India and England Cricket teams are set for the knock-out match in 2015 Carlton ODI mid Tri-series on 30 January at WACA in Perth. This is kind of semi-final before final on 1 February as winner of tomorrow’s game will entered in the triangular series final against Australia. The match is scheduled to begin at 3:20 GMT, 11:20 local time and 8:50 IST.
There is no calculation of net run rate, bonus point or so in tomorrow’s game. It is as simple as win the match and make it to the final. This situation comes as previous match between India and Australia was washed out due to rain and India earned two points in the points table to give them a chance to qualify in the final.
Indian Cricket team will be desperate to register their first win in Australia 2014-15 tour as team has been playing cricket in Australia since November and they are failed to win single match on the tour. If they win tomorrow it will their big win on the tour as India will qualify for the final of tri-series to be played on 1 February against Australia.
Indian team is facing injuries too along with their bad performance in the series. Rohit Sharma is injured and it is reported that he’ll not be able to play even 2015 world cup warm-up matches. So he won’t be a part of tomorrow’s match against England at WACA. The last match against Australia was abandoned due to rain and it is expected that same playing 11 will be playing on 30 Jan.
England team looks much settled in the series from the past one and so year. Top order is in good form and bowling is also making efforts. But the fact is England is lacking in the middle order batting as Bopara, Morgan, Taylor and Buttler are not performing well. They need to perform continuously. Though Morgan scored the century in first game against Australia but he needs to bat regularly to score maximum in last 10-15 overs.
In the bowling England has got key bowlers like Broad, Anderson and Ali who are bowling exceptionally well in the starting and even in middle order. But they are not focusing on Yorkers and bouncers as we saw in previous game against Australia where bowling wasn’t good to save 303 runs. So English side should work on their bowling in tomorrow’s match to get over indian team.
In previous meet England out dated India and will be hoping to do it again tomorrow.
