Both England and Australia have remained unbeaten in T20 WC 2021 so far in the two matches that they have played. The winner of this game is likely to seal a birth for themselves in the semi-final spot. The last time these two teams met each other in the T20 WC game was way back in the 2010 final where England ended up defeating Australia to win their maiden title in this format. England will start as favourites considering their recent form and the way they have thrashed their opponents in this T20 WC but Australia will be happy by seeing David Warner back in form and he could end up being the key player in this game.
