CWC: England vs Australia Preview

Ashes rivals Australia and England meet up at the 2023 Cricket World Cup, with England looking to spoil Australia’s chances of making the semi-finals. With England languishing at the bottom of the current table, England has a mathematical chance of reviving their Cup defense but it looks grim.

Australia will be without their middle-order enforcers in Glen Maxwell who is nursing an injury from a golf cart mishap and Mitchel Marsh who has returned home for personal reasons.

Interestingly enough, former England captain Joe Root got tongues wagging when he declared that, despite England sitting last on the table ahead of their final three matches, he would “have this team every day over the Australians”. Whilst it comes as no surprise to see such a supportive statement from one of their senior teammates, the numbers hardly back it up.

Australia’s game may have already gone up a level with the injection of Travis Head, illustrated by their near-record powerplay score of 118-0 against New Zealand. Head has dominated England in this format, amassing seven 50+ scores (1x 100) from his 13 ODI innings at an average of nearly 53 and strike rate of 104.

Based on the current form and the rivalry to back it up, Australia looks like favorites for the game, however, you never know with this English team.
