England were crowned the T20 champions after beating India in the final of the ICC World T20 held in Australia, giving them the right to call themselves the world’s best in the shortest format of the game.
Since then, England have been gearing up for the upcoming three-match ODI series against Australia, which is set to start on Wednesday, 25th March in Melbourne.
It was a tightly contested tournament but in the end, England managed to beat the reigning champions India in their own backyard. Unfazed by the pressure, Eoin Morgan and his men performed brilliantly to win their first ever ICC T20 championship.
The win has boosted confidence for the English side and they will be looking to carry that momentum into the upcoming series against the Australians. England have a good-record in ODI cricket and are always a tough nut to crack for the Aussies.
The England squad that has reached Australia is packed with talent, including the likes of Joe Root, Moeen Ali and Adil Rashid. Ben Stokes, who was instrumental in the T20 triumph, is likely to miss the ODI series due to injury.
The series will be a great test for both teams as they prepare for next year’s ICC World Cup in England. For the English side, the series provides the perfect opportunity to test their batting, bowling and fielding skills against the world’s premier side.
The ODI series between England and Australia is expected to be a great contest and both sides will be looking to grab the initiative. Who will come out on top? We will have to wait and see who will be crowned victorious when the series finishes on April 1.
