Our Prediction:

England will win

England – Australia Match Prediction | 29-08-2019 06:00

So, bat first and win the game would be the mantra. Batting second gets tougher as the pitches slow down. Also, the teams that have batted first, have won most of the matches in this tournament. Chasing a target is never easy in knockout matches. AUS vs ENG Match Prediction:In a high-pressure game, runs on the board make a huge difference.

Their preparations for this marquee tournament, however, did not go as per their liking as they found themselves struggling at one stage in the recent four-day test against Ireland at the Lord's, and that game would have served as an eye-opener for them. The hosts will look to regain the urn from Australia who had dominated them in the previous edition Down Under. England have been basking in the World Cup glory for the last couple of weeks but now it's time for them to turn their attention towards the Ashes - the biggest rivalry in test cricket.

ENG vs AUS Dream11 Prediction

David Warner: The opener is a key man for Australia irrespective of the format. He will be stepping into the test arena for the first time after the completion of his ban and will have a point to prove. Warner was the second-best batsman in the World Cup having scored 647 runs in 10 matches and he will look to translate his ODI success to the longest format.

While England has a daunting batting line-up, Australia has been there in such big games on plenty of occasions. Australia lost the last game againstSouth Africawhich meant they slipped to No.2 asIndiaovertook. Lets find out who will win 2nd semi-final of world cup 2019 between Australia vs England today match prediction. They know how to win pressure games and this is where the Englishmen will be tested. Earlier, they were slated to meetNew Zealandin Manchester but instead, theyll now face the hosts.

This is the same venue where the two teams faced-off in the World Cup semi-final not long ago and the Aussies will want to avenge their humiliating loss from that game. The 71st edition of the Ashes will kick-off from August 1 with the opening test at the Edgbaston in Birmingham. Live telecast of the first Ashes test is scheduled to begin at 11 AM local time each day of the match.

All-rounders: Ben Stokes and Moeen Ali are two genuine all-rounders that will be expected to contribute with both the bat and ball. Moeen Ali's bowling is going to be a factor if the match gets into the third and fourth day as well. We believe Ben Stokes is the best batsman in this English side right now in test match cricket after Joe Root and his bowling is going to be crucial too.

The confidence in the camp must be dented after that. It doesnt get easier as the hosts now face the in-form Aussies. England suffered a shocking defeat against Sri Lanka in the last game. Barring the defeat against India, the defending champions have been clinical in all their victories. The clash of the heavyweights is going to produce an intriguing battle.

Australia are also faced with the opener conundrum - they are yet to take a decision on David Warner's partner and will have to choose between Marcus Harris and Cameron Bancroft. Nathan Lyon is the lone specialist spinner in the side and a confirmed starter for this opening game along with James Pattinson, Pat Cummins, Steven Smith, skipper Tim Paine and Usman Khawaja who has now been cleared fit to play. David Warner, Steven Smith and Cameron Bancroft have returned to the Australian test setup following their completion of the ball-tampering ban. Wicketkeeper Matthew Wade, pace bowler James Pattinson and all-rounder Mitchell Marsh have also been called up to the 17-man squad. Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood and Peter Siddle are fighting for the third seamer spot and it is Starc who will likely be the selectors' preference.

The arch-rivals meet in yet another huge game of the tournament. England loves playing on surfaces that are batting-friendly and this venue is likely to provide that. But the conditions will be pretty different at Edgbaston. However, the defending champions also wont mind playing on such a strip as their batsmen are also in good form. In the group stage, Australia had defeated the hosts at Lords.

This is not something that makes a lot of sense to us especially considering the manner in which Starc dominated the English batsmen in the previous Ashes series but that is the way the Australian teams seems hellbent ongoing. Mitchell Starc is not going to be picked for the first game because the noise from the camp suggests he is the same kind of bowler as Pat Cummins.

Thursday is likely to be windy with plenty of cloud cover while Friday could see a few rain interruptions. The weather will be cool for all the five days with temperatures as high as 20-21 degrees Celsius. The first Ashes test could be affected by rain as intermittent showers have been forecast throughout the match. The meteorological department is expecting thundery downpours on the eve of the match.

James Vince, therefore, will continue to open the batting alongside Jonny Bairstow. England will continue to be without their first-choice opener in Jason Roy as he has failed to regain full fitness from the hamstring injury that has kept him out of the last two games. Moeen Ali came in for criticism for his batting last time out and Liam Dawson is an option to bring in, but Ali generally appears to have the backing of the selectors. Liam Plunkett could also return, serving up swing as opposed to Mark Woods seam.
