It may be the first T20I, but it’s already must-win territory for England. Coming into this series with hopes of finally retaining the Ashes, the home side fell to a potentially fatal defeat in what turned out to be a gripping Test match against Australia. However, they had a number of terrific individual performances, which can bode well for the limited overs matches.

Following their Test win led by Ashleigh Gardner’s superb 12-wicket haul, all Australia needs is two wins out of the six white-ball games. But, expect this magnificent team to fight for every victory, with the sheer depth and quality in their lineup so difficult to overcome. Indeed, a win here will put a firmer grip on the Ashes.

Womens Ashes 2023 EN-W vs AU-W 1st T20 Possible Playing XIs

England could look to play Danielle Gibson who batted well against Australia A recently. She scored 20* and 44 in two T20 matches.

England: 1. Sophia Dunkley, 2. Danni Wyatt, 3. Nat Sciver-Brunt, 4. Heather Knight (c), 5. Alice Capsey, 6. Maia Boucher/Danielle Gibson, 7. Issy Wong, 8. Sophie Ecclestone, 9. Kate Cross, 10. Charlie Dean, 11. Sarah Glenn

Australia can adjust their batting lineup according to the situation. Also, it will be a tough call regarding the final XI, with the likes of Phoebe Litchfield, Kim Garth and Georgia Wareham potentially missing out.

Australia: 1. Alyssa Healy (c & wk), 2. Beth Mooney, 3. Tahlia McGrath, 4. Ellyse Perry, 5. Ashleigh Gardner, 6. Grace Harris, 7. Annabel Sutherland, 8. Jess Jonassen, 9. Darcie Brown, 10. Alana King, 11. Megan Schutt
