The 32nd match of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 will be played between England and Australia at Lord’s, London on Tuesday, June 25.
Both England and Australia sit pretty in the top four positions with 8 and 10 points respectively and will be looking to further improve their chances of sealing their place in the next round as we enter the business end of the tournament.
With the likes of Jofra Archer and Joe Root in fine form, England should be considered slight favourites although Australia’s batting trio of Finch, Warner and Smith have proven time and again as to why the Aussies are a genuine threat to the ICC World Cup trophy.
With all 10 teams at the World Cup part of the round-robin group stage, each team will play a total of nine matches before the knockout stages, starting July 9. The top four teams will qualify for the knockout stages.
