Arch rivals Australia and England will square off against each other at Edgbaston. This is a must-win game for Australia who had both their games washed off before this encounter. The pressure will be on the Aussies to get a result and hence it will be a mouth-watering contest.
The Australian pace attack which boasts of James Pattinson, Mitchell Starc, John Hastings, Josh Hazlewood can trouble any batting order in any conditions and this will be something that Steve Smith will be looking to makes use of.
The batting also possesses a strong unit of David Warner, Chris Lynn, Steven Smith and Glenn Maxwell. All of them are match-winners on their own day and have the capability to destroy any bowling attack.
Meanwhile, England, who are the hosts of the Champions Trophy, will be looking to maintain their winning momentum. The batting unit featuring Alex Hales, Joe Root along with the all-around skills of Ben Stokes and Moeen Ali makes England look like a strong squad.
