England are set to take on Australia in the second Twenty20 International at Chester-le-Street on Saturday.
Australia are coming into the match after winning the first encounter of the series, largely thanks to Aaron Finch’s record-breaking innings of 156. Finch’s recorded the second-highest century, most sixes and the highest individual score during the course of his innings.
Australia’s barren run in international cricket which lasted for 200 days came to an end thanks to Finch’s record-breaking feat and the visitors will look to draw confidence from that and clinch the two-match T20I series against England. Meanwhile, the hosts, who gave a good account of themselves despite ending up on the losing side, will be eager to get back to winning ways.
England: Alex Hales, Michael Lumb, Luke Wright, Eoin Morgan, Joe Root, Ravi Bopara, Jos Buttler (wk), Stuart Broad (c), Steven Finn, Danny Briggs, Jade Dernbach.
Australia: David Warner, Shane Watson, Aaron Finch, George Bailey (c), Shaun Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, Matthew Wade (wk), James Faulkner, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Mitchell Johnson, Fawad Ahmed.
