Aussies on a high following flawless performance

As for Australia, they lost just a couple of games in this tournament, against India and South Africa.

However, this would be their first game of the tournament in Birmingham.

As a result, the unfamiliarity of the conditions could trouble them.

But, going by their form, the venue is least of their concern.

Having said that, they would miss the services of Usman Khawaja.

Ground report

A high scoring track could await the teams at Edgbaston

The ground has seen four matches so far, with mixed results.

While the opening two matches saw average total being scored, the team batting second won it.
