The Australian top-order batters, David Warner, Steve Smith, Marnus Labuschagne, and Mitchell Marsh all got to scoring fifties in the series so far. In the first two games, their bowlers delivered a clinical performance. They would look to whitewash the win.
So far, England have scored below-par totals. Apart from Dawid Malan, none other batter has got a significant score so far in the series. For the side, the opening lineup is also a major problem as Jason Roy scored 6 & 0 in the first two games respectively.
Ben Stokes retiring from the team has created an imbalance for the side. In T20 WC, he played a crucial part, getting an unbeaten score of 52 in the final.
