 England win toss, opt to bowl

DHAKA: England have won toss and invited Australia to bat first in the 32nd match of ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 at Lord’s London on Tuesday (June 25).

The match is scheduled to begin at 3:30pm (Bangladesh Time).

"It's not a no-brainer, it's a bit soft on top, but we haven't seen much sun down south so it might do a bit this morning. It builds confidence," Morgan says.

England need to win two of their last three matches to qualify for the semi-finals.

Aaron Finch said, "I'm not too disappointed batting. I wasn't too sure about the wicket, but I would have probably bowled first as well. We've played consistent cricket throughout without being outstanding. If you go too hard you leave yourself open at the back-end against some world-class death bowlers."

England XI

Jonny Bairstow, James Vince, Joe Root, Eoin Morgan (capt),  Ben Stokes,  Jos Buttler (wk), Moeen Ali,  Chris Woakes,  Adil Rashid,  Jofra Archer,  Mark Wood

Australia XI

Aaron Finch (capt), David Warner, Usman Khawaja, Steven Smith,  Glenn Maxwell,  Marcus Stoinis,  Alex Carey (wk), Jason Behrendorff,  Pat Cummins,  Mitchell Starc,  Nathan Lyon
