14th February is now not just a date to celebrate Valentines days but also a big day for England. The match will be held on Saturday, February 14, 2015 , time 14.30 local (03.30 GMT). This time Australia takes England sledging to a whole new levels.
To witness these old enemies start their World Cup campaigns, a full house crowd of 90,000 is expected at MCG. With Australia having won each of the three of the ODIs between the sides in the first tri-arrangement, there is a sense that less of two groups battling it out as much as one group being tossed to the yellow lions. Perhaps that desire and ecpectations may weigh overwhelming on their shoulders, however they are appraised No. 1 in the ICC ODI table which is as it should be. Their batsmen can shred any assault and they have two men in the main 10 of the knocking down some pins rankings. Playing in conditions in which they are familiar and suit them and applauded by a home crowd, they stay solid top choices for this match and the tournament. England, in the mean time, are unburdened by any big expectation. Having recently changed their captain, England has not won an ODI arrangement for practically a year and neglected to achieve the semi-finals of the World Cup subsequent to 1992, so little is anticipated from them. Their late record against Australia in Australia – they have lost 13 of the keep going 15 ODIs – gives additional proof towards the same conclusion.
The conclusion is left on tomorrow’s match as to see if its a Valentine’s day celebration or Valentine’s day massacre of England.
