Finally, The Ashes match arrives in this year’s World Cup.
It will certainly be hard to tell who will come out on top in the game at Lord’s. While England may have been favourites to win the tournament at the start and managed to win the last ODI series against the Aussies 5-0, England suffered a stunning loss against Sri Lanka in their last game. Plus, after Australia they have to take on the two strongest sides left in the tournament to face: India and New Zealand.
Australia meanwhile sit above England in the table (second behind the Kiwis), and while they too also have to face New Zealand in their next game, their last group match is against already eliminated South Africa. England therefore are the side who most need the win.
England v Australia is on Sky Main Event and Sky Cricket at 10.00 (play starts 10.30).
