Birmingham, July 11, Thursday at 03:00 PM IST
The Ashes Rivals – England and Australia will lock horns in the second semi-final at Birmingham tomorrow to secure a spot in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 final.
The hosts England resurrected their campaign with two back to back wins against India and New Zealand in the last two league games to seal a spot in the semi-finals and are one of the favourites to lift the trophy while Australia – the five times trophy winners- have remained the favourites from the first game with their dominating performance in almost each game.
The two teams have faced each other twice in the tournament- in warmup games and league stage and on both occasions, Australia turned out to be the winner.
So, can they make it third over England or will the hosts manage the win where it matters the most?
The clash will begin at 03:00 PM IST
