Englandwill take on their arch rivals Australia in the Semi Finals of the ICC Champions Trophy in South Africa tomorrow.
The two sides met recently in a ODI series in England and Australia came out comfortably on top on that occasion winning the Natwest Series 6-1.
However since then England have been playing some excellent One Day Cricket in South Africa, Andrew Strauss's men have beaten Sri Lanka in the opening game and they followed up that victory with a superb win against the hosts and pre tournament favorites South Africa.
Australia on the other hand beat the West Indies in the opening game, they then had a rained out match with India but they held their nerve to defeat Pakistan in a last ball thriller.
Australia are the defending Champions Ricky Ponting's men won the title in India back in 2006.
England reached the finals back in 2004, and in the Semis the knocked out Australia.
If Australia can find their best form then it would take a brave person to Betagainst them beating England tomorrow.
