England skipper, Eoin Morgan, says he is very delighted, he thanks the fans for their support. Mentions they came in here with a lot of confidence, they wanted to get better after each game and today was an example. He is very happy for Woakes, he is a cool customer and he goes about his business nicely. States today was his day, he and archer were excellent with the new balls and the guys later on were brilliant. Mentions Roy and Bairstow are in the form of their life and are very dangerous once they get in. Says he was 6 when England played in their last final and says he watches a lot of the highlights. Ends by saying it is a big opportunity this Sunday, looking back to where they were in 2015 and seeing what they can achieve on Sunday is a huge improvement.
Australian skipper, Aaron Finch, says they were outplayed. Admits after they were 27 for 3 and it got difficult to get back into the game. States it was a combination of both, the wicket doing and a bit and England bowling well but you expect the new ball to do a bit in the first half and they did well to hit the stumps. Further adds they tried to do the same but could not do it. Mentions you always want to win but there have been some positives, a lot of character has been shown in the last 6 months, they had their backs to the walls but have improved very much. Tells they kept looking for wickets, they tried changing it up but could not pick any, Roy and Bairstow played really well. Also says you got to beat everyone in the World Cup, they did have a few injuries but that is not an excuse.
MAN OF THE MATCH, Chris Woakes, says it is an incredible performance by the team, it started off with the ball but the way the batters knocked the runs off was brilliant. Admits they were nervous in the morning which is quite natural but the way they won it speaks a lot about their side. Further adds he was nervous and hence, he got the length wrong on the first ball but then got his length right and it went well. Reckons it was not a bad wicket but they found the right lengths, also, Australia losing early wickets did not help their cause. States they try and not pay attention to what people are saying, they did bowl a little shorter in Lord's but they have come a long way from there, they entered the knockout stages with momentum on their side and it all went well. Ends by saying he was three when England last made it to the finals, he still can't believe they are into the finals but he hopes all goes well on Sunday.
However, the Australian bowlers can't be blamed a lot as it was their batters who let them down today. After winning the toss and electing to bat, their top order was blown away. Smith did show some fight, first with Carey and then with Starc but Woakes and Rashid's brilliant spells ensured they bowl Australia out for a low total which their batters chased down without breaking a sweat.
Not a lot you can write about a side's bowling attack when they have conceded 224 in less than 35 overs. Australia needed early wickets but they did not get any. They seemed helpless as their bowlers got no assistance from the wicket. Also, they had no answers to the assault by Roy and Bairstow. Starc and Cummins did take a wicket each but it was just a mere consolation.
The England innings was all about Jason Roy! Yes, there were scores from the other batters as well but it was Roy's innings which was the stand out. He was the mainstay in his 124-run stand with Bairstow which more or less sealed the deal for the England side. Roy though was unlucky to be dismissed 15 short of a ton but Morgan and Root then ensured there were no further wickets to fall and the two took England over the line.
England have literally barged into the finals! We are now sure of having a new World Cup winner. The English side has done it with so much ease. They have cruised through. They have made the mighty Aussies look so tiny.

The ODI skipper and Test skipper have a hug and smile in the middle. The English fans are delighted. The defending champions are out and we will have a new champion. ENGLAND WIN BY 8 WICKETS.

Pat Cummins To Jason Roy OUT!
OUT! Caught! Roy is unhappy and honestly Dharmasena took a long time to raise his finger. Short ball on the leg side, Roy goes chasing after it with his pull. The ball goes to the left of Carey and he takes it. The Australian players put a very confident appeal. They scream and cry for it. The umpire seemed to be unmoved but at the dying seconds he raises his finger. Roy stands there shell shocked and confused. He has a word with Erasmus, the square leg umpire. He cannot believe he has been given out. Dharmasena comes and joins the chat but Roy has to walk back as England do not have a review. Replays roll in and Ultra Edge shows no spike on it. One can feel why Roy was unhappy. End of a stupendous knock from Roy. Deserved a 100 in all honesty but he won't get it. Walks back for 85 but to a huge applause from the crowd.

Mitchell Starc To Jonny Bairstow OUT!
OUT! LBW! It looked plumb and it was plumb. Good length ball pitching on middle and leg, it straightens up a bit. Bairstow looks to play it across the line but misses. The Australian players put in a loud, confident appeal. The umpire raises his finger. Jonny has a chat with Roy and then takes it upstairs. Ultra Edge shows no involvement of bat. Ball Tracker rolls in and shows the ball was going to hit the middle pole. Bairstow takes the sole review with him but he has done his job here. He will be disappointed but he has ensured that England are just a few meters away from a place in the World Cup final. 27th wicket for Starc in this World Cup, most by any bowler in this edition. Something to cheer for the Aussie fans.
Bairstow has been adjudged LBW here. He has taken the review. Looks dead plumb.

Steve Smith To Jason Roy
SIX! Hat-trick of sixes and Roy is ending Smith's bowling career here. This is the biggest and the baddest of the lot. He has torn the ball to pieces here. Floated on leg, Roy demolishes it two, maybe three rows over the long on fence for a daddy six.

Steve Smith is on now! Finch trying everything here.
DRINKS! England are doing it very easily at the moment. They need another 129 runs and have 10 wickets in hand. The two out there are in the mood to finish this off quickly. Australia on the other hand, look down and out. They need someone to put their hand up and not get one, two but three wickets very quickly. Will there be some fight from the Aussies or will England crush them?

We are back for the chase! The Australian players are in a huddle before they take their respective positions in the field. Jonny Bairstow and Jason Roy walk out to the middle to open the innings for England. Jason Behrendorff to operate with the first new ball. He was the chief tormentor when these two sides met the last time. Can he do it again?
