Eoin Morgan’s England will take on Aaron Finch-led Australia in the third and final ODI with the series currently at the level at 1-1. The winner of the third ODI will take the series in addition to 10 vital points on the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Super League.
England won the second ODI on Sunday by 24 runs to level the three-match series after the visitors, chasing a modest target of 232, suffered a dramatic collapse. Earlier, Australia had made a solid comeback in the tour after winning the 1st ODI by a margin of 19 runs at the Old Trafford in Manchester,
Steve Smith missed the first two matches after being hit on the head by a ball in the nets last week and is expected to have his fitness assessed during a training session later in the day.
England vs Australia, 3rd ODI, Dream11 team: Jonny Bairstow, Sam Billings(W), Aaron Finch (captain), Marnus Labuschagne, Eoin Morgan, Glenn Maxwell, Sam Curran, Jofra Archer, Josh Hazlewood, Mitchell Starc, Chris Woakes
Jonny Bairstow and Aaron Finch have been among the runs for their respective teams throughout the series and will make for a solid opening pair of any Dream 11. Finch was the best batsman of the Australian side in the T20 series and his ODI numbers are brilliant as well. Marnus Labuschagne, Sam Billings and Eoin Morgan will fill in for No.3, No.4 and No.5 slot in the middle order. This trio should definitely be picked for this game.
Jonny Bairstow gets the nod ahead of his Australian counterpart Alex Carey for not just his stability behind the stumps but also for the loads of runs he has been scoring in the limited-overs format.
Chris Woakes, Glenn Maxwell and Sam Curran will take the three spots available for the all-rounders in the fantasy team for 3rd and final ODI. While Woakes and Curran are bowling all-rounders, Maxwell is a batting all-rounder.
The pace-attack of both teams are equipped with the best bowlers in the world right now. Watch out for Jofra Archer, Josh Hazlewood, Mitchell Starc, in the 3rd ODI at the Old Trafford.
