Match Details to Note
Match: Ireland vs Australia 3rd ODI
Date: July 28, 2023 (Friday)
Time: 3:15 PM IST
Venue: Clontarf Cricket Club, Dublin.
Ireland continued to show poor batting performance in the series so far. They have not won a single game in the ICC Women’s Championship cycle and have only managed to gather 2 points so far. Ireland’s middle order failed to impress and it will be even harder to face an Australian bowling attack with such a performance record. Gaby Lewis is the only player who successfully scored runs for the Irish side. She has scored 342 runs in 10 innings at an average of 38 including 3 fifties. The team just took 32 wickets in just 9 innings and they need to level up their bowling to give a fight against Australia.
R Stokell, Amy Hunter (wk), GH Lewis, Orla Prendergast, AN Kelly, L Delany (C), L Paul, Aimee Maguire, Cara Murray, Ava Canning, Georgina Dempsey, MV Waldron, L Little, Jane Maguire.
Players to watch out for:
The opener is the only player who has managed to score runs over an average of 30 in the series. She has scored 342 runs in 10 innings at an average of 38 including 3 fifties. She will be the player to look out for in the final game of the series.
The right-handed all-rounder is a young prodigy in Irish women’s cricket. She is just 21 years old and already achieved her national cap. She has played 14 women’s ODI till now and scored 2229 runs along with 4 wickets. She can turn out to be the most exciting player in the series.

Despite losing the series against England, the world champs persevered and came back strongly in the second ODI. Alyssa Healy’s recent play fell short of her normal caliber, as she only managed 52 runs in four games. Phoebe Litchfield, on the other hand, has been in excellent form, scoring 195 runs in 7 games at an average of 39. She is a key asset at the head of the order because of her reliability and capacity to turn starts into noteworthy scores. The brilliant all-rounder Ellyse Perry has moved up to the third spot in the batting order. Her achievements have been outstanding, accumulating 293 runs at an astounding average of 58.60 in just 6 innings. The presence of Beth Mooney in the middle order will surely present a big challenge for the home team. She has been in excellent form and currently leads the Australia Women in runs scored with 370 runs at an exceptional average of 74. Perry will be the Australia Women’s team’s best hitter. The gifted all-rounder Ashleigh Gardner, who has 15 wickets in just 7 ODIs at an excellent average of 14.40, will be the focal point of the Australia Women’s bowling assault.

Ireland vs Australia Toss Prediction
Teams defending the target have fared better in the nine ODIs. In 5 games, the side that bowls first has prevailed. The team that wins the toss should bowl first, with the first innings’ average score being lower than the second. With Australia, however, the outcome of the toss won’t matter.
Ireland vs Australia Pitch Report
Most of the day will be overcast. It will be between 13 and 20 degrees. 15-20 km/hr winds will be coming from the west. On the day of the game, it will rain. The pitch and outfield will be slow because it has rained all week. The seamers might receive some assistance, especially in the morning hours. In order to take advantage of any movement on offer, pacers must pitch the ball in the proper spots because the grass surface may also provide them an even bounce. Initially, spinners might not get much help, but as the game goes on, the pitch may deteriorate and provide some turn and grip for the spin bowlers.
Ireland vs Australia Match Prediction
As previously mentioned, the world champion Australia Women’s team outperformed Ireland Women, going undefeated in their matches. The Australian side appears to be in a solid position for the upcoming match thanks to an excellent batting order and a strong bowling lineup that outperforms the hosts. Due to the difference in talent and experience between the two sides, it can seem like a one-sided contest, similar to an exhibition match for Australian Women.
Australia is predicted to win the game with an odds of 1.01.
