ENG vs AUS Live Score T20 World Cup 2022 Live Streaming, Live Telecast- England vs Australia Live Score: ICC T20 World Cup 2022. The oldest rivals in cricket will be seen locking horns in the 26th match of the ICC T20 World Cup, at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG).

Australia is placed in the fifth position on the points table, winning one and losing one. Their net run rate was on the negative side due to a big loss against New Zealand in their tournament opener but the Aussies improved on it in their next game, defeating Sri Lanka by 7 wickets with 21 balls still remaining.

The Aussie skipper, Aaron has struggled throughout the tournament but the team has massive game-changers like Glenn Maxwell and Marcus Stoinis who have stood up at various times. There is a concern about Matthew Wade, who tested positive for COVID-19, he could probably miss out on this important match. On the other side, Adam Zampa, who missed out on the previous match due to COVID-19, may feature in this one.

England on the other hand started the tournament with a victory against Afghanistan, the memories of losing to Ireland in World Cups haunted England again, as rain helped Ireland win the match by a margin of 5 runs by the DLS method. Jos Buttler and his opening partner Alex Hales haven’t turned up for England so far in this tournament. Mark Wood and Sam Curran have been the stars with the ball. England will need some of their senior players to stand up and lead from the front.

Australia has the home advantage, but in a recent T20I series against England, they were thrashed 2-0 by their rivals.  Australia will come hard at England in this encounter. England’s confidence would be down after that upset against Ireland, which has made the points table more interesting but has dented their chances. This mouth-watering encounter has all the makings of going down to the wire.

ENG vs AUS Pitch Report:

The wicket at the MCG has been providing assistance to the pacers, but the ball comes nicely onto the bat when it gets old. The spinners will play a crucial role in the middle overs. The skipper winning the toss will look to bowl first and chase down the target under the light when it’s slightly easier to bat on.
