Read our quick thoughts
  • Although Australians would have a fair idea of the surface by now, the home-advantage that England have can play a crucial role in high-pressure matches
  • England have a better batting lineup, with almost everyone capable enough to hit the ball long and hard
  • With their middle-order not doing well, Australia seems to be a little too over-reliant on their top-order to deal the damage

ENG vs AUS Match & Analysis

Twice on this tour now have the three-lions managed to script a miraculous come back after being dead and buried. It happened in the first T20I of the tour when Australia looked all set to overhaul the target and then it happened again in the 2nd ODI of three-match series. This Houdini Act from England in the second ODI has left the series hanging in balance with the final ODI to go.

Australia will still be ruing that defeat in the opening T20I and will be hoping that they do not end up with a similar fate in the ODI series as well. The third and decisive match of the series is to be played on 16th September 2020 at Old Trafford Cricket Stadium, Manchester. Even dead-rubbers aren't meaningless when its England vs Australia. With series at stake, we expect adrenaline to be pumping hard in the upcoming match, which promises to be a cracker of a contest.

ENG vs AUS Team Previews


It wouldn't be wrong to say that England have developed a knack of bouncing back from the dead. They did so against Pakistan in the first test of the summer, followed it up with a remarkable win over the Aussies in the first T20I, and then produced a magical show in the 2nd ODI of the series. Only time will tell for how long they can keep doing this, but the experience gained from such victories is going to play a massive role in crunch situations and when the chips are down.

In the series so far, England haven't looked convincing at all. With only Ben Stokes missing as compared to the World Cup winning squad, England are certainly as close to their full-strength lineup as they can get. It's been surprising to see England's batting doing poorly, the department which arguably is their strength.

Contrary to how it was in the World Cup, England's opening pair has looked ordinary at best with Jason Roy and Jonny Bairstow both looking iffy at the start of their innings in the two matches. Even though Bairstow managed to catch-up with the run-rate in the opening match, his slow start certainly did put extra pressure on Eoin Morgan, who lost his wicket in a bid to catch-up with the required run-rate. Similar was the case with Joe Root in the second match as he scored a brief cameo at pedestrian's pace. Eoin Morgan and Sam Billings have done well in the two matches so far and they both will be looking to contribute more in the third match as well.

With the kind Jos Buttler was in the matches leading up to the ODI series, pushing him down the order hasn't proved to be a smart choice thus far. However, with Jason Roy and Jonny Bairstow having a history of doing well at the top of the order, Jos Buttler is unlikely to come out upfront. Even though England have a deep batting lineup with almost everyone in the eleven capable enough to score quickly, a lot depends on Jos Buttler for England to score quickly in the final overs. He hasn't fired yet and it is only a matter of time before he catches up with the law of averages and plays a valuable knock.

It was the pair of Adil Rashid and Tom Curran that laid the foundation for England's win in the second match. It was not with the bat, though. The pair demonstrated England's depth in the batting department, adding 76 runs for the ninth wicket. Tom Curran scored 37 off 39 before getting castled on the last over of the innings and Rashid contributed with a 26-ball 35. Tom Curran made a telling impact with the ball as well. Even though he failed to get a wicket, he bowled a frugal spell, giving away just 28 runs in his ten overs. Sam Curran, however, picked up three wickets and ended up with the figures of 9-0-35-3.

Eoin Morgan's captaincy has had a huge role to play in the way England made those above-stated comebacks. In the previous match as well, Eoin Morgan made an inspired change of bringing back Jofra Archer and Chris Woakes to bowl Australia out, and that is where England turned the game on its head. Woakes and Archer together picked up four wickets in the space of four runs and that partnership with the ball proved to be match-winning for England. Woakes and Archer both picked up three wickets each at the respective expenses of 32 and 34 runs.

There is no denying that England have got a terrific team on paper. In addition to that, they have the home-advantage, which could be a decisive factor in pressure-cooker situations. Having said that, their batsmen haven't really converted their on-paper potential to on-field results and that is what has hurt them so far. England have match-winners running through their lineup and even if only a few have a good day, beating England would be a steep climb.

Just as the case was in the T20Is, Australia's middle-order woes were rendered wide and truly open by England's prime fast bowlers. Even though it was a difficult pitch to bat on in the second ODI, the total that Australia had to chase was not challenging by any means whatsoever. In fact, there was a time when there appeared to be only one result possible, that is, Australia winning the match.

At 144 for 2, Marnus Labuschange and Aaron Finch seemed to have full control over the proceedings, with Australia needing 88 runs to win from over 19 overs. However, once Woakes got rid of Labuschagne, trapping him in front, the rest of the Australian batsmen struggled to even stay at the crease, let alone score. It was not the first time on this tour that Australia lost the match they seemed to have in their kitty.

Even though Aaron Finch and Marnus Labuschagne both played exceptionally well, they will be a tad disappointed that none of them owned it to see the chase through. However, considering that it was the same middle-order that got Australia out of a hole in the first ODI, not many would have expected Australia to lose even with Finch and Marnus both back in the hut.

Just like England, the problem for Australia has been their batting. David Warner just fizzled out after a brilliant knock in the opening T20I. While Aaron Finch, Marcus Stoinis, Glenn Maxwell, and Marnus Labuschagne have all done well, they have lacked someone to carry their innings through. Considering that, we expect Steve Smith to finally make an appearance in the third ODI. It's anybody's guess who he's going to replace, but given the way things have gone so far, we think Stoinis is going to sit out on Wednesday.

With Josh Hazelwood, Mitchell Starc, and Patrick Cummins to bowl inside the first fifteen overs, there would not be many days when Australia gets it wrong with the ball. This has been the case in the ongoing series as well. Hazelwood was brilliant in the first match and followed it up with a brilliant show in the second as well. It wasn't different for Starc and Cummins either. The trump card for Australia, though, has been Adam Zampa, who has played an instrumental role on a surface that is getting slower with every passing match. With his deliveries that don't really spin much, Zampa has managed to pick up six scalps in the series so far.

Everyone except David Warner and Alex Carey capable to roll his arm and Australia seem to be perfectly equipped with the bowling options. It was surprising to see Glenn Maxwell not bowling even a single over in the previous match considering the help Zampa, the other spinner was getting from the surface. In addition to that, Mitchell Marsh and Marcus Stoinis were both a little too expensive on the day.

Going into the upcoming match, Australia seems to be having a pretty simple equation to deal with. With bowling already doing well, Australia will need their batsmen to step-up. Aussies have no dearth on fire-power available in their batting lineup, at least on paper, but unless their batting replicates that on the field, things are not going to pan out well for the visitors.

ENG vs AUS Toss Prediction

Although it is a new surface, we expect it to get a tad slower as the match progresses. Even though dew is a factor, it is only going to come into the picture at the very end of the match. It is a high-pressure game and runs on the board could be of significant importance. Also, the fact that the first two matches were won by the team batting first is likely to play a role while making the decision at the toss in this match. Therefore, we expect the captain winning the toss to bat first.

Read our guide on toss predictions to learn how we analyze and come up with our tips.

Pitch and Conditions

Old Trafford Cricket Ground has had to deal with large numbers of matches being played in a short duration, leading to dry and deteriorated surfaces. Having said that, this upcoming contest is likely to be played on a brand new surface with batsmen likely to make merry. Generally, this venue produces a sporting contest between bat and ball, but a new surface would certainly mean advantage batsmen. Additionally, there are chances of dew to be a factor at the back-end of the match and that will be something that both teams will be wary of. The weather is predicted to be bright and sunny with no chances of rain. This should be yet another thrilling encounter in the series and the team batting first would want to put a total of at least 280 runs on the board.

ENG vs AUS Betting Tips

This is the last match before England's ODI summer ends and the players fly to UAE to play IPL. After winning one game each, the two teams have had a pretty similar series so far. Both teams are struggling with their respective opening pairs as well as the lower-middle orders. Not only that, but the two teams have also both had their bowlers do the bulk of the work so far. There are high chances of the surface playing a lot better on Wednesday and given that, batting will be a key. While both sides have pretty good batting units each, England seems to be a lot more settled team. They will be pumped with an inspiring win in the last match and will be looking to end their series on a high. There are a few other factors, which are likely to play to the hosts' advantage. For those reasons as well as the ones stated above, England are certainly better placed to emerge on top in the upcoming encounter and take the series 2-1.

Our Favorite Bets

  1. Betway


    Australia Opening Partnership To Score 50+ Runs

    Yes at 3.50


Although Australia's opening pair has been terrible so far in the series, it cannot be written off considering the sheer talent and experience the two batsmen have. While Aaron Finch has done a decent job up until now, David Warner has had tough luck considering the deliveries that dismissed him in the previous two ODIs. The surface in the third ODI is expected to be better than the one in the previous match and the ball should come onto the bat pretty nicely, especially in the opening overs. Considering that as well as the historical record of the two batsmen, there are high chances for this pair to put together a partnership of fifty or more runs. Besides, the boosted odds of 3.50 from Betway makes this bet even more enticing. Go for it!

  1. ComeOn


    To Score 50+ Runs - Marnus Labuschagne

    Yes at 3.25


Apart from Steve Smith, Marnus Labuschagne has arguably been the most consistent Aussie batsmen over the last two years. He has racked up hundreds in tests and has scored played useful knocks in the ODIs. He looked in superb touch in the two ODIs gone so far and would have been disappointed for not converting those starts to something big. He is a good player of spin and milks the bowlers easily for singles in the middle overs. With playing risk-free Cricket likely to be the need of the hour when he walks out to bat, we think that Labuschagne will easily march his way to a fifty by playing risk-free Cricket in the middle overs.

  1. Casumo


    Eoin Morgan - Total Runs (50 Overs)

    Over 27.5 at 1.83


Eoin Morgan has perhaps been England's most under-rated batsmen and has flown under the radar more often than not. His calm and sensible approach allows him to settle in before going for big shots. He has been in pretty good form leading upto this match and given that scoring a personal score of 28 or over shouldn't be a challenge for him. This appears to be a perfect bet for those looking to play it safe.

  1. 1xBet


    Match - Total Runs - Over 536.5

    Yes at 1.83


We expect this match to be played on a new surface that is likely to be something more in favor of the batsmen. As was the case in the first match, the first innings score of 280 was about par and that is likely to be the case yet again. Considering the fire-power two teams have at their disposal, a total of 537 or more runs should easily be scored in the upcoming match.

  1. 22Bet


    Both Teams To Score Over 250 Runs Each

    Yes at 1.664


With this match likely to be played on a new pitch, the bowlers shouldn't have as much advantage as they had in the previous match. In fact, the pitch will be similar to the one in the first match of the series. Although both sides have done pretty well with the bowl, scoring a total of at least 250 runs should be a challenge for any of the two sides. This is yet another excellent proposition for those looking for value bets.
