England ruthlessly hammered Australia 5-0 in the ODI series and now look to continue the juggernaut in the one-off Twenty 20 International. The English side would look to improve their reputation in the shortest format where they are not rated highly.
In the shortest format, the hosts suffered back-to-back losses against Australia in February and would come out to avenge it. Also, they have a good chance to catch up with Pakistan, Australia, India and New Zealand on the rankings tally.
Australia have enjoyed an excellent run in the T20 Internationals, securing nine wins from 12 games in the previous two years. However, the touring Aussies would be low on confidence after the drubbing in the ODIs. They would like to grab the redemption opportunity and end the tour on a high.
Ahead of the T20, Eoin Morgan pointed out that their opponents would be under pressure to perform and would not have good memories to come back next year for the World Cup.
The Australian skipper in the shortest format, Aaron Finch dismissed that ODI thrashing would not leave them with any mental scars and suggested a new format is a chance to start again.
