Today’s AU-W vs IN-W Dream11 match top picks
Alyssa Healy: Although Alyssa Healy was dismissed without scoring in the previous game, her explosive batting ability is second to none across both squads. Her glovework adds value, making her a must-have in your AU-W vs IN-W Dream11 fantasy team.
Smriti Mandhana: Although Smriti Mandhana scored a brisk fifty in the previous game, she would have been eyeing a deserved hundred. Her experience of playing in Australia before should serve her well and hold her in good stead ahead of this game.
Tahlia McGrath: Tahlia impressed with both bat and ball in the previous game, earning a heap of Dream11 fantasy points in the process. With form on her side, McGrath can be banked upon to deliver yet again today.

However, the controversial manner of Australia's last-ball win would be something she would want to overcome with a better performance in the final game of the series, making her a good option for your AU-W vs IN-W Dream11 fantasy team.
