Match Preview

“You can’t really ignore that it’s the old {enemy|opponent}, can you?”

Heather Knight has been on point. The “oldest” foes in cricket history, the top-two ranked sides and also the two pre-tournament favorites, England and Australia will resume their fierce rivalry at the highest level in the summit clash of 2018 ICC Women’s World T20 on Saturday (November 24).

England denied Australia a shot at the clean sweep in the T20I leg of the Ashes tour in 2017 but Australia got back at them by taking out the tri-series decider in Mumbai earlier this year. And it hasn’t been smooth sailing all along for either side in this tournament. Unexpectedly finishing second in their respective pools though meant they avoided the collision in the semis, at which stage they ‘d met in the 2016 edition.

However, both stepped up to the occasion and were clinical in dismantling their semifinal opponents, adapting better to the slow and gripping surface at Antigua that was hosting its first set of games. In back to back fixtures, Australia got the better of defending champions Windies who they lost to while aiming for the fourth successive trophy in 2016, and England, once again, swatted India aside in a low-scoring contest under lights.

England has shown no signs of missing two of their key members – Sarah Taylor & Katherine Brunt – from the World Cup-winning side. Left-arm spinner Kirstie Gordon has been the story of the season, entering the final as the leading wicket-taker between the two sides and famously bowling the game-changing over in the semi against India.

Natalie Sciver has stepped up commendably as the new-ball partner to Anya Shrubsole in the injury-forced absence of frontline pacer Katherine Brunt.

And so has wicketkeeper-bat Amy Jones, who played a vital hand in stabilizing England’s chase in the semis and eventually hit the winning runs en route her maiden T20I fifty.

Her counterpart, Alyssa Healy’s brisk starts at the top irrespective of the pitch, conditions, and oppositions have been pivotal to Australia’s journey so far. She has, perhaps, been the only consistent batter throughout the tournament with scores of 48, 56 *, 53 and 46, sitting atop the batting charts. She’s bagged Player of the Match awards in all four games she’s batted in and keeping Healy quiet would be a key agenda for England in the title clash.

England is searching for the second World T20 title, the one that’ll make them concurrent world champions for the first time since 2009. Australia is hunting for their fourth, but deep down it must be hurting to be the top-ranked side in both formats but have neither trophies in their cabinet.

It’s been a rare dry spell for Australia, one that shockingly started in 2016 WWT20 final and was prolonged by India in the 50-over World Cup semifinal the following year. The time for change is now.

What to expect: Unlike the two semi-finals which were played back to back on a two-paced track in Antigua, a fresh pitch will be on offer for the finale. Partly clouded skies expected on the game night but it still promises to be a full-length contest.

Team News

Australia: With Healy showing no signs of the concussion she suffered in the final league game against India, Australia has a fully-fit squad to pick from. Lanning & Co. are unlikely to tinker with their winning combination from the semifinal win against the hosts.

Aus Women’s Probable XI: Alyssa Healy (wk), Beth Mooney, Meg Lanning (C); Ashliegh Gardner, Elyse Villani, Rachael Haynes, Ellyse Perry, Sophie Molineux; Delissa Kimmince, Georgia Wareham, Megan Schutt

England: The 50-over champions might not have had one stand-out performer throughout the tournament, but have found different heroes with bat and ball every game. England too is e expected to field an unchanged eleven in the final.

Eng Women’s Probable XI: Danielle Wyatt, Tammy Beaumont, Amy Jones (wk); Natalie Sciver, Heather Knight (C), Lauren Winfield, Danielle Hazell, Sophia Dunkley Brown; Anya Shrubsole, Sophie Ecclestone, Kirstie Gordon

Did you know?

– This will be the third Women’s World T20 final between Australia and England. Australia has won on both previous occasions.

– Ellyse Perry needs one wicket to become only the second player – male or female – in the 100-wicket club in T20 Internationals.

What did they say?

“We’ve got great batting depth within our side. We’ve got Ellyse Perry at No. 7 and Rachael Haynes at No. 6, who have only been facing a couple of balls here and there. That’s one of our strengths. We want to use it as much as we can. If it’s not Alyssa’s day tomorrow, I’m sure someone else will step up.” – Meg Lanning.

“For me, I think the most pleasing thing, the two games we’ve had in this tournament that have been must win; do or die games, we’ve put in outstanding performances. We’ve been really clinical. Really sort of calm under pressure. Just done it in a sort of no nonsense way and gotten the job done. And that’s what tomorrow is about.” – Heather Knight.

Australia Women (From): Beth Mooney, Alyssa Healy(w); Meg Lanning(c), Ashleigh Gardner; Elyse Villani, Rachael Haynes, Ellyse Perry, Sophie Molineux, Delissa Kimmince, Georgia Wareham; Megan Schutt, Nicola Carey, Tayla Vlaeminck, Nicole Bolton
