England will lock horns with arch-rivals Australia in a Super 12 game of the ongoing ICC T20 World Cup at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) on Friday, October 28. Both teams have had a similar fate in the tournament and will hope to turn things around from here.

After a defeat at the hands of New Zealand in their opening game, Australia bounced back in style with a win over Sri Lanka. The defending champions thrashed the Lankans by five wickets to get off the mark.

Chasing 158 runs, ace all-rounder Marcus Stoinis powered the Aussies home with an 18-ball 59* knock. Although Aaron Finch was not at his usual best, the skipper chipped in with a useful contribution, scoring an unbeaten 31.

England, on the other hand, got off to a winning start in the T20 World Cup before going down against Ireland in a rain-curtailed encounter. Jos Buttler and Co. fell five runs short via the DLS method and will be itching to return to winning ways.
