AUS vs ENG T20 World Cup match on June 8: Defending champions England in tight situation as they face Australia

Australia will face defending champions England in a crucial T20 World Cup 2024 game. England's streak of never winning against a European team in Men's T20Is continues after match washout with Scotland.

Australia will clash with defending champions England on June 9 in a much-awaited T20 World Cup 2024 game. Interestingly, neither England nor Australia are leading Group B.

Scotland, with 3 points, leads the group. They gained an additional 1 point when their match with England on June 4 was washed out. As rain ended the cricket match between two European teams, England's streak of never winning against a European team in Men's T20Is continued.

Moreover, the abandoned match makes it more difficult for England to qualify since they are left with only 1 point. Now, Jos Buttler’s team must win against Australia to keep things going. Even though their next matches are against relatively-weaker teams like Namibia and Oman, they need to have their momentum going.

Australia, on the other hand, are coming from a win against Oman. Mitchell Marsh’s team won the match by 39 runs after making 164/5 in 20 overs. In reply, Oman made 125/9 in 20 overs. Marcus Stoinis was the Player of the Match after claiming 3 wickets for 19 and scoring an unbeaten 67 off 36 balls.
