England have already sealed the series after registering victory in the second T20I at Rose Bowl, Southampton With that win, the English team have drawn level with Australia’s rating points (273) on the ICC T20I rankings as well.
Now their next target would be to clinch the top spot by winning the third game on Tuesday (September 08) in Southampton.
Australia, on the other hand, will be in search of their first win on the tour. This will help the visitors to build a momentum ahead of the ODI series, starting from September 11 in Manchester. Also, by defeating England in the third and final T20I of the three-match series, Aussies would be able to hold on their No.1 position in the rankings.
England vs Australia, Probable XI:
England will enter the third game with a forced change as Jos Buttler has left the biosecure bubble citing personal reasons. Sam Billings will be most likely to replace Buttler. In that case, Tom Banton would be promoted up the order.
During the second game, English skipper Eoin Morgan dislocated his finger. If he fails to make into the playing XI, then both Billings and Joe Denly will feature in the team with Moeen Ali captaining the side.
Probable XI: Jonny Bairstow (wk), Tom Banton, Dawid Malan, Eoin Morgan (c), Sam Billings, Moeen Ali, Tom Curran, Adil Rashid, Jofra Archer, Chris Jordan, Mark Wood.
Australia looked clueless in both the games, so there could be some changes. Wicket-keeper batsman Alex Carey has been a disappointment and if Aussies are looking to give youngsters a chance then uncapped Josh Phillipe might come in the side.
Kane Richardson, who has been ineffective so far, can be replaced by Josh Hazlewood. Australia have shown trust in Marcus Stoinis so he might get another chance.
Probable XI: Aaron Finch (c), David Warner, Steve Smith, Glenn Maxwell, Josh Phillipe (wk), Marcus Stoinis, Aston Agar, Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood, Adam Zampa.
