Australia beat England at the ICC 2019 World Cup and so far, Australia A is also dominating on their current tour of England. They are here for a long tour of 5 ODIs and 2 unofficial tests and so far, the ODI segment is almost over. Australia A lead 3-0 with one games being lost due to rain, and they have won all very convincingly too.

Before we move on to the longer format, Australia A plays Gloucestershire in the 5th and final ODI at the same ground in Bristol. They played each other in the 4th ODI too and AUS A chased 247 with 8 overs and 5 wickets to spare.

Benny Howell has gone wicketless in his last 6 games for Gloucestershire but he is one of their most valuable all-rounders and even though he failed in the last game with 0/54 and 7(7), I’ll be picking him in my fantasy team today. The team is being captained by Jack Taylor and I’d avoid this player as he came on as the 6th bowler and bowled just one ball while also batting as low as #6 for just 11. Skip him.

It has been 5 games since Chris Liddle went wicketless for Gloucestershire and he also picked 3 of the 5 Australia A wickets to fall in the 4th ODI, so you can’t miss out on picking him. George Hankins (74) and James Bracey (83) did the scoring in the 4th ODI but with Bracey occupying the wicket-keeper spot, I’ll have to drop him from my fantasy team. Ian Cockbain could be an extra option with the bat.

Australia A

We were shocked with Mitchell Marsh’s exclusion from the Australian World Cup squad but he is really proving himself here with 5 wickets and 122 runs in 3 games so far, while also yet to be dismissed on this tour. He’s my captain once again, but we will have to wait for the toss as Australia A has won the series and they may want to make a few changes at the top and among the bowlers. James Pattinson is injured and will not play.

If Andrew Tye plays, skip him. Gloucestershire played him well and gave him only 1 wicket after his 6-fer in his previous game. Instead, pick the experienced Josh Hazlewood who is still to find his rhythm, with 3 wickets in 2 games on this tour. If he plays, Matthew Wade is a must-have in your PlayerzPot (Use Code “READ1234”) fantasy team, with captain/vice-captain not being a bad option either, especially if playing one-on-one contests.
