We are just days from the start of the Cricket World Cup, and the first official warm-up matches are here, as England take on Australia at the Rose Bowl. Join The Roar for live scores and coverage from 7:30pm (AEST).

While the result of warm-up games matters little, the form of individual players jockeying for spots in the final XI certainly does, and neither of these teams are what would be considered settled.

For Australian fans, it will be the first chance to see David Warner and Steve Smith operating around the playing group since their return, and undoubtedly, both have plenty to prove.

While they have been involved in some unofficial games and the Indian Premier League, their form will come under the real microscope here as they attempt to re-integrate into the Australian set-up.

Smith was huge on Wednesday in an unofficial warm-up game as Australia beat the West Indies, while Warner was among the best in the IPL.

The real question hovering over the Australians which they will hope to answer in these warm-up games is which opening combination – out of captain Aaron Finch, Warner, and Usman Khawaja – they will go with long-term.

The rest of the side seems reasonably settled, and for the bowlers, with Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins leading the way, it’ll be a chance to build form and match fitness in English conditions on grounds where defending runs is difficult.

On the English side of the dice, they come into a home World Cup under immense pressure. They are one of the favourites for the tournament, and having never lifted the biggest prize in cricket, they will be up against it from the home fans and media.

Eoin Morgan’s side are known for their big hitting, and it’s there they need to make plenty during the tournament on grounds which favour them.


Outside of Morgan, they are likely to be able to blast away from the get-go, with Jason Roy and Jonny Bairstow at the top of the order, and Jos Buttler, Ben Stokes and Moeen Ali further down, all supported by Joe Root, who should provide the glue.

England have a fairly complete team, and even in a warm-up game where the result doesn’t matter, that should be on display.

Again, the result doesn’t matter all that much, but it’d still be a nice confidence-booster for the team who comes out on front. Hard to see England dropping this one though.
