England vs Australia 2nd ODI Highlights – Sep 13, 2020
“It’s the same wicket as the other day,” Morgan says. “It might potentially get a little bit worse this afternoon. It probably didn’t spin as much as we thought it was going to [on Friday] but if you hit the right area, there’s a bit on offer.” The Currans are in for Wood [rested, didn’t pull up well] and Moeen [tactical decision].
“We’d have batted first on this wicket, it being a used wicket,” says Finch. “We’ve gone with the same team. Starc is fine, he’s ready to go. The way we fought back against the spin was really impressive and, in the first ten overs we bowled nicely.” No Smith after all – no mention of his absence at the toss. We’ll bring you any news on that as we get it.
