CT 17: Australia to Face England in Do or Die Match at Edgbaston    

Birmingham (June 10, 2017): Host England who have already qualified for the semi final will take on Australia in the last Group A match of ICC Champions Trophy at Edgbaston, Birmingham today. It will be do or die match for Australia to be alive in the Champions Trophy.

The match is scheduled to start at 09:30 GMT. The England team looks settled which is important as each player will know his role and expectation in the team.

On the other hand, the Australians would have trained and prepared well but will feel a little underdone with match intensity conditioning since both their games were washed out.

It is pertinent to mention here that England is already through to the semi-finals and so there is less pressure on it. Australia must win to progress and will be desperate to put in its best possible performance.
