England and Australia will play today T20 match of the ICC T20 World Cup at 7:30 PM on Saturday at Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai. You can catch the live streaming of the game on Disney+ Hotstar. Both teams are heading into the game unbeaten. Before the 2021 T20 World Cup started, England was favored to win the trophy. But now, Australia is a contender for the trophy since they have performed well in the first two games.
Australia's batting failed to impress in the low-scoring match against South Africa, but they were able to chase down Sri Lanka's total on Thursday. The biggest positive out of the Sri Lanka game was that Aaron Finch and David Warner got back to their best.
Warner is a player who has had some rough patches, but he has had some great innings as well. His performance against Sri Lanka got him some attention and showed the cricketing public his talent. Josh Hazlewood, Mitchell Starc, and Pat Cummins, the Australian pace trio, who are known for their fiery pace, have lived up to their expectations. Adam Zampa impressed everyone in the match against Sri Lanka.
Zampa completely changed the momentum of the game with his double strike in the middle overs. It's worth mentioning that Glenn Maxwell and Marcus Stoinis were the only ones to concede more than 50 runs in bowling on Thursday.
England's biggest and toughest challenge in the tournament should be coming up against Australia. England has rarely been tested in the T20 World Cup 2021. Against West Indies, the bowlers did almost all the jobs, and the batters were just for the sake of showing. The same happened against Sri Lanka as the bowlers again restricted the opponent to a mere total. The top-order chased down the total in the most dominant fashion.
Moeen Ali has been impressive, and he has already obtained four wickets. Tymal Mills has been brilliant at bowling. He has done this especially well in the later stages of the game.
Adil Rashid might not have done well in the recent game against Bangladesh, but he can be very useful against the Australians. There is not a lot of dew around in the second innings, but teams have preferred to chase in the tournament so far.
