AUS vs ENG: Match Preview, Pitch Report and Dream11 Prediction for Match 17 of T20 World Cup 2024

England is the defending T20 World Cup champion, whereas Australia won the T20 World Cup in 2021. So, it’s the clash of the two latest World champions (Ashes in a T20 version) in Match 17 being played at Bridgetown, Barbados.

Team Previews


Australia won their 1st match without much difficulty. At one point, they were 50/3 after the wicket of Maxwell, but half-centuries from Warner and Stoinis led them to make a score of 164/5. A combined bowling effort never let Oman come into the game, and Australia won the game by 39 runs. Stoinis was declared the Man of the Match for his all-round effort of 67*(36) and 19/3 in 3 overs.


The defending champions started their tournament sharing points with Scotland in a washed-out game. Scotland scored 90 runs in 10 overs, mainly due to 36 runs in the final 3 overs of Adil Rashid and Chris Jordan. Jos Buttler and company will look to gather 2 points by defeating their archrivals in their second game.

Probable Playing XI

Australia: Travis Head, David Warner, Mitchell Marsh (c), Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Tim David, Matthew Wade (wk), Mitchell Starc, Nathan Ellis, Adam Zampa, Josh Hazlewood

England: Phil Salt, Jos Buttler (c) (wk), Will Jacks, Jonny Bairstow, Harry Brook, Liam Livingstone, Moeen Ali, Chris Jordan, Jofra Archer, Adil Rashid, Mark Wood

Players to Watch Out For

David Warner

Other than Stoinis, Warner was the other batsman who made half-century for Australia and brought them into the game after losing 3 wickets for 50 runs. Warner can play as an anchor once again against England. When Australia won the WT20 in 2021, Warner was the player of the tournament for scoring 289 runs in 7 matches and a valuable 53 (38) in the finals.

Phil Salt

Men in form are always a threat to the opposition. KKR won IPL 2024, and Phil Salt was one of the main reasons for this. Although he didn’t play the payoffs due to national commitment, his performance in the league stage was phenomenal. Salt was the second-highest run-scorer for Kolkata in the tournament, scoring 435 runs in 12 innings at a Strike Rate of over 180.
