England look for a clean sweep with a win in the final T20I

  • Australia failed to chase down a total in both the T20Is so far
  • After Buttler and Hales show in the first game, Malan delivered a match-winning knock in the 2nd T20I
  • While Mitchell Marsh is a big positive for Australia, Maxwell’s lean form is a growing concern

Our prediction is for England to win the match

England look in solid form ahead of the T20 World Cup. They won back-to-back matches on this tour of Australia with their returnees finding form right away. The fact that even after being reduced to 4 for 54, England could still put a competitive total on the board shows the strength of their lineup.

Australia aren’t far behind. They lost both matches by a margin of 8 runs and had some impressive performances from their key players. Warner, Marsh, Stoinis, and Tim David are the top performers for Australia and will be the ones to watch out for going ahead. 

England would be happy with Sam Curran’s bowling efforts. The young lad has bagged 5 wickets from two games so far. For Australia, Cummins, Hazlewood, and Zampa would be key to a comeback. 

However, given England’s batting strength, one cannot expect complete dominance from the Aussie bowlers. And it will be down to the batters on both teams to lead their team to victory.

Australia Preview

Australia will be hoping to finish the T20i series on a winning note before they start their T20 World Cup campaign. Though they lost both games, they haven’t been really bad in these outings either. There are still some positives for Australia going ahead as they begin their World Cup title defence in a week’s time after this series. 

Marcus Stoinis is delivering with both bat and ball and that's big news. This adds more bowling variety and gives the skipper more options to turn to if any of their lead bowlers fail. Mitchell Marsh, Maxwell, and Stoinis are three batting all-rounders and all of them have the ability to deliver breakthroughs. 

The only major concern at this point is Maxwell not striking well at number 4. However, there is depth in this batting order with Tim David and Matthew Wade emerging as reliable match-finishers in the lower middle order.

Pat Cummins at number 8 is also a very handy batter and has proven his big-hitting abilities in the IPL. Aaron Finch and Maxwell will be the ones expected to find their rhythm in the 3rd and final T20I. Starc and Hazlewood will also be the ones to watch out for with the ball.

Australia Predicted Playing XI:

David Warner, Aaron Finch (c), Mitchell Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Tim David, Matthew Wade (wk), Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Adam Zampa, Josh Hazlewood

England Preview

England started the T20I series with a bang as their openers went berserk from the get-go. The skipper who was returning from an injury scored a quickfire 68 off 32 balls in the first game opening the innings for his team. Hales, who returned to international cricket after a long gap, also made a huge impact in the same match. 

And when both openers were back in the hut early in the next game, it was Malan who stepped up and led from the front. Moeen Ali is another reliable batter lower down the order. Most wristy batters are known for their abilities to find gaps but Moeen uses his wrists to hit the long ball. 

While England continue to enjoy the experience and skills of Chris Jordan, the rise of left-arm quick Sam Curran is a big positive. Adil Rashid, who has been a key bowler for England in the limited overs, has struggled in this series so far.

However, just as in the batting department, England have variety in bowling as well. And there are the likes of Ben Stokes, David Willey, and Moeen Ali who can come in and give their side a crucial breakthrough.

In contrast with the Australian selection, England has gone with bowling all-rounders and it seems to be working for them. Two batting and two bowling all-rounders seem to have given the perfect balance to this England team. 

England Predicted Playing XI:

Jos Buttler (c & wk), Alex Hales, Dawid Malan, Ben Stokes, Harry Brook, Moeen Ali, Sam Curran, David Willey, Chris Jordan, Adil Rashid, Reece Topley

Weather Conditions

A good batting wicket is on offer at the Manuka Oval, Canberra and the last game played here witnessed some aggressive stroke play from both teams. Scattered showers are expected on the match day with a high of 14 degrees Celsius.

Venue Details

Not many international matches were played at the Manuka Oval in Canberra. England’s 178 in the last game was the highest score in a T20I on this ground. However, in BBL, the average 1st innings score at this venue is 169 runs.

Toss: To Bowl

Teams batting second have won 12 of the 19 BBL matches played here. The pitch is great for batting and doesn’t change much through the course of the game. The overcast conditions can assist the new ball bowlers and put the team bowling first in a strong position.

Both teams are equally matched in terms of squad strength. It is tricky to pick a clear favourite even though England has won back-to-back matches in the series so far. There are match-winners on both teams and one inspired performance could change the course of the game. Considering the current form of England’s key players and their momentum, the visiting team would start as favourites in our match prediction.

Our prediction is for England to win the match
