Women’s Ashes: AusW v EngW 1st ODI Preview Dream11 Prediction. Australia Women vs England Women 1st ODI Preview Dream11

The Women’s Ashes – a source of fantastic cricket for years, kicks off with the first ODI in Leicester. The rivalry resumes between two sides who love to dislike each other, making this series one of the most anticipated in recent times.

England have revenge on their minds. They have not held the Ashes since 2015, where they lost both the ODI and T20I series’ as well as the lone Test at home. The England side possesses a good mix of youth and experience, and given that they are the reigning World Champions, they will most certainly be out to make a great start to the campaign. Every game counts for plenty, and the home side will be looking to make a great start.

They come up against a magnificent Australia team. Current holders of the Ashes and World T20 Title, the Australians under Meg Lanning continue to showcase their professionalism, hard work and talent whenever they step out onto the field. They retained the Ashes in 2017 off the back of a drawn result across the three formats, and will be out to make a mark early away from home.

Key to an England win

England possess excellent top order experience and talent in Tammy Beaumont, Amy Jones (in terrific form), Sarah Jones and Heather Knight. In big games, a lot rests on the platform the top order sets for the team, especially against a well-rounded Australia attack. The likes of Megan Schutt and Ellyse Perry have been magnificent for Australia at the top, so how England overcome their threat will be key. With Natalie Sciver a key cog in the middle order, the platform she is given is vital, given Australia possess excellent change bowlers after Schutt and Perry.

Also, can England’s bowlers get the better of Australia’s batting? Anya Shrubsole – the hero of England’s World Cup Final win in 2017, will be key again, along with the experienced Katherine Brunt in leading an English attack that contains youth and a few all-rounders. Can England get the better of the dangerous Alyssa Healy? How much pressure can they put on Australia’s middle order?

Key to an Australia win

For England to win, they will have to outplay Australia’s proven top order. Alyssa Healy, Beth Mooney, Meg Lanning and Ashleigh Gardner is a batting cog that any team in the world would love to have. England’s experienced bowlers will be out for early wickets, so a solid start than enables Australia to put pressure onto England’s change bowlers. With the likes of Rachael Haynes, Ellyse Villani and Ellyse Perry in the middle order, you can count on a strong platform to be capitalised on.

Also, can Australia’s well-balanced attack tame England’s batting threat? Ellyse Perry and Megan Schutt have 209 ODI wickets between them, and whether they outplay England’s opening bowlers can have a say in the result. Their battle against England’s capable top order is one to watch out for, and with plenty of talent including Ashleigh Gardner and Georgia Wareham, Australia have the resources to pick up crucial wickets in the middle overs. Indeed, if Australia play Tayla Vlaeminck, who was bowling with good pace in the nets, it could add another dimension to their attack.

Pitch and conditions

The forecast is for a sunny day at Grace Road in Leicester. The pitch looked quite green a couple of days out before the match. I expect a lot of the grass will be shaven off before the match.
