Betting Tips
  • Marnus Labuschagne is the leading run scorer in the series after hitting a century and a half-century in Adelaide. He is our tip for Australia’s highest run scorer in this match. Captain Pat Cummins will return to the team after missing the Second Test as he was isolating. He will be well rested and is a strong choice for Australia’s top wicket taker against England at the MCG.
  • England captain Joe Root has hit a half-century in both Tests so far in the series. This could be the game where he makes his first century in Australia and he is our tip for England’s highest run scorer in this Test. With the ball, Ben Stokes took 3 wickets in Australia's first innings in Adelaide and is well worth backing as England’s top wicket taker in this game.
  • We are backing Marnus Labuschagne to continue his impressive form and to take the Player of The Match Award.

Australia vs England 3rd Test Match Prediction & Betting Tips

The Third Test of the 2021-22 Ashes begins on Boxing Day at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. Australia won the First Test in Brisbane by 9 wickets and the Day-Night Second Test in Adelaide by 275 runs. England must win this Test to give themselves the chance of regaining the Ashes in this series. Read on as we preview this game. The match begins at 10:30 local time.

Australia have dominated both Tests from early on in the games and will come into this game full of confidence. The return of their captain will give them another boost.

England have put in two poor performances so far in the series and have plenty of room for improvement. If they can post a competitive first innings total then they will have a chance.

Australia Team News & Playing 11

Captain Josh Hazlewood will return to the Australia side after being forced to miss the last Test due to being a close contact of a positive case in Adelaide. Josh Hazlewood will miss out again through injury with Scott Boland a possible debutant after being called up to the squad.

AUS Key Players

  • Marnus Labuschagne- the batter averages 62.14 in Test cricket and has already hit 2 half-centuries and a century in the series.
  • Steve Smith- the vice-captain has gone three Ashes Tests without hitting a century for the first time since 2013. However, he still made 93 in the first innings in Adelaide.
  • Pat Cummins- Australia’s captain had his feet up in isolation throughout the second Test in Adelaide. He will be looking to build on his 7 wickets in Brisbane in this match.

Australia are good value for their 2-0 lead in the series and have been performing to a high standard with bat and ball.

England Team News & Playing 11

ENG Team News

England are suffering from a lack of first innings runs and not taking their chances in the field. However, they batted for 113 overs in the second innings in Adelaide and must build on this in Melbourne. Pace bowler Mark Wood is expected to return to the side after being rested for the Second match of Ashes 2021.

ENG Key Players

  • Joe Root- this Test will be the England captain’s final chance to add to his 6 Test centuries in 2021. He has looked in good form in the series.
  • Ben Stokes- England’s talismanic all-rounder is finding his form after a long period out of the game. He has batted in a very defensive manner so far but has been taking wickets with the ball.
  • Mark Wood- the fast bowler was disappointed to miss out in Adelaide after performing well in Brisbane. He provides an important point of difference to the bowling attack.

ENG Team Form

England may be one of the best international teams in white ball cricket but they are far from a strong Test side. They have won only one of their last eleven Test matches.

England Predicted Playing 11

Rory Burns, Haseeb Hameed, Dawid Malan, Joe Root, Ben Stokes, Jonny Bairstow, Jos Buttler, Ollie Robinson, Stuart Broad, James Anderson, Mark Wood

It would be a huge surprise if England manage to put in another poor performance in this Test, but they need to massively raise their game if they are to challenge Australia. We expect to see a closer game than the opening Tests but are predicting another Australia win.

Australia are favourites to beat England at odds of 1.44
