Australia go up against England in the third T20I on Friday, October 14, 2022, at Manuka Oval in Canberra. The match will start at 1:40 PM IST (Indian Standard Time). 

Australia were sloppy in the field in the second match of the series, costing them the match. Glenn Maxwell has failed to create a much positive impact in this series while their pace bowling trio of Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood haven’t fazed the English batters one bit. With this being the final competitive game before the T20 World Cup, Aaron Finch and co. will be keen to put a foot in the right direction.

England, meanwhile, followed their emphatic series win in Pakistan by taking an unassailable 2-0 lead in the ongoing T20I series down under. Dawid Malan, Jos Buttler and Sam Curran’s form will be a huge relief to the Englishmen ahead of the mega event. Moeen Ali, who is set to make his 65th appearance, is 13 runs away from 1000 runs in T20 internationals for England.

Australia's top picks and players to watch out for the 3rd T20I vs England

David Warner: The southpaw seems to find his rhythm in the first match of the ongoing series. Warner smashed 73 runs off 44 balls which included eight fours and two sixes. Warner was the Player of the Tournament in the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021 and has since remained one of the top openers in this format.

Mitchell Marsh: Australia’s no. 3 batter has shown his class in both matches in this series. Marsh has registered scores of 36 and 45 in the two games, making him the top run-getter for the hosts against England this series. Marsh has picked up 15 wickets in T20Is as his pace variations and hard length make it difficult for the batters in the middle overs.

England's top picks and players to watch out for 3rd T20I vs Australia

Dawid Malan: The 35-year-old was adjudged the Player of the Match in the last match, courtesy of his 49-ball 82-run knock which helped England post 178 runs on the scoreboard. Malan has an impressive average of 39.73 and a strike-rate of 138.96 in this format for England across 50 matches. Malan is the anchor of the English batting in this format.

Sam Curran: The English all-rounder’s bowling exploits have come to the fore in both matches this series, with his spells being crucial in winning the games for England. Curran has picked up five wickets in two games while maintaining a healthy economy rate of 7.50 considering the high-scoring nature of this series. Curran can also land some mighty blows with the bat towards the final five overs. 

Australia vs England 3rd T20I prediction

Despite back-to-back defeats against England, the Aussies have a higher chance of winning the third ODI, thanks to home advantage. The Aussies have won nine of the 16 T20 internationals this year and are expected to bounce back and win in Canberra.

England’s recent success in Pakistan along with their form in this series puts them in contention to cleansweep the Australian team. The odds are slightly against them, but the Englishmen are expected to be a mighty problem for the Aussies.
