ICC World Cup 2019: AUS vs ENG; Warner, Finch and Bairstow to go all guns blazing

By Chaitanya Laxman

A confident Australia and a pumped up England will lock horns against each other in the second semi-final of the ICC World Cup 2019 on Thursday. Considering the firepower both teams have and their recent form, it is inevitable that this game will be an exciting contest.

For the Dream11 Captain, watch out for these three players as they are in tremendous form and are capable of turning the match in no time.

#3. Aaron Finch:

The Australian skipper has scored runs at crucial moments and is in prime touch. He is a big match player and hence can be expected to up the ante in the second semi-final against England.

Batting average in 2019: 54.33

Total runs in 2019: 1141

Batting average in England: 44.18

Total runs in England: 972

Batting average against England: 52.20

Total runs against England: 1253

#2. Jonny Bairstow:

With two hundreds in the last two innings, Bairstow has made a massive statement. He is pumped up and has shown great intent in the last two games.

Importantly he has batted unfazed and is looking good to make more big scores. Watch out for his play against Mitchell Starc.

Batting average in 2019: 48.37

Total runs in 2019: 774

Batting average in England: 59.87

Total runs in England: 1916

Batting average against Australia: 38.71

Total runs against Australia: 542

#1. David Warner:

With three hundreds and three fifties in nine innings in this World Cup, Warner has wrecked havoc in this World Cup. He starts slowly but then uses the middle overs to accelerate the run-rate. But most importantly he has been immensely successful in his approach.

His presence in the middle will be a big factor in this game and hence Australia will expect him to play another long innings.

Batting average in 2019: 79.75

Total runs in 2019: 638

Batting average in England: 55.37

Total runs in England: 886

Batting average against England: 33.21

Total runs against England: 631
