Match number 32 of the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup will be an exciting encounter between England and Australia at the home of cricket, Lord's.

Australia are already sitting pretty with 10 points and can afford a blip, but England would like to win this match at all costs to ensure that their World Cup campaign is back on track.

England have a pretty good record against Australia in recent times and have beaten them nine times out of the last 10 ODIs that they have played. But this also includes their 5-0 series win when Australia toured England and the Aussies have come a long way since then.

Out of the six matches that Australia have played in this tournament, they have won five and have only lost one game against India. After the loss, they now have three victories on the bounce and are looking in good rhythm.

England have suffered two slip-ups against Pakistan and Sri Lanka and one more loss will put them in a lot of trouble.

In a total of 147 ODI played between the two teams, England have won 61, while Australia have won 81. Australia and England recently faced each other in a warm-up match where Australia came out victorious.

England have lost two and won three of their last five matches, while Australia have lost just one and won the remaining four. Despite a few things going in favour of Australia, England will start as favourites in this match.

Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:

England- Jonny Bairstow, Jason Roy, Joe Root, Eoin Morgan (c), Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler (wk), Moeen Ali, Chris Woakes, Adil Rashid, Liam Plunkett, Jofra Archer

Australia- David Warner, Aaron Finch (c), Usman Khawaja, Steve Smith, Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Alex Carey (wk), Nathan Coulter-Nile, Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Adam Zampa
