World Cup Squad Comparison

England

Few would have expected Eoin Morgan’s side to lose the last game against Sri Lanka but poor display with the bat and little bit of overconfidence cost them the game. With a loss to Pakistan earlier they haven’t quite lived up to the tag of being favorites in the tournament. Morgan would know that the next few games would be against the best sides in the tournament starting with Australia. He would like his team to draw confidence from the fact that their recent record against Australia has been brilliant. A win in this game would almost guarantee them a spot in the semi-finals and the team would be eagerly looking forward to the contest.

James Vince hasn’t quite filled into the shoes of Jason Roy and would be looking to do well in the next game along with Jonny Bairstow who also missed out in the last game. The middle order is strong for the side with Joe Root, Eoin Morgan and Ben Stokes in good form. The presence of Jos Buttler and Moeen Ali makes the side’s batting strong. In the bowling department Jofra Archer and Mark Wood have had a great season. In fact they have broken the myth of England being a poor team with the ball. Their spinners Adil Rashid and Moeen Ali have also done well and would look to trouble the Australians in company of Stokes and Chris Woakes.

Australia

Aaron Finch would be extremely happy with the way his side has played so far. Apart from the game against India they have done well in all the other games. Even in times of crisis someone has raised their game and rescued the side. They didn’t arrive to England with a great record in the last couple of years but have so far played like defending champions. Finch would know that a win against England would take them into the semi-finals of the tournament and with his batsmen in good form he would be eyeing that in the next game.

Our prediction for England vs Australia

England shall win this game

It one of the most anticipated contests in the World Cup hosts and tournament favourites England shall take on arch-rivals Australia at the Lord’s. England come into this game after their shock defeat against Sri Lanka in the last game and would be looking to get back to winning ways in this game. World champions Australia has played professionally in the tournament so far apart from their loss against India. It will be a high voltage encounter where both the sides would be looking to win and take a step forward towards a place in the semi-final.

The recent record for England against Australia has been impressive. While both the sides are equally matched the English team would start nose ahead of Australians in this game.
