England Vs Australia 2nd Twenty20 1 Sep Live

Ravi BoparaThat the English side was on the back-foot in the first T20I at Manchester can be established without too much doubt. That the rain-gods saved the English side from a major embarrassment can also be seen very evidently. However, the format of the game is such, that England will know that they will go into the game on even keel, with an opportunity to upset the Aussie applecart.

The teams had been changed around in both the camps for the first game, what with new faces having sprung in the sides. However, it was evident that the Aussies wanted to win the game more desperately than their English counterparts, who looked to be a bit relaxed after their Ashes triumph. However, it does look that given the shock and awe that the English side would have received in the first game, they will look to bounce back in the second match and get going with a more aggressive approach.

For starters, one is not sure whether Ravi Bopara is in the right frame of mind, let alone form to be playing international cricket for now. Another single-digit score in the first T20I would have done his chances no good, and the only reason he may survive an axe is that at the other end, there is another inexperienced player in the form of Joe Denly - who incidentally got a duck in the first game - at the other end. But, time is fast running out for Ravi Bopara.

Amongst the bowlers, the track looks good for the quick bowlers, and if the English could get in someone like Tim Bresnan, who would be able to extract the bounce off a good length, it could augur well for the English.

The Aussies were a charged up lot, as was evident after Mitchell Johnson picked up the wicket of Bopara. At the other end, was another was another bowler, who, if fit, could be the difference between the two teams through the rest of the tour. Brett Lee had had to watch the action from the sidelines of the balcony and that would have pained him immensely enough. He will look to get the latent energy out during the limited version, and if the track in the first game is anything to go by, then the batsmen beware!

Cameron White's finally coming to form after persistence from the selectors, and Dave Warner's good start will mean that the English bowling can be dominated and one gets the sense that the pair will be the one to look out for again. Shane Watson failure notwithstanding, he will look to try and get his form in the 2008 version of the IPL going for him in the series and could be at his dangerous best while batting at the top.

To me, it looks that Australia should win the game, but then, favourites is not usually a word one associates with them in the T20s!
