Manchester Weather Forecast, England vs Australia 1st ODI

World champion and top-ranked England and their great rivals Australia, ranked fifth, will play in a three-match ODI series beginning September 11. The three ODIs are part of the newly introduced ICC Cricket World Cup Super League. Every ODI/series part of the league carries points which will determine the top-seven teams who directly qualify for the 2023 ODI World Cup in India.

This will also be the first time that the two teams square off after their world cup 2019 semifinal showdown where England emerged victorious before eventually winning the title.

England captain Eoin Morgan said, “It’s a huge benefit to us playing at Old Trafford, particularly if we play on the wicket I think we’re going to play on, which will hopefully be slow and take a lot of turn.”

“It’s been overcast and that makes it tacky. That’s the sort of wicket we will be more than likely to play on in India in the World Cup of 2023 and to play on that for a period of time will expose us in different areas we need to get better at,” he added.
