Pitch And Weather Conditions

The wicket prepared for the game will be decent for batting. The surface played pretty well in the previous two games played at this venue. The quick bowlers will need to work hard to take wickets on this pitch. The weather forecast for the game on light rain with a gentle breeze.

Venue

Edgbaston Cricket Ground in Birmingham is going to host second semifinal game between England and Australia. The home side will take heart from the fact they have won their last four matches played at this venue. Overall in World Cups, Australia has an excellent record over England.

Toss: To Bowl

The side that wins the toss would be looking to bowl first and restrict the opposition to a modest total. The quick bowlers might get some help from the surface.

Winning Prediction

England will be outright favorites to win their semifinal game against Australia. The host nation has certainly raised their game and notched up back-to-back victories against quality teams like India and New Zealand. The top-order has shown excellent form in the last couple of games for England. Jonny Bairstow and Joe Root have shown consistency with the bat in this World Cup.

On the other hand, Australia has suffered a setback of sorts with injuries to Usman Khuwaja and Marcus Stoinis. World Champions will need to raise their game with bat and ball to beat in-form England in this contest. Expect England to beat Australia in this semifinal game at Birmingham.
