Tip Summary

  • England suffered a loss against Ireland in their most recent T20 World Cup match by five runs.
  • Australia recorded their first victory on Tuesday by hammering Sri Lanka by seven wickets.
  • The two teams last faced each other in a three-match T20I series earlier this month that ended with England winning by 2-0.

One of the most exciting clashes of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 will be played at Melbourne Cricket Ground on Friday as Australia will take on arch-rivals England. The two teams have had similar journeys in the T20 extravaganza so far with a loss and win each under their name.

England started the competition on a high note by defeating Afghanistan by five wickets. It was a one-sided affair as the Englishmen chased 113 runs within 18.1 overs. However, the team failed to make the same impact in the second game against Ireland. Rain was the main culprit behind England’s loss. In reply to Ireland’s 157, the team scored 105 runs in 14.3 overs after losing five wickets. Following that, the play was not possible because of rainfall and thus Ireland won by five runs due to the DLS method.

Coming to Australia, they faced a major setback in the form of an 89-run defeat against New Zealand in the curtain-raiser. The host posted only 111 runs while following a score of 201 runs. However, they redeemed themselves against Sri Lanka by chasing 158 runs in 16.3 overs to record a win by seven wickets. 

The two teams are expected to fight tooth and nail on Friday to avoid their second defeat in the T20 tournament. 

England vs Australia Tips

Player of the Match: Marcus Stoinis

  • Best Odds: 15.0 @ Becric

The odds are in the favor of Marcus Stoinis to once again produce a whirlwind performance and take Australia to their second consecutive win. The all-rounder put on a show against Sri Lanka by producing one of the finest knocks in the T20 World Cup so far. Coming to bat in 12.2 overs, he caused a riot in the middle with his knock of 59 runs off just 18 balls. The strike rate of 327.78 speaks volumes about the kind of the carnage Stoinis caused. The all-rounder is expected to deliver another match-defining performance under home conditions.

Top England batter: Alex Hales

None of the England batters have produced a magical performance in the ICC tournament so far. However, if we have to pick one player who can outshine the Australian bowlers, then it will be Alex Hales. The opening batter has a massive experience of playing in Australian conditions due to BBL. Also, he is backed by his terrific records in the shortest format of the game. So far, Hales has recorded scores of 18 and seven. However, we expect him to cause a turnaround in his form from Friday.

Top wicket-taker of the match: Sam Curran

  • Best Odds: 4.6 @ 10Cric

Sam Curran’s performance in the T20 World Cup has been magnificent in the first two matches. The young seamer has truly announced his comeback as a bowler with seven wickets at an average of 5.86. Thus, it should not be a surprise if Sam comes up with another pleasing performance to cause a collapse of the Australian batting line-up.
