ENG vs AUS Dream11 Team: The two strong teams will be against each other to seal the series in their favour. The home side is upbeat after the chest-thumping win against the visitors in the 3rd ODI. Having already won the T20I series, they would like to end the English summer cricket season in a good way. The inclusion of the Curran brothers paved the way for the England team to make a comeback in the ODI series and make it 1-1. Apart from them, Adil Rashid helped the team to post a fighting total and has been performing consistently with the ball from the past few years for England. The captain, Eoin Morgan, and Joe Root showed a glimpse of their past innings and stitched an important partnership for the team. The speedster, Jofra Archer is the driving force of the team in crucial situations.
As the Australian team is known for its strong comebacks, they will be highly reliant on their opening pair, David Warner and Aaron Finch. The players like Glenn Maxwell and Mitchell Marsh were exquisite in the first match but were cold not cope up to the pressure in the 2nd match. Adam Zampa, who has been the best bowler of the visiting side, would hope to continue his fantastic form in the series decider. All in all, we are set for a thriller and would be interesting to see which team comes over the top in the final match of the series. Below, the Eng vs Aus 3rd ODI fantasy team Dream 11 prediction is discussed.

Last result at the ground- England Won by 24 runs against Australia in the 2nd ODI of the same series.
As England won the T20I series against Australia by 2-1, they were positive with their approach in both the ODI games, won one and lost one. Australia is playing ODIs after 6 months and they have also won one and lost one, but nonetheless, they can be dangerous in any format at any time. They can win the series if Finch goes by his excellent form!
Pitch Report – The pitch is expected to be good for both the bowlers and batsmen. The matches here are always exciting, keeping in mind the Morgan's blistering knock against Afghanistan or India vs New Zealand Semi-Finals in the World Cup 2019.
Weather Report– Luckily, it has not rained even a bit until now in both the games. There is a slight chance of rain at Manchester. The English weather is unpredictable until the last moment. We can expect a full match.
Australia is most likely to win this match, with their side having incredible talent, just like the England team, but in terms of experience, the Aussie top order is way par excellent. Although, the current champions England team will not be a walkover or an easy opposition in front of them. They are also a solid side with talents, across all departments. The form of Finch will be crucial for the win in the 3rd game, followed by Warner and Marnus for putting up a decent score on the board and a tight finish by Maxwell/Marsh could make them win comfortably. Steve Smith can be back in place of Marcus Stoinis for the series decider which will boost the visiting side. Here is the probable XI for ENG vs AUS Dream 11 prediction.
AUS Playing 11 (expected)
Aaron Finch (c)
Steve Smith (fit to play)
Alex Carey (wk)
ENG Playing 11 (expected)
Eoin Morgan (c)
Jos Buttler (wk)
A Finch- He has been in a solid form in the T20Is. After scoring good runs in all the three T20s, he had hopes and burden of the team in his own shoulders for the ODIs and he did overcome it with ease. The team captain has been an impressive player in the ODI circuit over the years, he has scored 4971 runs in the 128 games he has played with an average of 41.08, which is decent. He'll be the first choice for the captain in the ENG vs AUS Dream 11 today match prediction.
D Warner- When there's Finch, there's Warner. One part of the most successful opening duo in the history of Australian cricket, Warner has played 125 ODI matches, where he has 5279 runs with an average of 44.74. Warner was amongst the top scorers in the WC last year here in England. He did not look to be in great touch in the T20s nor the first two ODIs. But can't take the risk of not betting on him. ENG vs AUS Dream 11 today match prediction.
J Bairstow- The first choice for the selection of a player in the Dream 11 WK category would be Bairstow over Buttler here. Buttler has shown himself in a great form in the T20Is, but he comes late down the batting order in the ODIs, whereas Bairstow opens the Innings for England and shown good batting skills in the first game. Jonny has better numbers and records in ODIs when compared to the T20s. He Averages over 45 with more than 3000 runs.
Grand League Vice-Captain choices
A Zampa: He has picked up 7 wickets in 3 matches and has kept the pressure on the opposition side and is consistently churning out the wickets. With a good overall track record and economy rate, Zampa can be a good vice-captain pick for your fantasy team.
J Archer: The player who is in sublime form with an average of 22.75 in white-ball format since his international debut. He has picked up 6 wickets in 2 matches and has been the standout performer for the home side. With adequate batting skills, he has slog at the death overs and provides you an edge over other players.
C Woakes: A not-so-popular vice-captain pick but can turn out to be one of the best bet in your fantasy team. On his day, he can contribute with bat and ball, as it was evident from the 2nd ODI. With an optimum skill set and experience, he has shown good adaptability in the pressure situations and is a nice vice-captain pick for your ENG vs AUS 3rd ODI Dream 11 fantasy team.
