England do not have fond memories of their previous trip to Cardiff. Just over a year ago, they were stunned by Pakistan in the semi-final of the Champions Trophy, a defeat which dashed the home side's hopes of a first global 50-over tournament success and set the Pakistanis on route to a famous victory. Cricket Betting Tips Free England had been strong favourites to win the competition, just as they are for next year's home World Cup, but they had an off-day and Pakistan pounced.
England have had a couple of off-days recently, too. Their defeat to Scotland in Edinburgh last weekend owed much to the excellence of the home team but also to their own profligacy with both bat and ball while England's two-wicket victory over Australia at the Oval on Wednesday in the first match of a five-game series was secured only after a nervy chase of a modest total. Cricket Betting Tips Two average performances are no reason to panic but there is plenty to work on ahead of the second match in Cardiff on Saturday (June 16).
Australia were not much better themselves in the capital - in truth it was a poor game - although their bowlers, with the rapid Billy Stanlake impressing, at least put up a fight after the batsmen had let them down badly on a pitch that, while not a typical Oval belter, was still worth far more than the 214 Australia could muster. Cricket Tips Free The batting, shorn of the banned Steve Smith and David Warner, is still the concern although they may look to move Glenn Maxwell up the order in Cardiff after he scored 62 from number six at the Oval.
Whatever they do, they are likely to face another trial by spin. Moeen Ali and Adil Rashid took five for 79 from 20 overs between them in the first game and in the past two years, England's spinners have their best average and strike rate against Australia. Cbtf Betting Tips Morgan admits his team have specifically targeted Australia's weakness in that area and if the Cardiff pitch is low and slow, as it was in the Champions Trophy semi-final last year, Moeen, Rashid could have another field day.
The defeat at the Oval continued a horror run of form for Australia in the ODI format. They have now lost six of their last seven ODIs against England and won just two of their last 13 completed matches in all since the start of last year. Online Cricket Betting With players to return from injury and suspension, many of the current squad may not return in a year's time for the World Cup but Australia need those players currently in England to help stop the rot. Outgunned as they are, however, that will be no easy task.
When: Saturday, June 16, 2018, 11 am local time, 3.30 pm IST
Where: Sophia Gardens, Cardiff
What to expect: The pitch at Sophia Gardens has rarely been a batting paradise although it has certainly improved in recent seasons. Cricket Betting Tips Free It will probably be on the slow side on Saturday which means it could be tough going for the batsmen and should give some assistance to the slower men. The forecast is mixed with some chance of showers
