Women’s Ashes: EngW v AusW 3rd ODI Preview Dream11. England Women vs Australia Women 3rd ODI Preview Dream11 Prediction

The beauty of the Women’s Ashes format is that there can be no dead rubber at this stage of the campaign.

England were right in both ODIs so far. However, they were left to rue their batting on both occasions, falling under-par twice before their bowlers did all they could to rescue the situation. A win here would give their campaign the boost they need, as a 6-0 points deficit puts far too much pressure on them ahead of the one-off Test worth four points. This is must-win.

Australia haven’t been perfect. However, they have been professional, setting both ODIs up with the ball before holding their nerve in the chases. That they haven’t had the perfect batting performance yet despite two wins can be an ominous warning for England. Can Meg Lanning’s team clean-sweep the ODI series and take a potentially Ashes-winning 6-0 lead?

Key to an England win

Tammy Beaumont is one hell of a player. Her strokeplay puts pressure back on the bowlers, using timing to perfection to elevate England. She was brilliant in the second ODI, but lacked the crucial support needed to get England to a bigger total, which was proven by her scoring over 50% of the team’s runs. Here, more is needed from the likes of Amy Jones and Heather Knight if England are to put together a strong team effort, rather than relying on one player or two to get them to a competitive score.

Also, if you give this England side the chance to bowl first or defend a strong total, you can be confident in them helping deliver victory. They are bowling a lot better as a unit than they are batting, putting Australia under pressure twice in this series. Can Anya Shrubsole back up her three wickets with more here? Can the likes of Katherine Brunt, Kate Cross, Sophie Ecclestone and Laura Marsh all combine to get the better of Australia’s strong batting lineup? It’s all to play for now.

Key to an Australia win

The Australian attack combined beautifully to build pressure on England, knowing damage could be done with Tammy Beaumont off-strike. That they did, picking up regular wickets, with the main destroyer Delissa Kimmince with five. Ellyse Perry with early wickets will be the order of the day again, and Beaumont will be the prize one given her record and the form she is in. Can the Aussie bowlers combine again to consign England’s strong lineup to another under-par performance?

Also, Australia’s middle order came to the fore in what was a real positive for the team. Ellyse Perry had some luck with a stumping call on four, but she translated that into a crucial 62 that set things up for Australia. However, like England, Australia are losing wickets a bit too regularly, with Jess Jonassen and Beth Mooney proving how important they are down the order. Will this be the day the Australian top order – led by Alyssa Healy – provides a strong start that the middle order can build on?
