Two composite units in Australia and England will be colliding in the second semi-final of ICC World Cup 2019 which will be played at the Edgbaston in Birmingham. The first semi-final saw India and New Zealand square off at the Emirates Old Trafford but due to persistent rains, the match was shifted to reserve day.
England lost their way in the middle but two late wins over India and New Zealand kept them in the semi-finals and now they will be facing Australia who finished second in the points table. This is definitely a great opportunity for England who are seeking their first-ever World Cup triumph.
The English team have reached the finals on three occasions in which in the 1987 edition they lost to Australia in the finals, on the other hand, Australia definitely knows how to win when it comes to the semi-finals as they have a winning percentage of 100 in the semifinals.
Australia: Champions in 1987, 1999, 2003, 2007 and 2015 edition.
England: Runners up in 1979, 1987 and 1992 editions.
