EN-W vs AU-W Dream 11 Team: The much revered and prestigious Women’s Ashes series gets underway with first of the
England Vs Australia Women’s Ashes ODIS Best Dream 11 Team
One of the most competitive and feisty competed series in the cricket fraternity is finally upon us. According a space among the echelons of cricket fixtures, the England vs Australia rivalry is one of the oldest and most tightly contested one.
And to wrap up a colossal and momentous rivalry between two gigantic cricketing countries is the Ashes, a series contested every two years to determine who walks away with the final word in this humdinger of a contest. Beginning things today in the Women’s Ashes is the first of the five ODIs between the two countries with both side’s set to further elevate and heave the level of their performances given the identity of the opposition.
As opposed to the men’s Ashes, the women’s one is fought on a mutli-format schedule. All three formats feature in the series with the winner of the Ashes being decided by a points system where a win in an ODI and T20 will add two points to a team’s kitty while success in a test match will add on four points.
Although its Australia who currently hold the title, they’ll be extremely wary of an English side who are currently on a record spree in the women’s circuit. Sitting on a 14 match winning run, one where they last lost an ODI to India in Mumbai in February, the side have ever since then swept apart India, Sri Lanka and ever so recently West Indies to write their names in the golden pages of cricket.
It’s this narrative which promises to make this series a real humdinger. We are bound to be regaled in an exhilarating brand of cricket between two giants in the cricket world, teams who will spare no expense and up the ante to walk away with one of the most coveted after trophy.
This English side is one of the most formidable and complete team in the international arena at the moment. Be it the batting front or the bowling department, the side is imbedded with specialist, worldclass players who love taking accountability on themselves and pummelling sides b functioning together to dwindle oppositions.
For all the astute strength England posses, they’ll be wary when against an Australian side who’ll be looking to keep the trophy with themselves. They recently beat England Academy by 68 runs and 6 wickets in their two warm-up matches respectively and promise to be an equal match for this English side.
This bound to be a real cracker of a match with us seeing England just managing to win this one solely on the basis of their better knowhow of the conditions and the fact that they have the better spin department, something Australia have always traditionally struggled against.
Wicket-Keepers for EN-W vs AU-W Dream 11
An entire barrage of wicket-keepers make a foray into our side with us opting for a duo from the English side while Australia have the one pick as well in the form of opener Alyssa Healy. Her 35 run innings in the opening warm-up match on a tricky surface saw her use all her guile to give her side the perfect platform at the top.
From England we have nailed down on Amy Jones and Sarah Taylor. The two are in mesmerising touch at the moment with Taylor in particular leaving no stone unwired to peel off the runs with ease, becoming the mainstay of her side’s consummate success.
Batsman for EN-W vs AU-W Dream 11
The lone pick from Australia is of one of their oldest campaigners Rachael Haynes after she showcased her astute know how of the game with a composed half-century against England Academy.
From the home side, its Danielle Wyatt who became our first pick. She’s rejuvenated, scoring 81 against West Indies in the only T20 before smashing an awe-inducing 93 from 76 balls against Australia A on Saturday. Her and Tammy Beaumont’s 62 saw her team put on a massive 341-8, subsequently divulging in an 81 run win and we see the two emulating the same performances today as well.
All-Rounders for EN-W vs AU-W Dream 11
Jess Jonassen is the first all-rounder from Australia to come in for us. She picked up 3-19 against England Academy in a rain curtailed 39 over fixture on a slowish track by getting the ball to spin away from the right hand bats and we see her getting a good bagful of wickets today as well.
From England, it’s as ever Natalie Sciver who we just couldn’t leave out. One of the finest players in not only her side but the world as well at the moment, she’s enjoying one of her most exuberant years for the English side. Perfectly intertwining her abilities with the bat and ball to trounce sides, the ever reliable and experienced Sciver is set to be amongst a rich haul of points today.
Bowling Order for EN-W vs AU-W Dream 11
From England, we have opted for their spearheads in both the pace and spin department by roping in Kate Cross and Anya Shrubsole respectively. The two persistently limited West Indies to meagre totals recently, making a mockery of what was a more than solid and stable attack and on a surface which will offer more than its fair share to the bowlers, we see them putting a deadly performance in unison.
If England are bound to rile up Australia with their spinners, the Australian time will be turning to their two left arm spinners in Jess Jonassen and Georgia Wareham to trouble an English batting unit completely consisting of right hand bats. Infact, ever since last July, the English side haven’t fielded a single lefthander in their batting unit, something which will make the left arm slower bowlers come into play massively.
“Both England and the England Academy side don’t have a left-handed batter, so we’re just trying to bowl as many balls at the right-handed batters as possible,” Jonassen explained.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Natalie Sciver is our captain for the series opener while Danielle Wyatt gets to be the vice-captain.
