England vs Australia, ICC World Cup: England Rampant ends Australia's title defense and roars in final | Cricket News

BIRMINGHAM: England has eliminated Australia's title defense and has launched in the Cricket World Cup final with a complete eight-time win at the box office against the five-time champion of the second semifinal on Thursday.

DASHBOARD: England vs Australia

Eoin Morgan's men sketched out Australia for 223 before beating their target at 32.1 during an unbalanced battle between hosts and holders at Edgbaston.

Jason Roy (85) and Jonny Bairstow (34) have made the pursuit a real walk with their partnership for the fourth century in a row.

Joe Root (49 absentees) and Morgan (45 absentees) completed the formalities for England who avenged his defeat in group stage against Australia in a hall where they had won 10 previous matches in all. formats.

England, who last qualified in the final against Pakistan in 1992, will face New Zealand 2015 on the final list at Lord & # 39; s, where a new champion will be crowned.

"After defeating India on this ground, we would have come here with the same confidence and momentum from the group stages," Morgan said.

"We are talking about improving better and better, we set the tone for the first ball and won."

"Looking back where we were in 2015, it's a dramatic improvement.Everyone in the locker room can boast of merit.We want to make the most of the opportunity."

Previously, Aaron Finch's decision to hit seemed to be turning against Chris Woakes and Jofra Archer.

Archer hit with his first delivery to fire Finch and then left Alex Carey with a bloody chin that needed stitches.

By then, the setback had snowballed into a major crisis for Australia.

Woakes (3-20) eliminated David Warner, Australia's top scorer, for nine goals, and beat Peter Handscomb, who made his World Cup debut as a substitute for injured Usman Khawaja.

Archer pierced hostility at the other end, hitting Carey on the grill of his helmet and dislodging it from his head.


Carey braved the blow to join Steve Smith in a relentless attempt to stop Freefall and Australia hit the 100-point mark in 25th place before his average order yielded.

Adil Rashid claimed a 3-54 record, including the wickets of Carey (46) and Marcus Stoinis, and Archer dismissed Glenn Maxwell, who scored for his 22nd before being cheated by a slower ball .

Smith was short of 85 points in the 48th day and Australia could not hold its full quota of 50 people.

Smith and Carey scored more than half of their team total and were one of four Australian drummers to achieve double-digit scores.

Their meager chances of victory depended on their ability to subject England to a similar collapse, but Roy and Bairstow had to face the same fearlessness that characterizes this English team.

Roy crushed his fourth consecutive fifty in the tournament, hitting Smith three times in a row.

Mitchell Starc, who turned 29 with Bat, fired Bairstow and Pat Cummins denied Roy his century, but the match had already slipped through Australia's fingers.

"Totally outclassed today, the way they made us 27 for three after 10 postponements set the tone," said Finch after Australia's first loss in the World Cup semi-finals .

"One of these days, we did not perform as we could have done and you were hurt by a good team … We came here with some injuries, but that's not an excuse We came here to win but it was not to be. "
