England vs Australia: An Overview

They may be the most successful team in ODI World Cup history, but Australia is yet to notch a T20I World Cup win. England on the other hand is looking for their 2nd T20 World Cup title and were finalists in the last edition back in 2016.

England vs Australia betting couldn’t be closer as these teams have been neck and neck for wins since they first played a T20I in 2005. These two teams meet in the Group of Death and a strengthened Australia will bring their all to upstart one of the major favourites in the ICC T20 World Cup 2021.

England vs Australia betting will begin soon as these two nations meet on the 30th of October at the Dubai International Stadium with the match set to kick-off at 19:30 IST.

England vs Australia Tips & Prediction

This has got to be one of the hardest matches of the ICC T20 World Cup to call. On one hand, England has shown tremendous form over the year so far and appears hungry to take a 2nd title. However, some key players lack form, and the team has suffered some injuries. Australia has, to be quite honest, failed on the biggest stages in the T20 format and their recent form would support that. However, significantly dominant players were missing during parts of that period and the side is a return to a mostly full-strength team.

Despite form and England vs Australia betting odds in the British team’s favour, we think Australia will triumph on the back of the explosive batting of Aaron Finch and be supported by supreme players like Steve Smith.

Team News

Before you head to the best cricket betting apps to check out England vs Australia betting odds, consider who will be playing at this year's ICC T20 World Cup. Both sides have undergone several changes since the previous World Cup in 2016 and both sides feature World Cup debutants.

England

Keen eyes will probably have already spotted the absence of major stars Ben Stokes, Sam Curran, and Jofra Archer. Both Archer and Curran are unfortunately nursing injuries, while Ben Stokes – who some may remember conceded an embarrassing four sixes off four balls in the 2016 ICC T20 World Cup final – is currently taking an extended break from the game due to mental health complaints.

England Squad for ICC T20 World Cup:

Eoin Morgan (c), Moeen Ali, Jonny Bairstow, Sam Billings, Jos Buttler, Tom Curran, Chris Jordan, Liam Livingstone, Dawid Malan, Tymal Mills, Adil Rashid, Jason Roy, David Willey, Chris Woakes and Mark Wood.

Australia

Marcus Stoinis will return to Australia’s bowling lineup following a hamstring injury that had the powerful all-rounder side-lined during the IPL 2021 second leg. This is a return to a full-strength Australian side that has missed many national stars in the last 15 – 20 T20I matches.

Most notably, Australia will see the return of skipper Aaron Finch and Steve Smith following a knee injury and elbow injury respectively. Other stars such as Warner, Stoinis, and Cummins return after taking breaks during the Caribbean and Bangladesh series earlier in the year.

Australia Squad for ICC T20 World Cup:

Aaron Finch (c), Pat Cummins (vc), Ashton Agar, Dan Christian, Nathan Ellis, Josh Hazlewood, Josh Inglis, Mitchell Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, Kane Richardson, Daniel Sams, Steven Smith, Mitchell Starc, Marcus Stoinis, Mitchell Swepson, Matthew Wade, David Warner and Adam Zampa.

Key Players

Another key factor to consider when placing a wager during the England vs Australia betting period is key players. These are the men who can make or break a game with a single amazing performance.

England

  • Eoin Morgan – averaging more than 33 in the U.A.E and having scored more than 250 runs against Australia in 12 innings, Morgan is no stranger to putting Aussie pacemen in their place. He has the 2nd highest number of sixes in T20I matches between the two teams and some pundits believe he is just about to pull himself out of a run of terrible form. A player in that position can be deadly.
  • Adil Rashid – currently ranked as the 4th best T20 bowler according to ICC Rankings, the leg spinner from Yorkshire has taken 10 Australian poles from 7 matches in T20I. He has a strike rate of 15.40 so far in 2021 and has proven to be effective in the U.A.E, taking 3 wickets from 2 innings.
  • Dawid Malan – we couldn’t go an article about England vs Australia betting predictions without mentioning the ICC top-ranking T20I batsman. Malan has had a strong year thus far, with 246 runs from 11 games. Malan also has an average of 37.80 against Australia with 189 runs from a minimal 5 matches.

Australia

  • Aaron Finch – the dominant opener averages 61.11 against England in Twenty20 matches and holds several records against the nation. Finch is also a better batsman playing away with a tremendous T20I away average of 43.18. It’s quite clear that Finch has a knack for battering the Englishmen in the short game and we’d expect him to do the same on the 30th.
  • Steve Smith – his test match batting prowess has overshadowed the fact that Steve Smith has proven himself as a tremendous, short-form closer with the ability to save an innings in the middle order. The one-time T20I skipper has a batting average of 30 against England including a high score of 90. The man knows how to play under pressure and could be crucial to a late-innings fight back if needed.

Form

Australia has had an awful Twenty20 run this year. In the 15 T20 matches Australia has played in 2021, they have lost all but 4 of them. They have only won 1 match in the last 5 T20 games. Australia could only manage 4 T20 wins in 2020 either. Frightfully, Australia was handed a 4 – 1 defeat at the hands of Bangladesh in their last T20 series and Bangladesh failed to rank high enough to gain automatic entry into the ICC T20 World Cup Super-12 fixtures.

England, on the other hand, has fared significantly better in 2021 – notching 7 wins from 11 games including a hard-fought series against ICC T20 World Cup favourites India in March. In their last 6 T20 outings, England has won 5 of 6 matches that included a clean sweep of Sri Lanka at home. England’s stellar performances have come despite a changing line-up due to players sustaining injuries and taking personal time. On form alone, an England vs Australia betting punter would surely be looking closely at England.

Key Stats for England vs Australia

No England vs Australia betting tips and match predictions analysis can be complete without a deep dive into some key statistics. It’s in the statistics that we see strengths, weaknesses, and patterns that may be the crucial factor in making the perfect ICC T20 World Cup bet.

  • Australia Run Dominance – Australia has 3 of the top 4 highest run scorers between these two nations in Twenty20 cricket. Aaron Finch truly dominates with the runs too. At 550 from 12 innings, Finch is the highest T20I run-scorer between England and Australia. England’s Jos Buttler is in 2nd place, trailing significantly with 321 runs from just one fewer innings than Finch.
  • No Centuries – there have only been two centuries scored between England and Australia, but England has scored none of them. Australia’s Arron Finch and Glenn Maxwell have scored a century each, and Finch’s 156 was the highest all-time T20I score at the time. The closest an English batsman has been to a T20I century against Australia is a 94 from Alex Hales in 2013.
  • Big Sixes – two names will have great England vs Australia betting odds for most sixes in this upcoming match. Aaron Finch and England’s Eoin Morgan hold the top two spots for most sixes. However, unsurprisingly, Finch is way out ahead once again with 34 sixes from 12 innings compared to Morgan’s 15 sixes from 13 innings.

History of England vs Australia

The history and rivalry between these two nations are obvious to any cricket fan. They are the original teams to play international cricket and many Ashes series have become Test matches of legend. Australia and England played in the 2nd ever T20I in 2005 – Australia also played in the first T20I – and England won by a crushing 100 runs. In that match, Australia was bowled out for an embarrassing 79 chasing 179 and since then Australia has failed to assert the same dominance to the 20 over format as it has over all other forms of cricket.

England vs Australia betting has been tricky since 2005 as these two teams have been closely matched, with Australia managing to take home more wins than England. In the last 5 games against Australia, England has closed the gap by claiming 3 wins.
