England and Australia will lock horns in the third T20 of the three-match series at The Rose Bowl in Southampton on Tuesday.
Australia have been outplayed in almost every single department and why won't they be! It is not like the visitors have been average but they did show moments of brilliance in pockets but that was not enough to beat this Three Lions side, who have gotten a fair bit of positive momentum ahead of the three-match ODI series. England have the T20 series in their pocket and we might get to see a couple of changes to the squad already.
Jos Buttler has left the biobubble and will rejoin the squad before the first ODI and skipper Eoin Morgan might sit it out as well because of the finger injury he picked up during the second T20 international. Australia might go unchanged or may one change but they will give everything in this final match to salvage some pride. A whitewash in the hands of England is definitely what they came looking for and boy, it hurts!
In the meantime, why don't you take a look at some of the brilliant and lucrative team markets that I have assorted for you to bet on?
This is not even a hunch of mine that I am banking upon as this is purely based on how robust England have been in recent times. Before the start of the series, I had mentioned that England are going to run away with this T20 series and they did in quite a fashion after their commanding victory in the second T20 international series as well.
Coming into this series, Australia might have had a better form in this format of the game 4 wins from their last 5 T20 international games but England now have 5 victories from their last seven with the visitors still stuck at 4. England and Australia have played four times against each other at The Rose Bowl in Southampton and the hosts have won on 3 occasions.
In the last six meetings between these two cricketing giants, England have won 4 of them and that kind of re-asserts the dominance. The Three Lions and the Aussies have met on 7 occasions on the English soil and the hosts have won 6 of them.
With three wins in three against Australia in the last three head-to-head matches, England are definitely going to win this battle making it four in four. Betfair Exchange has odds of 2.00 for an England win and there lies your opportunity to win double the money!
England have been on top form as a unit and there's no denying that fact! Despite losing that last game by the barest of margins against Pakistan in the previous series, they have bounced back superbly in every aspect of the game to take the series from Australia.
When it comes to hitting boundaries, England have managed to hit 258 fours in 17 head-to-head meetings with Australia and the latter has managed to hit 222 of them in as many matches.
In the last 7 meetings between these two sides, England have managed 102 fours whereas Australia have managed 94 hits. While playing against each other at The Rose Bowl, England have smashed 76 fours and Australia have only 53 of them against their name. In two matches so far in this series, England have 33 fours to their name and, on the other hand, Australia have 24 of them.
So, you see in every single scenario, the hosts have gotten the better of the visitors when it comes to hitting fours. 888 Sport and Unibet, both, are offering the same odds of 1.95 for England to hit more fours in this forthcoming contest.
Australia may have been outplayed in almost every other department during this series but it seems that the race for sixes are going to remain in their dugout. Jos Buttler is missing the last T20 international and if Eoin Morgan misses out as well, then England will be without their two prolific hitters in white-ball cricket and that would mean - advantage Australia in this particular race.
In 17 head-to-head meetings, Australia have clobbered 120 sixes and the Three Lions have only managed 78 of them. In the last 7 head-to-head clashes, Australia have 51 sixes and, on the other hand, England have managed to hit only 38 of them. As you already are aware of the fact that England and Australia have collided on 4 occasions in the past and the former have 28 sixes, which is an average of at least 7 sixes per game, while the latter have only 16 of them against their name. In the ongoing three-match T20 series, Australia have clattered 10 sixes so far in 2 matches and England have 8 to their name in as many matches.
All these numbers have nicely guided us towards an almost guaranteed victory tomorrow night so, don't waste anymore time and jump to the 888 Sport or Unibet website as yet again they are offering the best odds of 2.25 for Australia to hit more sixes in the upcoming clash.
