Key battles: Australia v England
Michael Vaughan v Glenn McGrath

  • Vaughan has played four previous one-day internationals against Australia, averaging 25.50, slightly above his career average of 24.43.

  • Despite taking 267 career wickets, McGrath has never dismissed Michael Vaughan in a one-day international.

  • In four innings in the World Cup, Vaughan has scored two half-centuries, 51 against the Netherlands and 52 against Pakistan.

  • McGrath boasts the best bowling figures ever at any World Cup after taking an incredible 7-15 against Namibia in Potchefstroom.

  • In his one and only innings in Port Elizabeth, Vaughan was dismissed for 14 by Namibia's Rudi van Vuuren.

  • Surprisingly, McGrath has never taken a wicket at St George's Park in three previous one-day internationals.

    Andrew Flintoff v Ricky Ponting

  • Ponting has an excellent record against England. In 15 matches, he has scored 525, averaging a very healthy 47.73.

  • Flintoff has only faced the Australians on one previous occasion, taking 1-56 in England's five-run defeat in Melbourne earlier this year.

  • In his only previous match at St George's Park in April 2002, Ponting hit 92 in Australia's three-wicket victory over South Africa.

  • Flintoff was England's best player in their 82-run defeat to India. He claimed figures of 2-15 before hitting 64 runs in 73 balls.

  • Ponting has scored the majority of his 5,697 one-day runs batting at number three. In 132 innings, he has scored 4,869 runs coming in after the first wicket.

  • More than half of Flintoff's 44 one-day wickets have been catches. In 51 matches, he has claimed 23 wickets as catches.
