Sep 16, 2013
England are set to face Australia in the fifth and final One-Day International (ODI) at the Rose Bowl on Monday.
England leveled the series 1-1 after winning the fourth ODI at Cardiff despite Clint McKay’s hat-trick. The pacer is however confident that Australia will win the decider at Southampton.
On the other hand, the hosts feel that the winning momentum is with them.
England skipper Eoin Morgan said, “We can go into that match with real confidence and the feeling that we have a chance to win the series, and we must grab it with both hands,” said Morgan.
“If we win the fifth game then it will have been a very successful summer not just for the Ashes team but also the limited overs side. So it is a big match for us. We have so much potential and ability in this ODI squad. It’s a very young squad which just needs time to develop and really show its skills.
Australia: Aaron Finch, Phil Hughes, Shane Watson, Michael Clarke (c), George Bailey, Adam Voges, Matthew Wade (wk), James Faulkner, Mitchell Johnson, Fawad Ahmed, Clint McKay.
England: Michael Carberry, Kevin Pietersen, Jonathan Trott, Eoin Morgan (c), Ravi Bopara, Jos Buttler (wk), Ben Stokes, Joe Root, James Tredwell, Boyd Rankin, Chris Jordan.
