After setting a mighty 334 to win in the 6th ODI, it seemed as though England would be comfortable in victory but contrived to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory to go 5-1 down in the series.
However, the Baggy Greens have opted to rest Shane Watson and Michael Clarke ahead of Sunday’s ODI, a huge boost for England. Watson has troubled England with both bat and ball and will be glad to see the back of him. Jason Krejza comes in but Mitchell Johnson is the man to watch – he returns to Perth, his happy hunting ground in the Ashes, he is 4/1 at Sportingbet to take the most wickets.
Collingwood is injured for England so Luke Wright comes in and it’s an oppurtunity for England to beat a slightly weakened Australia at 11/10 (bet365) and regain just a little bit of belief ahead of the World Cup.
