The stage is set for the oldest rivalry to transpire as England locks horns with Australia tomorrow at the Mecca of cricket, Lord’s. Having humiliated by Sri Lanka in their previous encounter, the hosts would be eyeing to land a counter-punch against the Kangaroos. Meanwhile, Australia has been one of the most dominant forces in this World Cup. With Aaron Finch at the helm, the reigning champions will be hoping to register another comprehensive win when they take on their arch-rivals, England. England and Eoin Morgan find themselves precariously placed in the points table as they have to win two out of their remaining three games.
