England vs Australia Women: After a spectacular comeback by England, which defeated Australia in the first One-Day International in Bristol and will aim for a similar result in the second game at the Rose Bowl, the Women’s Ashes are finely matched at 6-6. England was struggling against Australia in the Women’s Ashes this summer after losing the lone Test match and the first T20. But Heather Knight’s team responded, going on to win the T20 series 2-1 and taking the lead in the ODI series by winning the first match in Bristol last time out. Therefore, England and Australia are now tied at 6-6 in the series, but there is still work to be done because the Women’s Ashes would be retained by Australia if they win either of the two remaining ODIs, the first of which is on Sunday in Hampshire.
The second ODI England vs Australia will take place on 16th July 2023 at the Rose Bowl Cricket Ground, Southhampton.

England vs Australia Women Pitch Report
The Rose Bowl Cricket Stadium pitch favors bowlers more than batsmen, and it is here that batsmen, particularly opening batsmen, suffer. Because the new ball moves a lot, fast bowlers here have enormous swings, which makes things very difficult for top-order batsmen. Fast bowlers can benefit from additional bounce on this field. For spin bowlers, the surface is also very helpful since it gives them a good turn and bounce. Although historically it has been an excellent place for batting because it is England’s quickest track, bowlers now predominate in most games.
England vs Australia Women Match Prediction
England was outstanding in the first of three ODIs in the Women’s Ashes, attaining their target of 263 with 11 balls left thanks in large part to captain Knight, who hit an unbeaten 75. They began out strong, scoring 84-1 in Gloucestershire, and that was their highest-ever run chase in ODI cricket. However, given how close it was last time out and Australia’s prior record of 41 wins in 42 matches, the match result market is best avoided. Instead, Mooney is a good pick to lead Australia in runs scored at the Rose Bowl based on player markets. After scoring 32, 22, and 61 not out in the T20 series, Mooney hit 81 not out in the opening ODI in Bristol. Mooney, who had two innings of 33 and 85 in the Test match, may be crucial to getting Australia back on track.
Australia is predicted to win the game at the odds of 1.62.
