ENG Vs AUS Dream11 Team: The way Australia has lost games from winning positions on the ongoing England tour, it’s surprising for everyone. Not only they should have won the T20I series, they should also have had an unassailable lead in the ODI series by now, but they have let the games drift and as things stand right now, they are just one defeat away from losing the ODI series after having lost the T20I series by 2-1 already.
It’s the third and final game of the 3-match ODI series and will start at 05:30 PM IST on Wednesday. The weather forecast suggests it might be partly cloudy for most parts of the day and the humidity will be high as well, but persistent showers are not really expected at any stage of the day.
Both the teams have won one game each and the third game has now turned into a decider, the winner of which will clinch the trophy. If Australia loses this series, this will be the third consecutive ODI series that they will lose away from home. They have already lost the ODI series in India and South Africa earlier this year.
The match will be played at Old Trafford, Manchester. The first two games of the series were also played at a similar venue and the team, which batted first, dominated the game as the pitch got tougher and tougher for batting as the game progressed.
ENG Vs AUS Who Will Win Dream11 Prediction
The way England managed to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat the other night, they will be really high on confidence coming into this game. Australia’s morale, on the other hand, would be shattered.
Quality-wise, the two teams are not too far off from each other. England’s batting might be a tad stronger, but Australia has got plenty of quality with the ball. However, the home advantage still makes England the favorites.
ENG playing 11 (expected): Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow, Joe Root, Eoin Morgan (C), Jos Buttler, Sam Billings, Chris Woakes, Sam Curran, Tom Curran, Adil Rashid, Jofra Archer
AUS playing 11 (expected): David Warner, Aaron Finch, Steve Smith, Marnus Labuschagne, Mitchell Marsh, Alex Carey, Glenn Maxwell, Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Adam Zampa, Josh Hazlewood
Jonny Bairstow: Jonny Bairstow has not been at his fluent best this summer, but he has still found a way to score runs and has scored a couple of half-centuries in his last three outings. He will be a force for England at the top of the order and might be a good choice as Dream11 captain.
Aaron Finch: Aaron Finch has easily been the most in-form Aussie batsman on this tour. Even in the last game on a very difficult wicket, Australia seemed to be cruising towards victory till the time Finch was at the crease. The Australian captain will once again hold the key for his team.
Adam Zampa: Adam Zampa has been the highest wicket-taker in the series so far as he has got 7 scalps to his name in just two games at an average of 13. The playing surface has certainly assisted him, but Zampa has bowled in the right areas as well.
Jofra Archer: Jofra Archer has made a massive impact with the ball for England as he has got a three-wicket haul in both the games he has played in the series so far. Jofra’s impact with both the new and the old ball was one of the reasons why England managed to successfully defend a modest total in the second ODI.
