Eoin Morgan has said Saturday's Men's T20 World Cup match against Australia will be a meeting of the teams who sit behind India as "joint second favourites" for the title.

England have thrashed West Indies and Bangladesh, while Australia edged past South Africa before beating Sri Lanka.

"It's probably going to be one of our most difficult games," England captain Morgan said.

"Australia are a very strong side - coming into the tournament, they would probably be considered joint second favourites, along with us.

"They're a side that we know pretty well - we've played against them a lot over a number of years."

Morgan told BBC Sport before the tournament that he regarded India as "rightly" favourites to win.

Virat Kohli's side were hammered by rivals Pakistan by 10 wickets in their opening Group 2 game on Sunday.
