AU-W vs IN-W Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11, Toss, Pitch And Match Report: Potential semi-final on our hands with the winner of this encounter meeting England in the summit clash.
When India had made an advent into the ongoing Tri-Series between themselves, England and Australia, no one had expected the side to languish in the deaths of the points tally after three encounters. Their defeat to England yesterday sees the side sit in third place ahead of their final series encounter against Australia today, one which has taken on a whole new meaning now.
This contest is a must win one for a stumbling Indian side after their tiresome display yesterday. They out on a sorry 123, one which was never going to be enough for their bowling unit to defend with the side being putdown by 4 wickets as the English side managed to squirm their way through to a win.
The bygone result means India have to come out with a win when they sqaure off against Australia today with another defeat meaning the end of their chances of making it to the coveted summit clash. For Australia meanwhile who have the one win and one defeat apiece from their sorties till now, today’s clash will be all about emulating their previous 4 wicket win against India.
This will be an extremely closely contested clash given the ramifications stemming from the clash for either side, a fixture we envisage Australia just about edging their way. India have been in horrendous touch with the bat off late and with Australia holding a better understanding of the playing conditions, the home side should manage to muster up a win.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
A wicket which will have something in it for everyone, we’ll be in for an even contest between bat and ball for this one. The team winning the toss will be looking to come out and chase given the threat of rain in the air for this fixture.

AU-W vs IN-W Dream11 Wicket-Keeper
Alyssa Healy has been engulfed in languid touch off late but we’ll still be sticking in with the Australian opener for today’s upcoming encounter. She comes out to open for her side, a position which is more than enough to see us repose faith in her given her ability to cream the ball to the fence with ease.
AU-W vs IN-W Dream11 Batswomen
Smriti Mandhana once again tried to save a floundering Indian batting display yesterday with the bat top scoring for her side with the 45 runs to make the opener our first selection for today’s tie. She’s joined up by opener Shafali Verma, someone who hasn’t had the best of campaigns but is more than capable of revelling us in her clean hitting brand of cricket.
From the Australian side meanwhile, Beth Mooney’s imperious innings of 65 in the opening slot against England sees her become a must have selection from the side for this forthcoming contest. Captain Rachel Haynes comes in as well for us to wrap up our most heavily indulged in ambit.
AU-W vs IN-W Dream11 All-Rounders
Deepti Sharma has been consistent as ever with the ball for the Indian unit with her wicket to wicket bowling making it extremely difficult for the bats to get under her deliveries. She was always going to be a regulation selection for us along with her captain Harmanpreet Kaur who has kept waging a lone battle for her side in the batting order to scrape together crucial runs.
Elsewhere, with the 49 runs and 4 wickets the last time these two units met, Ellyse Perry canters her way into our framework from Australia.
AU-W vs IN-W Dream11 Bowling Order
With Australia playing around with their bowling unit this series and giving a slew of players soirees out in the middle with the ball, there was only one viable option from the team for us. With 3-13 against India previously, Tayla Vlaeminck is assured of four overs with the ball, a discourse which makes her a must have pick for this one.
Elsewhere, from India we’ll be going in with Rajeshwari Gayakwad after she returned with emphatic figures of 3-23 against the English unit yesterday. Radha Yadav joins her up given the nature of this wicket, one which will allow her to get immense deviations on the ball.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Perry captains our side for the tie while Gayakwad is our vice-captain.
