    England with a chance to take an unassailable lead in the series. Will Australia remember to pick enough bowlers this time, does Smith even have a plan A, let alone a plan b for when it's going a bit pear shaped? All will be revealed. Match begins 1350 ACDT.

    Australia should maybe do an England and select a separate capt. for ODI's. Think Gough's got it right with NFI. [retain Smith as player and make him bowl]
    If things aren't working out we seem to be going back to what was broke in the first place. No flair or dare makes johnny a dull boy.

    Is Hazelwood due back today?

    Also if White is gonna play, he has to bat at 4 or 5 ffs. Stoinis and Carey can do the late innings slogging.

    If we are insistent on bringing back Paine, we should drop either Head or White and push Carey up the order as a specialist bat.

    Bloke did more than enough on debut to be retained, can't say the same about the other two

    Head should be dropped regardless. Just doesn't have the form going into this game

    Australia 1.64 favourites. England 2.30.

    Wow. We haven't even come close to winning a game.

    Not sure about the wisdom of Smith choosing to bat second at the SCG, the pitch usually slows up at night there.

    Mind you batting first hasn't worked out too well for them so far.

    Better balance.

    I think we'll look better with another batsman and one of Stoinis and Marsh though.

    Probably had to change it up due to the ease at which England have chased the last 2 totals.

    Would have liked to see Richardson keep his spot.

    Feel sorry for Carey and Richardson. They both earned their way in the last game but I don't understand the Zampa selection. Surely the selectors would be looking at GOAT for Sydney

    Will we see 10 overs go to a combination of Finch, White and Smith rather than giving Mitch Marsh a bowl?

    Really hope Zampa makes a contribution otherwise there may not be any SA boys in the team for their home ODI this Friday. If white has a stinker then Head must come back in

    Agreed, really Carey should have kept his spot too.

    Why? Paine was good the game before. Carey was promising but he will get some chances in the t20 series
