  • England’s shock defeat at the hands of Ireland, the biggest surprise of the this T20 World Cup by a long way, has thrown this ‘Super 12’s’ group wide open and turned this game against bitter rivals Australia into a massive one from their perspective.
  • The likelihood is that England won’t kneejerk into any changes, although the pressure will be on certain players like opener Alex Hales, especially with Phil Salt waiting in the wings for an opportunity.


  • Australia looked set for a second successive ‘Super 12’s’ defeat before a blistering innings from Marcus Stoinis rescued them and forced victory over Sri Lanka, their first of the tournament so far.
  • Matthew Wade, the only specialist wicket-keeper in the Australia squad has tested positive for Covid-19, but despite that is still likely to feature in this match with the rules not preventing anyone from playing should they be Covid-positive and Wade’s symptoms are understood to be mild.


Make no mistake, this is a critical encounter for these two nations with each having already suffered one ‘Super 12’s’ defeat already and the losing team here faces what will likely be an unassailable mountain to climb should they wish to qualify for the semi-finals. The two teams met in a three-match series leading up to this tournament, which England won 0-2 so confidence will be high among Jos Buttler’s side. Covid-19 cases within the Australia camp have not helped their preparations with Adam Zampa and now Wade have been affected since the start of the competition and they could easily have lost against Sri Lanka if not for Stoinis’ crucial knock. It feels like England are better equipped to deal with the pressure of such a crucial game and the mental aspect of having already beaten Australia twice this month cannot be underestimated. Therefore, consider backing England to get past the Aussies once again and bank a crucial two points.
