After India vs Pakistan game, MCG will host yet another rivalry game, England vs Australia. As of now, this clash between England and Australia is considered crucial as both the teams couldn’t afford to lose a game, as they both have already lost one each. Apart from their losses, both the teams seem so strong bench-wise. They have an equal number of match winners. So there is no doubt it will be a higher-level test for the squads and a feast for the eyes of the spectators.
- Ground: MCG, Melbourne
- Date: 28th Oct 2022
- Time: 1.30 IST / 08:00 AM GMT / 07:00 PM LOCAL
MCG in night matches will have the best conditions for swing bowling. Since both teams have extraordinary speedsters, run-making isn’t going to be easy.
Probable XI for Eng vs Aus
Jos Buttler (c), Moeen Ali, Sam Curran, Chris Jordan, Liam Livingstone, Dawid Malan, Adil Rashid, Ben Stokes, Chris Woakes, Mark Wood, Alex Hales
David Warner, Aaron Finch(c), Mitchell Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Tim David, Matthew Wade(wk), Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Adam Zampa, Josh Hazlewood
Captain: M Marsh
Since M Marsh has started bowling in this tournament, he is the best option we can go for a skipper. Big game player.
Vice-captain: J Buttler
Wicketkeeper: Jos Buttler
J Buttler usually has the habit of playing well in important games. And he is still in good touch.
Batters: M Marsh, D Warner, A Hales
D Warner and A Hales are the two openers. It’s a bit risky, but once they get settled, they will give their 100 per cent for the team. D Warner is a big game player.
All-rounders: G Maxwell, S Curran, M Stoinis, L Livingstone
G Maxwell and M Stoinis are two perfect all-rounders who can do both in A grade.
S Curran can be expensive and, at the same time, a good wicket-taker.
L Livingstone can be on at any time. When he goes off, the whole MCG will be ignited.
Bowlers: C Woakes, M Wood, J Hazlewood
With the swinging conditions, you can’t afford to lose these three exponents of seam bowling.
