With the sensible performances of Maxwell (77 off 59 balls) and Marsh (73 off 100 balls) in the 1st ODI, Australia put forth a decent target of 295 runs. The early fall of wickets has pushed England on the backfoot. Sam Billings coming at 5 made a 113 runs partnership with Jonny Bairstow.
Billings(118 off 110 balls) scored his maiden century in ODIs but it went in vain as Australia won the 1st ODI with a margin of 19 runs. Josh Hazlewood(10-3-26-3) was awarded as man of the match who took the early wickets.
In 2nd ODI, England will try to bounce back and level the series. It was a batting track and their bowlers did a good job. The collapse of their top order was the reason for their defeat.

Venue: Old Trafford Cricket ground, Manchester
LIve On: Sony Six, Sony Liv.
As we saw in 1st ODI, the pitch was favorable for batting. The bounce was good and also the ball was coming nicely on the bat. The spinners had the upper hand in the 1st ODI. Adil Rashid and Zampa got 2 and 4 wickets respectively in the middle overs. Again the 2nd and 3rd ODI are going to be played on the same pitch. So the role of spinners will be crucial in both the games.
For Eng vs Aus 2nd ODI, the weather forecast is partly sunny and pleasant. There are minimal chances of rain. The afternoon temperature will be around 22°C, and the minimum temperature of 11°C at night.

Will Steve Smith play in 2nd ODI?
The Australian Star player Steve Smith is set to return to the team in the 2nd ODI after passing the second concussion test on Sunday. He was struck on the head during the practice session just before the 1st ODI. So, Marcus Stoinis most probably could miss the 2nd ODI.
