Match Up Analysis

The tenth game will be played at Edgbaston Cricket Ground at Birmingham at 15:00 IST.

England has confirmed their spot in the semifinals with two wins out of two games played so far in the ICC Champions Trophy 2017. For Australia, it is must-win game as two points against old foes would mean a place in the semifinals alongside England from Group A.

ENGLAND: Total games 2 Won 2 Lost O   Points 4

Hosts England are in-form side of the competition and has so far played excellent cricket in games played against Bangladesh and New Zealand. Eoin Morgan’s side has put a foot wrong so far in the competition and would be keen to continue their winning streak when they face against their oldest nemesis Australia at Edgbaston. England must be favorites going into this game as they have been playing better than Australia who has seen indifferent start to the tournament. We pick Alex Hales to score 50 plus in this game as opening batsman has consistently produced scores in this home season for England in the limited overs format. Ben Stokes might be the pick for England with bat and ball. Liam Plunkett once again will be the pick for England among bowlers as Durham-pacer has picked up nine wickets so far in two games of Champions Trophy 2017. Mark Wood and Jake Ball were superb in the last game against New Zealand.

AUSTRALIA: Total Matches 2 Won 0 Lost O No Result 2 Points 2

Australia will face a tough task as they will have to play their best cricket to dislodge England juggernaut that seem unstoppable at the moment. Steven Smith and David Warner need big runs for Australia as both batsmen are capable of producing match-winning knocks for the side in knockout games. Smith can be tipped to score more than 70 runs in the game while Warner might also get 50 plus against England. Glenn Maxwell and Aaron Finch will also hold the key for Australia in the latter stages of the innings.

Mitchell Starc would be the pick for Australia against England as left-arm seems to be picking up steam going into this contest. The left-arm quick is a world-class limited overs bowler who swings the ball upfront and bowls searing yorkers at will at the backend of the innings. Pat Cummins and Josh Hazlewood are also good with the ball so far in this tournament.

Head to Head record: Total games 136: England 51   Australia 80  Tied 2  NR 3

Record in Champions TrophyOut of four games, England and Australia have won two apiece. The last encounter was in England in 2013 ICC Champions Trophy where England came out on top at the very same venue four years ago.

Pitch Report: The rain once again might play a role in this game as well like the previous encounters. The surface will be used one with more likely help for spinners and aiding fast bowlers with reverse swing.
