Stats and facts:

At Lord's, teams batting first have won three of the last four games, which makes the toss crucial. 

England, bidding to win the World Cup for the first time, cannot afford many more slip-ups in their remaining pool fixtures against fellow title contenders Australia, India and New Zealand -- teams they have not defeated at a World Cup since 1992.

England's rise to the top of the one-day international rankings since their woeful first-round exit at the 2015 World Cup has been based on aggressive batting. 

They have twice posted a world record score at this level in the intervening four years, including the current mark of 481-6 against Australia at Trent Bridge just over 12 months ago.

25 Jun 2019, 2:19 PM (IST)


In ODIs, both the teams have played a total of 147 matches. Australia won 81 and England 61. 

25 Jun 2019, 2:16 PM (IST)


It's was raining yesterday but today, the chances are less. Although, the day is expected to be largely cloudy and thundery showers might develop

25 Jun 2019, 2:15 PM (IST)

All set for the intriguing clash...

25 Jun 2019, 2:13 PM (IST)


England: Eoin Morgan (c), Moeen Ali, Jofra Archer, Jonny Bairstow, Jos Buttler (wk), Tom Curran, Liam Dawson, Liam Plunkett, Adil Rashid, Joe Root, Jason Roy, Ben Stokes, James Vince, Chris Woakes, Mark Wood.

Australia: Aaron Finch (c), David Warner, Usman Khawaja, Steve Smith, Shaun Marsh, Alex Carey (wk), Marcus Stoinis, Glenn Maxwell, Mitchell Starc, Kane Richardson, Pat Cummins, Jason Behrendorff, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Adam Zampa, Nathan Lyon

25 Jun 2019, 2:06 PM (IST)


Defending champions Australia will take on their arch-rivals England at Lord's cricket stadium in one of the much-awaited contests of the Cricket World Cup 2019. 

England are currently at the fourth spot in the points table with four wins from six games, whereas Australia are at number two with 10 points from six matches they have played so far. 

England, who came into the tournament as overwhelming favourites, are in a bit of a tight situation as they need to win at least two of their remaining three games to enter the last four. 

However, it would not be an easy task for them, especially considering they have to face India and New Zealand after their Australia game. 

Thus, the pressure will surely be on Eoin Morgan and team to come out with a fearless brand of cricket which they have played in the last two years. 

To add to their woes is the unavailability of Jason Roy, who has been sidelined due to a hamstring injury.
