West Indies vs Uganda 18th Match ICC T20 World Cup 2024

Two old rivals meet again on Saturday afternoon in Bridgetown, Barbados, as Australia takes on England in Match 17 of Group B. Australia overcame a few tough moments to secure a 39-run victory against Oman on Wednesday, while England’s match with Scotland ended without a result on Tuesday.

Strong performances from David Warner and Marcus Stoinis were key in Australia’s win over Oman, and there’s plenty more potential within this Australian side, especially in their batting lineup. The Aussies will be highly motivated to defeat the reigning champions in this encounter, bolstered by their strong squad.

England, on the other hand, cannot afford another winless game after their opening match against Scotland was abandoned due to weather. Falling short again could embolden other nations to vie for second place. However, England’s players often deliver their best performances in T20I clashes against Australia.

The pace bowlers found considerable success on this pitch on Thursday evening, but top spinners in this game are also likely to extract turn from the surface. The team batting first will aim to post a total of at least 185-195 to remain competitive.
