After having lost the opening game of the three-match series, the England National Cricket Team will take on Australia in the second ODI of the series on Sunday at the Emirates Old Trafford in Manchester. The first game seemed a walk in the park for the visitors as they looked dominant enough throughout the match and sealed the tie in an emphatic manner by 19 runs.
England’s bowling proved to be disastrous in the first ODI even after having claimed the first couple of wickets early on. Sam Billings and Jonny Bairstow showed great fight chasing a steep total. However, their efforts went in vain as the visitors sealed the win and put themselves in a commanding position in the series, with a couple of games left in the series.
