England vs Australia, 3rd ODI

The Big Picture

After succumbing to yet another defeat, their 15th in seventeen ODIs since January 2017, a beleaguered Australia would be hoping for a reboot to their fortunes in Limited-overs Cricket when they take on England in the 3rd ODI at Nottingham on June 19th.

Nothing went right for Australia in the second ODI at Cardiff, a venue which has historically not been kinder to them, their shock 5-wicket loss at the hands of Bangladesh 13 years ago is a case in point. Like that day, Aussies lacked venom and potency in their attack as Jason Roy’s 120 and Jos Buttler’s power-packed 91 off just 70 balls, lead the pomps to their highest ODI total against Australia- 8-342 in 50 overs.

The Aussies started their chase with a new opening pair in D’Arcy Short and Travis Head but soon found themselves in trouble, reeling at 4-110, when Stoinis (9) and Finch (0) departed in quick succession. Shaun Marsh (131), who was stroking the ball with death-defying ease desperately needed support from the other end, and while Glenn Maxwell and Agar chipped in with 31 and 46 respectively, it was never going to be enough for the Aussies, and when Plunkett nipped out Marsh and Paine in one ever, England’s victory looked imminent, and they eventually won the match by 38 runs, with Australia losing their last four wickets for just 12 runs. So, who will win ENG vs AUS? Let us delve into the bettings odds as part of our ENG vs AUS Today Match Prediction:-

Where: Trent Bridge, Nottingham

When: Saturday, June 19, 2018, 06:30 PM IST

Here’s a look at the top five fantasy picks as part of our ENG vs AUS Today Match Prediction:-

  • Aaron Finch (AUS): Part of the reason for Australia’s lacklustre batting display thus far has been the woeful form of Aaron Finch. A 19 in the first game was followed by a duck in the second one. Expect Finch to come all guns blazing in the ENG vs AUS 3rd ODI, and the odds in favour of him are 5/2, meaning a return of Rs 350 over a bid of Rs 100.
  • Jason Roy (ENG): Roy followed his 180 at the MCG with another whirlwind hundred against the Aussies, and the odds in favour of Roy doing an encore are 7/2, meaning a return of Rs 450 over a stake of 100.
  • Liam Plunkett (ENG): Plunkett accumulated figures of 4-53 in a high-scoring encounter and the odds in favour of him performing again are 7/2, meaning a return of Rs 450.
  • Shaun Marsh (AUS):- Marsh scored a brilliant 131 to lead Australia’s fledgeling chase and the odds in favour of him in ENG vs AUS ODI are 7/2, meaning a return of Rs 450.


As part of our ENG vs AUS today match prediction, the odds in favour of England winning the match are 8/15, meaning a return of Rs 153, while the odds in favour of Australia winning the game are 6/4, meaning a return of Rs 250 over a claim of 100.

Our Prediction: As per the odds and current form, the English team will start as favourites again for the 3rd ODI
