"The reason this series is in is because of the 2015 World Cup," Cook said. "We really want to have some warm-ups in Australia to get used to those conditions just before that World Cup. That makes sense for our preparation then, so obviously as a reciprocal thing they have to come here. As players we don't mind. It's going to be a brilliant, hopefully, ten days.

It's going to be a good series, I'm really looking forward to it. I think there's no clear favorites, but considering England is playing at home they might have slight advantage.

It's a tough decision to get six bowlers down to three," Michael Clarke says before confirming it's Cummins, Lee and McKay as the fast men.

Interesting combination; Pattinson could play he had a season in County:sigh:

Pommies are under pressure already. Good weather for Pace bowlers to have some purchase. Batters have to bat really hard on this pitch.

After this 5 match odi series, they will play 5 test in July/Aug. Then 3 T20 and then 5 ODI again:smh:

is it just me or has this game been really boring? maybe its the playing style of cook and trott?, not saying it isn't effective batting.

Pommies are struggling to post a challenging score. They should have been more aggressive, anything less than 270 would be tough to defend.

KKR mate against each other !

Lee vs Morgan !

2 sixes of Lee's over.

Pommie badly need another 25/30 runs in the last 3 overs.

morgan is tearing england apart now, great power hitting from a player who was benched for the whole kkr season, i am a kiwi, but morgan(and ofcourse shakib) should have been playing ahead of mcculum(mcculum was just not in good form!)

another 10/15 runs, Aussie will have to run for their money.

272/5 (50) !

I would say, a challenging score. It was very tough condition at the start but England (Morgan, Trott, Kieswetter) has batted well to cross 270 mark.

Aussie should score those runs, its a perfect batting condition now.

Australia is 9 down but their last 2 batsmen are trying their heart out to get their and main thing about them is that they know how to stay in the crease! If it was our team, pfft if we'r 5 down then all of them will give up thinking the match is over!

July 1, 2012, 06:55 AM
Clarkey gone early as well :(, I dont think Australia deserve it's rank atm, They are struggling in 2nd ODI also..
So far 108/3 here

cricheart

Well somehow Ausies made 250 up. It was very hard earned for them but still looks 20-25 runs behind par for against team like England.

138/2 27th over
Progress has become smooth again for England, knocking it around and picking off boundaries when they can, no real control for Australia. -CI

England about to go up 2-0 in the series. If they whitewash Australia, they'll get the top ranking.

cricheart
July 1, 2012, 01:13 PM
Nicely convincing victory again by the English. Middle order Bopara-Morgan partnership is a class ODI strenght for them. I really forgot when they lost their last ODI. Whitewash seems very practical thinking here.

England seems to be flying high in confidence. They have a great group of Test quality pace bowlers now to choose from for all formats which makes all the difference. The test bowlers really know how to get people out and that's what the English bowling group have done in this series (all of them sharing wickets amongst themselves)and never allowed Australia to gather any sort of momentum.

The English Batting performance was a surprise for me. Their batting order doesn't look intimidating at all and yet they were able to easily put on good totals and beat the Aussies in two consecutive games. Ian Bell might not be as dazzling as Kevin Petersen but he seems to be in the form of his life.

I always thought the guys who can play Test cricket well will certainly, at least 80% will also play ODI well; as you mentioned some of them might not be dazzling but very very effective. Jonathan Trott, Amla, Rahul Dravid all these guys were under hammer of criticize from all over that they are only suited for Tests before even they started their ODI careers but they proved many wrong. Proven performers in Test arena seems to have the best temperament to play ODIs. They can adjust to match situations very well.
Now that England has started to make effect on ODIs after so many years because their line up is full of proven Test players; won't be surprising if they go on to make no. 1 ODI side as well

The real contest will be when South Africa tour England with their full strength side. It will be a good series because we will get to see two of the world's best bowling units go at each other under helpful conditions for bowlers.

Yeah and England will be under pressure against SA to show that they really belong to no 1 in Test; if they lose, everyone outside England will jump all over to say how hyped they are esp when all English ex cricketers are all praising this English side as one of the best. On the other hand, SA will be relatively free of such pressure and they have the attack to rattle England top order with Steyn, Morne Morkel, Philander, Imran Tahir and Kallis to cheap in. I honestly feel England is lacking a genuine all rounder as they had in Freddie Flintoff

Yeah... it's a difficult one to choose a winner out of these two sides. England certainly has the edge in spin bowling with Swan and also with their late order batting (Prior, Swann, Broad, Bresnan). I haven't seen much of Imran Tahir and if he is not on the money from the get go then he could very well suffer the fate of Narine against the England top order.

South Africa's pace reserves is also a worry in my opinion. While England could switch any of their pacer attack with a quality pacer... I don't think SA has the same level of quality beyond Steyn, Morkel and Philander. It will be interesting to see how Philander does on this tour because He record in terms of wickets, strike rate and average so far is simply astonishing. He could very well tilt things in SA's favor.

Australian cricket is in shambles. A huge gulf in ability between those that have just left and those taking their places.

Even the basics have gone...dropping catches in the field, and the running, wow, it's like they've hired Inzi to be the running coach :lol:

Yep, the decline is shocking to be honest. They still have the great first class structure that produced the previous legends so I wonder what is going wrong in the manufacturing process

I read an article a month or so back(while sitting at the airport) that Cricket Australia were looking at what the ECB was doing, and copying their model for the 1st class structure.

Oh how the mighty have fallen...Australia looking to emulate the English

Wow too many people are overeacting. Im predicting the Aussies to whitewash the Pommies in this years Ashes. Aussies are not in shambles. They dont suck. It just didnt work for them this series and its understandable. England are a solid team at home and thats the only place where they play their best cricket. Relatively new batting lineup for the Aussies so they are in a stage of experimenting but i question the inclusion of George Bailey when their is Cameron White on the wings and even the talented Callum Ferguson. Or the big one. Ponting!

If Australia cant find a suitable no. 3 batsmen then i would move Watson to no. 3 and put Aaron Finch and Warner to open the batting. Finch is an aggressive batsmen and he is the goods to be a regular international cricketer. I have high hopes for this kid. But i guess the team has to persist with Peter Forrest but he is a slow scorer.

F6_Turbo
July 11, 2012, 03:26 AM
A 'shambles' compared to the standards they've set themselves over the last 15 years. They haven't gone on some huge losing streak(they smashed India at home), but they don't have the same air of invincibility around them, and that batting looks poor.

The spin bowlers are rubbish, pacers on the other hand look promising(if a bit injury prone atm, but they're young so that's to be expected).
