What a semi-final this is going to be. England and Australia have both produced quality performances, in between the occasional hiccup at the 2019 Cricket World Cup. We take a look at Thursday’s (11/7/2019) Cricket World Cup Semi Final 2019 match is between Australia and England.
When: Thursday 11th, July at 7:30PM (AEST)
Where: Edgbaston Cricket Ground, Birmingham
Bet: Bet On This Match HERE
The final spot in this weekend’s decider is up for grabs when the two proud nations square off at Edgbaston on Thursday night.
For a tournament favourite as resounding as England was, they have clearly felt the pressure. They’ve lost a couple of seemingly unlosable games but have kicked back into gear in time for the finals. Wins over India and New Zealand have filled their sails with wind, and they’ll be confident of recording another one over Australia.
The Aussies lost their last group stage match against South Africa, but their form prior to that was excellent and I’m happy to forgive the last performance, given eyes were firmly fixed on this stage of the tournament. Australia beat England during the group stage, and I am confident that they can and will do it again. They are over the odds in head-to-head betting.
