Chris Lynn and Glenn Maxwell both scored in 40s to take their team home in the opening game against New Zealand. Once again, it will be up to the destructive Lynn and Warner to provide Australia a flying start. While Billy Stanlake (three wickets) ran through the Kiwi top-order, Andrew Tye closed out the innings with a four-wicket haul. Both these fast bowlers will pose the main threats for England.
Australia Predicted Playing 11
- David Warner (c), Kane Richardson, Glenn Maxwell, Chris Lynn, Ashton Agar, Adam Zampa, Marcus Stoinis, Alex Carey (wk), Billy Stanlake, Andrew Tye, D’Arcy Short/Aaron Finch
The team will look to the likes of Alex Hales, Eoin Morgan and Jos Buttler to fire with the bat. These three are amongst the leading run-getters for England in T20 internationals and it will be crucial that at least two of them go on to get the big runs. Tom Curran had an impressive ODI series and he will be leading the pace attack along with Mark Wood. Adil Rashid will be the key when it comes to spin.
England Predicted Playing 11
- Eoin Morgan (c), Alex Hales, Jason Roy/James Vince, Dawid Malan, Sam Billings, Jos Buttler (wk), Adil Rashid, Liam Dawson, Tom Curran, Mark Wood, David Willey/Liam Plunkett

Australia vs England 2nd T20 Prediction
Australia recorded a convincing victory against New Zealand and will take plenty of confidence into the next game. But they will be well aware of the fact that they had been outclassed by England in the ODI series not too long ago. The hosts are missing key members in Starc, Smith, Cummins and Hazlewood while Finch is still in doubt for this match. Moreover, the Aussies have not won consecutive games in T20 format since September 2016. England now seem to be well familiar with the conditions and we feel they stand a better chance of winning this contest.
