England and Australia will clash against each other at The Rose Bowl, Southampton. We will cover ENG vs AUS 1st T20I Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing XI, and Fantasy Cricket Tips.
England has won all the series that they have played so far this summer. They have won the Test series against West Indies and Pakistan, then the ODI series against Ireland, and drew the T20I series against Pakistan. Now, they would be high on confidence going into the T20I series against Australia.
Some of the players who were missing in the T20 squad against Pakistan have been added this time against Australia, and the squad looks much stronger.
- With the return of Jos Butler into the team, it is most likely that Jonny Bairstow and Jos Butler would be the openers.
- Either David Malan or Tom Banton might play at NO.3 followed by Eoin Morgan and Sam Billings.
- The all-rounders Moeen Ali, Sam Curran, and Chris Jordan would be crucial in the lower middle order.
- Jofra Archer and Tom Curran/Mark Wood along with the spinner Adil Rashid, will form the core bowling attack of the team.
It has been a very long time for almost six months since Australia have played any form of international cricket. The last T20I played by them was against South Africa where they had put up a brilliant performance and won the series 2-1 against them.
With the return of all the players into the squad, the Australian squad looks very dangerous in all the departments, and it would not be easy for England to defeat a team like Australia.
- Aaron Finch and David Warner will be opening the innings for the team, and their left-right combination can trouble the bowlers.
- Steve Smith will be playing at NO.3 followed by the firepower Glenn Maxwell, M Marsh and Alex Carey.
- All-rounders Mitchell Marsh and Ashton Agar are equally good with both bat and ball which provides balance to the team.
- Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, and Kane Richardson are most likely to be the pace attack of the team followed by the spinner Adam Zampa.

The pitch is generally favourable to batsmen, but the team batting first will have an advantage as the ball nicely comes on to the bat. There would be not much change in the pitch in the course of 40 overs, so both the teams have an equal chance of winning.
There are slight chances of rain during the match, so we can expect interruptions or even a reduction in the number of overs as the match progresses.
