Today’s live cricket streaming international cricket is Australia v England 2nd semi-final, 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup.


July 11, Australia v England 2nd semi-final, 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup, Edgbaston, Birmingham

Some might have thought of the Australia versus England match as the final and what a glorious match it would have been at the home of cricket. However, as both teams face each other in the second semi-final, only one can qualify and stake their claim for the title. 

England have had a good run at Edgbaston and would not mind playing at this venue. However, the strip used will not be the same as in the match between England versus India and India versus Sri Lanka.

The pitch of choice this time would be two pitches to the right of the last used surface, which had the 59m boundary and hence the boundary on the other side will be a bit shorter this time.

England have had the wood over Australia in recent matches and had beaten Australia 5-0 when the Aussies toured England. When England last visited Down Under, they came back with a 4-1 victory.

With both Usman Khawaja and Shaun Marsh being ruled out of the World Cup due to injuries, the Aussies will have the option of looking towards Matthew Wade or Peter Handscomb to fill in for that middle-order spot, most likely to be number four.

It is probable that Australia will go for Matthew Wade ahead of Peter Handscomb, who has been piling up runs in the List A games. This will allow them some more firepower. However, most of Wade's success has come at the top of the order and he would have to adjust to the ebbs and flows of the middle order.

England have no issues with their playing XI and are looking a very tight unit, especially after the comeback of Jason Roy and will not make any changes to their team.

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

Australia- David Warner, Aaron Finch, Steven Smith, Matthew Wade, Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Alex Carey, Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Jason Behrendorff, Nathan Lyon

England- Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow, Joe Root, Eoin Morgan, Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler, Chris Woakes, Liam Plunkett, Jofra Archer, Adil Rashid, Mark Wood
