On June 25 the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 will witness a battle between the top two sides as well as the favourites England and Australia. While England have registered 4 wins from 6 games and lost to Pakistan and Sri Lanka, Australia won five games out of six. They only lost to India, the other favourite team alongside the host England and Australia. It would be interesting to see who will win the game.

H2H record

Both the teams have met 7 times in the history of ICC World Cup where Australia won 5 times and England 2. The result clearly shows the dominance of Australia over England.

Predicted Playing 11

England: Jonny Bairstow, James Vince, Joe Root, Eoin Morgan (C), Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler (WK), Moeen Ali, Chris Woakes, Jofra Archer, Liam Plunkett/Tom Curran, Adil Rashid

Australia: David Warner, Aaron Finch (C), Usman Khawaja, Steve Smith, Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Alex Carey (WK), Nathan Coulter-Nile, Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Adam Zampa

Weather and pitch report

Rains are forecast at the night on Monday but the weather is expected to be clear before the game. However, if not, Lord’s is well equipped to deal with the showers and expected to the game will go forward smoothly.

Prediction for match result

The pressure will be on both the sides, though more will be on England as they need to win the game to keep their hope alive to qualify for the semi-finals. Moreover, they will not get the service of their in-form opener Jason Roy. That certainly makes their squad a little weaker as James Vince failed to pose a threat to Australia. On the other hand, Australia are much stronger now with their in-form all-rounder Marcus Stoinis’ return.

Conclusion

In conclusion, this England vs Australia game in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 should go in Australia’s favour. Even though England can be dangerous, Australia have some players like David Warner, Aaron Finch, Mitchell Starc etc. who single-handedly win the games for their side.
