ENGW vs AUSW Team Previews

England Women

England must be even shocked at themselves after winning three games in a row against a tough Australian side, especially as the Aussies were the bookmakers’ favourites in every contest.

England’s bowling and fielding in the first ODI match left something to be desired, as the team dropped 7 chances throughout the game and allowed Oz to score 263 runs.

Cross was quite expensive in her six overs after finishing with 1/42 (ER: 7.00) and Ecclestone performed below standards with 1/58, but we were impressed by Bell (2/56) and Sciver-Brunt (2/38).

\It must be said that England’s batters certainly saved the day here, as they were chasing a giant total against one of the best bowling squads in the world. Dunkley was a disappointment with only 8 runs, as she usually averages 30.16 in ODI games, and we hoped for more from Wyatt after she scored 76 in the last T20 match.

Still, there’s no denying that England fought back well in the chase, with six players in double figures, including a fantastic 75* from Knight, which was much-needed as she had only six runs in the last two matches. Tail-ender Cross was also remarkable, as her 19 runs helped seal the win with only 11 balls remaining.

Australia Women

Australia is undoubtedly wondering how the team can improve, as they have destroyed England in every cricket format before this series on English soil. You have to think that the batting is still on point, as Mooney (81), Perry (41), and Litchfield (34) all looked good at the crease.

There are improvements to be made, as Healy is performing well under her ODI average of 36.26 and she scored just 8 runs here. Sutherland isn’t helping the middle-order batting, either, with only 32 runs combined in her last four matches. Mooney is doing all she can but there needs to be some help.

The bowling attack could use a shakeup, as despite Gardner shining with 3/42 and Wareham with 2/34, there were zero wickets taken from McGrath, Sutherland, or Brown. Perry was also very costly in her four overs after going 1/38 (9.50 ER). It could be that Sutherland is dropped for the next game, as her bowling and batting are lacking.

ENGW vs AUSW Toss Prediction

The ground has produced a fairly even number of results, with 14 wins from batting first and 15 wins from bowling first in ODI games. It may come down to how the captain feels on the day, but batting first is still popular, especially in T20 games.

Pitch and Conditions

The Rose Bowl's relatively level surface and rapid outfield make it ideal for batters. As a result, the games are often very high scoring, with average totals of about 255. Spin is slightly less effective on this pitch, although pacers who are familiar with the ground may have some luck.

ENGW vs AUSW Betting Tips

Right now, it’s hard to ignore the momentum of this English team, as the Aussies can’t seem to get their act together on foreign pitches. England is full of confidence and is getting fantastic contributions from almost all their team, but more importantly, someone new is stepping up in every game and this makes the squad so much more reliable.

Mooney is great for Oz, but if she has a bad game, then England can pounce on this opportunity and deal a heavy blow to Australia yet again. The Betway odds are still very appealing for England, and given that they’re playing excellent cricket and won three in a row, we’ll pick them again for the victory.

Bet on England to win.

    England To Win The Toss & The Match



Those are some pretty good odds for England, because if they continue to play like they've done in the last 3 games, then there's no reason why they can't earn another victory. Winning the toss would be a huge help, as they would likely choose to bat first.

  1. Betway


    Australia Women Top Bowler: Ashleigh Gardner



She had 3/42 in the first game, and although she had a couple of matches without a wicket, those odds are really good for a world-class bowler. Her ODI Economy Rate is 4.10 and she prefers this format, so it's a good bet to trust her in this match.

  1. Dafabet


    Top Batter England: Sophia Dunkley



Dunkley had a good half-century in the first T20 match, and we're still waiting for her to really break through. She averages 30.16 in ODI games, so her 8 runs in the first ODI match is well below her standards. She should be opening the batting again, so there's a good chance she'll score big.
