No matter when these two come together, the occasion drips with history, emotion and feeling – a rivalry that stretches back 100s of years.
It might not be Grace or Bradman these days but the vintages of 2017 will certainly provide plenty of fireworks. It will be a real build up to the Ashes series later this year when Eoin Morgan’s side lock horns with Steve Smith.
One thing is for sure, it won’t be for the faint-hearted. The in your face brilliance of Ben Stokes, the up and at them approach of the mighty David Warner – there are match winners and mind battles all over the place. Each ball will be a game in itself, each boundary greeted with huge cheers.
If you love one day cricket in all its glory then this is not to be missed. It will have something for everyone. As sporting occasions go it will be one of the biggest of the year – just make sure you are there to see it. It will be full on, that is guaranteed.
