T20 World Cup, ENG vs AUS: In the 26th match of T20, there is a clash between Australia and England. England have once again won the toss and have decided to field first. That is, David Warner and captain Aaron Finch are opening the innings for Australia. Australia will now need to score big, so that England cannot get much of the batting advantage later. The good thing is that both Captain Finch and Warner are in form. Both the teams are reaching this match with two wins each. In such a situation, it will be a domination-proven contest in this considered difficult group.
Australia had to struggle against South Africa in the first match of the World Cup, but the team registered an impressive victory over Sri Lanka. At the same time, in the match against Sri Lanka, the opening pair of captain Aaron Finch and David Warner were seen returning to the rhythm. Australia have included second spinner Ashton Agar in place of Mitchell Marsh in their XI. Australia has included a spinner at the cost of a batsman, and this is because the Dubai pitch is more supportive of spinners. In a way, this is also a sign to Team Virat, who will play against New Zealand at the same ground on Sunday.
