Amid all the talk of the context of an ODI played four days after a T20 World Cup Final, it was Dawid Malan and Steve Smith who provided a reminder of how classy batting can still be a treat to watch in this format.

Both number threes were outstanding in Adelaide, and will be looking for more of the same on Saturday. The action moves to the famous SCG on what is forecast to be clear and beautiful afternoon, with Australia seeking to complete an expected series win given England are suffering a cricketing hangover having just won a major white-ball title.

But, Jos Buttler’s team showed fight in the first ODI. Dawid Malan’s century to take England to 287 was pleasing. The bowlers hung in despite Australia’s top three having a day out. Also, the tourists have the option of strengthening their XI after a number of first-teamers were left out of the first match.

However, they will have to overcome Steve Smith in particular, who said he’s feeling the best he has for six years. Watch out.

AUS vs ENG 2nd ODI Possible Playing XI

Australia may look to play two spinners again. So, Josh Hazlewood may miss out for the second straight game.

Australia: 1. David Warner, 2. Travis Head, 3. Steve Smith, 4. Marnus Labuschagne, 5. Alex Carey (wk), 6. Cameron Green, 7. Marcus Stoinis, 8. Ashton Agar, 9. Mitchell Starc, 10. Pat Cummins (c), 11. Adam Zampa

England rested a number of key players for the first match. They may look to bring in at least two of Moeen Ali, Adil Rashid, Sam Curran and Chris Woakes.

England: 1. Jason Roy, 2. Phil Salt, 3. Dawid Malan, 4. James Vince, 5. Sam Billings, 6. Jos Buttler (c & wk), 7. Moeen Ali/Liam Dawson, 8. Sam Curran/Luke Wood, 9. Chris Jordan, 10. David Willey/Adil Rashid, 11. Olly Stone/Chris Woakes

  • Jason Roy has good numbers against Australia (874 runs, avg. 41.61, SR 112.77), but has to guard against the in-coming delivery. He tends to leave a gap between bat and pad, and Australia will be looking to exploit it.
