England-Australia match preview

Australia have most convenient position on the points table. So far Aussies have lost one of their 6 matches, won 5 and got 10 points. Although they are in the second position on the points table, they need 2 points to reach the semifinals. So, they need only one victory from their remaining 3 matches. They have to face tough opponents like England, New Zealand and South Africa.

On the other hand, hosts England are in the fourth position of the points table. They were supposed to be in the safest place. But after getting defeated by Sri Lanka, the situation has become such that they have the possibility of exit before the semifinals. Tough oppositions such as Australia, India and New Zealand are their next opponents. After winning 4 out of 6 matches, England have 8 points. They have to win in at least one match to retain their existence in the fight. But the history says, England could not mark victory against India, Australia and New Zealand in world cups in the last 27 years.
