Australia Women to win this game

Australia Women would be looking to draw inspiration from their male counterparts as they take on England Women in the Only Test Match of the Women’s Ashes. The last two series between the two teams have ended in tame draws and Australians who currently hold the title would be eager to win this game and make use of their knowledge of the conditions here.
England Women haven’t won a Test Match in a while, and it’s been seven years since their last victory. Most players in the side haven’t been part of a Test Match winning squad and this would be playing on their minds. It will be interesting to see if the English girls can overcome the odds and register one of their most memorable wins on Australian soil.
It's been some time since their last victory in this format of the game. Meg Lanning would look for a win playing at home. She would look for inspiration from the men’s side which delivered a crushing blow to the Englishmen recently. The side would have to work hard on its batting as this is one area that has troubled them in this format over the last few years.
They would need a steady start from Beth Mooney and Alyssa Healy in this game. The pair brings vast experience to the game. Lanning, Ellyse Perry, and Tahlia McGrath add strength to the middle order for the side. They would also hope to see runs from Nicola Carey, Annabel Sutherland, and Ashleigh Gardner whose recent form hasn’t been great and they would need to be on their toes against England’s strong bowling attack.
The side would hope to see early wickets in the game from Megan Schutt and Hannah Darlington. The pair would aim to make good use of the new ball. Jess Jonassen returns to the side and brings her vast experience into the game. Nicola Carey, Sutherland, and Gardener add to the bowling options for the side going into this contest.

Heather Knight would have a tough challenge on her hands. As a skipper, she has never tasted victory in this format of the game. The same has been the story for most other players in the squad. The Australians would have better knowledge of the conditions and expected to come hard at them. Knight shall have to motivate her players and get the best performance out of them.
Openers Lauren Winfield Hill and Tammy Beaumont have an important role to play in the game and they must see off the new ball. They have good strength in the middle order with Natalie Sciver, Knight, and Amy Ellen Jones. The side would also need contributions from the bat of Sophia Dunkley and Mady Villiers in this game to put themselves in a commanding position in the game.
On the bowling front, Katherine Brunt and Anya Shrubsole shall have to use the new ball well and get early breakthroughs in this game. Kate Cross and Sophie Ecclestone would have to play the supporting role well in this game. Villiers, Sciver, and Knight add good bowling options, but they would face a tough challenge against the Australians.

Canberra would mostly see overcast skies with chances of rain between January 27 and 30. There would be some grass on the surface and fast bowlers are expected to have a good time on this track. Batters would need to watch out and play to the merit of the ball to do well on this tricky surface.
Manuka Oval, Canberra is known for offering early assistance to the fast bowlers and we have mostly seen low scoring games at this venue. But batters have also done well once they get their eyes set on this wicket. It isn’t the best venue in Australia for the spinners and they have mostly struggled in the past.
The conditions are expected to be good for bowling at the start of the game and the wicket would get easier to bat on from Day 2 onward. The side winning the toss here shall aim to take full advantage of the conditions in this game by opting to bowl first and restrict the opponents to a small total.
England Women would be under pressure to deliver. Most of their players have struggled in these conditions in the past and the side has had a 7-year wait for a Test win. Their batters would have to be on the top of the game for the side to succeed. Australia Women have done well at home and their recent form has been good and this would make the side favorites here.
