England comfortably won the first two matches of the T20 series 2–0. England will do something to give the rest of their team members a chance in this match but will try to clean sweep the series against arch-rivals Australia. The Australian team lost the toss as Ian Morgan’s favorite, with the Australian series losing. Australia were comfortably defeated by 6 wickets in the second match after losing the opening match from a strong position. We cannot consider this match as a dead rubber as no competition between England and Australia can happen without a spark in the ground.
English opener Jose Butler (77 * runs) was the star with the bat last night as he batted during the undefined innings for the chase. David Malan (42 runs) shared an 87-run partnership to set the stage with good company. He completed the chase despite a two-time hiccup in the last 4-5 overs.
The England bowlers were right from the start in terms of money as they reduced Australia to 30/3 in the power play. Jofra Archer, Adil Rashid, and Mark Wood took one wicket each, while Chris Jordan showed his wicket taking 2 wickets.
Australia’s top order was blown away by the England batsmen as they lost three wickets within 5 overs. Aaron Finch (40 runs) and Marcus Stoinis (35 runs) took their time to recreate the innings. His middle order crawled to 157, with Maxwell, Ashton Egger and Cummins making short cameos when he was out.
Mitchell Starc upset the batsmen at a fast pace and was fortunate to dismiss Bairstow as a hit-wicket. Ashton Agar was brilliant with the ball 4–0–27–2 and claimed the wickets of David Malan and Tom Layton. Adam Zampa was given a lot of runs in both matches.
Southampton has much sunshine and bright weather and we expect rain to be expected for this match and no appearance as per the weather forecast.
Southampton has a good balance between bat and ball. Once set, batsmen will enjoy batting here. The bowler will be seen taking the ball faster. We expect a good performance in this match with an average of 160 runs.
Chasing here is the best option as the pitch is expected to be the same in both innings. We expect both teams to win the toss first.
England vs Australia, 3rd T20 Today Match Prediction
England have been fantastic on the field with changes in their field placements and bowling. The bowlers have responded to their captain’s call brilliantly. There is one hell of a T20I team in England with attacking batsmen in the top-4 and good depth in the batting and bowling department. Australia relies heavily on their openers in the batting department. Their bowling attack has not performed as a unit with one or two bowlers and has scored many runs. We expect England to win this match.
