OLD rivals England and Australia meet in a World Cup warm-up clash in Southampton.
Eoin Morgan’s side are the favourites to win their first ever tournament – but come up against the defending champions who always seem to perform when it matters most.
The Aussies will also be buoyed by the return of disgraced ball-tampering duo Steve Smith and David Warner.
When is England vs Australia?
THIS warm-up clash will be TODAY, Saturday, May 25.
It will be held at the Rose Bowl, home of Hampshire CCC.
The toss was at 10am and stand-in skipper Jos Buttler won it, opting to BOWL first.
The match gets underway 10.30am.
All warm-up fixtures will be 50 overs per side, but will not carry official ODI status – teams can therefore field all members of their 15-man squad during the match.
