England v Australia 1st T20I – Team News

England have recalled Jos Buttler, Jofra Archer and Mark Wood. All three did not play in the recent T20I series against Pakistan.

Buttler’s return gives England another option at the top of the batting order in the absence of the injured Jason Roy.

The returns of Archer and Wood offer more fire to the seam attack, which will be without Lewis Gregory this time.

England Test captain Joe Root was overlooked, despite a fine performance in the T20 Blast recently.

Batsman Dawid Malan has been retained, but there is no room for left-arm seamer David Willey. Batsman James Vince has been left out again, too.

Australia named a 21-man squad for the trip, including Steve Smith, Marnus Labuschagne, David Warner and Marcus Stoinis.

Glenn Maxwell, Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins and Nathan Lyon make up a strong outfit. Batsman Josh Philippe may also get an opportunity.

England v Australia 1st T20I – Betting Tips and Prediction

We highlight the best value bets on offer and make our selections to look out for before the action gets underway.

These include who we think the best batsman and bowlers will be for the first contest.

Pick Australia to Have the Highest Opening Partnership

It’s probably Aaron Finch and David Warner v Jonny Bairstow and Tom Banton for this one. Jos Buttler might get in there ahead of Bairstow.

Whatever the combination of openers, we’ll likely see them go big or get out quickly – they’re those type of players.

England tend to lose an opener early, while Finch and Warner are looking good for an extended stay here. You could almost double your money by betting on Australia to have the highest opening partnership at 1.9 with Betway.

Bet on an Accumulator Outcome for All-Round Ali

Moeen Ali performed well in the recent final T20I against Pakistan. He is one of England’s better hitters in the middle-order and can take crucial wickets with his spin.

He is also one of their strongest fielders, so is placed in strategic catching positions, predominantly on the off-side.

We are big fans of 22Bets’ accumulator outcomes – and for this one they have Ali priced at 13.0 to hit a six, take a wicket and a catch. Now that’s good value.

Pick Wood to be the Outright Star in Southampton

Mark Wood has been biding his time in the T20 Blast. He’s back in national colours now and the fast bowler’s outright pace could really unsettle Australia.

Wood has ‘wow’ factor and is offered at long odds of 21.0 to be the man of the match with 10Cric. He might prove costly runs-wise, but that could be offset by plenty of wickets.

He has taken at least one wicket in each of his eight T20Is – and two or more on five of those occasions.
