PREDICTION

It’s tough to see Australia coming away with a win. On paper, England are a more balanced and in-form side, but Paine and co. certainly have the bowling department to cause some problems to the host.

It would be an interesting game with a lot depending on the condition, pitch and toss.

What is your prediction?
