Here are the live updates from the match:
Hosts England are set to face off against Australia in the second semi-final of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 at Edgbaston, Birmingham on Tuesday. The winner will take on New Zealand in the final of the tournament after the Kiwis defeated India by 18 runs in the first semi-final at the Old Trafford, Manchester on Wednesday.
Australia emerged victorious by a margin of 64 runs against England in their group stage clash which will be further motivation for the latter to emerge victorious.
Joe Root has been the man to watch out for in the English side, emerging as the highest run-getter with 500 runs in nine innings. Jofra Archer and Mark Wood have further made their presence felt with the ball, accounting for wickets at regular intervals.
On the other hand, David Warner, Mitchell Starc and Jason Behendroff have been amongst the key performers for Australia. The two sides share a fierce rivalry and that will certainly add an edge to this vital clash.
