AUS vs ENG Match Prediction - Oct 09, 2022

Although it’s not The Ashes just yet, there isn’t a cricket fan alive that doesn’t get thrills when seeing Australia vs. England. These two titans of the sport will face each other in a best-of-three T20 series in Australia.

England has just wrapped up a gruelling 4-3 T20 series win against Pakistan, while the Aussies defeated the West Indies 2-0 in a T20 series at home.

Both teams are in form and looking to win big before the T20 World Cup begins on October 16th.

AUS vs ENG Team Previews


It’s never a dull moment when Australia faces England in any cricket format, as here’s a rivalry that has lasted centuries.

After the Aussies defeated the West Indies in two T20 matches at home, there will be a few minor changes to the squad for the first battle against the English. Australian selectors have decided to rest the frontline bowling assault for only the first T20 match in Perth.

This is mainly to allow the bowlers time to recover from the West Indies contest, and to limit the capacity before the World Cup. This means that Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood, Adam Zampa, and Glenn Maxwell will all be rested for the initial matchup.

As a result, Ashton Agar, Marcus Stoinis, Kane Richardson, Mitchell Swepson, and Nathan Ellis will play as substitutes. This will be a huge chance for Swepson and Stoinis, in particular, as both have struggled with inconsistency but are definitely worthy of inclusion to the squad.

Stoinis is recovering from a side strain, and does appear to be fit for the matchup. Still, the recent great performances by Cameron Green will make it tough for Stoinis to be included in the World Cup starting 11, but you never know.

David Warner, Aaron Finch, Mitchell Marsh, Marcus Stoinis, Tim David, Cameron Green, Matthew Wade, Daniel Sams, Nathan Ellis, Kane Richardson, Mitchell Swepson.


England is bolstered by the return of captain Jos Buttler, who is simply Mr T20 when it comes to reliable and fantastic batting. Buttler has a solid average of 32.75 and has picked up 2,227 runs in 94 matches.

There’s a lot of excitement surrounding the inclusion of Harry Brooks, as here is a young and skilled batter that England will hope to rely on in the future. Brooks’ 81 runs, not out, against Pakistan in the third T20 match displayed his prowess with the bat and made English cricket refreshing once more.

All-rounder Moeen Ali is by far the X-Factor of this current English squad. He’s had nights of stunning batting and bowling, so if he can give his country the best of both worlds in three matches, then England has a massive chance to win.

We’re not sure what to make of Ben Stokes, as he’s great one day and poor the next, but he’s nevertheless a must-have in any cricket format for England due to his talent and experience.

AUS vs ENG Betting Tips

England has a huge advantage due to the fact that Australia is resting many of their key bowlers in the first match. While this could be seen as disrespectful to England, it's unlikely they'll care as long as they get the victory.

Picking up a win is never easy against Australia on their home turf, but as long as batters like Brooks, Mooen, and Buttler all perform well, then England can grab the first T20 game.

Bet on England to win.
