England hammered Australia to clinch the ODI series at Trent Bridge. The hosts recorded the highest ever score in One Day Internationals and later bundled the visitors inflicting the heaviest runs-margin loss on Australia. Tim Paine described it as “the hardest day of his life.” It is difficult to tell if Australia have it in them to get over it.
Let’s take a look at the players who can deliver for their respective teams in tomorrow’s fixture at Chester-le-Street.
Jonny Bairstow is in ominous form, racking 4 centuries in last 6 ODI outings. Besides Bairstow, Alex Hales and Jason Roy are among others who can make the most of their form. With the ball, Adil Rashid and Liam Plunkett can be backed to pick a handful of wickets.
The visitors will rely on the likes of Shaun Marsh, Aaron Finch and AJ Tye to compete with the in-form English side.
