The T20 World Cup the competition will involve two explosive strike units as England and Australia clash on Saturday (October 30th) at Dubai International Cricket Stadium.
Jason Roy, Jos Buttler, David Warner and Aaron Finch are four players who are able to hit through a full streak of 20 overs for their sides. So far, however, they have failed to shoot collectively in the tournament.
The middle row of both sides alternated between inconsistent and impressive in patches, making their conflict a platform to check all the boxes. Ahead of the key match, we are trying to predict three players who could end up as the top scorers.
# 3 David Warner
After great form in his last T20 World Cup match against Sri Lanka with a posh 42-ball-65, David Warner he can now be expected to return to his destructive self. However, it will be a challenge against a strong attack by England in bowling.
Warner’s kick against SL followed a series of low scores and was stuffed with 10 fours. He will want to go out for an encore against Chris Woakes, Moeen Ali and Tymal Mills.
# 2 Jos Buttler
The English goalkeeper striker has results of 24 * and 18 so far at the T20 World Cup. However, he has yet to get a show with the signature of Buttler’s innings – brutal, but brilliant.
Butler is no stranger to confronting the trio of Josh Hazlewood, Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins. Will this be a game in which Buttler will be great? Only time will tell.
# 1 Glenn Maxwell

With 18 and 5 results so far at the T20 World Cup, Glenn Maxwell has yet to play a solid match in the tournament. Although he transferred the rich IPL form to the release, Maxwell has shrunk and will appear to dominate Adil Rashid and Moeen Ali. The English spin twins, however, were pretty consistent with six wickets in between.
Q. Will Steve Smith score 50 against England?
