The hosts claimed a position in the top four by defeating both India and New Zealand and registering two back to back victories in the latter half of the tournament. Despite starting their tournament with the tournament's favourites, the team struggled in the middle of the World Cup. However, the Eoin Morgan led side is back in action and will look forward to maintain their winning streak by entering the finals of the World Cup. Let’s have a look at their key players who’ll play a crucial role in this clash.

1. Jonny Bairstow- This English opening batsman has smashed two consecutive centuries in the most crucial stage of the tournament for the team, which eventually helped them to finish at the third position in the points table. He smashed a brilliant 111 runs off 109 deliveries in a must-win clash against the Men in Blue. Against New Zealand, he scored 106 runs off 99 deliveries with an exceptional strike rate of 107.07.

2. Mark Wood- This English fast bowler claimed three crucial wickets in the game against the Black Caps which helped the team to restrict the New Zealand players to mere 186 runs. In his 9-over spell, he claimed three wickets with an exceptional economy of 3.78. Against Sri Lanka, despite team’s poor performance, Mark managed to pick up 3 wickets and gave just 40 runs in his 8-over spell. He will play an important role in restricting the Australian batsmen to a low total today.
