Match Preview

AUS vs ENG: The third and final T20 international of the England tour of Australia 2022 will be played on 14th October 2022. The game will be hosted in Canberra. The visitors, England, have sealed the 3-game series by 2-0.

Australia lost both games chasing. They fell short of 8 runs in both matches. They were outplayed in the first game completely. But, the Aussies were in control initially in the second T20 international. Batting first, England was struggling with 54/4 under 9 overs. However, Australia let the momentum slip as Dawid Malan’s heroics took England to a total of 178 at the end of 20 overs. 

England bowlers derailed Australia’s innings as both openers were sent packing in the powerplay. Mitchelle Marsh and Tim David made a good effort in the end, but not enough. Sam Curran was England’s best bowler. He finished with 3/25 of his quota of 4 overs. As a result, England has successfully defeated the hosts and will eye a clean sweep in the third and final game before heading to the T20 World Cup.

Pitch Report for AUS vs ENG

The second game was played at the same venue. The initial phase was difficult for the batters as the pacers got movement. Hence, the same conditions are likely to play out in the third game as well. Anything above 160 would be a par score on this surface. Bowling first would be the preferred choice for the captains. 

Probable Playing XI


David Warner, Aaron Finch (captain), Mitchell Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Tim David, Matthew Wade (wicket-keeper), Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Adam Zampa, Josh Hazlewood


Jos Buttler (captain/wicket-keeper), Alex Hales, Dawid Malan, Ben Stokes, Harry Brook, Moeen Ali, Sam Curran, Chris Woakes, Chris Jordan, David Willey, Adil Rashid

Match Predictions for AUS vs ENG

England is the probable winner of this game. They have edged past Australia by holding nerves in two consecutive games. To be fair, many Aussies are making a comeback post-recovery from respective injury concerns. However, time is running out as this will be Australia’s last game before the T20 World Cup begins. Hence, both teams need to be on their toes for this fixture. Overall, another close encounter is on the cards for sure.
