England is put into a spot of bother after their narrow loss against Sri Lanka as they now stand at No.4 with four wins from six matches. The hosts are left to face Australia, New Zealand and India out of which they have to win at least one to finish among the top four. They will now take on Australia at Lord’s on Tuesday in what is expected to be a cracker of a contest. The Aussies won five of the six matches they played till date and are only one win away from becoming the first side to seal the semi-final berth.

37.38 – Mitchell Starc’s bowling average of 37.38 in ODIs against England is his lowest against any team in this format. Starc has 21 wickets from 14 ODIs against the English team but concedes runs at an economy of 6.04.
