The T20 World Cup 2024's 17th Match is set to take place between England and their arch-nemesis Australia at the Kensington Oval in Barbados on Saturday. The two are without a doubt regarded as one of the greatest rivalries in cricket history. 

Interestingly, England has a well established dominance over the Kangaroos, having won seven of the most recent T20I encounters. Thus, the upcoming game will be a cracking clash and there's absolutely no second thoughts about it.

Talking about their first match of the tournament against Oman, the game did not start on a sweet note as rain was a constant visitor. Even during the game, there were multiple delays caused by rain and in the end the officials decided to call the game off. 

But while the clash was washed out, the main focus point was that up until that point Scotland were at 90 after ten overs with all their wickets intact. Buttler and Co failed to scalp a single wicket and make a mark. 

Scottish side got off to a wonderful start as George Munsey and Michael Jones played some lovely strokes up front. Moreover, the opening pair put 50 between them. This highlighted big troubles for The Lions because if it wasn't for the rain interruption the opposition would've crossed the 150-run mark with ease.

Going forward, England would look to go ahead with the same team however there bowlers especially Adil Rashid and Chris Jordan would have to careful. While they didn't get to bat previously they do look like a solid batting line-up and can absolutely destruct the Aussie bowling arsenal.

England's Playing XI

Jos Buttler (C), Philip Salt, Will Jacks, Jonny Bairstow, Harry Brook, Moeen Ali (VC), Liam Livingstone, Chris Jordan, Jofra Archer, Adil Rashid, Mark Wood
