There was a delay in the toss of the match due to rain in the Super 12 Group 1, England vs Australia. It will be England versus Australia at Melbourne Cricket Ground on Friday. In the tournament, both sides have two points after playing as many matches. An improved net run rate sees England taking the fourth spot, while a poor net run rate sees Australia at the bottom. While England recently lost by 5 runs to Ireland via DLS method after rain-affected play, Australia recently defeated Sri Lanka by 7 wickets.
In both games, Jos Buttler has given Ben Stokes a new ball as a sign of his desire to give Stokes as much responsibility as possible. In spite of this, Jos Buttler hopes that Ben Stokes will join them, and with the kind of firepower both teams have, it is sure to be a great contest. On the field, which team will be able to execute its plans the best? While the rain threat continues to linger, let’s see if the MCG will be jam-packed.
