England v Australia 3rd T20I Predictions & Tips: England’s Top Batsman
Well, it looks like I am on a roll at the minute. On Friday I encouraged you to back David Warner as Australia’s top batsman and he was, then I told you to get on Jos Buttler as England’s top runs scorer on Sunday and he hit an unbeaten 77 as England sealed a series win with a six wicket success to lead 2-0 with one to play. So, the pressure is on me to deliver once again. Moving Buttler to opener and bringing back Dawid Malan to the England set-up has been a masterstroke, they both look confident and are having fun out in the middle. Buttler was my original pick to top score once again. but it has been revealed that he will not feature on Tuesday after he left the bio-secure bubble to go home to his family. This means Jonny Bairstow has a chance to redeem himself after a careless dismissal on Sunday as he knocked his own bails off with his bat. My tip for Tuesday will now be Malan to score the most runs, he already has 108 runs to his name and I’m backing him to considerably add to that total.
England v Australia 3rd T20I Predictions & Tips: Australia’s Top Bowler
Australia haven’t had much look with their pace bowlers during this series, Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins and Kane Richardson have only taken four wickets between them, while spinner Ashton Agar has taken that amount on his own. Agar has caused the England batsmen a few problems with the turn, and he will probably keep his place if captain Aaron Finch decides to change his team a little bit for the third and final T20 clash. Back Agar to continue to get the ball to move and take the most wickets for Australia.
England v Australia 3rd T20I Predictions & Tips: Most Sixes
The only real bright spot from Australia’s innings was that they managed to smash seven maximums compared to England’s three. Skipper Finch and Marcus Stoinis both hit two each, while Steve Smith, Glenn Maxwell and Cummins all contributed with one six apiece. Australia have nothing to lose in the third T20, yes, they don’t want to suffer a series whitewash, but expect them to come out swinging. I see another win for England on the field but I’m backing the tourists to once again knock the most sixes over the boundary rope.
