Top 3 Players to watch out for England in the one-day series vs Australia

England comfortably brushed aside Australia in the three-match T20I series played at Old Trafford Cricket Stadium in Manchester. Eoin Morgan-led unit will be looking to continue their dominance in white-ball cricket when they lock horns against Australia in the upcoming three-match one-day series.

The likes of Jos Buttler, Adil Rashid, Mark Wood and Jofra Archer performed exceedingly well for the side during the three-match T20I series. England have picked their full-strength squad for the coming series. Joe Root and Chris Woakes will make their return to the one-day side for this three-match series.

Left-arm medium pacer Sam Curran is another useful player included in the limited-overs squad for the upcoming series against Australia.

Let’s look at the three players who can help England win the upcoming one-day series against Australia.

Eoin Morgan

England Skipper Eoin Morgan has shown excellent form in white-ball cricket this home summer. Left-hander has looked fluent at the crease and decided to take on the bowlers from the start. Morgan has been a bankable performer for the side in one-day internationals. He along with Jos Buttler are the best player of spin the in playing XI.

The 33-year old will be keen to make notable contributions with the bat in this one-day series against Australia. Despite not doing much with the bat in the recently concluded T20I series, Morgan will be keen to make strong statement with the bat in this one-day series.

Since May 2019, Eoin Morgan has accumulated 697 runs in 21 one-day matches at an average of 49.78 with a strike rate of 113.14. He has also scored two centuries and three half-centuries during this period.

Jos Buttler

Jos Buttler is currently the best finisher in limited-overs cricket at the moment. With retirement of MS Dhoni, Buttler is certainly the player who can destroy bowling attacks in the final 10 to 15 overs of the innings.

Given his superlative performances in one-day internationals, Buttler will be looking to make an impact with the bat in this one-day series. Recently, Buttler was instrumental in helping England win the T20I series. He accumulated 121 runs in 2 innings at a strike rate of 145.78. He will be looking to continue his rich vein of form with the bat in the one-day series.

Since May 2019, Buttler scored 456 runs in 15 one-day matches at an average of 41.45 with two centuries and two half- centuries to his name.

The team management will be hoping that Buttler will continue his excellent form with the bat in the three-match one-day series.

Adil Rashid

The 32-year old will be looking to make an impact with the ball for England in the upcoming one-day series against Australia. He struggled to make an impact with the bat in the T20I series against Pakistan earlier this month. He worked on technical issues and came back strongly against Australia in the three-match T20I series.

Leg-spinner finished the T20I series as the leading wicket-taker for England with 6 scalps to his name. England will be relieved that Rashid has found form with the ball in hand in the recently concluded series.

He will be looking to make amends for poor record in white-ball cricket since 2019 Cricket World Cup. Since May 2019, Rashid claimed 22 wickets in 19 ODI matches at an average of 40.22 with an economy rate of 5.60.
