Cricket World Cup 2019 has hit full swing! While a few matches got washed out due to the rain, most of the big matches were quite exciting. After the India vs Pakistan match, up next is England vs Australia: a rivalry which goes as far back as modern-day cricket. Let us take a closer look at this match and see who the odds support.
England vs Australia at Cricket World Cup Tournaments
The two teams have met each other at the World Cup 6 times, where Australia holds the upper hand – having won five out of those six encounters in the past. The most recent of these happened in the 2015 world cup, where Australia won by a massive margin of 111 runs!
Australia holds the upper hand over England when it comes to The Ashes as well, as the Aussies won it in the 2017-18 season by winning the five-test series by 4-0.
Who Will Win the ENG vs AUS Match at World Cup 2019?
Given the current state of both these teams, it appears that England is indeed the stronger contender to win the England vs Australia match at the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. Odds currently support England at 56% while Australia has a 44% chance of winning the match – making it a pretty close match to call.
Furthermore, given that the match is being played on English turf, it is expected that England will have the home ground and the home crowd advantage against the Australian team, which appears somewhat shaky.
