clash.

England: Jason Roy, Phil Salt, James Vince, Sam Billings, Jos Buttler (c/wk), Moeen Ali, Sam Curran, Chris Woakes, Adil Rashid, Luke Wood, Olly Stone

Australia Holds Edge over a Second-String England Side 

Just three days after lifting the T20 World Cup trophy, England are set to lock horns with Australia in the first of three ODIs. The two teams will meet at Adelaide Oval on Thursday. 

Jos Buttler's men are on cloud nine after defeating Pakistan in the T20 World Cup final in front of the packed MCG on Sunday. They now have to abort their celebrations and shift the focus back to cricket as they return to the venue they annihilated India a week back.

As for the fifty-over format, the world champions lost a home series against India by 2-1 in July. They were then tied 1-1 versus South Africa before the rain played spoilsport in the decider. 

Australia suffered a shock exit in the group stage of the recent T20 World Cup. With question marks over some of the seniors, Australia need to get back to winning. This also marks the beginning of a new era with Pat Cummins taking over the captaincy from Aaron Finch, who retired from the format. 

Australia played two bilateral series in September against Zimbabwe and New Zealand. They defeated Zimbabwe in the first two ODIs but lost the third one. The Aussies then hammered the Black Caps by 3-0 away from home. 

Team News

Australia has their frontline bowling attack available for this series. The likes of Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood, Pat Cummins and Adam Zampa weren't quite at their best in T20s but remain a potent combination in the fifty-over format. Cameron Green is likely to get the bowling all-rounder's spot. Australia will be without Glenn Maxwell after the Victorian all-rounder suffered a freak injury that put him out of action for several months. The batting unit has David Warner, Steve Smith, Marnus Labuschagne and Alex Carey. Travis Head is likely to be Finch's successor at the top while Mitchell Marsh and Marcus Stoinis could be fighting for one spot. 

England will be without a few of their key players such as Joe Root, Liam Livingstone and Mark Wood as the trip is part of the upcoming Test series versus Pakistan. The batting line-up is likely to comprise the returning Jason Roy, Phil Salt, James Vince, Jos Buttler and Sam Billings. England could be cautious with Dawid Malan, who is recovering from a groin injury. Moeen Ali and Sam Curran will provide the balance as all-round options. The bowling could comprise Chris Woakes, Adil Rashid, Olly Stone and one of David Willey or Luke Wood.  

Key Players 

Josh Hazlewood is amongst the best bowlers going around in limited-overs cricket. The right-arm pacer has the ability to run through the opposition's top order with the new ball. He has played 67 ODI matches, picking 105 wickets at an average of 25.82 and an excellent economy of 4.59. Hazlewood has snared four or more wickets on four occasions in the format. 

Jos Buttler rated as the greatest white-ball batter England has ever produced, will be crucial in the batting unit with several players missing. He has a remarkable record in ODI cricket, having scored 4245 runs at an average of 40.45 while striking at an incredible 119.47. Buttler has smashed 10 centuries and 22 half-centuries in the format.
