England tour of Australia and New Zealand 2nd ODI (D/N) Highlights
Warner indicated that Australia were hoping for a surface more suited to their skills in Brisbane after the “uneven”, grassy offering served up at the MCG. Pace and true bounce are only likely to aid England’s ball-strikers, although, over the last five years, the Gabba has actually been the slowest-scoring of Australia’s main grounds. The forecast for Friday is hot and humid, without interruption. England have little reason to change the XI from Melbourne, although David Willey or Tom Curran could come into contention if they wanted to add to their bowling options. Hazlewood’s illness and the absence of Cummins means Australia only have 13 fit players, including Carey, to select from. Richardson has played just eight List A games but is capable of pushing the speed gun above 145kph and has international experience, having made his T20 debut last year after impressing in the Big Bash.
