Australia vs England Match Prediction

AUS vs ENG Match Prediction & Betting Tips, T20 World Cup 2024

Two old rivals meet again on Saturday afternoon in Bridgetown, Barbados as Australia take on England in Match 17 of Group B. Australia came through a couple of tough moments to beat Oman by 39 runs on Wednesday whereas England’s match with Scotland ended as a no-result on Tuesday. Read on as we preview this match. The game begins at 13:00 local time on Saturday June 8th.

Strong batting from David Warner and Marcus Stoinis were crucial in the win over Oman but there is also a lot more to come from this Australian side, particularly with the bat. The Aussies will be motivated to beat the holders in this match and they have a very strong group of players.

After their opening game against Scotland fell victim to the weather, England can not afford to go two games without a win as the other nations will start to believe that they can claim second place. However, England players often save their best for T20I clashes against Australia.

AUS vs England Match Toss Prediction

Here at the Kensington Oval, Bridgetown, we have seen Australia win when batting first and Scotland win when fielding first in this tournament so far. We expect both sides to want to post a target and to bat first in this match if they win the toss.

AUS vs England Pitch Report

It was the pace bowlers who had the most joy on this pitch on Thursday evening but there are some top spinners in this game who will still get turn from the surface. Whoever bats first will want to post a total of at least 185-195 if they want to be competitive.

Barbados Weather Report

It will be another warm evening in Barbados on Saturday evening and although it will be humid, we expect the rain to stay away. Clouds will build a little as the game progresses but won’t really affect the temperature which will be above 28.

Australia Team News & Playing 11

AUS Team News

Test and ODI captain Pat Cummins was rested for the opening game of the tournament and will now face a tough task getting back into the team for this match. Nathan Ellis and Josh Hazlewood are the players most likely to give way if Cummins comes back.

AUS Key Players

  • Travis Head – The opener hit two fours before he was dismissed by Bilal Khan against Oman. He is a pure timer of a ball and he can score runs from unorthodox positions.
  • David Warner – The 37 year old enjoyed taking the attack to Oman’s bowlers, hitting six fours and a six, He loves nothing more than scoring runs against England and this might be his final chance to do so.
  • Marcus Stoinis – The all-rounder was key to Australia’s victory in the opening match with an unbeaten half-century before taking 3/19 with the ball.
  • Mitchell Starc – The left-arm quick bowler struck in the opening over of the innings against Oman and he will be dangerous with the new and old ball in this match.

AUS Team Form

Australia are targeting their fifth successive T20I victory in this match.

England Team News & Playing 11

ENG Team News

In terms of bowlers getting some overs in their legs, the ten overs in the field against Scotland were useful but there will be calls for Reece Topley and Sam Curran to come into the team for this game. However, England teams are famously loyal to their players and with no injuries we expect to see the same side.

ENG Key Players

  • Jos Buttler – The captain was in excellent form for his country at the top of the order in the last T20I series and he will have no fears of attacking the famous Australian bowlers in this game.
  • Phil Salt – The opener is a good fielder but also a very strong opening batter. He has had a very successful last 12 months with the bat in international and franchise cricket.
  • Mark Wood – The right-arm pace bowler took a wicket from a no-ball against Scotland. He has the speed to cause real problems to the top batters and we can expect him to be given a licence to just bowl fast in this match.
  • Chris Jordan – The right-arm fast medium bowler is also one of the best fielders in the world and his death bowling will be crucial in this game in Barbados.

ENG Team Form

England are unbeaten from their last five T20Is but their bowling was disappointing against Scotland.

England Predicted Playing 11
