Australia:Australia have been blown out with injury coming into this semis. Inform batsman Usman Khawaja has been ruled out of the tournament due to hamstring, while their Allrounder Marcus Stoinis is also suffering from side strain Although he hasn’t been ruled out but the injury looks bad at the moment. Matthew Wade and Mitchell Marsh have been called as a replacement for both of these players. Earlier in the tournament, Shaun Marsh was ruled out and Peter Handscomb was named as a replacement. Justin Langer has hinted in his interview that Matthew wade would likely replace Usman Khawaja. Wade has been in amazing form in Australia A tour in the UK, so he would probably bat at 4 which gives Steve Smith his original No. 3 position.

In the batting department, Jonny Bairstow has scored back to back hundred and both against quality sides.
