Winners. Always winners. Australia make it their business to be ready for the world’s biggest one-day tournament and they know English conditions well enough to be a real handful.

The Aussies make it their habit of being competitive and as reigning champions will not want to give it up. With the likes of Aaron Finch at the top of the order – a white-ball destroyer – the brilliant Pat Cummins and under the new captaincy of Tim Paine, the Australians are bound to be a threat – they always are.
