    England [342/8] beat Australia [304] by 38 runs in 2nd ODI to take 2-0 series lead

    England v Australia
    Sophia Gardens, Cardiff
    2nd ODI
    Saturday 16 June, 10am GMT, 11:00am local

    A new-look Australia had their moments in the first one-day international, but it's England who head into the Cardiff clash with a 1-0 lead.

    Australia’s new beginning got off to a largely poor start, in fact, with their batsmen collapsing to 90/5 at The Oval. Glenn Maxwell and Ashton Agar added 84 thereafter to help boost the total to 214, but despite their bowlers putting up a fight, England got to a three-wicket win quite comfortably.

    The England innings brought to light what Australia were missing, particularly in the absence of Steve Smith. Joe Root and Eoin Morgan put on a 115-run stand for the fourth wicket, converting defence into attack in a stand that stemmed the rot after England were reduced to 33/3.

    Nothing of the sort was evident in the Australia innings, and that steel is something they will hope to add to their repertoire in the second ODI.

    Ricky Ponting, assisting head coach Justin Langer for the tour, called on the Australian batsmen to be more responsible, saying, “It highlighted again the importance of our top-order batsman taking responsibility and getting some big runs. These players need to be hard on themselves and work out how they can improve on a daily basis.”

    There is talk that Australia could consider bringing in an extra batsman to bolster things, with one of D’Arcy Short or Alex Carey likely to step in. How that will affect the balance of the side – their bowling attack is settled and could do without the tampering – remains to be seen.

    That said, Australia need to do something. England, the No.1-ranked ODI side, seem to have their mojo back after that dispiriting loss to Scotland on Sunday.

    And, over the last couple of years, it’s become increasingly evident that the England ODI side don’t let a lead slip without a fight.

    Key players

    Jason Roy (England): The opener’s poor form continues. It’s been 10 ODIs since he hammered that career-best 180 in Melbourne, and he is yet to reach 50 since then. He was dismissed for nought at The Oval as Billy Stanlake went through him, and on Sunday against Scotland, he failed to build on a 32-ball 34, even as Jonny Bairstow went berserk at the other end. More is expected from him.

    Billy Stanlake (Australia): After Australia’s batting crumbled, their attack kept them in the game. Stanlake was one of the big reasons they did that – the lanky paceman had Roy dismissed first up, and followed it up with the wicket of Root to break an important partnership in the first ODI. It amounted to nothing, yes, but Australia will hope for a repeat performance from the big man.

    Conditions

    Scattered showers are expected over the weekend in Cardiff. Expect the pace bowlers to rule the roost once again in friendly conditions.

    England looking set for 300+ at the moment as they reach 160/2 * (25/50 ov); Jason Roy 75* and Joe Root 16* in no mood for charity as they push the scoring rate against Australia after England were put into bat in the 2nd ODI #ENGvAUS

    No fun watching ODI series where there's a mediocre, injury hit bowling attack getting beaten up by the opposition.

    All one way traffic.

    Wow, Jos Buttler has got to be one of the top limited overs batsmen in the world at the moment. Just keeps delivering.

    Didn't watch the innings.
    Why buttler didn't reach to century.
    Whether Australia bowled that well against him or buttler was slogging too much like that 444 match against pak were he didn't reach to 100.

    Hopefully there are no more international matches in Cardiff for a while. A Saturday ODI that was obviously nowhere close to selling out, wherein cheers and support for England were muted and (worse) respect / applause for quality instances of batting and bowling from the opposition were completely ignored. Embarrassing.
