England face Australia in a grudge match to determine which side will have a shot at the Cricket World Cup trophy.


The host nation finished third in the table after dispatching New Zealand confidently in their final game.

However, Australia limped over the line with a shock defeat to South Africa, meaning they lost the top seed spot and must face England as opposed to Oceanic rivals New Zealand in the semi-finals.

Australia have already beaten England during this tournament – by 64 runs – but Eoin Morgan’s resurgent side have looked far more assured since, having beaten the favourites India.

Who will win? says…

It took a little while for England to find their best line-up, to find their rhythm, but victories over India and New Zealand in the last two games have boosted confidence and will have enjoyed a nourishing, long break by the time of the semi-finals.

Australia’s momentum took a blow during their shock defeat to South Africa on Sunday, but their loss shouldn’t detract from the fact they have enjoyed an excellent tournament.

Mitchell Starc has taken wickets for fun – 26 in total, with an average of just under three per game – while star indiviuals David Warner and Aaron Finch both rank in the top four run-scorers for the competition.

And yet… England’s batting line-up have enjoyed great success after overcoming injury worries, with Jason Roy posting 341 runs from just five innings. He has built some terrific opening platforms in tandem with Jonny Bairstow, while Joe Root has quietly knocked dead-on 500 runs for the tournament.

This will be an incredibly tight one, an early wicket could decide it for either team, but England’s quality throughout the order cannot be overlooked.
