The Australian cricket team currently rules the points table with 12 points in the seven games played in the tournament so far. Australia, the five times World Cup champions, have set a great record in the tournament and will look forward to defend the cup. The team won their previous encounter against the hosts by a solid margin of 64 runs and will look forward to continue their winning streak in the tournament. Let’s have a look at their key players.

1. Aaron Finch- This Australian opener registered a brilliant century against the host in only 116 balls with a strike rate of 86.21 before losing his wicket to Jofra Archer. The Australian skipper has been extremely consistent with his bat in the tournament and has helped the team register some crucial wins in the current World Cup. With 496 runs in the tournament, he is also the second highest run-scorer so far in the World Cup. Finch and David Warner in the beginning provides the team a brilliant start to the innings and help them register some quick runs on board.

2. Mitchell Starc- Mitchell Starc who contributed enormously in the team’s 2015 World Cup triumph, is currently the most reliable wicket-taker for the team. With 19 wickets in his hand, he is the highest wicket taker so far in the tournament. Against England, Starc yet again managed to claim four wickets and gave away only 43 runs in his 8.4 over spell with a low economy of 4.96.
