The time has come for the Women’s Ashes as the Australian women’s team prepares to face arch-enemy England in the first T20I on Thursday. Here is our Dream11 prediction for AU-W vs EN-W match
Australia women will take on England women in the first match of the three-match T20I at the Adelaide Oval on Thursday, January 20. Both sides look formidable on paper, and so it promises to be a cracker of a competition.
The Aussies will miss batsman Beth Mooney, who has been brilliant for them and has scored tons of runs down the order. She recently suffered a blow to her jaw during a nets session and was replaced by Grace Harris on the team.
Harris plays for Brisbane Heat (W) in the Women’s Big Bash League (WBBL) and has recently been rewarded for scoring runs for the Heat. The inclusion of Harris in the squad was no surprise as the Australian management has been going for similar replacements in the past.
Meanwhile, England captain Heather Knight has urged her players to play with fire and not hold themselves back regardless of the circumstances. England will be relying heavily on their captain, Nat Sciver and Danny Wyatt, to dismantle the Australian bowling attack.
