Toss is going to play a very crucial part here as the pitch at the Dubai International Stadium has played a tad indifferently at times. As both the captains Aron Finch and Eoin Morgan will head out for the toss they will want to win it and bowl first. Batting first has proved to be more difficult than chasing the target down. Moreover both the teams have got a great bowling attack which can win this big game for their sides.
Comparing head to head the biggies have faced each other in the T20 World Cup only two times. The first clash being in the year 2007 was won by Australia while the second one in the 2010 World Cup was won by the British team. Coming into this game both the teams have won their previous matches and that must have pumped them up. The winning percentage is 50-50 as there is not much that separates both sides.
