So, the Champions Trophy 2017 is going towards its end with last game of the Group A being played on 10th of June 2017. Both England and Australia have been unbeaten so far in the tournament and that’s quite a contrasting stat because England have won both their matches played so far while both the games for Australia were washed out and they secured just 1 point in both matches. So, it’s kind of a tricky situation for Australia and they have a must-win game ahead.
As for our prediction, we’d go with Australia despite all odds. Yes, England are playing at their best but Australia were also at their best in both the matches they played so far before the games were washed out. But still we’d say it’s a 50-50 chance for both the sides and we are going to have a great encounter at the end of the day.
Australia were in full control in their last game against Bangladesh and had the rain stayed away for another 4 overs then it would have been a different story altogether. But now we have to live with it and see how Australians tackle this tricky situation that has been created for them. Warner looked in great form in the last game and Finch has been doing it for them before that. So, they have a perfect opening duo that can really destroy any bowling line in the world. On no. 3 they have the most reliable batsman of the world in the form of Steve Smith so if their top 3 get going against England then England will really be in all sorts of troubles. And going down the order, some pinch hitters like Maxwell, Henriques, Head and Wade can give them a great boost.
As for their bowling, Starc seemed to have got into his own as he picked up 4 wickets for just 29 runs against Bangladesh. Hazlewood gave a special performance against New Zealand by picking up 6 for 52. So, these two will be in the spotlight against England as well.
England won both their matches played so far quite convincingly, and one man who performed brilliantly in both the matches is Joe Root. He scored a brilliant unbeaten hundred against Bangladesh and then he played wonderfully for his 64 against New Zealand. Hales is also getting runs having scored a couple of good fifties in both the games played so far. England have good batting line and other than Jason Roy everyone else seems to be in great batting form and chips in with a handy performance whenever the need be. They bat deep and can challenge Australia on the day.
One bowler who can turn it around for them single handedly is Liam Plunkett. He has got 8 wickets in just two matches and is expected to trouble Australia as well. Besides him, they have Ball, Wood and Adil Rashid who can play critical role in the game against Australia.
