England (@1.61) vs Australia (@3.1)

Our Prediction:

England will win

England – Australia Match Prediction | 22-08-2019

Its extremely tough to call a winner out of this one, a tricky proposition which has left us pondering. Australia have problems in the middle-order and if Warner, Finch and Smith go early, theyll find it tough to chase down Englands hefty score. However after several deliberations and dissecting the two teams, we are going to side with England if they bat first.

So, bat first and win the game would be the mantra. Batting second gets tougher as the pitches slow down. Chasing a target is never easy in knockout matches. AUS vs ENG Match Prediction:In a high-pressure game, runs on the board make a huge difference. Also, the teams that have batted first, have won most of the matches in this tournament.

Both teams have a strong batting order in their sides so we are expecting a high scoring match. The pitch here at this venue is much supported for batting but it has big boundries as well. Spinner will also have some help from thes conditions. The second semi-final match of cricket World Cup 2019 will be played at Emirates Edgbaston, Birmingham.

Ashes series is also scheduled to play between these two teams in some coming weeks so this match is very important for these both teams. The last time they played here against England back in 2017 in Champions Trophy and they were also beaten. They are five times champions of cricket World Cup but that is also a reality that they had not won any match at Edgbaston since 1993. We all know that Australia and England are the oldest rivals in cricket. At the end of league stage matches, they are at the second position on the table with 14 points and good run rate. Australia is the team who had won more World Cup title than any team. Australia is the second best performing team of this World Cup right now. They played nine matches at the league stage with seven wins and two losses.

ENG vs AUS Head to Head

Usman Khawaja has been cleared of any injury after taking a blow on the jaw in their unofficial warm-up match against the West Indies. Since naming their 15-man squad, which was otherwise largely as expected, Kane Richardson has replaced the injured Jhye Richardson. The return of David Warner and Steve Smith after their one-year ban for their part in the ball-tampering scandal took the headlines in Australias World Cup selection.

Theres only one strategy to go for against the batsman, bowl at a wicket to wicket line and keep hitting the ball near his pads with some outswing, something Nathan will look to turn to. Hes one of the most prized wicket and Australia will be turning to Nathan Coulter-Nile to send him back. The pacer has over the last couple of matches worked on his bowling, reaping its rewards with some important scalps and will be looking to pepper Root with some treacherous deliveries as well.

Ben Stokes is in top form but to pick the Englishman you must be prepared to sacrifice one of the other star players. Glenn Maxwell and Marcus Stoinis are both only 8.5 credits. Moeen Ali might be a better pick therefore particularly as he has something to prove after defeat last time out. In order to afford the four star batsmen, some savings need to made elsewhere.

Englands completed squad for World Cup 2019 showed three changes from their provisional selection, with Jofra Archer, Liam Dawson and James Vince in for David Willey, Joe Denly and Alex Hales. Dawson is likely to play a prominent role in this warm-up match given he did not feature in the series with Pakistan. Jofra Archer and Mark Wood will want overs under their belts too.

AUS vs ENG Live Score

They have hard-hitting batsmen in the side till number seven. England also has a strong bowling unit on the side. Joe Root had scored 500 runs in this World Cup in nine innings with two centuries and three fifties. He had scored two centuries and two fifties. They can use Adil Rashid or maybe Moeen Ali in this match. Jonny Bairstow is the other batsman from England side who had scored 462 runs in this World Cup so far. Jofra Archer had got 18 wickets in this World Cup right now while Mark Wood has 17 wickets in his account. England had a strong batting order in their team. Joe Root, Ben Stokes, Eoin Morgan, Jos Buttler, Jason Roy, and Jonny Bairstow. They also have the options in their spin bowling unit. The bowlers like Mark Wood, Chris Woakes, Jofra Archer, and Liam Plunkett had been excellent in this season of World Cup.

Especially on a Lords surface which looks to have lateral and unpredictable bounce as was visible during South Africas and Pakistans encounter a couple of days back, the new ball could decide how this match shapes up. He was billed as a player who would take command of his side, a pacer who England claimed would emerge as a surprise package and Archer has just done that.

Jos Buttler is very dangerous but he has been out of touch in recent matches and is batting a bit too low to make consistent big scores. Picking him is an easy choice. Wicketkeeper: Alex Carey and Jos Buttler are the two real options from this category although peter Handscomb could also be in the playing eleven. Alex Carey, on the other hand, is the third-highest run-scorer for Australia and in supreme touch.

He will, however, bowl most of his overs and be expected to attack during the end overs. He seems to find new ways to get himself out. Glenn Maxwell has been frustrating to watch. He is our pick to have the biggest impact on the match. Stokes is a leading player for England in both the batting and bowling disciplines. All-rounders: Ben Stokes and Glenn Maxwell are the only two real choices in this category. If he comes off then he could be a big boon to the team.

A player extradonaire, a number 3 bat who intertwines the sublime ability to keep his intent in check in the beginning and open his arms once settled into his grove, Root is the player who has held fort in each and every match for England. A dependable and flawless player, hes befittingly the high scorer of the tournament till now, always ensuring England are never caught in a jittery position.
