Pitch Report and Weather Conditions

Trent Bridge has not hosted a women’s Test in the last four decades. If we refer to men’s cricket, the pitches here are generally pretty good for batting. Seamers should typically get some movement with the new ball before things ease out for batters.

The weather forecast for Nottingham suggests the first day of the Test could witness some rain with  a 40% chance of precipitation. The remaining days should have mostly clear weather.

England Women vs Australia Women – Match Predictions

England have improved a lot as a side over the last couple of years in both bowling and batting departments. But Australia have better resources and will be hard to beat. Expect Australia women to win this Test.

Top Run-scorer First Innings

Nat Sciver-Brunt scored a brilliant 169 not-out against South Africa in their previous Test. She has 512 runs in eight Tests at 46 average. Back Sciver-Brunt to be England’s top batter at 11/4 (3.75). Beth Mooney scored a superb century in the tour match against England A women. Bet on her to be Australia’s top batter at 11/4 (3.75).

Our Prediction: Nat Sciver-Brunt to be England’s top run-scorer in the first innings at 11/4 (3.75).

Top Wicket-taker First Innings

Ellyse Perry could play a big role for Australia with her right arm seam bowling. She has 37 wickets from 10 Tests at an average of 19.97. Bet on Perry to be Australia’s best bowler at 3/1 (4.00). Sophie Ecclestone has 17 wickets in five Tests with two four-wicket hauls. You can back Ecclestone to be England’s top bowler at 9/4 (3.25).

Our Prediction: Ellyse Perry to be the top wicket-taker for Australia in first innings at 3/1 (4.00).

Player of the Match

Ellyse Perry has a remarkable record in Test cricket with 752 runs at an average of 75 while picking 37 wickets at 19.97 apiece. Perry is a good bet to be the player of the match at 9/1 (10.00). Other top betting options include Beth Mooney, Ashleigh Gardner, Nat Sciver-Brunt and Heather Knight.
