CWC 2019 Match 32 – England v Australia Preview Dream11. ENG vs AUS Preview Dream11 Prediction

A huge rivalry with World Cup ramifications alongside it. This is huge.

As the CWC 2019 group stage, which only last week looked like it will end with barely a whimper, reaches its last 20 days, the pressure is now well and truly on ahead of a potential classic.

It was not supposed to be like this for England. World Cup favourites on the back of an excellent four years, England are under significant pressure with Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Pakistan right behind them. Their recent record against Australia (9-1 in the last 10 ODIs) is very good, but as this tournament has shown, the pressure of a World Cup is a different beast. Will it be a happy homecoming to the Home of Cricket for England?

What a situation Australia find themselves in. They have the opportunity to push their arch-rivals right on the edge with matches against India and New Zealand still to come. Add David Warner and Steve Smith, copping their fair share of feedback from the English crowd, who will be raring to go against an English side that has to prove itself in high-pressure situations. Australia haven’t lost a WC game to England since 1992 – can they keep it going?

Key to an England win

“We’ve shown throughout the World Cup that we can perform under pressure”, said skipper Eoin Morgan who believes his side is not hampered by nerves. However, this is sure to be a huge test of their resolve. So much rests on their top order to overcome Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins. Also, Jason Behrendhorff and Nathan Lyon, who were both excellent in the Warm-up win vs England, are a chance to play. So, can England execute their plans whilst playing with the freedom that has underlined their ODI rise in the past four years? Can Jos Buttler, who has been a little quiet so far apart from one innings, rise to the occasion off the back of a strong top order platform?

Also, England’s bowlers have performed well in recent matches. They set the game up against Sri Lanka and blew the Windies away. Mark Wood and Jofra Archer both have more than 10 wickets for the tournament. A good mix of pace and spin holds them in good stead, doesn’t it?

They come up against one of the in-form top orders of the World Cup – Aaron Finch and David Warner average 86.5 for the opening wicket in CWC 2019. England need to break this stand early and give the heat – that is on them right now – back to Australia’s middle order. Can they ensure Glenn Maxwell and Marcus Stoinis come in with plenty left to do? Can they finish really well with bat and ball? With plenty at stake, they’ll have to.

CWC 2019 Match 32 – England v Australia Preview Dream11 – Can Root and Buttler add different dimensions to England’s innings?

Key to an Australia win

Australia have five wins in six games in CWC 2019, but they will be the first to say they haven’t been at their best so far. Whether this proves to be ominous or an opportunity for England depends on how well Australia’s desire to do well in this game translates to on-field dominance. Can Australia’s attack, under par at times in CWC 2019, get the better of England’s dangerous lineup? Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins will be key as always, but who will help maintain the pressure so England have to expand their plans beyond simply targeting Starc and Cummins?

Also, the battle between Australia’s batsmen and England’s bowlers is worthy of dropping everything and gluing your eyes to. David Warner has received a welcome from the England public that has seemed to spur him on. Same with Steve Smith. Aaron Finch, like Warner, is in outstanding form, so can Australia provide another strong platform that sets them up for a big launch? Their finishing has been in question throughout the tournament, but their effort against Bangladesh can hold them in good stead. Will it be the day of Glenn Maxwell?

Pitch and conditions

The Pakistan-South Africa game at Lord’s showed that the pitch has something in it for everyone. Expect similar today, with overcast conditions throughout the day.

Possible Playing 11

VOTE: Were England right to exclude Alex Hales from their World Cup squad?

England suffered a shock loss to Sri Lanka (KP and Michael Vaughan might be a little nervous!), but they have enough quality and experience to back the same team as Jason Roy is not expected to be fully fit for this match.

England: 1. Jonny Bairstow, 2. James Vince, 3. Joe Root, 4. Eoin Morgan (c), 5. Ben Stokes, 6. Jos Buttler (wk), 7. Moeen Ali, 8. Chris Woakes, 9. Jofra Archer, 10. Adil Rashid, 11. Mark Wood

Nathan Coulter-Nile and Adam Zampa have been under-par for Australia in this World Cup. So, Jason Behrendhorff and Nathan Lyon, who were good in Australia’s Warm-up win over England, could come in.

Australia: 1. Aaron Finch (c), 2. David Warner, 3. Usman Khawaja, 4. Steve Smith, 5. Glenn Maxwell, 6. Marcus Stoinis, 7. Alex Carey (wk), 8. Pat Cummins, 9. Mitchell Starc, 10. Jason Behrendhorff/Kane Richardson, 11. Nathan Lyon

Stats and Facts

  • Head-to-head in World Cups: Matches 7, England 2, Australia 5.
  • England have not beaten Australia in a World Cup match since 1992.
  • England have won nine of the past 10 ODIs against Australia, including a 5-0 whitewash a year ago.

Match Prediction

This could very well come down to which team bats first. The pressure of World Cup matches has made chasing more difficult than usual. As this is a high-stakes game, runs on the board are golden.

Head says England. Heart says Australia. I believe whoever bats first will win this game. Should be a beauty!
