It’s an open secret that England have struggled in this tournament and have very little chances of lifting their game against Australia. The Aussies on the other hand, have strong chances of making it to the semis and could look to improve their position with a win. I am backing Australia to continue their winning run here.

  • England have lost 5 of their last 6 matches (ODIs)
  • England have lost their last 4 matches against Australia (ODIs)
  • Australia have won their last 4 matches (ODIs)
  • Australia have won 4 of their last 5 World Cup matches against England (ODIs)
  • Travis Head scored at least 50 in 5 of his last 6 matches against England (ODIs)

Head to Head


England played 155 ODIs against Australia so far, with the Three Lions winning 87. Australia won 63, while two matches were tired and three ended without a result.

The last time these sides played was in a three-match ODI series in November 2022 which Australia won 3-0.

England Form


England are bottom of the points tally with two points from six matches. They are only mathematically active in the top-four race, but practically it is the top-eight positions that they could be targeting.

After four straight losses, the defending champions are struggling to get some momentum. Their defeats have been comprehensive as indicated by the margins – 100 runs, eight wickets, 229 runs and 69 runs.

Only Dawid Malan (236 runs) has scored more than 200 runs in the tournament and that’s an indicator of their troubles. Even with the ball, no one’s taken more wickets than Adil Rashid’s eight, which underlines their problems.

England Team News


Harry Brook could come into contention for England while Brydon Carse might also fancy a game.

Australia Form


Australia lifted themselves into the top-four contention with eight points from six matches. Their four wins have come on the trot boosting their chances of semis qualification.

They still need to win at least two of the remaining matches, but with a tricky game against Afghanistan next up, they wouldn’t want to leave things late.

The return of Travis Head has added further muscle to the Aussies, who have enjoyed the returns of David Warner (413 runs). With the ball, it is the leg-spinner Adam Zampa (16 wickets) who has been their leading light in this tournament.

Australia Team News


Mitchell Marsh has left the Australian squad for personal reasons and that could mean a game for Marcus Stoinis. Glenn Maxwell is also ruled out due to concussion and that could mean a game for Cameron Green.

Verdict

England vs Australia is usually a high-voltage contest with the rich history of the two teams. This time around, there’s not much context around this fixture as England are virtually out of the tournament. Australia still need a couple of wins to confirm their top-four spot and will not be taking this game lightly. I feel there’s enough firepower and form for the Aussies who should win this match.
