After suffering a shock defeat against Sri Lanka, England will look to return to winning ways and take one step closer towards the semi-finals when they face arch-rivals Australia in their crucial World Cup game at the iconic Lord's Stadium today.
With the stakes high for England, and Australia looking to continue their dominance, fans can be rest assured of an exciting contest at the Home of Cricket.
England vs Australia: England take on arch-rivals Australia in crucial WC tie
With four wins from six games, England are currently at the fourth spot in the points table. The hosts, who came into the tournament as overwhelming favourites, are in a bit of a tight situation as they need to win at least two of their remaining three games to enter the last four.
However, it would not be an easy task for them, especially considering they have to face India and New Zealand after their Australia game.
Thus, the pressure will surely be on Eoin Morgan and team to come out with a fearless brand of cricket which they have playing in the last two years. To add to their woes is the unavailability of Jason Roy, who has been sidelined due to hamstring injury.
Australia, on the other hand, have been quite formidable in their performances so far. They have won five out of their six games and are currently placed at the second position in the points table.
The batsmen, especially their openers, have been in top form and have scored runs in bulk. Their bowlers, led by Mitchell Starc, have been able to pick wickets at crucial junctures of the games.
The availability of Marcus Stoinis has also provided them with the much-needed balance. All in all, Australia have played the reigning champions and will surely look to correct their recent form against England.
The mighty Aussies have lost nine out of the last 10 games played against England.
England vs Australia: Dream 11 top picks
The home team will look to pull up their socks in the fixture today. Players who can help the team achieve it are two of the top batters- Joe Root and James Vince, both of whom are top run scorers and can hit boundaries like its no big deal. Over to the bowling side, one great player is Jofra Archer, who can manage any kind of pitch. Having them by your side would be a wise choice.
Australia, the host's biggest rivals are in great form but will still look to put their best foot forward. From the Australian team, you have to pick Glenn Maxwell, Mitchell Starc and Aaron Finch. Maxwell is a great right hand batter who wields a magical bat. Aaron Finch is also a batsman with lots of power in his hands and his partnership with Maxwell is what we’re looking forward to. As for Mitchell Starc, he will surely make the English batters try out every strategy in their books.
