EN-W vs AU-W Dream11 : Australia look to finish off England as they look to sweep the T20 series as well in the final encounter of the Ashes series.
When the Ashes series had begun, this was touted to be the most competitive and feisty battle between England and Australia of all time. Unfortunately for not only England but ardent lovers of the game as well, this has shaped out to be a completely one sided series with Australia mincing out the hosts, trouncing them across all departments and formats of the game to take a 12-2 lead in the series.
Having failed to win a single match across the ODI and test series, for England women unfortunately, the aberration hasn’t improved in the T20 series either. They have not only been outshone but besmirched in the batting and bowling department, going onto concede this series as well. And it’s not just the fact that they have conceded an uncatchable lead in the series which would disappoint them but in the manner they’ve been put down, by 93 runs and 7 wickets which would perturb them more.
And as Australia head out to clinch a record winning Ashes series, one they can make their own by winning all the matches for the first time, expect England to come under massive pressure today as well. Australia will be relentless and ruthless, leaving no stone unturned as they look to be spoken in the same breath as some of the finest cricketing sides across the fraternity.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
With us having had two matches being conducted on this surface earlier, the one thing which has emerged clear from the series is the fact that this surface is going to play strongly in favour of the batsmen. The slight cloud cover will help the pacers in the early part of the innings but apart from that the batsmen will be richly rewarded for their strokeplay.
The side who wins the toss will be looking to come out and bat in this culminating match.
Probable Playing 11
Tammy Beaumont, Katherine Brunt, Kate Cross, Sophie Ecclestone, Amy Jones (wk), Heather Knight (c), Laura Marsh, Natalie Sciver, Anya Shrubsole, Lauren Winfield, Danni Wyatt
Alyssa Healy (wk), Beth Mooney, Meg Lanning (c), Ellyse Perry, Ashleigh Gardner, Rachael Haynes, Sophie Molineux, Jess Jonassen, Georgia Wareham, Delissa Kimmince, Megan Schutt
No matter how much we want to give a chance to the home side in this match, they just haven’t offered anything on the pitch. The side have made for dismal viewing, putting up howler performances on a consistent basis and with the side refusing to fill in the gaps, expect this to be yet another win for Australia who’ll go onto register another comprehensive win.

Dream 11 Picks
Wicket-Keepers for EN-W vs AU-W Dream11
Australia’s wicket-keeper Alyssa Healy continues to retain her spot in our playing 11. Amy Jones was bundled out for 0 the last time around and with Australia’s pace bowling dup being an impeccable one, we don’t see Taylor scoring big in this one either.
Batsmen for EN-W vs AU-W Dream11
Yet to be dismissed by England over the course of almost two months now, Meg Lanning had to become the first player who sprung to our mind when we started building out our team. She’s scored 333 runs this Ashes series, a bat who England have been persistently obliterated by and expect her to come up with another match winning show today.
Opener Beth Mooney comes in from the side as well while from England the two players we have opted for are Tammy Beaumont and Lauren Winfield after they have managed to come up with scores of 33 and 43 in what has been an otherwise horrid batting show.
All-Rounders for EN-W vs AU-W Dream11
Elyse Perry with 1-17 and 47 in the previous matches becomes a part of our side along with Ashleigh Gardner given the high position she occupies in the batting order. From England we have gotten in Katherine Brunt over here after Natalie Sciver has massively disappointed, failing to live upto the expectations accorded from her.
Bowling Order for EN-W vs AU-W Dream11
Her legspin has made for a treacherous variety for England’s heavy right-handed batting unit, one who have completely been flummoxed infront of the ball which moves away from them. She picked up 2-22 in the previous encounter, bowling an ominous line and length as she used all her guile and trickery.
Frontline pacer Meg Lanning comes in as well while from England we are getting in their best spinner, Sophie Ecclestone in for this one.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Meg Lanning continues to be our captain like always while Perry is our vice-captain.
