Michael Vaughan predicts Buttler to continue form and England to beat Australia

Michael Vaughan predicts Buttler to continue form and England to beat Australia”

Speaking from Engalnd ahead of the series, Warne said, "I just can't wait - Australia back playing cricket against the old enemy in England - taking on the world champions in their own backyard".

The Twenty20s should have served as preparation for October's T20 World Cup in Australia but the Covid-19 outbreak means the next edition of the global showpiece will take place in India in 2021.

Assistant editor Daniel Brettig had been a journalist for eight years when he joined ESPNcricinfo, but his fascination with cricket dates back to the early 1990s, when his dad helped him sneak into the family lounge room to watch the end of day-night World Series matches well past bedtime.

England beat Australia in the semi-finals of the 50-over World Cup past year but Finch said his side did not carry scars from that experience.

In one of Australian cricket's most shameful episodes, Steve Smith, David Warner and Cameron Bancroft were suspended for lengthy periods for their parts in a plot to tamper with the ball in a test match against South Africa in Cape Town.

England's squad for the T20I series against Australia: Eoin Morgan (captain), Moeen Ali, Jofra Archer, Jonathan Bairstow, Tom Banton, Sam Billings, Jos Buttler, Sam Curran, Tom Curran, Joe Denly, Chris Jordan, Dawid Malan, Adil Rashid, Mark Wood.

"I don't know if they were doing it deliberately to try and scare us, but I'll be out to try and stop that as much as I can and stop Australia winning". During Langer's first assignment as a coach, the men in yellow suffered a 0-5 battering in ODIs in England while losing the T20 and Tests series to Pakistan in the UAE as well.

"The team had made a awful judgment in South Africa and, individually and collectively, we paid the price".

Australia has a tried-and-tested T20 lineup that has lifted the team atop the ICC rankings in the format, so batsman Marnus Labuschagne will likely need to wait for his debut despite impressing in both the Test and ODI teams over the past year and hitting a century in a warm-up game this week.

"Individually, collectively, we all paid a price for that".

"We came here with a very young team because of the circumstances and, gosh, that put hairs on their chest to lose 5-0 in England". The Western Australian reckoned that they had to earn back their respect, which they have on and off the field. It was that one last punch from "Mother Cricket" saying 'you guys made a mistake, make sure you remember it'.

"I think we're in for an absolute beauty. We've still got some exciting times ahead of us, challenging times ahead of us but hopefully we're moving in the right direction".

Labuschagne, a breakout star of last year's drawn Ashes campaign in England, scored 100 off 51 balls when opening in a T20 trial game on Tuesday. "Who could have guessed his acceleration in improvement and that's what we love to see", Langer said.

"We've had a pretty settled T20 side over the last 12 months or so and all we can ask for is that guys bang so hard they are putting pressure on the guys in there".

"But he's certainly done, as has always been the way since coming into worldwide cricket, everything he possibly could".

"Whether Marnus plays this series or not, or certainly the first game on Friday night, time will tell; we haven't decided that yet".

Watch the first T20I between England and Australia live on Sky Sports Cricket and Sky Sports Main Event from 5.30pm on Friday.
