Australia Women and England Women are currently engaged in an engrossing encounter at the Manuka Oval. After the first two days of the Test match, Australia have started to assert their dominance and it gives us a chance to give you guys the best AUS-W vs ENG-W match prediction ahead of Day 3.
Winning the toss, England asked their rivals to bat first and it appeared to be a masterstroke by Heather Knight. The English got off to a terrific start with the Aussies losing three wickets with less than 50 runs on the board. However, the incoming Meg Lanning, along with Rachael Haynes, managed to guide the hosts out of troubled waters and took them to a score of 212, where both departed in a matter of three balls. But Tahlia McGrath (52) and Ashleigh Gardner (56) scored half centuries to help them finish with a score of 337 at the end of the innings. In response, England got off to a bad start as well, scoring just 46 runs at the loss of three wickets. However, while her team faltered, much like the Men’s team, Knight (127*) managed to hold the fort down scoring a century. At the end of the second day’s play, England had managed to put up 235 on the board with eight batters back in the dugout. With Sophie Ecclestone (27) at the crease with Knight, we are in for a great game on Day 3. Keeping that in mind, we have collated the top AUS-W vs ENG-W head to head betting tips exclusively for you.
With a lack of player bets available in the market, we have picked out the best picks from the team markets. Place your bet on the below mentioned AUS-W vs ENG-W match prediction.
Looking at the scoreboard, it is truly surprising that the bookmakers have handed us such a market. England have managed to score 235 runs so far at the loss of eight wickets. What this means is that we have 32 runs to play with. If we look at the last four Test matches that these two sides have played, and we are going back to January 2014 for that, it becomes clear that the English tailenders do not tend to do too well in Australia. In the two innings in 2014, the last two partnerships lasted a mere nine runs in the first innings while in the second innings the number went up to 13. In 2015, while they did manage to score 37 runs for the last two wickets, the second innings yielded just nine runs again. 2017 showed us the same story with 31 runs coming off the last wickets before the match ended in a draw and we did not get to see the full second innings by the Lionesses. In 2019, it was the same again as the last two wickets could only account for 23 runs. So based on “recent form”, there has only been one instance when the English have managed to score over 32 runs. With the ball relatively new and some help from the conditions early on tomorrow, it is very unlikely that England will get to 267 runs. And with Parimatch offering odds of 1.87, I would say it is a relatively safe bet to make.
There is no questioning the talent that Heather Knight possesses. The England skipper averages an impressive 46.76 in Test cricket and against the Aussies she increases the number to 51.20. So it was absolutely no surprise to see her dominate the team from Down Under yet again. However, to see her score just her second Test century was a treat for every fan. So why have I asked you to bet over 251.5 runs for the ninth wicket partnership when I don’t expect them to score over 266.5. The answer is simple. It is because of who stands at the other end. One look at the numbers will tell you that Sophie Ecclestone averages an impressive 61 runs in her career. So why have I asked you to under the required number when it comes to the innings score. Because she has scored a total of 61 runs in her Test career so far. In four matches that she has played, she has batted just four times, that includes the current innings. In the other three innings she has scored a combined 34 runs. In fact, her unbeaten 27 in this match is her highest score in the longest format of the game. However, she is not a run scorer which means that it will be upto Knight to get the runs on the board as Ecclestone tries to stay on the crease at the other end. With Parimatch offering odds of 1.87 for England to score over 251.5 runs for the ninth wicket, it is a punt that is well worth taking.
