Overview

In the T20 World Cup 2024, England faces pressure after their match against Scotland was canceled due to rain. Scotland’s subsequent victory over Namibia has intensified the competition in Group B, putting England in a tough position. To stay in the race, the defending champions must defeat their long-time rivals, Australia, in the 17th match of the tournament.

Australia had a challenging game against Oman on Barbados’ slow pitch but managed to win, thanks to standout performances from David Warner and Marcus Stoinis. They may need to adjust their aggressive style based on the pitch conditions.
