Cricket

Australia’s choice boss Trevor Hohns is poised to reassess the make-up of the facet for Saturday’s second ODI in opposition to England in Cardiff.

Tim Paine’s staff slipped to a three-wicket defeat at The Oval within the series-opener after one other poor batting show that noticed the vacationers bundled out for simply 214.

It was Australia’s lowest all-out complete in opposition to England when batting first after profitable the toss and was by no means going to be sufficient to win the sport.

Regardless of this, Eoin Morgan’s facet made exhausting work of the chase as a result of some fantastic bowling from an inexperienced assault.

The staff chosen for the Oval contained 4 frontline pacemen in debutant Michael Neser, Queensland tearaway Billy Stanlake, Andrew Tye and Kane Richardson.

All 4 carried out admirably – Stanlake and Tye particularly – with the wily West Australian mixing up his deliveries to good impact to seize two wickets.

“I believe he (Tye) had 22 (variations) eventually rely, however … all of them have quite a few good slower balls and quite a few good abilities they’ll name on,” Paine stated.

“We’re actually proud of that assault we’re placing collectively and while you have a look at Mitchell Starc and (Josh) Hazlewood and (Pat) Cummins, it is an thrilling group of quick bowlers.”

Regardless of doing nicely with the ball, the quartet added simply 26 runs between them with the bat for the final 4 wickets.

With the highest order failing to fireside, Australia’s batting line-up appeared decidedly susceptible with solely Glenn Maxwell (62) and Ashton Agar (40) making significant contributions.

Paine moved himself up forward of Maxwell to No.5 however was out on 12 taking part in a poorly executed reverse-sweep.

The skipper hinted that it might be a transfer the staff sticks with within the Welsh capital if the highest order fails to fireside as soon as once more.

“We simply wished to carry Maxy again a bit,” Paine stated.

“We predict he finishes the innings rather well and after we misplaced these early wickets we determined to place me up and try to maintain Maxy again then let him exit and play his pure recreation.”

Ought to Hohns determine to bolster the batting, dashing opener D’Arcy Quick or Alex Carey might come into the combination in Cardiff.

Richardson might be the person to overlook out with Neser, who took two wickets at The Oval, being a stronger batsman.
