cwc19 semi final 2 Australia bat first against england

EDGBASTON – Five-time champions Australia and six-time semi-finalists England meet today at Edgbaston in an eagerly-awaited match with the winners playing New Zealand in the final at Lord’s on Sunday.

Aaron Finch won the toss and chose to bat first against the hosts, led by Eion Morgan.

An England team with no serious injury concerns goes into the Birmingham game on the back of convincing wins against India and New Zealand but it also proved unexpectedly vulnerable earlier in the league stage with losses to Sri Lanka, Pakistan and Australia.

Australia have never lost any of their seven previous World Cup semi-finals — although they did tie with South Africa at Edgbaston 20 years ago before advancing into the final thanks to their superior net run-rate from the preceding ‘Super Six’ stage.

England had won 10 of their last 11 ODIs against Australia prior to the World Cup.
