Cricket Match Preview:

The teams have reached UK now with their sight firmly set on the big prize of the World Cup. The countdown has begun and with just a week to go for the opening game of the tournament, teams will now play a few warmup games to get ready for the big tournament. Amidst this, England will take on their archrivals Australia in their first warmup game and look to take the ascendency in a battle that will surely take place at least once in the tournament.

England have been the best team in the world in the past four years and even though Australia are the defending champions, it is hard to bet against England this time. It seems that almost everything has aligned itself for England, the pitch will be super flat, which will be conducive to their attacking batsmen, and now they have assembled a good bowling attack as well with the inclusion of an exciting talent, Jofra Archer.

Australia have been a side marred by issues in the last four years. They looked in complete disarray after the South Africa tour, where three of their main players were banned due to the ball-tampering scandal. However, since then, they have begun gaining confidence slowly but surely, which was apparent especially in their last couple of series just before the World Cup.

After their disappointing defeat against India in their own country, they went to India and defeated them in the ODI cricket series by a 3-2 margin after being down by 2-0 at the beginning of the cricket series. Post that, they also went to UAE and whitewashed Pakistan by 5-0. All these results must have given them confidence and with the inclusion of David Warner and Steve Smith in their lineup, their side looks a formidable one and it will not be easy for any side to brush them aside.

Cricket Match Information:

England will take on Australia in their warmup game of cricket. This will be an ideal opportunity for both teams to get their combinations right before the big tournament begins on the 30th of May. These two teams will meet once again when the tournament begins as the format is such that each team will meet with each other at least once.


Probable XI (Our Prediction):

England are going to be strong favourites for the World Cup. Our prediction is of the inclusion of Jofra Archer in the playing eleven for this cricket game.

Here is our prediction of England’s playing XI:

  • Jos Butler
  • Johnny Bairstow
  • Joe Root
  • Eoin Morgan
  • Moeen Ali
  • Jason Roy
  • Liam Plunkett
  • Mark Wood
  • Adil Rashid
  • Jofra Archer
  • Chris Woakes


Probable XI (Our Prediction):

Australia are coming into the World Cup after winning back-to-back cricket series against India and Pakistan. They now also have the services of David Warner and Steve Smith. Our prediction is of the inclusion of both Warner and Smith in their playing eleven.

Here is our prediction of Australia’s playing XI:

  • Aaron Finch
  • David Warner
  • Steve Smith
  • Alex Carrey
  • Shaun Marsh
  • Glenn Maxwell
  • Marcus Stoinis
  • Adam Zampa
  • Usman Khawaja
  • Mitch Starc
  • Pat Cummins

Cricket Statistics and Prediction:

David Warner is back into the playing eleven for Australia. He had a sensational IPL this year and he will be looking to replicate that form at the biggest of the stage. Our prediction is of a good knock from him in his comeback cricket game.

Cricket Match Conditions and Pitch:

The last international ODI cricket game was played here between Pakistan and England recently. England won that cricket game by 12 runs after scoring a mammoth 373 runs. Our prediction is of a score of around 350 runs again if England bat first. Conditions are expected to be sunny and beautiful for a cricket game.

Our Prediction:

England will begin the game of cricket as favourites. They are the number one cricket side of the format and are expected to be very tough to beat yet again despite their limitation in the bowling department. Our prediction is of England’s win in this warm-up cricket game.

Top Batsman (Prediction):

Jonny Bairstow (ENG) – 100+ runs

Top Bowler (Prediction):

Jofra Archer (ENG) – 2 or more wickets

Most Sixes (Prediction):

Jonny Bairstow (ENG)
