ENG vs AUS 2024 Highlights 6-8-2024

Watch cricket video highlights of ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024 seventeenth match between England vs Australia. Venue of the match will be Bridgetown.

At one extreme, the game between Oman and Namibia saw totals of 109 all out and 109 for 6, while at the other end of the spectrum, Scotland’s charge to 90 for 0 from 10 overs between the rains against England generated remarkably varied results for batting. These results were obtained from four World Cup matches at Kensington Oval. But against Oman, no team has scored more than Australia’s 164 for 5. The new surface for this day game encounter is supposed to be the greatest on the square, but the sides may have to deal with an unpredictable forecast.

Reece Topley replacing Wood is the only substitution England might think about, and it’s expected that the seamers would alternate throughout the competition. After being rested for the Oman game, in which Mitchell Starc left the pitch due to cramps, Cummins is expected to make a comeback. Nathan Ellis would probably lose out if Starc kept his spot, as he is thought to be OK. Since Marsh is still unable to bowl, Australia will probably stick with Stoinis and Maxwell as their all-rounders to provide cover.

After replacing Eoin Morgan as captain in the summer of 2022, Jos Buttler guided England to their second Twenty20 title in his first significant assignment. However, things have not gone exactly as well as planned since then. After England’s early elimination from the 50-over World Cup, concerns about Buttler’s leadership—both as captain and as coach, under Matthew Mott—grew. Recently, Buttler has appeared more irritable when questioned about the team’s shortcomings. Since training with Rajasthan Royals coach Sid Lahiri during the IPL, his batting form has improved, but England still needs to win.

Glenn Maxwell has been on a very astonishing run since he hit a century not out on 55 balls against the West Indies back in February. He has scored 115 at an average of 8.21 in 14 T20 innings for Australia and Royal Challengers Bengaluru, with five ducks; his last two runs have lasted only one ball each. His recent T20I record vs England is not much better, having scored five single digits in six matches since 2020. But Australia will not be losing hope just yet. “We are confident that Maxi will win us games,” Marsh stated during the news conference held prior to the contest. On Saturday, who would have guessed he wouldn’t find his touch?

This enlarged T20 World Cup format’s first really heavyweight match is packed with subplots and history. The defending champions under Jos Buttler, who want to be the first side to win the trophy again, go on the Australian winning machine, the 2021 edition’s winners and the current Test and ODI cricket world champions, in a replay of the 2010 World T20 final at Kensington Oval. And that’s before adding the Ashes to the mix for afterwards.

England is already under more strain after sharing the points in their opening match against Scotland because to the rain in Bridgetown (and that after conceding 90 runs from 10 overs without recording a wicket in a lukewarm bowling showing). If they lose to their most seasoned opponents, their chances of making it to the Super 8 might be jeopardized by the dangers of net run-rate computations, or worse.

England’s home series against Pakistan was impacted by weather, which has evidently hindered their preparation for this campaign after nearly six months without playing Twenty20 together. The Scotland match was the third of five that England had to forfeit. Buttler will be eager for things to go their way on Saturday, if only to prevent more questions about the team’s terrible ODI World Cup defense from coming up. It does not take much for a side to click in this format, and England looked in decent shape when they did get on the field against Pakistan.

Under the easygoing guidance of Mitchell Marsh, Australia would want nothing more than to contribute to the English feeling of suspense, having assisted them in forcing them out of the competition in India on route to winning the title. In T20, meanwhile, their head-to-head record is less remarkable; in the seven completed games, including the 2010 final, England has prevailed six times.

Australia managed to avert disaster against Oman earlier in the week, thanks to David Warner and Marcus Stoinis’ expertise in challenging batting circumstances, despite a wobble with the bat. After a high-scoring tour of the Caribbean in December, it appears that boxing smart may be the way to go; surfaces in the Caribbean, not to mention those for games hosted in the USA, have already left teams scratching their heads. Instead of the “slug-fest” England had braced themselves for.

Warner, speaking of Warner, may not play against England in national colors again, so another game-winning performance would probably lessen the likelihood of their seeing each other in the knockout stages. Jofra Archer is the player on the opposite side of the card. He is prepared to play Australia in any format for the first time since 2020, having just returned from an emotional maiden performance at Kensington Oval. Is Mark Wood able to ignite England’s campaign the way he did in the Ashes last summer? Will Pat Cummins return to torment his former adversary once more? It’s about time to rumble, seconds out.
