ICC Cricket World Cup Match Predictions
Semi-Final, Match-2, Australia VS England
World Cup 2019 - 11 July 2019 @ Edgbaston Stadium
Let’s find out who will win this match and reach the Finals of Cricket World Cup 2019
Australia VS England
The Hosting nation, England has finally made its position in the top four teams and has managed to reach the first semi-final ever since 1992. In the second match of semifinal of World Cup 2019, England will take on the defending champions, Australia on 11 July at Edgbaston. Not to mention, England was just lucky to reach the semifinals, given how they suffered midway along the group stage. Australia who performed tremendously well throughout the tournament, lost a rather unexpected game to South Africa in the last match of the group stage, giving up its top spot to India
Team Australia Preview
Team Australia’s bowling is in a perfect form with Mitchel Starc as the leading wicket-taker in the tournament with 26 wickets under his name. Even though he failed to get wickets against South Africa, allowing them to take over the last game of the group stage, but his contribution in the 2015 World Cup led the team to win the ultimate battle of cricket.
With the increasing injuries in the team, Usman Khawaja, Marcus Stoinis also have joined the list of injured players.
Losing Khawaja from the further games in the CWC 2019, is a major blow to the team’s batting squad. This leaves the major responsibility on Steve Smith, whose performance in the current tournament has been questionable.
Australia need to guard against losing the top order players early in the game, because this makes them vulnerable and confused.
Nathan Lyon, Pat Cummins and Jason Behrendroff need to perform their best to come hard at England.
Team England Preview
England may have stumbled along the path, but has finally made its place in the semi-finals of CWC 2019. The hosting country has never brought the Cup home and this is the second time after 1992 that they have managed to get to the semi-finals.
Edgbaston and Team England have a good history and it will prove to be beneficial for the power hitters to utilize the huge boundaries and the flat pitch.
Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow, Joe Root, Ben Stokes, Eoin Morgan, and Jos Buttler are the top 7 power players of the team and are in perfect form.
England batting squad is currently much stronger than that of Australia with a lot of strength and power at its end. Everyone is aware that currently, England is geared up with all the tools that are needed to win the game. Even though England lost the match against Australia in the group stage but playing with a positive outlook and focusing on the current domination over Australia, it seems impossible for the team to stay back in the game.
