England beat Australia by 40 runs (D/L method) in the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 contest at Edgbaston on Saturday. Chasing the 278-run target, England were rocked early but recovered and later charged with Eoin Morgan-Ben Stokes stand. The England skipper fell short of ton but Stokes hit his first of the tournament. Rain arrived moments after Stokes’ celebration and England were well ahead on D/L at that stage.

Australia vs England, ICC Champions Trophy 2017 as it happened: Innings update: England 240/4 after 40.2 overs. England were cruising in the chase after rain arrived moments post Ben Stokes’ hundred celebration. The hosts were well ahead on D/L and no further play meant they maintain cleansheet, knock Australia out of the tournament

Innings wrap: Australia are 277/9 after 50 overs. Travis Head may have given Australia a fighting chance here. Their lower order crumbled and it didn’t look like Australia would go beyond the 250-mark. But some fearless hitting and dropped catches from England have ensured that Australia manage to post a competitive total for them.
