Cricket Free Tips | England vs Australia, 2020: 2nd T20I
The 2nd match of the 3-match T20I series between England and Australia will be held at The Rose Bowl in Southampton. The match will be kicked off on 6 September (Sunday) at 19:00 (GMT+6).
After the humdinger of a match in the first T20I, England and Australia get ready to face each other again for the 2nd T20I at the same venue on Sunday. In the last game the Aussies have themselves to blame for the defeat. After their top-order fell, the middle order was totally exposed and they struggled to pull off what should have been an easy chase.
While England will be proud of their performance, and in high confidence. They also want to win the second T20I, and seal the series. But Australia surely would not let things slip so easily out of their hands. They are expected to put up a hard battle and level the series.
On Sunday afternoon, it will be typical English weather in Southampton. It isn’t going to be too hot, the skies are going to be cloudy and precipitation chances are very low.
Although the pitch here is decent enough for batting, batsmen should be careful with the selection of their shots. The spinners could get some purchase out of the track.

Jonny Bairstow can score big and was in good form. But he couldn’t convert his starts. You can pick him in one of your Fantasy teams, if you wish. It is also helpful to have spinners in your team, as the pitch could slow down further. According to our cricket expert’s predictions, Australia is expected to win this game and level the series.
