Analysis for the match.

The cricket calendar is never-ending and this is why we have two of the biggest international teams going head-to-head just a couple of days after the T20 World Cup Final. Australia and England will be playing a three-match ODI series starting in Adelaide. 

The build-up to the next World Cup will start which will be the ODI World Cup in 2023. 

Match prediction and cricket betting tips for Australia vs England 1st ODI 2022. The match will be played at the Adelaide Oval, Adelaide on the 17th of November 2022.  

Must see point.

1). England has a slightly stronger batting lineup

2). Australia's bowling lineup was in poor form in the T20 World Cup and may be under pressure

3). England's batting depth is greater and we think it has more dynamism in its lineup

Match Prediction: ENG to win the match.

1). If AUS won the toss and opted to bat first, they could score 270-290 runs.

2). If ENG won the toss and opted to bat first,they could score 280-300 runs.


Secondary Predictions.

1). David Warner total runs - Over 24.5 runs

David Warner will be charged with getting the team off to a flying start and the aggressive opener is our tip for Australia’s highest run scorer against England.

2). Joss Buttler total runs - Over 24.5 runs.

Jos Buttler averages 40.42 in this format and 40.78 against Australia in ODIs. He is our pick for England’s highest run scorer in this opening game of the series.

3). Mitch Starc to take over 2.5 wickets - Yes

We recommend backing Mitch Starc to take over 2.5 wickets in this fixture at the Adelaide Oval.


Match Preview.

Australia is going through a transition phase and it will be interesting to see if it makes the tough calls that it did not while picking its T20 team. There is still a lot of dependence on David Warner in the top order but there is an opportunity for the rest of the batting lineup to be a bit more dynamic.

Cameron Green or Travis Head could be the second opener with a license to attack with Mitchell Marsh, Marcus Stoinis, and Alex Carey all providing power in the middle. Steve Smith will continue to play ODI cricket as he has and you can almost bank on him to be consistent.

Australia's bowling is world-class. It did not have the best time in the T20 World Cup but it would be a bit premature to write it off. Pat Cummins, Josh Hazelwood, and Adam Zampa are all sure to play but Mitchell Starc may find himself under pressure. 

England is the current ODI and the T20 World Champion. This is the first time that a team has held both titles and it is the result of some revolutionary changes that England has made. It is the strongest batting team in terms of depth and it has managed to inculcate a brilliant sense of freedom in its batters.

As a result, players like Jos Buttler, Phil Salt, Moeen Ali, and Sam Curran can bat with a fantastic attacking mindset. Of course, this is a 50-over contest and so there is room for players like James Vince, Dawid Malan, and Sam Billings that can play a more conventional role in the team as well.

England has no shortage of batters to choose from and it also has a number of all-rounders to extend its batting lineup. Almost all of its bowlers can bat and that can be crucial in the 50-over format.

England's bowling lineup is a bit underpowered. Chris Woakes, Sam Curran, and Chris Jordan have a tremendous amount of experience and Adil Rashid has been in great form as well. However, there is no bowler that is express pace to hurry up the batters. If there is a lack of swing, then the English bowlers could suffer.

Match details.

Time - Nov 17th, 08:50 am, IST.

Venue - Adelaide Oval - Adelaide, Australia 


Pitch reports.

The weather forecast for this match is brilliant. There is no rain predicted and the temperatures should be very comfortable as well. The pitch is generally very good for batting and the short boundaries make it perfect for the big hitters. We think 300 is absolutely on the cards for both teams. 

Team News.


This match marks a new era for Australia’s ODI side with Pat Cummins the new captain after Aaron Finch retired from the format at the end of the New Zealand series in September. Finch will be replaced by Travis Head at the top of the order alongside David Warner.Australia have won six of their last seven ODIs.

Possible XI - Travis Head, David Warner, Steve Smith, Mitchell Marsh, Marcus Stoinis, Cameron Green, Alex Carey (wk), Pat Cummins (c), Mitchell Starc, Adam Zampa, Josh Hazlewood 


After winning the 2022 T20 World Cup on Sunday, we can expect to see a number of changes to the team with the format change ahead of this opening game of the series. Alex Hales, Mark Wood, Harry Brook, Ben Stokes and Liam Livingstone are all not in the squad for the three ODIs.England have won only two of their last six ODIs.

Possible XI - Jason Roy, Phil Salt, James Vince, Sam Billings, Jos Buttler (c & wk), Moeen Ali, Sam Curran, Chris Woakes, Adil Rashid, Chris Jordan, Olly Stone
