How to watch Australia vs England T20 on TV and online

England and Australia continue their preparations for the T20 World Cup with their second meeting of a three-game series in Canberra.

A 132-run opening partnership between Alex Hales and Jos Buttler led England to victory in the opening game in Perth, with Sam Curran and Mark Wood performing well at death to ensure Australia failed to catch England’s 208-6 aggregate.

The hosts opted to rest some of their key players from the first game ahead of a World Cup on home soil.

They’re hoping for an improved performance in the Australian capital to keep the series alive.

Here’s everything you need to know before the second T20I.

The second T20I between England and Australia is scheduled to start at 9.10am BST on Wednesday 12th October at the Manuka Oval in Canberra.

Viewers in the UK can watch the game live on BT Sport 1 with coverage starting at 8:45am BST. Subscribers can stream the action live via the BT Sport app or online player.

The majority of Australia’s first-choice T20 team return for the second of three meetings, with Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood, Pat Cummins, Adam Zampa and Glenn Maxwell all available again.

Australia’s side are likely to be similar to the one Andrew McDonald wants to start the World Cup with, with Aaron Finch confirming he will return with a middle-order berth to open batting with David Warner following the captain’s recent dalliances. Nathan Ellis has not traveled to Canberra despite an impressive 3-20 in the first T20.

A superb 84 in Perth seems to have secured Alex Hales’ place at the top of the rankings for England at least for the start of the World Cup. Ben Stokes has been promoted in the first T20I and Jos Buttler will be keen for his all-rounder to get further time down the middle if possible in a format where the 31-year-old hasn’t featured heavily in the last 18 months or so. Liam Livingstone is again left out – he is targeting an injury return for England’s clash with Pakistan at the Gabba on Monday.

However, Chris Jordan seems ready to return from his finger injury, while Mark Wood and Reece Topley could be rested after their Perth spell – if the latter is out David Willey could well be tasked with the left arm’s new ball roll in order to create a batting order of exceptional further extend the depth.

Australia: Warner, Finch (c), Marsh, Maxwell, Stoinis, David, Wade (wk), Cummins, Starc, Zampa, Hazlewood.

England: Buttler (c&wk), Hales, Malan, Stokes, Brook, Moeen, Curran, Jordan, Woakes, Willey, Rashid.

Australia wins 10/11

England wins 24/23

The Manuka Oval’s surface tends to be a little less friendly than those both batting orders enjoyed in Perth on Sunday, so a lower-scoring affair is likely. Australia’s replenished, refreshed bowling attack could therefore give the home side an advantage. Australia wins chasing a decider.
