AUS vs ENG 3rd ODI Match Prediction & Betting Tips
Australia have already secured this series after comprehensive wins over England by six wickets in Adelaide on Thursday and by 72 runs in Sydney on Saturday. Read on as we preview this third day-night match. The last game of the series gets underway at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, the scene of England’s 2022 T20 World Cup Final victory last Sunday, at 14:20 local time.
Australia look like a side who are still disappointed by their early exit in the T20 World Cup and are channelling their disappointment into strong performances in this series. They have been excellent with bat and ball in both games.
England have had useful individual batting performances over the two games but have lacked a cutting edge with the ball in both Adelaide and Sydney. They will need to trouble Australia’s top order far more in this match.

Australia Team News & Playing 11
AUS Team News
There were two changes for Australia ahead of the second ODI with Josh Hazlewood and Mitch Marsh coming into the team and captain Pat Cummins alongside Cameron Green left out. Cummins will return for this match and we expect Ashton Agar to make way in the XI.
AUS Key Players
- Steve Smith – The number three batter was given the vice-captaincy in the second ODI and responded with the highest score in the match. He looks to be very close to his best at the moment.
- Adam Zampa – The 30 year old spinner has taken seven wickets so far in this series. Even if there is little turn in Melbourne, he will still find a way to trouble the England batters.
- Mitchell Starc – The left-arm pace bowler dismissed Jason Roy, Dawid Malan, Chris Woakes and David Willey in Saturday’s game. He proved that he still has the skills to be a match-winner at all stages of an innings in the field.
AUS Team Form
Australia have won each of their last five ODIs with wins over England and New Zealand.

ENG Team News
T20 World Cup winning captain Jos Buttler was rested for the second ODI of the series with all-rounder Moeen Ali returning to the team and captaining them in this format for the first time. Buttler will come back for this game with Phil Salt the most likely to make way.
ENG Key Players
- Dawid Malan – The number three batter made a three-ball duck at the SCG but will be desperate to contribute a big score at the MCG after missing the T20 World Cup Final at this venue through injury.
- James Vince – The stylish right-handed middle-order batter hit 60 runs from 72 balls on Saturday. He has scored his three highest ODI scores in his last four innings.
- Adil Rashid – The leg-spinner produced a brilliant four over spell in the T20 World Cup Final at the MCG and will be relishing the opportunity to bowl on this pitch again in this match.
ENG Team Form
England have won only one of their last five ODIs and are looking to avoid their third defeat in a row

Who will win Australia vs England 3rd ODI Match?
Australia have used a new captain in both games of the series so far and the team have responded well to both. The home team have looked fresher and more at ease in the conditions over the opening two matches.
AUS vs ENG Top Team Batsmen
David Warner, Steve Smith and Marnus Labuschagne are our tips for Australia’s top batters. Warner scored 86 in the opening game of the series and the bookmakers are expecting him to produce another big innings in this ODI. Labuschagne hit 58 on Saturday, his seventh ODI score of 50+.
We recommend Jos Buttler, Dawid Malan and James Vince with the bat for England. Buttler and Malan have equal top odds with the bookies and both are fine white ball batters. Vince struggled with international cricket in his early years but has been far more successful over the last 18 months.
AUS vs ENG Top Team Bowlers
We are backing Josh Hazlewod, Mitchell Starc and Adam Zampa to be the top bowlers for Australia. Hazlewood dismissed two of England’s top four in the second ODI and is the bookie’s favourite to be Australia’s top wicket taker. Zampa is Australia’s best spinner by a long distance and has 123 wickets in this format.
Sam Curran, Adil Rashid and Chris Woakes are our bowling picks for England. Curran was the Player of the Series in the T20 World Cup and the bookmakers are backing him to be the top bowler for England. Rashid did not pick up many wickets across September and October but has seven from his last four games in November.
Australia vs England Prediction
England have been completely outplayed by Australia in this series so far but we expect a closer game in this third ODI at the MCG. Although we predict that England will be more competitive, we also predict that Australia’s batters will be dominant again. Overall, we expect Australia to get the victory to clinch a 3-0 series win.
Australia are favorites to beat England at odds of 1.53
