Narendra Modi Stadium (Ahmedabad)
England's hopes for a semi-final berth have been dashed, but Australia still harbors ambitions of advancing to the next stage. Let's delve into the betting odds and cricket markets for this World Cup encounter in Ahmedabad, India.
Head-to-Head RecordAustralia has claimed victory in four of their last five ODI meetings with England, with the English last beating the Australians in this format in 2020. In overall ODI history, Australia has secured 87 wins against England's 63.
England's CampaignThe reigning World Cup champions, England, have faced a series of setbacks in this tournament, losing five of their six matches, including four consecutive defeats. Their sole win came against Bangladesh, who have also been eliminated from semi-final contention.
While England cannot reach the semi-finals, they have pride and Champions Trophy qualification to play for. The top seven teams at the end of the round-robin stage in this World Cup will secure spots in the next Champions Trophy.
Opening batsman Dawid Malan and former captain Joe Root have been England's standout performers with the bat. Malan has amassed 236 runs in six innings, while Root has contributed 175 runs in six matches. However, additional support has been lacking, and the onus will be on all-rounders Ben Stokes and Moeen Ali to step up, especially against Australia.
Australia's AscentAustralia's 2023 Cricket World Cup journey started on shaky ground with consecutive defeats to India and South Africa. They have since rallied with four consecutive wins over Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Netherlands, and New Zealand. A victory against England would all but secure their spot in the semi-finals.
However, Australia's XI will be missing key all-rounders Glenn Maxwell and Mitchell Marsh for this match. Marsh has returned home for personal reasons, while Maxwell has been sidelined due to a concussion. Maxwell's absence is particularly significant, given his recent feat of scoring the fastest century in Cricket World Cup history (from 40 balls).
The return of opener Travis Head from injury provides a substantial boost for Australia. He made an immediate impact, scoring a century upon his return against New Zealand. With Marsh unavailable, the onus may fall on fellow all-rounders Cameron Green and Marcus Stoinis, especially with the ball.
Betting Tips for England vs AustraliaDespite the absence of Maxwell and Marsh, Australia is favored to win this match against a low-confidence England team that has not tasted victory in their last four attempts.
Australia has won three ODIs in Ahmedabad, a venue where England has only triumphed once and suffered a recent defeat in October 2023.
