ENG vs AUS Dream11 Team and Match Preview: 2nd T20I, Australia tour of England 2020
England and Australia will clash against each other at The Rose Bowl, Southampton. We will cover ENG vs AUS 2nd T20I Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing XI, and Fantasy Cricket Tips.
England has been looking in great form in every format so far this summer and continued that form in the close contest in the last match. They performed well under pressure and turned a losing game into a victory by just 2 runs.
In the last match, batting first, England had a good start as Jos Butler scored 44 runs from just 29 balls, but after he got out, all the other players also went cheaply except David Malan.
He batted well even though the wickets were falling at the other end and scored 66 runs from 43 balls and helped the team post 162 runs.
England bowlers gave away runs initially, but they made a good come back in the second half of the innings. Jofra Archer and Adil Rashid bowled well, picking up 2 wickets each, and Mark Wood managed to pick up 1 wicket.
- Jonny Bairstow and Jos Butler will be the opening pair for England.
- David Malan will be playing at NO.3, followed by Tom Banton and Eoin Morgan.
- The all-rounders Moeen Ali, Tom Curran, and Chris Jordan would be crucial in the lower middle order.
- Jofra Archer and Mark Wood, along with the spinner Adil Rashid, will form the team’s core bowling attack.
Although the Australian team was playing International cricket after a long time, they put up an excellent performance and almost went on to win the match.
In the last match, they won the toss and elected to field first. The bowlers gave away runs at the beginning of the innings but later started picking up wickets and controlled the runs’ flow.
Glenn Maxwell and Kane Richardson were brilliant with the ball as they controlled the flow of runs and picked up 2 wickets each. Ashton Agar also picked up 2 wickets, and Pat Cummins managed to pick up 1 wicket.
With 163 runs to chase, Aaron Finch and David Warner put up a partnership of 98 runs in 11 runs, and it looked like they had everything under control. But they couldn’t score quickly in the middle overs and kept on losing wickets and, as a result, lost the match by 2 runs.
- 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, Marcus Stoinis, and Alex Carey.
- All-rounders Maxwell and Ashton Agar are equally good with both bat and ball, which provides balance.
- Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, and Kane Richardson are most likely to be the team’s pace attack, followed by the spinner Adam Zampa.

The pitch is generally favorable 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.
The weather will be mostly cloudy, and there are very slight chances of rain, but that should not interrupt the match’s proceedings.
