World Cup 2019, England vs Australia: Match details, venue stats, head-to-head record, key players and predicted XI
The stage is set for the oldest rivalry in cricket to be re-ignited as England locks horns with Australia tomorrow at the Mecca of cricket, Lord’s. Having suffered a shock loss to Sri Lanka in their previous encounter, the hosts would be eyeing to land a counter-punch against the Kangaroos.
Meanwhile, Australia have been one of the most dominant forces in the World Cup 2019. With Aaron Finch at the helm, the reigning champions will be hoping to continue their winning ways when they take on their arch-rivals.
England and Eoin Morgan find themselves precariously placed in the points table as they have to win two out of their remaining three games to advance. That adds even more spice to this game than usual.
