England may have won the Ashes, but Australia are beginning to smile. England need to get into shape real fast as they go into the third ODI at the Rose Bowl.
England have looked poorer in the ODIs and their batting has simply failed to get the launch. Unless they can manage to change that scenario, Australia are threatening to run away with the ODI series.
England’s bowlers cannot be faulted but their batsmen have to prove they are game for the series and that England can have a heady finish to this series as they did to the Ashes.
Australia’s bowling though has received a huge fillip with the return of Brett Lee. Putting the disappointment of not being picked in the Ashes series behind him, Lee has shown refreshing enthusiasm, renewed aggression and England are feeling the heat as Lee appears to be venting his frustration.
