It will be a test of nerves for the pre-tournament favourites England, as they gear up to take on arch-rivals Australia in the 2nd semi-final of the 2019 World Cup at Edgbaston on Thursday. Though the 3 lions are playing their 1st semi-final at the mega event in 27 years, but with a destructive batting line-up and home advantage, they will fancy their chances. But it's easier said than done. Australia not only comfortably beat the hosts in the group stage but also thrashed them in the warm-ups. Moreover, the Aussies haven't lost any of their 7 previous World Cup semis, and England would have to bring out their A-game to come up trumps over the 5 time World Champions.
