After a remarkable 3rd ODI between England and Australia, the hosts are now looking for a whitewash from here. Australians are playing their worst cricket at the moment because of the lack of experienced players in their squad. Morgan & Co. set a world record in the previous match by hitting an unbelievable score of 481 in their 50 overs. The Men in Yellow lost by a huge margin of 242 runs. Now, they can only play for their pride; a whitewash from here can put this team in an extreme trouble just ahead of the 2019 World Cup next.
Best economical pick – No longer is Jason Roy a high-class souped-up pinch-hitter, now he has stopped trying to hit the ball too hard, but a high-class opening batsman, a fitting partner for Bairstow who gives the impression he could hit every ball to or over the boundary. Roy smashed 82 runs off 61 balls before got run out in the 3rd ODI.
Top captains & vice captains – Jonny Bairstow's scores in his last six ODI outings make for astonishing reading. After rounding off the New Zealand series with 104 and 138, the dynamic right-hander smashed 105 in the one-off match against Scotland. Considering his high returns, even decent scores of 28 and 42 appear as aberrations at the start of the ongoing Australian affair. Laced with15 boundaries and 5 sixes, Bairstow took advantage of the docile Trent Bridge track by hammering 139 from just 92 balls. Eoin Morgan hit England's fastest half-century in ODI history in the 3rd ODI by getting it done in 21 deliveries. The previous best was by England's hard hitter Jos Buttler. He also became England's all-time leading run-getter in ODI history. In achieving this, Morgan passed by Ian Bell who had scored 5416 runs.
Smart pick – Joe Root scored a fifty in the first match but hasn’t had much to do in the last two encounters. In Nottingham, he was pushed down the order for the big hitters to come in and carry on the good work by the top order. In a lineup, powered with big-hitters, His role will be vital provided his team loses a few early wickets and is pushed on the back foot.
Cautious Pick – Andrew Tye became just the second Australian bowler to concede 100 runs in a one-day international during Tuesday night’s record-breaking defeat to England. Tye registered figures of 0-100 off nine overs in Trent Bridge, becoming the first Australian to leak 100 runs since Mick Lewis in 2006 against South Africa. Tye is only the 11th bowler to have ever conceded 100 runs in an ODI.
My XI – Jonny Bairstow (Captain), Eoin Morgan (Vice-Captain), Jason Roy, Joe Root, Alex Hales, Billy Stanlake, Adil Rashid, Jhye Richardson, Moeen Ali, Shaun Marsh, Ashton Agar
