EN-W vs AU-W Dream11 Team: England look to take a vital two points from the concluding ODI after squandering the series 2-0
They made a foray into one of the grandest series in international cricket with an air of invincibility around them but they’ve been completely stripped of the high status they had accorded since February. Having not lost a single match in 14 across all formats previously, the English women team have now succumbed to two defeats on the bounce, seeing them lose an extremely important beginning series of the Women’s Ashes.
While the bowling department has continued to be as sturdy and strong as ever, it’s surprisingly an inform batting unit which has let the side down. Despite Tammy Beaumont’s 114 in the last contest, the rest of the batting department failed to revolve around with the next highest score being of 25. They went from a commanding position of 70-1 to lose their next 9 wickets for a mere 147, bundled out for a lowly 217 in the end.
And if wasn’t for their resilient bowling attack lined with exceptional players, the end result would have ended up getting extremely comical for the home side. With the top three failing to cross the 20 run mark, unfortunately couldn’t capitalise on the crucial junctures in the match, ending up with no one but themselves to blame as they allowed the sixth wicket partnership to pile of 60 runs.
Now back at it again today, the series is far from an inconsequential one for the home side. They might be in a position of no return as far as the context of winning the series goes but can still notch an important two points on the board for themselves and script a comeback.
With Sarah Taylor expected to come back into the number three spot and Beaumont delivering the biggest performance of her career in the previous match, England’s batting line-up does look more solid for the final encounter. They’ve roped Danielle Wyatt back into their setup as well to bolster a middle-order which has looked extremely brittle and If the bowlers can continue hitting the right area, the hosts will definitely mount a challenge in this one.
“A change of venue will be a nice change for us, we’ll have to debrief quite quickly again,” Knight said.
“We’ll try to park this and turn it around. We’ve done it before, we did it in Australia for the Ashes out there, so we’re going to have to turn it around very quickly.
The one reason though that has set them and Australia apart this series is the composure and strength Australia’s batting order has shown with partnerships being strung at vital junctures. They look by far the better batting side as of now and should win this one as well.
Wicket-Keepers for EN-W vs AU-W Dream11
She’s delivered two resolute innings now with her unbeaten 43 emerging as the main reason for her side’s win in the previous match. Its Beth Mooney, one of Australia’s most experienced bat and we see her parrying apart England’s bowling line with disdain once again. Paring her is Alyssa Healy after her 66 run knock in the series opener.
Batters for EN-W vs AU-W Dream11
Undoubtedly the finest batter in her side after that enthralling 100, Tammy Beaumont makes an entry into our playing 11 without any questions. Paired with Sarah Taylor for this one, we see her mounting a strong fight and stringing together an impressive stand at the top of the order.
Accompanying her is Danielle Wyatt with the batswoman coming back after being let out of the opening match of the series. She was back amongst the runs against West Indies and we fully see her freeing her arms and looming ominously around Australia’s bowlers.
All-Rounders for EN-W vs AU-W Dream11
A duo comes in from Australia in the form of leg-spinner Jess Jonassen and their finest batswoman, Ellyse Perry whose 62 in the second ODI held fort for her side as she remained undeterred despite wickets tumbling at the other end.
The ever reliable and flawless Natalie Sciver from the English line-up continues to be hammered into our side.
Bowling Order for EN-W vs AU-W Dream11
A career that’s spread over 11 long years, saw Delissa Kimmince pick up her first ever five wicket haul to decimate England. In what has been a career that has never managed to really get going for her, the experienced player finally registered figures of 5-26 in 7.4 overs to come into our side.
She’s going to be partnered by Megan Schutt while spinner Anya Shrubsole comes in from England.
Captain And Vice-Captain
We continue to opt for Natalie Sciver as the captain while Ellyse Perry is the vice-captain.
The prospective of making a team a team in Fantain was little trickier proposition with the more elevated prices of the star performers but the inclusion of Delissa Kimmince for a price tag of 8 credits allowed us to roll out the same team.
