Australia are slipping further, this would be another series in international cricket which they cannot win. The second of the two T20s will be played at MCG under lights on Friday.

Australia began their new era under Cameron White as captain after Michael Clarke had quite. It got off a disappointing start. Australia were banking heavily on the quicks Brett Lee and Shaun Tait but they failed to deliver.

Going into the second game, Australia would hope for a better show from their batsmen who failed to keep going on a placid pitch last time around. Lack of a quality spinner means extra burden on Steve O'Keefe and Steven Smith. Brett Lee might go out of favor of selectors after a poor show. It was the fielding that led to Australia's downfall, loose efforts in the field, letting easy boundaries go by and missing direct hits.

It all has to improve if Australia are to level the series 1-1 decisively. It wasn't a crushing defeat like the Ashes, Australia almost won it after Englishmen threw their wickets way. Australia would like to have better bowling and batting starts on January 14. It was in the early stages of both innings when Australians struggled most.

Australia have lost all of their last five T20s.

England almost threw it away with careless batting in the opening T20, but the world champions recovered. The Ashes is won but the intent is there for England under Paul Collingwood. England are missing their frontline seamers but Ajmal Shahzad, Tim Bresnan and Chris Woakes - the hero in the last game have done a decent job so far.

They have bowled tight lines which contained the Aussie batsmen even on a flat track. England have more concerns in batting heading into the second ODI. England got off to a creamy start but due to lack of planning or complacency kept losing wickets regularly. Captain Paul Collingwood's dodgy form is also a worry for England.

England however will go out all guns blazing as they are not under any sort of pressure now. Senior players have been rested and youngsters would want to grab the chance by the throat at MCG.

England have won all of their last five T20s.
