Live stream Australia vs England – where and when
This Cricket World Cup match takes place at Edgbaston in Birmingham, the regular home venue of Warwickshire County Cricket Club.
Play begins at 10.30am BST on Thursday, July 11. For those tuning in from Australia that’s a 7.30pm AEST start.
England’s recent ODI record against Australia had been near perfect, having won nine of the last ten encounters ahead of the World Cup, but their group phase match saw the Aussies ease their way to a 64-run win at Lord’s. England’s confidence will have grown since that defeat however, with their opening order massively boosted with the return of Jason Roy from his hamstring injury.
Having entered the tournament somewhat under the radar with little hype, an early defeat to India saw Australia written off by plenty of pundits. As the tournament has progressed they’ve looked arguably the most assured side in the competition. Steve Smith and David Warner have both had a huge impact on their return to the Australia’s batting order. Meanwhile, Mitchell Starc’s 26 and counting wicket haul at the 2019 Cricket World Cup along with Nathan Lyon’s impact as a world class spinner has provided skipper Aaron Finch with real options for mixing up the bowling.
