It has been a wonderful tri-series so far and the balance has tilted during the course of the five games. It is befitting that the 6th and the last league game has a lot in store. Host Australia Women would be playing England Women in a do-or-die game. If they win this game they level the points with India Women and make it to the final by virtue of a better run rate. A loss here would draw curtains upon their run in this tournament.
English girls can’t lose it by a big margin as this would spoil their run rate. The Australia side hasn’t had a great run in the tournament. They lost to England Women in the first game in the Super Over and suffered a big loss in their last game against India Women. England Women, on the other hand, has dominated since losing the first game in the tournament. With a lot in stake for the hosts going into this game, we expect it to be a thriller of a contest.

Meg Lanning’s side suffered a bad loss to India Women in the last game. Poor efforts with the ball led to the 7-wicket defeat for the side. With their backs against the wall, Lanning will want her side to bounce back and win the game. Their batters are looking in good form and the skipper would look at her bowlers to come up with a better show in the next game.
The side will look for a good start from openers Beth Mooney and Alyssa Healy. Healy has had a quiet tournament so far and the team needs her to get into form. Ashleigh Gardner and Lanning look in good touch with the bat. Down the order, Rachael Haynes and Ellyse Perry have also played decent knocks in the tournament and make the batting line-up look very strong.
It is their bowling attack that needs to deliver the goods in the next game after the poor show against India Women. Jess Jonassen and Perry will need to pick early wickets in the game after going for runs in the last outing. The side will need a good show with the ball from Megan Schutt and Delissa Kimmince against the strong English batting line-up.

Heather Knight’s side has surely looked the best team in the tournament with back to back wins in the last two games. They won it comfortably against India Women by 4 wickets in their last game. But the side can’t afford to be complacent and lose by a big margin in this all-important game.
Danielle Wyatt and Amy Ellen Jones haven’t been in the best of form and this is creating problems for the side. The openers have to deliver in the next game. Katherine Brunt, Natalie Sciver and Knight looked in good form so far and shall have to do the scoring in the middle.
In Fran Wilson and Tammy Beaumont, they have good finishers who have scored runs in the tournament. After a poor show in the first game, their bowlers have done a good job. Natalie Sciver is bowling tight lines and she will look for early wickets with her partner Sophie Ecclestone. Brunt and Knight also bowled well in the last game and along with Anya Shrubsole form a strong bowling attack.

The weather prediction for the game at Melbourne doesn’t look good and there would be heavy cloud cover with chances of rain. The conditions would be great for seam bowling and the batters are likely to find it hard playing their strokes. Any score over 140 runs would be a good one on this surface.
Junction Oval, Melbourne is one of those venues that offer good support to the bowlers as well as the batters. Bowlers get early movement off the surface while batters enjoy the smaller dimension of the ground that allows plenty of run scoring opportunities. We have seen several close games at this venue over the years.
It has been a tournament where the sides bowling first have gone on to win most games. The weather would be cloudy and batting would be a challenge. Hence we expect the skipper winning the toss to invite the opposition to bat first in the bid to restrict them to a low score.
The build-up to this game has been good and both sides would be under pressure. For Australia Women, this is a do-or-die game that they can’t lose in their bid to play the final.
For England Women,they can’t afford to lose the game by a big margin and hurt their run rate which may put them in a tight spot technically.
Australia Women are playing at home and the side has a batting line-up in good form and this will make them favorites going into this game.
