England Tour of Australia 2022: Australia vs England – 3rd ODI Preview and Updates

England will fight to save face against Australia in the third ODI of the three-match series. The World Champions were routed in the first two games by a combined score of 72 runs. The Australians have been in excellent form in this series and would like to keep it up and win the series 3-0.

In contrast to England, Australia’s top order has performed admirably, which has been the difference between the two teams. England has a poor record in Melbourne, winning only twice in the last ten games. It will be fascinating to watch how the English players approach this game.

The 3rd ODI between Australia vs England will take place on November 22, 2022 at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, Melbourne.

Australia vs England

Australia vs England

Australia (Match Odds – 1.57):


Pat Cummins will rejoin the team after missing the previous game. He would be pleased with his team’s performance. They outplayed England in both games and will look to maintain that momentum. The team’s key players are in good form, and they will look to capitalize on this opportunity as they prepare for a long summer.

David Warner and Travis Head are in good form with the bat and will look to get the game off to a good start. Steven Smith, who played a match-winning knock in the previous game, anchors the middle order alongside Alex Carey and Marnus Labuschagne. Marcus Stoinis will also be expected to perform well in this game.

Mitchell Starc’s form is encouraging for the team, and he will look to take early wickets alongside Pat Cummins. Josh Hazlewood bowled well in the previous game and will look to do so again in the middle overs with Ashton Agar and Azam Zampa. Stoinis and Labuschagne supplement the team’s bowling options.

Full Squad:

Pat Cummins (c), Ashton Agar, Alex Carey, Cameron Green, Josh Hazlewood, Travis Head, Marnus Labuschagne, Mitchell Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, Steven Smith, Mitchell Starc, Marcus Stoinis, David Warner, Adam Zampa

Players to watch out for:

Steve Smith

Steve Smith was given the vice-captaincy in the second ODI and responded with the highest score of the match. He appears to be performing at or near his peak right now.

Adam Zampa

The 30-year-old spinner has seven wickets in this series so far. Even if there isn’t much turn in Melbourne, he’ll find a way to trouble England’s batters.

Mitchell Starc

In Saturday’s game, the left-arm pace bowler dismissed Jason Roy, Dawid Malan, Chris Woakes, and David Willey. He demonstrated that he still has the ability to be a match-winner in the field at all stages of an innings.

Possible Playing XI:

Pat Cummins (c), David Warner, Travis Head, Steven Smith, Marnus Labuschagne, Alex Carey (wk), Marcus Stoinis, Ashton Agar, Mitchell Starc, Adam Zampa, Josh Hazlewood

England (Match Odds – 2.40):


Jos Buttler will return from this game, and he will do everything in his power to avoid a whitewash. The inconsistency of England’s top order has made all the difference. The bowling attack must also take early wickets to put the Australians under pressure. Buttler can expect a strong performance from his batsmen in this game, as the Australians will come at them hard and make things difficult.

Jason Roy and Phillip Salt must perform well at the top, as their lack of form has hampered the team’s chances. Dawid Malan is in good form in the middle order, and he must form partnerships with James Vince and Sam Billings, both of whom performed admirably in the previous game. Buttler, along with Chis Woakes and Sam Curran, will have to do the heavy lifting down the order.

The bowling attack has not put the Australians under pressure. Chris Woakes and David Willey must bowl good new ball lines and take early wickets. Adil Rashid bowled well in the previous game and plays an important role. For the team to win, Liam Dawson and Sam Curran will need to perform well in the supporting roles.

Full Squad:

Jos Buttler (c), Moeen Ali, Sam Billings, Sam Curran, Liam Dawson, Chris Jordan, Dawid Malan, Adil Rashid, Jason Roy, Phil Salt, Olly Stone, James Vince, David Willey, Chris Woakes, Luke Wood

Players to watch out for:

Dawid Malan

After a three-ball duck at the SCG, the number three batter will be desperate to contribute a big score at the MCG after missing the T20 World Cup Final due to injury.

James Vince

On Saturday, the stylish right-handed middle-order batter hit 60 runs off 72 balls. In his last four innings, he has three of his highest ODI scores.

Adil Rashid

The leg-spinner bowled a brilliant four-over spell in the T20 World Cup Final at the MCG and will be thrilled to bowl on this pitch again in this match.

Possible Playing XI:

Jos Buttler (c & wk), Jason Roy, Philip Salt, Dawid Malan, James Vince, Sam Billings (wk), Chris Woakes, Sam Curran, Liam Dawson, David Willey, Adil Rashid

Australia vs England Top Team Batsmen

Our picks for Australia’s top batters are David Warner, Steve Smith, and Marnus Labuschagne. Warner scored 86 points in the first game of the series, and bookmakers predict him to have another big game in this ODI. On Saturday, Labuschagne scored 58 points in his seventh ODI.

With the bat, we recommend Jos Buttler, Dawid Malan, and James Vince for England. Buttler and Malan are both excellent white ball batters and have equal top odds with the bookies. Vince struggled with international cricket in his early years, but has fared much better in the last 18 months.

Australia vs England Top Team Bowlers

We believe Josh Hazlewood, Mitchell Starc, and Adam Zampa will be Australia’s top bowlers. Hazlewood dismissed two of England’s top four batsmen in the second ODI and is the betting favorite to be Australia’s leading wicket-taker. Zampa is by far Australia’s best spinner, with 123 wickets in this format.

Our bowling picks for England are Sam Curran, Adil Rashid, and Chris Woakes. Curran was named Player of the Series in the T20 World Cup, and bookmakers believe he will be England’s best bowler. Rashid did not have a lot of wickets in September and October, but he has seven in his last four games in November.

Australia vs England Head to Head

Australia has defeated England in five of their last seven games, including all three One-Day Internationals. In this format, the hosts have a 23-game lead over England.

Australia vs England Toss Prediction

The team chasing the score has won four of the last five games at this venue. When the conditions improve in the second innings, the surface is ideal for batting. In the first innings, the underlying moisture provides movement to the bowlers. The team that wins the toss will almost certainly choose to bowl first.

Australia vs England Pitch Report

The Melbourne Cricket Ground has a good batting surface, and batsmen can play their strokes freely on it. Fast bowlers benefit from the wicket with the new ball as well. Spinners have done well here because the large ground size protects them from big shots.

On November 22, there would be a thick cloud cover over Melbourne, making batting conditions difficult. Because so much cricket has been played in the last few months, the wicket is expected to be slow. The team batting first would be content with 300 runs in this game.

Australia vs England Prediction

In both games, England took the wrong approach. They lost from a strong position in Sydney, which will be felt by the players. For the side to be comfortable, their top order must deliver a good start. The Australians are familiar with the conditions and have a strong top order. It will make them the game’s favorites. Check out the odds at Cricbaba!

Australia is the favourite to beat England at the odds of 1.57.

Australia vs England Most Recommended Player for Bet:

Steve Smith has scored 80 not out and 94 in the first two games of the series, and he is our pick to be Australia’s highest run scorer in this match.
