3rd T20I: AUS-W vs SL-W Dream11 Fantasy Cricket Tips, Playing XI, Pitch Report, Team And Preview


The third T20I between Australia Women and Sri Lanka Women takes place on Wednesday with the home side looking to complete yet another clean sweep in the shortest format. While the Sri Lankans did give a good account of themselves in the first game, they weren’t able to withstand the accuracy of the Aussie bowlers which saw them lose by nine wickets in the second T20. With the venue for this game also being the North Sydney Oval, Australia will look to continue their unbeaten streak in T20s as they prepare for next year’s T20 World Cup in their own backyard.

9:40 AM IST

Weather Report: 

Sunny weather with the temperature ranging around 16 degrees Celsius and no chances of rain is expected during the course of the encounter.

Pitch Report:

Another high-scoring game is expected with lots of runs and some turn on offer. While Sri Lanka did struggle against medium pace and spin in the second game, 160 still should be a good score on this surface.

Predicted Playing XI: 

Australia Women

Australia might make a few changes in order to give fringe players some game time. Although the batting department should remain the same, a couple of changes in the bowling unit with Heather Graham in line for some game time. Australia is the overwhelming favourites for this game and should bank on their opening pair of Beth Mooney and Alyssa Healy to lead them to another easy win on Wednesday.
Alyssa Healy, Beth Mooney, Meg Lanning, Erin Burns, Ellyse Perry, Rachael Haynes, Jess Jonassen, Georgia Wareham, Heather Graham, Megan Schutt and Nicola Carey

Sri Lanka Women

Sri Lanka will also be keen to rotate with the ICC T20 World Cup in 2020 in mind. Their fortunes depend heavily on captain, Chamari Athapaththu and Shashikala Siriwardene, who are capable of derailing the Aussies with bat and ball. The likes of Harshitha Madavi and Oshadi Ranasinghe will also be the key with the pitch being good for strokeplay.
Chamari Athapaththu, Anushka Sanjeewani, Harshitha Madavi, Shashikala Siriwardene, Yasoda Mendis, Nilakshi de Silva, Hansima Karunaratne, Oshadi Ranasinghe, Ama Kanchana, Sugandika Kumari and Udeshika Prabodhani.

Top Picks: 

Beth Mooney has a great record at the North Sydney Oval with the Brisbane Heat keeper already scoring a hundred in this series. Along with Alyssa Healy and Chamari Athapaththu, she is a must-have pick for this game. Ellyse Perry and Meg Lanning are two of the best batters in the world but haven’t done much in the series. While Perry’s two-wicket haul in the previous game does strengthen her case, Lanning should be backed if Australia is to bat first. Megan Schutt and Georgia Wareham are also very good options with the ball and should round the team off for this game.

Captaincy Options: 

1: Megan Schutt

2: Chamari Athapaththu

3: Alyssa Healy
