ICC Champions Trophy Day 10: Cricket Betting Preview
Arch-rivals England and Australia meet on the 10th day of ICC Champions Trophy 2017. The match is crucial for Australia. If they lose this match, they are likely to crash out of the tournament. England have already qualified. They do not have to worry about semi final qualification, as they have ensured their berth with two straight wins. Australia are desperate for a win. They tend to do well in such situations. But England have a well-balanced team for these conditions. There is no favorite for cricket betting for this match.
Preview – England
Despite having no qualification headaches, England would still want to win this match for two reasons. First, they will be keen to prevent Australia from qualifying to the semi finals, as Australia would be their biggest threat in the final, if they meet again. Second, they would want to win the bragging rights over their traditional rivals. Expect England to field their best eleven. Their batting looks classy and bowling is disciplined, if not sharp. If the match does take place, you put your cricket betting money on England. They are a strong and confident side.
Preview – Australia
Both the matches of Australia in this tournament have been washed away. In the first, they were staring defeat against New Zealand. In the second, they were poised to win against Bangladesh. So two points from three games is a fair indication of their performance.
Australia will have to be at their best against England. Steven Smith and David Warner will have to produce a strong batting effort. Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins need to shine with the ball too. Lack of a good spinner could affect Australia’s fortunes against England. The pitch in Birmingham did offer turn for the spinners.
Prediction for cricket betting: The threat of rain looms large over the match. If it goes ahead, England will be the winner.
