Australia 11/10 • England 8/11 Bet Now 

England have been the best team in white-ball cricket for a few years now but they have been more dominant in ODIs. Australia, after a lean patch, have bounced back with all their might and are currently the number one-ranked team in the T20Is. England are just below them with 268 ratings - a deficit of 10 units from the chart leaders.

Both line-ups look exciting and despite the absence of Jason Roy due to a shoulder injury and Ben Stokes, who is spending time with his family in New Zealand after his father was diagnosed with brain cancer, a cracker of a series is on the cards.

Tom Banton will continue to keep his opening spot alongside Jonny Bairstow, with Dawid Malan and Eoin Morgan following in the middle order. Jos Buttler walks back into the XI in place of Sam Billings.

So will Jofra Archer, who will lead the England bowling attack alongside Chris Jordan and Adil Rashid.

The tried and tested combination of David Warner and Aaron Finch will open the batting for Australia with Steve Smith at 3. Glenn Maxwell and Marcus Stoinis, who have been recalled to the squad, are likely to make the XI.

Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins and Kane Richardson form a diverse and potent pace trioka for Australia.

Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:

England - Tom Banton, Jonny Bairstow, Dawid Malan, Eoin Morgan (c), Jos Buttler (wk), Moeen Ali, Mark Wood, Tom Curran, Chris Jordan, Adil Rashid, Jofra Archer

Australia - David Warner, Aaron Finch (c), Steve Smith, Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Alex Carey (wk), Ashton Agar, Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Kane Richardson, Adam Zampa
