The England National Cricket Team is all set to take on Australia in a three-match T20I series from Friday. The first game of the three-match series will take place on Friday at the Rose Bowl Stadium in Southampton. England recently drew a three-match T200I series against Pakistan as they failed to win the final T20I of the three-match series. The first game of the series was washed out due to rain.
Australia, on the other hand, will be out on the field after a long while as the coronavirus pandemic brought the entire world to a standstill. The Australian team was last seen in action against New Zealand, earlier this year in March. The series had to be compromised in between as due to COVID-19.
