With three defeats in seven matches, England now have to win the remaining matches to qualify for the semis, provided other results also favour them.

    21:45 (IST)25 Jun 2019

    21:17 (IST)25 Jun 2019

    21:14 (IST)25 Jun 2019

    What a tournament he is having-

    21:04 (IST)25 Jun 2019
    Leading edge

    BUT FOUR! This was 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. ENG- 112/4 in 25.4 ovs

    20:43 (IST)25 Jun 2019

    20:17 (IST)25 Jun 2019
    England in deep trouble!

    Behrendorff to Bairstow, OUT, Bairstow holes out to deep midwicket! That's a flaccid finish to a fighting knock, climbing into the pull but beaten once again by the extra bounce from the lanky Behrendorff! Cummins is lurking back on the rope and England are ever deeper in the soup! Bairstow goes for 27 runs off  39 balls. England 53/4 in 13.5 overs.

    20:01 (IST)25 Jun 2019

    19:23 (IST)25 Jun 2019
    Joe Root departs!

    Mitchell Starc to Joe Root, OUT, there's the inswinger again! Pace, length, inswing, it's a stunning triple whammy, and though Root thinks of the review, he knows it is utterly plumb! England 15/2 in 3.3 overs.

    19:07 (IST)25 Jun 2019
    Behrendorff strikes for Australia on 2nd ball!

    Behrendorff to Vince, OUT, massive inswinger and Vince has been castled! Shades of Starc to Brendon McCullum in the World Cup final 2015, and huge jubilation! England 0/1 in 0.2 overs. 

    18:54 (IST)25 Jun 2019
    Jofra tops the table with 16 wickets!

    Jofra Archer is now the standalone leading wicket taker at World Cup 2019 leaving Mitchell Starc and Mohammad Amir behind.

    18:46 (IST)25 Jun 2019
    Aaron Finch says:

    "It would have been nice to go on with it. It's never ideal to get a hundred and then get out. There's still enough in the wicket though. That's a pretty good score. It wasn't the easiest wicket to start on, the ball was seaming. We were conscious to try and get through that with as little damage as possible and we were able to do that. We got ourselves into a decent position. We could have got a few more runs."

    18:45 (IST)25 Jun 2019
    Australia are 50 runs short?

    Alex Carey's late flourish gives Australia something to bowl at. They made a mess of an outstanding start. Aaron Finch and David Warner were superb up front on a difficult pitch but neither could kick on to a big score. Finch got out for exactly 100. Warner made 53 and then the side fell away from there.

    18:38 (IST)25 Jun 2019
    England restrict Australia for 285/7

    With a brilliant bowling effort by England bowlers, they managed to restrict Aussies for just 285 despite a ton from Aaron Finch and half-century from Warner. England need 286 to win this match at Lord's.

    17:40 (IST)25 Jun 2019
    Mark Wood sends Maxwell back

    Ben Stokes strikes for England

    Usman Khwaja bowled out by Ben Stokes for 23 off 29 balls. 90mph from Stokes, right into the blockhole, and Khawaja was simply beaten for pace as this shaped back in as he wafted rather loosely across the line. A vital incision to end a burgeoning stand. Australia 173/2 in 32.2 overs

    17:01 (IST)25 Jun 2019
    Australia 162/1 in 30 overs

    With skipper Aaron Finch 85 (95) and Usman Khwaja 19 (24) on the crease, Australia are 162/1 in 30 overs. Now with 9 wickets in hand, Aussies will look to accelerate the run rate in coming 20 overs. 

    16:48 (IST)25 Jun 2019

    Moeen Ali tosses this up, tempts Finch to take on him. Aaron obliges, he lofts it over the long on fence for a biggie. Spoils the over completely.
