ICC World Cup 2019, London: Confident hosts England will lock horns with defending champions Australia in the second semi-final of the World Cup 2019 at Edgbaston, Birmingham on 11th July.
Meanwhile, hosts England found themselves in small trouble with back to back losses against Sri Lanka and Pakistan. However, they overcame these defeats by defeating tournament favorites New Zealand and India respectively to gain a berth in the semi-final.
On the other hand, defending champions Australia lost their final group match against South Africa, which prevented them from topping the points table. But still, they were in top-notch form winning seven out of nine games. Moreover, they have beaten England in the warm-up game and in a group match in the World cup.
Australia Team Updates :
For Australia, injuries have played a significant role in their road to semi-finals. Their primary players were ruled out of many matches due to injuries.
In their last match against South Africa, middle-order batsman Usman Khwaja was left out due to a hamstring injury. So he now joins the list of injured players including Marcus Stoinis and Shaun Marsh. Now the responsibility is likely to be fall on Steve Smith, Warner, and Finch who have more responsibility for them.
Coming to the bowling unit, Mitchell Starc and Cummins were terrific throughout the tournament. But mainly Starc’s form will certainly be going to make an impact in this match.
England Team Updates :
England came into the semis of the World cup with back to back wins against India and New Zealand. Actually, they came back strongly in the last two matches with the help of Jason Roy and Root. But notably, Jason Roy and Johnny Bairstow have been sensational at top order who scored centuries in their last two matches.
It will be interesting to see how they play against Australia’s top pacers Starc and Cummins.
Coming to bowling unit, Jofra Archer and Chris Woakes done a brilliant job in the tournament although Mark Wood provided a raw pace that has provided wickets for them.

Australia, in their league match, they comfortably defeated England by 64 runs. One of the important factors for Australia is an experience. They have never lost a semi-final match in their build-up to finals in any tournament.
They are defending champions and five-times champions and they know exactly how to win important games and how to tackle pressure. On the other hand, lack of experience and pressure huge expectations from fans might play a spoilsport for England.
