England seem primed to win their maiden title but it will take a special effort to upstage arch-rivals and record five-time champions Australia in the second World Cup semi-final on Thursday.
England have turned it around following their first-round exit in the 2015 edition and have become a formidable one-day side.
Considering the firepower the hosts possess, many current and former players have said it is England’s World Cup to lose, a trophy they have not been able to lift despite making the final in 1979, 1987 and 1992.
And between them and a fourth shot at the title, stand familiar foes Australia who have been so consistent in the mega event that they are yet to lose a semifinal, having won six and one being a dramatic tie against South Africa in the 1999 edition.
Selectors would be wrong to drop Glenn Maxwell who can win Australia a World Cup semi-final, according to Mark Taylor.
The former Australia captain on Wednesday threw his support behind the all-rounder, whose spot in the semi final against England hasn’t been assured by coach Justin Langer.
Great news, we can expect sunny intervals and a gentle breeze with temperatures reaching 23 degrees by around 3pm. There is a slight chance of rain early in the day, but it should have cleared by the time play is due to get underway.
As a former England captain, Ashes winning, Ashes losing, and losing player in the World Cup Final of 1979 and the semi-final in 1983, please forgive me if I nail my colours to the mast of the good ship England with fervent hopes that after all that we have seen in this World Cup, the home team will find a way to make it to the final and maybe to the ultimate glory of Eoin Morgan standing at Lord’s with the trophy in hand.

“We’ll pick our 11 and you’ll see it at the toss, I reckon,” Langer said when asked whether Matthew Wade could earn a shock call-up in Maxwell’s place.
