Australia came out victorious after a smashing performance with the bowl, crippled England batting has daunted England’s qualification chances into the semi-finals of ICC world cup 2019.
England entered into the World Cup as clear favorites and in their home conditions and a consistent good form in ODIs they were rightly written off as the most competent contenders of the world cup trophy. They were playing positive and aggressive cricket and winning with huge margins. but today after losing to Australia in a relatively low scoring game they have now lost a total of 3 games out of their 7. Which is indeed a worry for the Eoin Morgan’s men in blue. England has lost to Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and Australia now.
After the shocking loss to down and under Sri Lankan team many eyebrows were raised however there was no threat of not qualifying to the next stage of the mega tournament however now after the ENG v AUS match things have changed on for England as they don’t have much margin to go forward. They have to win their remaining 2 matches to deny any qualification chances to PAKISTAN, SRI LANKA or BANGLADESH.
Eoin Morgan has expressed his worry about the qualification to the semi-finals as he believes that he still has enough chance to proceed to the next stage and they can do it on their own without much hassle. England is facing even a stronger team up next. Yes, they are going to face Team India in next world cup group match (IND vs ENG) on 30th-June at Edgbaston Birmingham. That will be a crucial match for both the teams.
England v Australia (ENG vs AUS) MATCH RECAP AND MATCH SUMMARY
England’s Team allowed Australia to get hold of the game till they lost their first at 173-1, Finch made a glorious century but got out on a short ball right after it. England eventually did fairly well in the latter half of the Australian innings, restricting Australia to only 285-7 which was not such a huge total in lords. England’s bowling was impressive in the death overs as they took wickets regularly. After restricting England to a relatively manageable total it was up to the English batsmen to play some disciplined cricket and win it for England however they were unable to do so courtesy some splendid bowling by Jason Behrendorff, the young fast bowler who surprised England batters by taking 5 wickets in his first match. As much of the damage came from Behrendorff the main striker MITCHEL STARC did what he does best, took wickets and wrapped up English hopes of winning the match by taking 4 good wickets.
Let’s see how England turns up for the upcoming challenge after this demoralizing defeat from their rivals Australia.
