England vs Australia will play in the 26th match of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 at Melbourne Cricket Ground, Melbourne
England will be gutted with themselves after losing their last game against Ireland by 5 runs (DLS Method) and will now treat this game as a must-win game. They will expect a better batting display from their batters.
Bowling first, their batters did a decent job and bowled out the Irish for just 157 runs. Mark Wood and Liam Livingstone were the pick from the bowlers and picked up 3 wickets each.
With the bat, their batters looked ordinary and kept losing wickets regularly. Dawid Malan and Moeen ali were the top scorers and scored 35 and 24* runs respectively. This is a very crucial game in context of the group.
After losing their first game against New Zealand, the hosts bounced back brilliantly in their last game against Sri Lanka and won it by 7 wickets. They were clinical with both bat and ball.
Bowling first, their bowlers bowled very well and restricted the Lankans below 160. Pat Cummins, Mitch Starc, and Josh Hazlewood all bowled very well and picked up a wicket each.
With the bat, they lost David Warner and Mitch Marsh cheaply but Aaron Finch and Glenn Maxwell batted very well in the middle overs and scored 31* and 23 runs respectively. In the end, Marcus Stoinis was his brilliant best and scored 59* runs off just 18 balls and completely killed the game.
