EN-W vs AU-W Dream11 : Hosts turns to the shortest format of the game as they look to resume some semblance after losing the Ashes trophy to Australia
To say it’s been a bitterly dejecting Ashes series for the home side would be a massive understatement. Heading into the highly coveted Ashes series with a 14 match winning spree in their kitty, England have massively overwhelmed, failing to win a single encounter across the ODI and test series.
After being decimated in the ODI series, being swept apart by Australia 3-0, England headed into the test match looking to register a must needed win for themselves. However with rain intervening and England’s spin duo proving to be extremely ineffective, allowing Australia to pile up a humongous score, Australia decided to play out a draw. It saw the two sides share 2 points from the single test match scheduled, seeing Australia retain the Ashes trophy courtesy of an uncatchable 8-2 lead.
And ever since then, the side has come under massive flak for disappearing during one of the most momentous occasions in the women’s cricketing fraternity for the side. They have massively underachieved across the course of the four matches held till now and will be looking to turnaround their misery once the T20 series commences today.
Elsewhere, despite having retained the series, for Australia the intent is not going to decrease in the three match T20 series. The team have reaffirmed their intention to sweep this series as well and will come hot off the blocks when the two sides square off against each other today in as series which holds plenty of promise in it.
EN-W vs AU-W Probable Winner
Given the way England have unravelled, we have to give Australia the likelier chance of emerging from this encounter as the winners. They have by far been the better side over the last one month, winning with ease as they went onto outshine the hosts in both the departments of the game. England should play more freely today and imbed a better performance but the strength of Australia’s line-up is going to be too much for them to handle.
Probable Playing 11

Pitch Conditions And Toss
Expect this to be a good surface for batting, one where the runs will come by easily. The surface should offer something to the pacers with the new ball but once you settle into your groove, rummaging the boundary will be an easy task.
Wicket-Keepers for EN-W vs AU-W Dream11
The two wicket-keepers come into our side here with us opting for one from either side. While its Alyssa Healy from Australia, we are going to select Sarah Taylor from England given her recent showings in the T20s against West Indies prior to this series.
Batswomen for EN-W vs AU-W Dream11
The first bat we are getting into our side here is someone who is yet to play a single match for Australia. However after impressing for Australia A where she smashed her way to a 46 ball 71, T20 specialist and one of the most experienced player in the side, Elyse Villani is bound to be selected for today’s match.
“I’m excited about getting into the T20Is,” Elyse Villani said. “It’s always a massive challenge playing there in front of their home crowd, but the girls have been in outstanding form leading into this first T20 so hopefully we can continue that,” she added.
Pairing her up is going to be the ever reliable Beth Mooney while we have gone in with a two bat partnership from England as well. Coming in from the side is captain Heather Knight and Tammy Beaumont, one of the cleanest hitters of the ball who reclaimed her spot in the side after blowing WI apart in the 1-0 T20 series win.
All-Rounders for EN-W vs AU-W Dream11
With their being heavy talk of Ellyse Perry being elevated up the order for this one, she comes into our side straightaway. She’s going to bowl her quota of overs out as well, making her an indispensible pick for not only Australia but our side as well.
Elsewhere from England we have the dauntless Natalie Sciver. She’s waged a lone battle despite seeing floundering performances all around her and expect her to put in another stunning showing with both the bat and ball today as well.
Bowling Order for EN-W vs AU-W Dream11
Spinner Sophie Molineux has wrecked havoc in England’s ranks throughout the past month and don’t expect this to change anytime soon. Her guile and trickery have left the English bats perturbed and we are going to be pairing her alongside pacer Megan Schutt for this match.
Elsewhere the lone pick from England is off rank turner Amy Shrubsole.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Perry has been made our captain for this encounter while Sciver is handed out the vice-captain’s role.
