England’s tour of Australia comes to a close at the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG), the location of their triumph last week. Despite the ODI series loss, it has been a successful visit, with England flexing their white-ball muscle in the T20 World Cup. Now, they will be aiming for the perfect finish.

Given the crowds have been low for this squeezed-in ODI series, the scene for this dead rubber will be a lot more low key compared to last Sunday’s T20 World Cup Final. However, there is an opportunity for players to showcase their skills. England are expected to give fringe players another chance, while the likes of Marnus Labuschagne will be aiming to find their feet in this format.

AUS vs ENG 3rd ODI Possible XIs

Expect more rotation in this match. Mitchell Starc has been rested ahead of the Tests against West Indies, with Riley Meredith called into the squad.

Sean Abbott is yet to have a game. Pat Cummins was rested for the second ODI, and could return. Cameron Green is also out of this match to get ready for the first Test against West Indies, while Ashton Agar is unavailable as he will play in the Prime Minister’s XI match vs Windies on Wednesday.

Australia: 1. David Warner, 2. Travis Head, 3. Steve Smith, 4. Marnus Labuschagne, 5. Alex Carey (wk), 6. Marcus Stoinis, 7. Mitchell Marsh, 8. Sean Abbott, 9. Pat Cummins (c), 10. Josh Hazlewood/Riley Meredith, 11. Adam Zampa

Every England squad player has played a game so far. With the series gone, the tourists may look to give squad members experience. Also, it remains to be seen whether the likes of Jos Buttler and Moeen Ali play.

England: 1. Jason Roy, 2. Phil Salt, 3. Dawid Malan, 4. James Vince, 5. Sam Billings, 6. Jos Buttler (c & wk), 7. Moeen Ali, 8. Liam Dawson, 9. David Willey/Luke Wood, 10. Chris Jordan/Sam Curran, 11. Adil Rashid/Olly Stone

  • David Warner averages 31.12 vs England (26 ODIs) and 31.63 at the MCG (11 ODIs). He is Australia’s second-highest run scorer in ODIs this year: 12 inns, 446 runs, avg. 37.16, SR 90.28.
  • Travis Head has struck four 50+ scores in eight ODIs this year. Also, Head has scored 771 runs as opener at an average of 45.35 and strike rate of 104.76.
  • Riley Meredith has taken two five-wicket hauls and a four-wicket haul in eight matches across the Marsh Cup and Sheffield Shield this season.
  • Adam Zampa has taken seven wickets in two matches this series. The leg-spinner has plenty of white-ball experience at the MCG, with 41 wickets in 31 T20 innings at an economy of 6.84. Interestingly, he went wicketless in his two ODIs on this ground.

England:

  • Jason Roy is in need of runs. He smashed a record 180 in his only ODI at the MCG, back in 2018.
  • James Vince looked in fine touch in the second ODI (60). He hasn’t had much success in the BBL at MCG (8 inns, 155 runs, avg. 19.38), so the number four will be looking to turn this around.
  • Dawid Malan hit a superb century in the first match (134). Sam Billings is England’s other significant scorer in this series (71 in the second ODI).
  • Adil Rashid was outstanding in the T20 World Cup Final on this ground (2/22). The legspinner has the most wickets of any current England bowler against Australia (25 matches, 45 wickets, avg. 29.71, econ. 5.77).
  • Sam Curran was player of the match in the T20 World Cup Final at the MCG (3/12). If he plays, Curran will be aiming to improve on his 0/55 off seven overs at the SCG.

Other Stats and Facts

  • Mitchell Starc has dismissed Jason Roy twice in this series. So, Roy will be glad Starc is out of this match.
  • Chris Woakes vs David Warner in ODIs: 142 balls bowled, 97 runs conceded, four dismissals.
  • Travis Head has scored six half-centuries in 12 ODIs against England.
  • Steve Smith in ODIs at the MCG: 10 inns, 353 runs, avg. 39.22, SR 81.33.

MCG Melbourne Pitch Report and Weather

A cool and cloudy day is forecast in Melbourne (top of 18 degrees). There is a 40% chance of showers, but the expected amount is only 0-1mm. So, there should be a full game.

The chasing team has won five of the last six ODIs at the MCG, dating back to the 2015 World Cup Final. The average first innings score in these matches is 249.33. If recent conditions are taken into account, the seamers should find some help, especially with the new ball.
