The Second Cricket Battle of ICC World Cup 2015

Dated: On Feb 14, 2015

Time of Match Start: 09.00 IST At Melbourne Cricket Ground

England Ready Lineup 

England under Eoin Morgan will play without expectations, taking into account their underprivileged ICC ODI practice. Taking to thoughts of the captaincy away from Alastair Cook has done little to change the fate of the party, with the exception of a few victories against the India in the recent tri-series. The England ODI form has been dismal in the past two years. From 2013, England only managed two wins in the series - against New Zealand in February 2013 and West Indies in February 2014 one-off wins against Scotland and the Ireland not considered. Although they have a decent stick line-up with the manifestation of Eoing Morgan, Ian Bell, Ravi Bopara and Moeen Ali, among others, only a little pressure is necessary for England to crack. A seam attack of quality is what they will count to do the job.

Team news:

Chris Woakes is likely to be included in the lineup and could open the bowling with the English cricket soldier James Anderson, while Steven Finn and Stuart Broad will serve as back-up. England is unlikely to include James Tredwell in the line-up less that the nature of the terrain requires.

England Ready Squad: 

  1. Eoin Morgan (captain)
  2. Ian Bell 
  3. Moeen Ali
  4.  James Taylor
  5.  Joe Root 
  6. Ravi Bopara
  7. Jos Buttler (W)
  8.  Chris Woakes

  10. Steve Finn 
  11. James Anderson

Australia Ready Lineup

The co-organizers of the ICC 2015 World Cup are in superb arrangement form and having lost only one of their last thirteen (13) ODIs. They overcame the India and England with ease in the tri-serie has come to an end and seek together to extend their good form in the World Cup. With explosive drummers as David Warner and Aaron Finch at the top of the agenda, and with both players in good shape, the Australia may have the best pair of opening in the tournament. The order of the Middle too is packed with players such as George Bailey, Shane Watson, Steven Smith, Glenn Maxwell and Mitchell Marsh. In fact, batting order of the Australia goes all the way down to number 10 as Brad Haddin, Mitchell Johnson, and Mitchell Starc can pack quite a punch as well. The bowling unit is also well balanced despite the absence of James Faulkner.

Team Position:

Michael Clarke and James Faulkner are excluded from this game while the Australia are unlikely to include-arm left spinner Xavier Doherty. Pat Cummins and Hazlewood will fight for a place in the lineup with Johnson and Starc than other front-line stimulators. Another option for the Australia is to include both at the expense of Mitchell Marsh.

Australia Team Squad: 

  1. George Bailey (captain)
  2. David Warner
  3. Aaron Finch 
  4. Shane Watson
  5. Steven Smith
  6. Glenn Maxwell
  7.  Mitchell Marsh
  8.  Mitchell Johnson 
  9. Brad Haddin (wk) 
  10. Mitchell Starc
  11. Josh Hazlewood 
  12. Pat Cummins.

Beware and B Careful:

David Warner: James Anderson has said that the opener Australian hot head, which is just another spat far from suspension, did not need "too encouragement" to be excited. Warner could well decide to make it to England, but with the bat, and is it is big, it will have a devastating effect on the team of Eoin Morgan.

Eoin Morgan: Shortly after the tri-serie, the captain of England began his spirit, games to destabilize Stimulator premium Mitchell Johnson of the Australia. Morgan could be slightly wary du-arm quick left, but it it only managed to get the best from Johnson, it would do wonders for the confidence of England.

as Team Numbers:

2: The number of times England won against the Australia in their last 10 meetings ODI. They also won twice in six matches against the Australia World Cup and their last World Cup win came in 1992.

1: The number of individual centuries in Australia-England the World Cup. The century by Kevin Pietersen scored one in World Cup 2007, however it came in a losing cause. Big batsman Ricky Ponting's 86 in the same game of WC 2007 is the highest by an Australian against England at the World Cup.

George Bailey Thoughts:

“In our assessment team in the cricket games I have played is good bloody I think, and I will stand behind this and what we have achieved as a group”.
