ENG vs AUS Match Prediction & Betting Tips - Nov 04, 2023

England and Australia will contest the 36th match of the 2023 Cricket World Cup. The Aussies and English currently occupy third and 10th position in the tournament's 10-team standings.

England are out of contention for a semi-final berth, while Australia are still in the running for the next stage of the competition. Let's see what the betting odds and cricket markets have in store for this World Cup match in Ahmedabad, India.

England vs Australia head-to-head record

Australia have four victories to England's one in their last five ODI meetings. England have not beaten Australia in this format of the international game since 2020. Overall, the Australians have beaten the English 87 times in ODI cricket - and England have won on 63 occasions.

ENG vs AUS Team Previews


England are the reigning World Cup champions, but have already been ruled out of reaching the semi-finals in the wake of five defeats in six matches. They have lost four in a row. The only win they have to show for this tournament is over Bangladesh, who have also been removed from semi-final contention.

Captain Jos Buttler and company still have proverbial pride to play for in India. There's Champions Trophy qualification to fight for as well. The top seven teams at the end of the round-robin stage of this World Cup will qualify for the next Champions Trophy.

Opener Dawid Malan and former captain Joe Root have been England's standout performers with the bat this tournament. Malan has 236 runs in six innings to Root's 175 in six. But they have severely lacked support and, against Australia, it's definitely all-rounders Ben Stokes and Moeen Ali's cue to step up.

Seamer Reece Topley was a promising prospect with the ball until he left the tournament due to injury. Leg-spinner Adil Rashid has since emerged as England's top wicket-taker with eight in six matches. Fast bowler Mark Wood and seamer Chris Woakes have four each.

Australia's 2023 Cricket World Cup campaign started poorly with successive defeats against India and South Africa. They have since strung together four consecutive wins over Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Netherlands and New Zealand. A win over England would all but book a berth in the semi-finals for the Aussies.

Australia's XI will be weakened in the absence of all-rounders Glenn Maxwell and Mitchell Marsh for this match. Marsh has returned home for personal reasons, while Maxwell has been sidelined by concussion. Maxwell's exit is a big blow in particular, as he recently hit the fastest century - from 40 balls - in Cricket World Cup history.

Opener Travis Head's return from injury is a significant boost for the Aussies. He slotted straight back into the playing XI against New Zealand - and duly struck a century. Marsh's absence could put more onus on fellow all-rounders Cameron Green and Marcus Stoinis, especially with the ball.

Leg-spinner Adam Zampa has been prolific this tournament. He has taken 16 wickets in six matches. Zampa is the 2023 Cricket World Cup's joint-leading wicket-taker - and the only spinner among the top nine. He has double the number of wickets taken by seamers Pat Cummins and Josh Hazlewood, who have eight each.

ENG vs AUS Toss Prediction

Only nine out of the first 32 matches of this World Cup have been won by the team that also won the toss. That statistic suggests the captain to lose the toss has a 71 percent chance of winning the match.

Six of the last nine ODIs in Ahmedabad have been won by the team batting second. That includes the two 2023 World Cup matches in Ahmedabad so far. Saturday's toss-winning captain will likely choose to field first.

Pitch and Conditions

This will be the third of five 2023 Cricket World Cup matches played at the Narendra Modi Stadium. The ground hosted the tournament opener and will be used for the final as well.

The venue hasn't yielded a 300-plus total here in its last five ODIs. The last five first-innings scores here in ODI cricket have been 191, 282, 265, 237 and 176. Teams have been bowled out in five of the last 10 innings here.

This is not a high-scoring venue - certainly not as high as most of the other grounds being used for this tournament. Two spinners, two seamers and one batter have been Player of the Match in the last five ODIs here.

No rain is predicted in Ahmedabad during the days leading into the match. No wet weather is forecast for matchday. We should get a full fixture in here. The match will start at 1:30pm, when the dew factor won't have as much of a say as it would have with an earlier start.

ENG vs AUS Betting Tips

Even though Australia will be weakened without Maxwell and Marsh, they should win this match against an England unit low on confidence and without victory in their last four attempts.

Australia have won three ODIs in Ahmedabad. England have only done this once - and lost here as recently as October 2023.

The Aussies are priced as 1.62 favourites to win this match. England are at longer odds of 2.32 to win.

Bonus Cricket Bets

  1. 1xBet


    Adam Zampa to be top Australia bowler



Zampa is the joint-leading wicket-taker at this tournament. He took three wickets against New Zealand recently - and a four-for in each of his three preceding ODIs. Conditions in Ahmedabad could play right into his hands.

  1. Dafabet


    Dawid Malan to be top England batter



Malan is England's leading run-scorer at this World Cup. He has scored their only century at this tournament. Malan will probably open the batting again - and have the opportunity to score quickly inside the opening powerplay.

  1. Parimatch


    Any player to score a century in the first innings



There have been 25 centuries in this year's Cricket World Cup so far. Two of those have been scored in Ahmedabad. Australia have scored five centuries this tournament - and England one.
