ENG vs AUS Dream11 Prediction: England vs Australia 2nd ODI – 13 September 2020 (Manchester)
Hosts England will take on Australia in the 2nd ODI match of the 3 matches ODI series. This promises to be the best cricket series after the Covid-19 break where two heavyweights of white-ball cricket will be up against each other.
England lost the first game of the series and now it’s a Do or Die game for them. The batting couldn’t bat according to their potential in the last game and would definitely like to get on the song here in this game. The likes of Jofra Archer, Adil Rashid, and Mark Wood are looking in a really good form with the bowl whereas Sam Billings and Jonny Bairstow have proved their form with the bat. The hosts would certainly like to bounce in this game.
Australia made a brilliant comeback in the last game after their top-order collapsed early in the last game. The batting of Mitchell Marsh and Glenn Maxwell would have done wonders to their confidence whereas the bowling line-up is also doing their job convincingly. It’s a golden opportunity for the Aussies to seal the series here. Steve Smith should return to his game if he can pass his concussion test.
This would be a really close game on paper but the English players would be much more eager to level the series.

He has scored 4898 ODI runs at an average of 40.82 whereas Smith is also a reliable ODI player and has scored at an average of 42.27 in this format, he will be a genuine threat at the number 3 position.

He played a brilliant inning of 73 runs under pressure in the last game and also picked a wicket in his bowling.

Rashid has picked 153 ODI wickets in 98 innings whereas Wood has picked 64 ODI wickets in 51 innings.
From Australia, Josh Hazlewood and Adam Zampa would make their way into our team.
