Aaron Finch and Eoin Morgan

After slumping to a shocking defeat at the hands of Sri Lanka, hosts England will look to bounce back and return to the winning ways when they take on defending champions Australia in a crucial clash of the 2019 ICC World Cup at the Lord's in London on Tuesday. The Eoin Morgan-led side, who entered into the marquee event as hot favourites, slipped to the fourth spot in the points table after suffering an unexpected 20-run defeat against Sri Lanka. Australia, on the other hand, are standing at the second spot with five wins from six matches.
