The Big Picture
After having faced the ignominy of a 0-5 drubbing at the hands of ENG, a beleaguered Australian unit will take on England in a bid to salvage lost pride, as they aim to end what has been a forgetful tour for ’em on a high.
The last time Australia played a T20I, they were basked in the glory of winning the Trans-Tasman T20I tri-series earlier this year, spearheaded by a certain David Warner. But off-course a lot of water has flown under the bridge since then. David Warner, who played a pivotal part in them winning that series is serving a 12-month ban following the ball-tampering scandal at Newlands in March. Aaron Finch will now lead the Aussie side and will hope for a complete performance from his 2nd rank placed side, something which they were unable to do in the recently concluded ODI series.
Their opponents in England are at an all-time high on confidence, having inflicted first ever whitewash over their perennial rivals, and would be looking to continue with the winning momentum in the shortest format of the game, a format where they have proceeded to lose four of their last five fixtures against Australia.
