Australia vs England – ODI Series Winner Odds
Australian Cricket is going through a period of change and the new team are taking time to adapt.
After the first two ODI’s against England, its clear the Aussie team in transition, under new coach Justin Langer, are taking big steps back towards becoming fully competitive again.
After 2 very close losses, its clear that the time has arrived to translate those glorious defeats into resounding victories.
First ODI report – In the first ODI at The Oval in London, the understrength, young and inexperienced Aussie ODI side came up only 3 wickets short of a win against a full strength English unit. With a few more runs from the top-order, that first match could have easily translated into a win as the England got the ‘wobbles’ in chasing down the small total.
Second ODI report – In the second ODI at Cardiff’s Sophia Gardens, England powered their way to 8-342 on the back of some powerhouse hitting from Jos Buttler and Jason Roy to put in England out of reach. A magnificent 131 from Shaun Marsh put the Aussies within touching distance but they fell just short in compiling 304.
Ashton Agar has been one of the revelations over the two matches with strong all-round batting and bowling performances. He’ll relish a return to Trent Bridge in Nottingham, where in 2013, he scored 98 in his test debut batting from Number 11.
