Match details

Australia Women vs England Women, Final, ICC

November 25, 2018, 5:30 am IST

Sir Vivian Richard Stadium, North Sound, Antigua


The Richards Stadium has hosted only couple of match in the World Twenty20 tournament. Both matches were semi-finals. One thing is clear - the pitch is low and slow. The spinners only need to turn. India were dismissed for 112 in the second innings. England then scored 112 runs.

Therefore, it is interesting to see two Captains decide to toss twice from the back-koom games twice. However, this ground was not a large slum plant. The average first innings score was 133. England have only won twice in semis.


Australia and England lost the second group point matches. Both teams have won semi-final matches. This is the third time that both teams will compete in the World Cup final.

Most of the matches are Australia's best. All their competitions stand on one side. Alyssa Healy was charged with the bat. The bowling attack was mixed together.

But England's ball was very good. Kirstie Gordon and Anya Shrubsole are the best bowlers. They have won all their matches and have broken the code of first bowling. However, they did not beat Australia in the final of the World Cup (50 over or 20 overs). Four times Australia lost two times (both in two formats), so they want to correct their old record.


Beth Mooney, Alyssa Healy (wk), Meg Lanning (c), Ashleigh Gardner, Elyse Villani, Rachael Haynes, Ellyse Perry, Sophie Molineux, Delissa Kimmince, Georgia Wareham, Megan Schutt


Danielle Wyatt, Tammy Beaumont, Amy Ellen Jones (wk), Natalie Sciver, Heather Knight (0), Lauren Winfield, Sophia Dunkley Brown, Anya Shrubsole, Danielle Hazell, Sophie Ecclestone, Kirstie Gordon

Possible Changes Both sides will not want to tinker with the winning side and are likely to go in with the same XI.


This was a hard choice. Alisa Healy and Amy Jones have performed well in this tournament. However, Healy is unusual and they lost to the match player every time they bat. Sania is the world's highest run-getter in the World Twenty20 with 203 runs in 4 innings.


Beth Mooney and Rachael Haynes also showed good performance. Haynes has been out once in the tournament.

Danielle Wyatt did not perform well in this tournament. However, she had good performance in Twenty20. Heather kinght did not get a big chance with  bat, but also took 3 wickets in the semi-final against India. England captain wants to make a footnote in the middle-order.

Alternative: Tammy beaumont for Heather knight


Ellyse Perry, and Natalie sciver Both are batting and ball. Perry was stronger with 8 wickets and 60 runs. But the score was the best batting. Sciver innings was 82 runs with half-centuries

Sophia Dunkley made his international debut in this tournament. 35 score in an innings.


Anya Shrubole and Megan Shcutt were the premier bowlers to the team. On average, the shcutt took 8 wickets at an average of 12.25. Shrubole has took seven wickets at an average of 8.28. Kirstie Gordon became England's former wicketkeeper in this tournament. In this tournament only the left-handed spinner made his debut.

Alternatives: Delissa kimmince for Gordon

Captain: Elise Perry

Vice Captain: Natalie sciver
