That's it!!! Game over for England. Australia has won the match magnificently by 64 runs. Aussie pacers did an amazing job where the duo of Starc and Behrendorff took 9 wickets. Jason Behrendorff made a place in the team by replacing Nathan Coulter-Nile which really proved worthy for Aussies. Australia with this win becomes the first team to enter the semi-final. Adil Rashid was the last man to get dismissed by Starc. Rashid scored 25 runs from 20 balls. Except for Ben Stokes who made 89 runs, none other English batsmen showed their class. 

For Australia, skipper Aaron Finch scored 100 and the second century of ICC CWC 2019 as Australia finished yet another clinical victory and qualified for the semi-finals with 12 points.

OUT!! Five Wickets for Jason Behrendorff. Archer becomes his fifth victim.  Archer gave catching practice at long-off. Jofra Archer c Warner b Behrendorff 1 from 4 balls

OUT!! Behrendorff strikes for the fourth time. Woakes went on for a big hit only to find Maxwell at the boundary line who did a brilliant work of passing the ball to Finch at the right time, before crossing the boundary rope. Chris Woakes c Aaron Finch b Behrendorff 26(34)

Currently, Adil Rashid and Chris Woakes are batting on the crease. 

OUT!! Jason Behrendorff dismisses Moeen Ali. Now Australia can smell the victory with tailenders coming into bat. A win here for Aussie will book their spot in the semi-final. Ali gave an outside edge to Alex Carey.  Moeen Ali c Alex Carey b Behrendorff 6(9)

OUT!!! Mitchel Starc gets his third wicket of the match as he bowled Ben Stokes with a good yorker of 145 km/h. Ben Stokes b Mitchell Starc 89 from 115 balls

 

Drinks Break!!! England will have to strategise their plan in this break. Meanwhile, they are lagging behind the required run rate. Their last hope lies in Stokes and Chris Woakes who have abilities to play bigger shots and take the game away from the opposition. 

OUT!!! Marcus Stoinis dismissed Jos Butler. It was a good length ball around off stump, Butler plays the shot only to find Usman Khawaja at deep backward square. Jos Buttler c Usman Khawaja b Stoinis 25 from 27 balls

Ben Stokes reaches his half-century in 76 balls. England has some hope alive till the time he is on the crease with Jos Butler. The two Englishmen are currently playing quite sensibly.

Valuable Half-Century For Stokes

Jos Butler who played like a lone warrior in the previous match against Sri Lanka is trying to build up a partnership with Jos Butler. Stokes is trying to keep the scoreboard ticking and match the required run rate.
