England v Australia 2nd ODI betting tips & prediction
Welcome to our England v Australia betting tips, prediction & odds update for the second one-dayer at Old Trafford on Sunday, September 13.
Australian went 1-0 up in the series with a tight win in the first match, and this second match is to be played on the same strip and under day/night conditions.
England surprisingly elected to bowl first in the ODI opener and their defeat means the past seven ODIs at Old Trafford have been won by the team batting first. The toss will be important as always, but that stat also means the side batting second is certainly due.
England produced a disappointing batting performance with only century-maker Sam Billings and opener Jonny Bairstow (84) offering any real resistance as the metronomic Josh Hazlewood made early inroads into the England top order.
The home team is unlikely to make too many changes for the second match but they need something from one or both of opener Jason Roy and key player Joe Root, who both look underdone.
Australia may not risk opening bowler Mitchell Starc, who suffered a tweak to his upper leg while fielding on Friday. If Starc is ruled out, his likely replacement is Kane Richardson.
Former Australian captain and gun batsman Steve Smith missed the first match with concussion after being struck in the nets. He has passed his concussion protocols but the Australians may take a conservative approach given his woes of the Ashes tour. If he does play, however, Marcus Stoinis, who fought hard for 43 batting at first drop on Friday, could be the man to make way.

England v Australia tips – 2nd ODI
Here are our best bets for the 2nd one-day international between England and Australia at Old Trafford:
Aaron Finch man of the match at $10
Finch has looked on the cusp of producing a big knock in the T20s and first ODI, and he is a player who regularly goes on with the job once he gets a decent start. While his opening partner David Warner has been shaky against the pace bowling early in English conditions, Finch looks a lot more solid. If he produces a ton, Australia will be well on their way to winning this match and taking a 2-0 lead in the series.
Adil Rashid leading England wicket-taker
We have loaded up on the leggie twice and he delivered once during the T20 series, and he could get more assistance than he did on Friday with this pitch a little more worn. Rashid still chimed in with the wickets of Marnus Labuschagne and Alex Carey in the first match. He is just and out-and-out start in the short forms of the game.
England v Australia prediction 13/9/2020
England just don’t have the same aura about them as they carried last northern summer when they won the ODI World Cup. A key part of that is the absence of Ben Stokes, without whom they would likely not have even reached the final of the World Cup. And also, the bowling line-up is yet to find its range. There is very little between these sides, so we have to lean towards the outsiders again in Australia, particularly if Smith is fit to play. He is head and shoulders above his teammates as a batsman in English conditions. Our final England v Australia prediction? Australia by 10 runs/four wickets.
