IND vs ENG – ICC T20 World Cup – Team Preview
The hosts of the ICC T20 World Cup started their campaign with a disappointing loss against New Zealand but made an immediate comeback in the game against Sri Lanka. Aussies are showing a certain amount of inconsistency in their game and this might become a reason for their early exit from the tournament.
The game against Sri Lanka was a comfortable win for the Australian squad. After winning the toss, Aaron Finch decided to bowl first and gave the opportunity to bat for the Sri Lankan team. Austria knew that the pitch is in favour of the bowlers and that was visible when there was a swing in the bowling. The Aussies were able to stop the Lankan squad at a score of 157 at a loss of 6 wickets. It was now time for the Australian batters to showcase their skills.
David Warner and Aaron Finch opened the innings for the Aussies but Warner quick loss a wicket, The loss of Warner’s wicket gave unsaid pressure to the middle order but once again the middle order showed their class and built a solid partnership to reach the score of 158 at a loss 3 wickets.
England will be confident as they come for this fixture against Australia. The reason behind their confidence will be the series win against the Australian squad before the beginning of the ICC T20 World Cup. They defeated Australia in 2 matches consecutively and the third match was suspended due to rain intervention.
However, the fact of the matter is, that England lost to Ireland on Wednesday and that was a bit of bad luck. It is because of the rain intervention, the DLS method was applied and Ireland was declared the winner of the game. Surprisingly, England lost the momentum of the game from the beginning. The bowlers were unable to break partnerships in the beginning and failed to pick wickets with time.
When it came to the English batters, the opening partnership between Buttler and Hales was broken in the first over. Due to the same reason, England had a slow run rate and when it started to rain, they ended up losing the game.
IND vs ENG – ICC T20 World Cup – Probable Playing XI
Australia: Aaron Finch (c), David Warner, Mitchell Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Tim David, Matthew Wade (wk), Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Adam Zampa, Josh Hazlewood
England: Alex Hales, Mark Wood, Dawid Malan, Adil Rashid, Moeen Ali, Liam Livingstone, Jos Buttler, Sam Curran, Ben Stokes, Chris Woakes, Harry Brook
IND vs ENG – ICC T20 World Cup – Pitch Report and Toss Prediction
Melbourne Cricket Ground is known to work in favour of the pace attack. It provides extra swing and the ground is big, so it becomes difficult for batsmen to score boundaries. The toss-winning team should opt to bowl first because the chase will be much easier.
IND vs ENG – ICC T20 World Cup – Match Prediction
The fixture between Australia and England will be a last-bowl thriller and a lot of it is dependent on the team who wins the toss. However, considering the recent performances by both teams, we predict Australia will get the benefit of being at the home ground.
