One of the most intriguing battles in world cricket is between England and Australia, and both teams are ready to lock horns once again at the iconic Lord’s Cricket Ground in the 32nd match of ICC Cricket World Cup 2019.
After losing to Sri Lanka in their previous game, England would be eyeing a comeback here to almost secure their position among the top four. Australia, on the other hand, would be looking to move up once again to the numero uno position and continue with their merry ways.
England vs Sri Lanka
Venue: Lord’s, London
Time: June 25, 03:00 PM
Lord’s will be offering good assistance to the seamers early on as the cloud covers will force the match to start with a delay. The surface, however, will give assistance to the batsmen but they have to be patient particularly when the ball is new and swinging.
