Match Preview

Fans got plenty of value for their money at Blundstone Arena on Friday night, with 415 runs scored and 15 wickets falling as Australia got over the line by 11 runs.

The hosts batted first and David Warner was at his dynamic best, blasting 70 off 36 balls to propel his side to a hot start. Inglis also contributed 39 before the Windies fought back, taking 5/66 before Tim David and Matthew Wade steadied the ship.

The pair guided Australia to 7/213, a formidable total, but Brandon King and Johnson Charles made a hot start for the Windies. 

An 89-run opening stand gave the tourists hope, before King and Charles fell for 53 and 42, respectively, shifting the momentum back towards Australia.

A couple of cameos followed, but none of the batters were able to go big, with Aussie leg-spinner Adam Zampa producing figures of 3/26 in an otherwise tough night for the bowlers.

A quickfire 34 for Jason Holder added respectability to the scoreline, but in the end it was a fairly comfortable win for the men in green and gold, who will again be heavy favourites on Sunday.

Spencer Johnson is set to come into the XI for the hosts, perhaps at the expense of Hazlewood or Abbott. Otherwise, expect similar line-ups.

While I put my faith behind the Windies in Game 1, their poor fielding and lack of penetration with the ball have swayed me towards the Aussies for this second encounter.

Prop Bets

A whopping 16 maximums were struck between the teams on Friday, and I expect plenty more here. Adelaide Oval is traditionally a batters paradise, and there are plenty of big hitters on either side.

15+ Total Match Sixes $2.20 (Ladbrokes)

Inglis scored 39 in Game 1, combining with David Warner for an electrifying 93-run opening stand. Inglis also passed 25 in 2/3 ODIs, so he is in fine form and should contribute significantly again.
