England will look to continue their winning momentum when they take on Australia in the second ODI match at the Sophia Gardens in Cardiff on Saturday.

Jason Roy's poor form is a concern for England as the opener hasn't scored a fifty-plus score since his 180 against Australia earlier this year and in the bowling department, England has been doing well even without Chris Woakes and Ben Stokes.

On the other hand, a depleted Australian side needs to win this game to stay alive in this series. In the first game, it was batting that let down them as they could score only 214 runs on a good batting track, though bowlers put up a great fight in that low scoring game and would love to repeat that performance again to secure a win.

England leads in the series by 1-0 after a 3 wickets victory in the first match at The Oval.
