Head to Head –
These two eternal rivals played 130 matches so far in their history and among those match Australia dominated by winning 73 matches while England won 49 matches. The other 8 matches were abandoned.
England’s record against Australia in recent times isn’t very good. If we take their last match into our consideration then we see that Australia won 4 of those matches while England’s only win came in last year’s January when Australia went to England and that win came by very small margin. Otherwise, the matches basically dominated by Australia. So if we take these stats into consideration then there is no doubt that Australia is the favorites to win this match.
However, things aren’t that easy for either team. Australia’s recent ODI performance was found lacking while England is in terrible shape after loosing the home series to Sri Lanka. There’s nothing to be done about this and from our point of view England is the underdogs not only in this match but also in this series.
Our prediction for this match is Australia will win this match.
