HOSTS England will take on the defending champions Australia in the second semi-final of 2019 Cricket World Cup at Edgbaston.
Tournament favourites, India crashed out of the championship after suffering a heart-breaking 18-run loss to New Zealand on day two of the first semi-final at Old Trafford.
The winner of today’s match will face New Zealand in the final of the tournament on Sunday.
The defending champions enter the match on the back of a 10-run defeat against South Africa in their last league stage match. Despite few injury setbacks, the Australian side will bank on their star-performers David Warner, Mitchell Starc to make an impact in the contest. All eyes will also be on Peter Handscomb who is all set to make his World Cup debut against England.
England, on the other hand, are playing their first semi-final since 1992. For Eoin Morgan’s Men, it will be about playing the brand of cricket they are known to play in the last four years. England is expected to play the same side as both Jason Roy and Jorfra Archer looked fit in the last match.
