Cricket World Cup preview – Australia v England: Will rain spoil the oldest rivalry?

Overcast weather is predicted for the day, as the first half will have some chances of the shower, which may result in a late start.

The oldest rivalry in cricket will lock their horns at Lord’s, one of the most iconic stadium in the world. These two teams played the first Test and ODI of Cricket history against each other, and the rivalry is also known as Ashes in Test cricket. Australia has won 5 World Cup titles whereas England couldn’t win one. But the rain won’t allow a full game today.

Australia has played great cricket so far in this tournament. They have scored runs, took wickets, saved runs, and did everything to the perfection in almost all the games they have played. Finch would be hoping to repeat all these acts in their game against the arch-rivals.

England lost to Sri Lanka in the last game which opened the gates for other teams to have a hope of reaching the semis. England needs to win at least two games out of their previous 3 to reach the semi-finals. The last time they won against Australia in the World Cup was in 1992. With their next two games against unbeaten sides (India and New Zealand), they would be hoping to win against Australia to have less pressure in the upcoming games.

Overcast weather is predicted for the day, as the first half will have some chances of the shower, which may result in a late start.

Players to watch out for

David Warner (447) must be eyeing to become the first player to reach 500 runs in this world cup. Also playing against their oldest opponent, there would be a lot of pressure to score runs at the top and that too against Archer and Wood. Warner needs to stay at wicket as much time as possible. The others can play around him.

Jofra Archer, England’s primary weapon in their bowling line up, needs to pick early wickets. Australia’s openers have always started well in the tournament, so Jofra has to break their opening partnership in the first few overs, and that would put pressure on the middle order which has not done anything significant so far in this World Cup.
