285/7 (50.0/50)
Australia beat England by 64 runs
So that is from this game! We have our firsts Semi Finalists this year's World Cup, Australia. England on the other hand, have a tough road ahead. They probably need to win both their games against New Zealand and India to qualify. On the 26th though, it is one side which has a chance to seal its place in the Semis, New Zealand and the other who needs to win all their games starting from Wednesday to have a chance to make it to the play offs, Pakistan. They both lock horns in Edgbaston and the game begins at 1030 local (0930 GMT). Till then take care and goodbye!
Australia skipper, Aaron Finch says they are pleased and reckons they have played good cricket and are looking to build on it. Tells England are a stand out side and can take the game away. Says it was important to chip in with wickets as Stokes and Buttler can take the game away. On the inspired team changes, he says Behrendorff was bought as he can swing the ball both ways and says it is fantastic the way he bowled. On Warner's new approach, Finch tells that he is respecting the bowlers more and is looking to build a base rather than going after it. Tells they are confident and it gives them a good chance to play their best cricket.
England skipper, Eoin Morgan says they were outplayed and they did not bowl well upfront. Reckons they played well in the top and capitalized on it. Says though it got easier to bat later on they did not apply themselves in. Says the wicket was soft, he laughs and says wish they would have batted. Credits Finch for the innings they played and Reckons it is not too disappointing as they still have their faith in their own hands. Admits they need to turnaround everything and he is not looking to point out just one error.
MAN OF THE MATCH, Aaron Finch, says anytime you contribute when your team wins, is special. Says it was good to see through the initial tough period and get to a century. Tells us building that opening stand with Warner was crucial. On this being his 7th ODI ton against England, he says it gives him confidence and it is good to score against a tough opposition. Says it was seaming and zipping initially in the day and they were just looking to cash in on the lose deliveries.
Earlier in the day, Australia were inserted and their openers got them off to a brilliant start. Their skipper, scored his second ton of the World Cup. They could not finish strongly but the runs they had on the board proved to be enough in the end.
Their bowling was probably about the two left-arm seamers! One who is making a name for himself in ICC Tournaments and the other who has put in a performance he would never forget in only his second game in World Cups. Jason Behrendorff and Mitchell Starc. The two were given the new balls and they ran through the English top order. They were excellent at the death as well. The duo had 9 wickets amongst them with Jason Behrendorff taking 5 and Starc finishing with 4. A word of praise to the others as well as they hardly gave anything away and never let the pressure ease off. Stoinis had one wicket to his name and it was the big one of Buttler.
The much talked English batting line-up failed to chase 232 in their last game and now have failed to overhaul 286 in this one. They have lost this match quite convincingly and there is pin-drop silence in the stadium. They actually can't believe what has happened. Once again their openers failed to get them off to a good start as they lost Vince for a duck. The ever reliable Root did not make an impact and Morgan too was bounced out. Stokes and Bairstow did look to steady the ship but Jonny threw it away. Then Stokes and Buttler revived English hopes but Khawaja's catch put an end to that stand too. All the hopes were then pinned on Stokes but the task was too much. An outstanding delivery saw him being dismissed 11 short of a ton. The game was more-or-less in Australia's bag when they got rid of the all-rounder and they pressed home the advantage and won the game easily in the end.
AUSTRALIA ARE INTO THE SEMIS! They are the first team to book their place in the knockouts after beating tournament favorites, England. However, I am not sure who will be more happier at the moment? Australia, Pakistan or Bangladesh because this loss has completely opened the table.

Jason Behrendorff To Chris Woakes OUT!
OUT! Another excellent catch! Excellent team work I should say between Maxwell and Finch! Jason Behrendorff gets his fourth. The slower one on middle, Woakes shuffles across and looks to clear the mid-wicket fence. It is the longer part of the ground. Maxwell in the deep runs to his right, keeps one eye on the ropes and takes it. He then realizes that the momentum is taking him over the ropes so he lobs it to Finch who runs to his right from long on. Woakes, England's last hope is dismissed.
The umpires have a few words and are happy with the catch.

Moeen looks to put bat on ball but ends up playing inside the line. The ball kisses the outside edge and goes to the keeper. Into the bowling all-rounders now are Australia. Seems an impossible task for England now. 97 needed in 63.

OUT! BOWLED 'EM! Starc does what Starc does best! Knocks the stumps over. Sends Stokes back to the pavilion 11 short of a ton. Stokes may have also taken back the hopes of this England side of chasing this down. Something special was needed to get rid of Stokes and Starc bowls a corker of a yorker. It tails back in from outside off. It is at 145 KPH. Stokes fails to get his bat down in time and the off pole is hit. Starc is pumped up. A brilliant innings by Stokes comes to an end but England wanted him to last longer. 109 needed from 78.

Marcus Stoinis To Jos Buttler OUT!
OUT! What a catch that is! Stoinis gets the big fish! The England fans have their heads down. They can't believe what just happened! The stand which probably was getting Australia a little worried has been cut short. This is on the pads, Buttler whips it hard but flat towards deep square leg. Khawaja there runs to his right and hangs onto it. It was traveling, it could have easily bursts through his hands. The Australians are elated. England need another 162.

LEADING EDGE BUT FOUR! This is tossed up on middle, it holds onto the wicket. Stokes closes the face of the bat early, it goes off the leading edge above the bowler's hand and through mid on for a boundary. A fortunate boundary but England won't care how they come as long as they come.
