Pitch Report and Weather Conditions

The Rose Bowl in Southampton has been a pretty balanced venue, with something in it for everyone. There hasn’t been any women’s ODIs played here since 2006. In the men’s ODIs, the average batting first score reads 255.

Southampton could witness a couple of showers in the afternoon but it is expected to be clear in the evening. There’s around a 60% chance of precipitation so a shortened or delayed game could be on the cards.

England Women vs Australia Women – Match Predictions

Australia saw their 15-match streak come to an end in the first ODI but it should only fuel them to do better. They have lost the resources to bounce back after the defeat. England managed to pull off the win but only by a narrow margin and will need a better performance at Southampton.

Top Run-scorer

Beth Mooney has scored 852 runs from 16 innings in the last two years, averaging 122 at 97 strike rate. She’s coming off a 81-run knock and you can bet on her to be Australia’s top batter at 11/4 (3.75). Tammy Beaumont has been in great form, scoring 83* and 47 in her last two One-Day innings. Back her to be England’s top batter at 5/2 (3.50).

Our Prediction: Beth Mooney to be Australia’s top run-scorer at 11/4 (3.75).

Top Wicket-taker

Sophie Ecclestone has a superb record in the fifty-over format with 88 wickets from 56 ODIs at 3.72 economy. Bet on Ecclestone to be England’s top bowler at 5/2 (3.50). Ashleigh Gardner has taken 18 scalps in the last 11 games at 3.92 economy. Back her to be Australia’s best bowler at 13/4 (4.25).

Our Prediction: Sophie Ecclestone to be England’s top wicket-taker at 5/2 (3.50).

Player of the Match

Ashleigh Gardner has taken three wickets each in the last two ODIs. Add her batting to it and she is a top candidate for the player of the match at 9/1 (10.00). Among others, Beth Mooney, Ellyse Perry, Nat Sciver-Brunt and Sophie Ecclestone are top betting options.

Our Prediction: Ashleigh Gardner to be the player of the Match at 9/1 (10.00) odds.

England Women vs Australia Women, 2nd ODI Preview

With the points tied at 6-6, there’s everything to play for when the two rivals meet on Sunday. Let’s take a look at two sides before their encounter.


England women made history yet again as they defeated Australia by two wickets to end their 15-match winning streak. Chasing 264, Tammy Beaumont and Alice Capsey got them off to a flying start before England lost their way a bit. Captain Heather Knight scored an excellent 75 not-out to steer her side home.

Squad: Tammy Beaumont, Sophia Dunkley, Alice Capsey, Nat Sciver-Brunt, Heather Knight (c), Amy Jones (wk), Danni Wyatt, Sophie Ecclestone, Sarah Glenn, Kate Cross, Lauren Bell


Australia women would regret their missed opportunities and poor control with the ball in the first ODI. Beth Mooney starred with the bat, scoring an unbeaten 81. Seamers leaked too many runs in the first 15 overs before spinners brought them back in the game, however, it wasn’t enough.

Phoebe Litchfield opened the innings in the first game with Mooney batting at number four. Kim Garth could come in for Darcie Brown in this game.

Squad: Phoebe Litchfield, Alyssa Healy (c/wk), Ellyse Perry, Beth Mooney, Tahlia McGrath, Ashleigh Gardner, Annabel Sutherland, Jess Jonassen, Georgia Wareham, Megan Schutt, Kim Garth
