When and where:
After a top order failure and 3 wickets loss in the first of the 5 matches series between the rivals England and Australia, the visitors would be looking to avenge the loss when they face opposition at Sophia Gardens, Cardiff for the second ODI tomorrow (June-16). Both the teams will lock horns at 03:30 PM IST or 11:00 AM Local.
Although the first encounter was a low-score affair, it was enthralling throughout. Both the teams suffered the failure of the top order. While Australia was crawling at 90/5 at one time, England too didn’t have an ideal start. They were also looking handicapped at 38/3 before Joe Root and Eoin Morgan came to rescue.
So, let’s see what comes out in Cardiff tomorrow!
The wicket at Sophia Gardens in Cardiff is favorable for batting. The pitch has given assistance to batters in Royal London One Day Cup and is expected to do the same tomorrow.

While England is likely to stick to the same playing 11, Billy Stanlake is a doubtful starter for Australia. Billy is in doubt with a laceration on his big toe. Management might rope in Jhye Richardson as a replacement in the playing 11.
D Arcy Short might also get to play if the management decides to bring in an extra batsman.
