English players had a tough few months and definitely would of backed themselves to win the Twenty20 series with the batting order they have. But they remained unable to win a single series in any of the three formats in Australia. Now they are left with the last T20 match also a dead rubber but Stuart Broad made it clear England need to grab a victory save their honor and lift their enthusiasm. Eoin Morgan has a variety of strokes in his list and performed brilliantly in the ODI series but has failed on both occasions in the Twenty20 series and will be required to help England in attaining some positive outcome in this final match. The likely English squad will include: 1 Michael Lumb, 2 Alex Hales, 3 Luke Wright, 4 Joe Root, 5 Eoin Morgan, 6 Jos Buttler (wk), 7 Ravi Bopara, 8 Tim Bresnan, 9 Stuart Broad (capt), 10 Ben Stokes, 11 James Tredwell.
Australia have already sealed the series in Melbourne and now will only play to enforce a whitewash here. The selection of Cameron White this series has worked positively for Australia and will create a headache for selectors for the World Cup with Finch, Warner, Marsh and Watson all capable of opening the batting. The probable Australian lineup will include: 1 Aaron Finch, 2 Cameron White, 3 Brad Hodge, 4 Glenn Maxwell, 5 George Bailey (capt), 6 Chris Lynn, 7 Matthew Wade (wk), 8 Josh Hazlewood/Ben Cutting, 9 Mitchell Starc, 10 Nathan Coulter-Nile/Kane Richardson, 11 James Muirhead.
