The second biggest match of the tournament! Last week, the current reigning World Cup Champions Australia faced their second loss of the season to South Africa. Australia was on lead with a 5 game winning streak until South Africa won by 10 runs, which took them down the table to the second position.
England, the team that has never won the Cricket World Cup trophy so far is on a transitional phase as they have been facing unexpected losses this season. Sri Lanka that had just 4% of winning chances in the second half of the match went on to stun England with a win.
This Thursday, Australia will play against England for the third time this season, with the previous two meetings resulted in favor of the defending champions. Though Australia looks in its best form this season and has won over England before, chances are high for England to win the semis with 60.2%.

Australia vs England Prediction
Who will qualify for the finals? Will Australia win again? Check out what Bettingpremier believes in with their prediction for the match.
Is it going to be an Australian Win?
Australia has always been a tough competitor with most of the strong bowlers and batsmen in the team. The only team to which Australia lost in this campaign was India until their final match of the group stage with SA. They would have faced New Zealand in the semis if they hadn’t lost to South Africa on ODI 45.
SA won by 10 runs, having taken all the wickets in the 49.5th over. Australia was on a 2 game winning streak which came to an end with India’s win over Australia. Somehow, the team managed to kick-start their winning streak by claiming 5 consecutive wins in the season which includes their win against England.
A place in the top of the table and a favorable semi-final draw was well in their hold which they let it slip with SA wins over them. Australia has not lost against England this campaign and if England surprises with a win then that would be a great comeback for the team.
Can England beat Australia this time?
England would have played India if India hadn’t won their previous and final match against Sri Lanka. India won it by 7 wickets and reached atop the table. This resulted in the first semis between India and New Zealand. England claimed their first win against SA by 104 runs but faced an immediate loss to Pakistan.
They caught hold of the winning streak by turning 3 consecutive matches in their favor but eventually lost to Sri Lanka which was the biggest loss of the season for the team. England would have been happy if the previous fixture with India had persisted as India faced their only loss of the season to England.
Though England has not claimed a win over Australia so far, this might be a chance for them to take revenge and prove their competency. England has not yet claimed even a single World Cup trophy but this might be a good chance for them as they have all the strong players present for the semi.
Check out England’s biggest loss of the 2019 campaign to Sri Lanka.
The Blues or the Yellows? – Our prediction
The yellows have won seven of the nine-game played by this season and were holding on to the top spot until their loss to SA in the final match of the group stage. They are now in the hunt of the World Cup finals trophy and will leave no stone unturned to defend their title.
If England wins the toss and chooses to bowl first, then the chances for them to reach the finals is high since Australian has two strong batsmen Warner and Finch. An early wicket of these two players will help England face a low target and with Root and Bairstow in the team, it might be an easy win.
Australia is more dependent on the bowler Starc, who is, of course, the best bowler of the season, ranking 1st in the list of most runs in this campaign – 26 wickets in 9 matches but to win Cummins has to contribute, who has so far taken 13 wickets in 9 matches and stands 11th.
