Winning seven games out of eight, Australia is placed on number one of the CWC 2019 points table. Faf Du Plessis’ men have not had a very good time at the CWC 2019 as they stand on number eight with five points. The team had lost their important games against India, England and Pakistan which was the cause of the ouster from the mega-event. However, for Australia, the team is marred with injuries as Shaun Marsh has been ruled out of the World Cup due to an injury due to a fractured arm. Marsh was hit by Pat Cummins his teammate during the nets session. Glenn Maxwell is also doubtful for the game after being hit by Mitchell Starc during the same nets session.
Maxwell was rushed to the hospital for scans and is being monitored. Thus, the batsman looks doubtful for the game. The weather is expected to be cooler throughout the day. Early morning would have showers but the rest of the day will be dry and the fans can enjoy the full match.
