England, the host team and tournament favorites midway through the 2019 World Cup Cricket tournament, found themselves in trouble, after facing some back-to-back defeats. Eoin Morgan and Co achieved victories against India and New Zealand to obtain a berth in the semi-final. After finishing third on the points table, the Three Lions are due to play the second semi-final match against the defending champions, Aussies.
On the other hand, the Aussies missed their chance to top the points table, by losing their last league match against South Africa at the Old Trafford. However, for the rest of the matches of the tournament, Aaron Finch and Co dominated the games, by winning seven out of the nine games.
Date and Venue
The match is scheduled to take place at the Edgbaston in Birmingham from 10.30 am(BST)
Weather forecast isn’t very promising. Like the first semi-final match, there are chances of rain.
Clouds would be all over the venue throughout the entire duration of the game.
1.Lot of thing depends on how Warner and Finch step up and deliver.
2.Also, a lot of responsibility is on Smith in Khawaja’s absence.
3.The Aussies would probably play the match with Marcus Stoinis. Also, Peter Handscomb who replaces Shaun Marsh would definitely be in the team for the semis.
4.Carey has been simply outstanding having an average and strike rate of 65.80 and 113.44.
5.Mitchell Starc along with Cummins, Lyon, and Behrendorff remains key elements of the bowling department.
1.Since the injury layoff, Jason Roy has shown great form with scores of 66 and 60.
2.Joe Root is an essential part of the batting lineup with 500 runs.
3.Jos Buttler having a strike rate of 130.41 but still needs to show some form of consistency.
4.Mark Wood and Jofra Archer have been great with wickets.
There is a high chance of the five-time World Champions to defeat the Brits in the semis and head straight to the finals.
