Australia v England

Australia, favourites for the World Cup and holders, have had their wings clipped by England. They are 2-0 down and the series is lost.
It will be interesting to see how that focuses their minds. They don’t like to admit it but the Aussies hold England up as the barometer in this format.
They have, at least, cut australia vs england cricket bettingAustralia v England Third T20 Tips： Inglis worth an interest at 11／1 the chord with Steve Smith. They just need Glenn Maxwell to get quick runs to not go backwards. Josh Hazlewood, Pat Cummins and Mitchell Starc returned in Geelong and were pricey. Cummins’ bowling has been an issue for a while but he’s probably undroppable.
Australia must consider whether to give a run out to the likes of Josh Inglis and Ashton Agar who have been kept on the sidelines.
Probable XI: Warner, Finch, M Marsh, Maxwell, Stoinis, David, Wade, Cummins, Starc, Zampa, Hazlewood
England will be delighted with their work. They have settled on their opening partnership, Dawid Malan has reinforced his claim on the No 3 spot and the bowling attack picks itself.
Sam Curran looks to have wrestled death duties from Chris Jordan alongside Reece Topley and Mark Wood can be used as an enforcer in the middle overs. Wood, being carefully managed, may sit this one out again.
The only issue is Ben Stokes, who has produced two dreadful innings. Most franchise followers will know Stokes is not a T20 player and shouldn’t really be in the squad. But Liam Livingstone is still not fit and is the only player who can displace him.
Probable XI: Buttler, Hales, Malan, Stokes, Brook, Moeen, S Curran, Woakes, Jordan, Rashid, Topley
The Canberra surface looked a little slow for the second match and although we enjoyed an overs win on runs, it was a bit too close to call. Another 40 overs – likely on the same surface – may not assist in rungetting. Australia were skinny favourites the break in a chase of 178 and it was noticeable how they struggled. It might pay to go unders this time on the par line.
Australia are and England . Go figure. Before game two this was a choice affair. England, then, are underrated for some reason.
There is a toss bias historically, although it didn’t do much good for Australia. Only eight from 19 have been won by the side batting first so it will be interesting to see what happens at the toss.
Presumably Australia’s first-choice attack is reckoned to be better for the run but we expect England to at least flip the odds. Bet the match odds here.
Inglis is not expected to play but if he does he is likely to open. So Sportsbook’s 11/1 is worth an interest for top Aussie bat. Jos Buttler has been boosted to 13/5. David Warner is also upped and goes off at 11/4. Dawid Malan is cut back to 7/2 and Stokes pushed out to 6/1.
Curran, who should have been man of the match for his bowling performance, is 16/5 for top England bowler and 17s for the match gong.
australia vs england cricket bettingAustralia vs England 3rd T20 Betting Tips： Whitewash on the cards for the tourists
England look to be in fine fettle heading into the impending World Cup and have already wrapped up this series with a 2-0 lead, after their second straight eight run win. Can they win their first T20 series whitewash since June 2021? We’ve previewed the third T20 in Canberra and given you our best two betting tips.
Australia vs England 3rd T20 Tips
England to win – 21/20Sam Curran top England wicket taker – 9/2This match is and feels like a dead rubber, given that England have an unassailable lead going into the 3rd match. However, there are still spots up for grabs in both teams and both sides will be looking to refine their starting XI.
For Australia, Tim David has firmly cemented his place in the team with recent starring performances and is capable of providing the x-factor that perhaps the batting order has lacked in recent years. The starting XI in the second T20 will more than likely be the one that faces up against New Zealand, at the start of the Super 12 stage of the tournament on the 22nd October.
The one dilemma they may face, however, is whether to go for Glenn Maxwell or Steve Smith at 4 – both men are terribly out of form and neither has claimed the spot. Maxi has scored 51 runs since June with a best of 26, whereas Smith is facing his own demons in the shortest format and is without a T20 50 since November 2019.
I mentioned Ben Stokes in my last preview and his batting form in this format remains a huge concern – especially with the likes of Phil Salt waiting in the wings. His bowling and fielding were superb in the 2nd T20 though.
The bowling looks fairly solid with Sam Curran now establishing himself as the premier death bowler, with a superb 3/25 in his last outing.
Australia possible XI: David Warner, Aaron Finch (capt), Mitchell Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Tim David, Matthew Wade (wk), Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Adam Zampa, Josh Hazlewood
England possible XI: Jos Buttler (capt & wk), Alex Hales, Dawid Malan, Ben Stokes, Harry Brook, Moeen Ali, Sam Curran, Chris Woakes, Mark Wood, David Willey, Adil Rashid.
Cricket Betting Odds
England to win – 21/20
The tourists appear to be peaking at just the right time. After a demolition of the Netherlands, England lost back-to-back home series against India and South Africa – unthinkable for the quality in this team. A great series win against Pakistan got them back on track and they appear to have carried that momentum into their adventures down under. The belief is back amongst the squad and everyone is contributing.
England are now 2nd favourites for the T20 World Cup and on recent evidence it’s well justified. I’m expecting another win here to send them into the tournament in high spirits.
Sam Curran top England wicket taker – 9/2
Sam Curran demonstrated just why he had australia vs england cricket bettingAustralia v England Third T20 Tips： Inglis worth an interest at 11／1 been retained on a full central contract in Canberra on Wednesday morning. The 24-year-old bowled with control, guile and variety and his dismissal of dangerman Tim David wasn’t just a lesson in planning, it probably won England the game. The 9/2 on offer, for a man who it appears will be consistently handed the ball in the final overs, looks great value.

It’s no exaggeration to suggest this is the most important game of the tournament so far.
Yes, they don’t come any bigger than India v Pakistan, but that was the opening match for both sides, who then had a chance to recover if they lost.
For both England and Australia, with two matches under their belts, and a loss apiece in one of those two games, they’re quickly approaching do-or-die territory.
And it could have been even worse for Australia.
During their chase of a par score against?Sri Lanka, they were going nowhere fast with opener David Warner out, Mitch Marsh soon following him after a couple of big hits and Aaron Finch struggling for rhythm.
At this stage Australia reached odds of around 1.6 in Live Betting, so if you’d followed our advice of backing?Australia against Sri Lanka?at any odds above 1.5 in-play, you would have secured a somewhat decent profit.
Of course, in the end they had?man-of-the-match?Marcus Stoinis to thank for not just winning the game but winning it extremely comfortably in the end.
Crucial in improving their net run rate.
His brutal 59 off 18 is right there as one of the most dominant displays of batting we’ve seen for a while and broke plenty of records in the process.
To put things into context: he hit 10 of the 18 balls he faced for either fours or sixes and took just 22 minutes to make that 58.
And that’s arguably Australia’s strength: that middle-order of Marsh, Maxwell, Stoinis, David and Wade is going to fire more often than not.
And if one of them doesn’t get you, one of the others generally will.
England’s defeat to Ireland has given Australia a decent chance of still qualifying from the group.
But defeat would probably mean the end of the road for them in a tournament where going into it they were defending champions, hosts and pre-tournament favourites.
Spinner Adam Zampa missed the win over Sri Lanka with Covid but as per ICC rules, is available to play here if Australia choose so.
And now keeper Matthew Wade got Covid.
He should be able to play anyway but with no reserve australia vs england cricket bettingAustralia v England Third T20 Tips： Inglis worth an interest at 11／1 keeper in the side, it will have to be David Warner or Glenn Maxwell taking the gloves if Wade isn’t available after all.
