Australia tour of England 2020 has kicked off and the first T20 match between ENG vs AUS is already underway as England is batting first after Australia won the toss earlier in the day. Three t20 matches will be played in this exciting series and we will get a lot of entertainment when these arch rivals will face each other in this short format of the game.
England have made three changes in the playing XI that played in the final T20I against Pakistan recently a few days back. Jos Buttler, Jofra Archer and Mark Wood are back in the side replacing Sam Billings, Lewis Gregory and Saqib Mahmood. Australia on the other hand are going with two regular spinners which are Adam Zampa and Ashton Agar also Marcus Stoinis is playing ahead of Mitch Marsh which is quite an interesting choice.
England Playing XI – Jonny Bairstow, Jos Buttler(w), Dawid Malan, Tom Banton, Eoin Morgan(c), Moeen Ali, Chris Jordan, Tom Curran, Jofra Archer, Mark Wood, Adil Rashid
Australia Playing XI – Aaron Finch(c), David Warner, Steven Smith, Glenn Maxwell, Alex Carey(w), Marcus Stoinis, Ashton Agar, Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Kane Richardson, Adam Zampa
ENG vs AUS 1st T20 Match 4 Sept 2020 Score Updates
England – 162/7 – 20 Overs
Australia – 160/6 – 20 Overs
England won the match by 2 runs
As far as our prediction for this match is concerned we are expecting a tough fight between both these sides. Both England and Australia are quite well balanced teams but according to us the spinners will play a crucial role in the first t20 and Aussies have a slight edge in that department so we are predicting a Australia win in the first T20 against England.
