England and Australia will square off in a limited-overs leg from the 4th September. The series consists of three ODIs and three T20Is before a handful of cricketers travel to the UAE to participate in the IPL. While the Englishmen resumed international cricket in July, it would be the first time since March that Australians play top-level cricket. All games would also be contested behind closed doors.

It would also be the first meeting between England and Australia in white-ball cricket since the 2019 World Cup semi-final in Edgbaston where the hosts eliminated the defending champions. Unlike their white-ball tour in 2018, Australia have come with a full-strength team, including the likes of David Warner, Steve Smith, Mitchell Starc, and Pat Cummins.

Aaron Finch has replaced Tim Paine, under whom the tourists ended up winless two years ago in ODIs. They have also played a few practice games to fine-tune their skills and assess their playing combinations.

The English selectors have also recalled their regular white-ball picks in Jos Buttler, Joe Root, and Jofra Archer after fringe players participated against Ireland and Pakistan. On the other hand, Ben Stokes remains on the sidelines due to personal reasons.

The Englishmen could well face the most formidable challenge of their home season so far as their arch-rivals are one of the best teams in the world. Should Eoin Morgan’s team beat Aaron Finch’s men in the T20I series, they should capture the spot in the rankings. All in all, it promises to be a mouth-watering contest.
