England have won the toss and elected to bowl first in their third and last group game of the ongoing ICC Champions Trophy 2017 against bitter rivals Australia. This match is taking place in Edgbaston, Birmingham with the kick-off time being 3.30pm BdST.
While an England-Australia clash is always a mouth-watering one with all the cricket fanatics keeping their close eye on it, surprisingly, this match is of completely different important in contrast for the English and the Australians.
While this is a do-or-die match for Australia to stay alive in the competition and qualify for the semifinals, for England this is just another game against their arch-rivals to come on top and salvage pride.
Though Bangladesh are not in this match, this match has equal importance for them as well. With 3 points in 3 matches, Bangladesh are major contenders from Group A to reach the last four. But their hope completely relies on the outcome of this match, where they have got no hands at all.
