ICC CT 2017: Group A, 10th Match England vs Australia
The match is scheduled to begin on June 10, 2017. 10:30 local time (9:30 GMT), (14:30 PKT).
England: EJG Morgan*, MM Ali, JM Bairstow, JT Ball, SW Billings, JC Buttler†, ST Finn, AD Hales, LE Plunkett, AU Rashid, JE Root, JJ Roy, BA Stokes, DJ Willey, MA Wood
Australia: SPD Smith*, DA Warner, PJ Cummins, AJ Finch, JW Hastings, JR Hazlewood, TM Head, MC Henriques, CA Lynn, GJ Maxwell, JL Pattinson, MA Starc, MP Stoinis, MS Wade†, A Zampa
Both Joe Root and Alex Hales have scored big in the first two games and England will want them to continue their rich vein of form. The latter is averaging 79.50 in ODIs at the Edgbaston and one can expect a good batting display from him in this match. Liam Plunkett seems to be going through a purple patch. The pacer has notched up a four-wicket haul in each of the two matches and he will definitely pose the biggest threat to the Australian batting lineup. Adil Rashid also impressed with two wickets in his first game of the tournament and he has six wickets from two matches at this ground, making him another bowler to watch out for.
England are exhibiting amazing form in ODI cricket, winning 10 of their past 11 matches. Six of these wins have come at home which goes to show how tough a team they are to beat in their own backyard. England will be coming off comprehensive victories in their first two matches.
The top three David Warner, Aaron Finch and Steven Smith form the backbone of Australia’s powerful batting lineup. The trio have shown good form with the bat of late and the team will expect them to attack the English bowlers. Josh Hazlewood and Mitchell Starc will be the key bowlers for Australia in these swinging conditions. Hazlewood claimed a six-fer at this ground in the first game against New Zealand and a similar performance can be expected of him against England as well.
Australia entered the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 with a 0-2 defeat against New Zealand in the Chappell Hadlee Trophy. Both their matches so far in the tournament have resulted in washouts; they got out of jail against the Kiwis in the first game and were unfortunate to be denied a sure victory in the second.
England, who chose to field.
England won by 40 runs (D/L method).
