Let’s take a look at the strengths and weaknesses of both the sides for the 4th ODI
In form batsmen – Be it top-order or middle-order, every batsman of England is in a scintillating form. They effortlessly won the series by winning the first 3 matches and would like to continue the same with their willow in the next two.
Spinners on a roll – Few years back, no body have thought that England’s spin-attack could be a vital one for their team. Both Moeen Ali and Adil Rashid are turning things in their favour in almost every game. In the 3rd ODI as well, both of them picked up 7 wickets combined. Expect more from them in the upcoming two games!
Pacers need to keep it easy – Don’t consider this as a weakness but if England can look on it a bit, they would become a perfect side with 100% strengths. Pacers have spent at an average economy of around 6 – 6.5 which is fine but if they can keep that at around 5, they can do anything in the near future; who knows their best cricket might come during the World Cup time.
Top-order can fire – They have a decent top 5 players who can fire when in need. The likes of Marsh, Finch, Stoinis, Short, Head are commendable players who can score big with their willow. They all would like to give some good time to their country by winning the remaining 2 games.
Bowling woes – Without any doubt, Australians are repeating the same mistakes after every game. They spent a lot in the last game and even were not at their best in the first 2 matches. They have got 2 more chances to prove themselves. Can they do it?
