World Cup 2019, England vs Australia Highlights:
Australia win by 64 runs
VICTORY! Australia beat England by 64 runs and become the first team to qualify for the semi-finals. Jason Behrendorff picks up five wickets while #Starc gets a four-fer. The so much talked about English batting line-up failed to chase 232 in their last game and now have failed to overhaul 286 in this one
WICKET! A great relay catch by Maxwell and Finch leads Woakes back to the pavilion ENG-202/8 in 39.3 ovs, need 84 runs in 51 balls
Edge & taken!
Moeen Ali is gone for 6. Behrendorff picks up his 3rd wicket of the innings. England are collapsing - ENG-189/7 in 39.3 ovs, need 97 runs in 63 balls
Sensational Starc strikes again! This time with an 145kph inswinging yorker that gets rid of Ben Stokes for 89! 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. ENG- 177/6 in 37 ovs
A welcome boundary for England!
FOUR! England would hope this gets Woakes going. Fuller and on the pads, Woakes works it through wide long on for a boundary. 150 up for England. ENG- 158/5 after 34.2
England lose half their side
It was a nothing delivery from Stoinis and Buttler connects it well to the deep backward square but Usman Khawaja runs across to his right and takes a wonderful catch. Australia get the breakthrough! ENG- 124/5 in 27.2 ovs
Another wonderful piece of Australian fielding and Jos Buttler has to go.— Cricket World Cup (@cricketworldcup) 25 June 2019
He helps a Stoinis delivery into the leg-side and Usman Khawaja runs round the boundary completing an excellent catch.#ENGvAUS | #CWC19 pic.twitter.com/QDqk61HKts
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
Stokes and Buttler do damage control
Chasing 286, England are 91/4 in 20 overs with Ben Stokes 35 (51) and Jos Buttler14 (12) building their innings. Both have had 38-run partnership as 34 runs have come in last five overs without losing any wicket.
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.
England 44/3 in 11 overs
Chasing a target of 286, England's Ben Stokes and Jonny Bairstow are taking their time at the middle after three of their wickets have already fallen. Bairstow is on 25 (33) and Stokes 4 (15 ). Aussies are 44/3 after 11 overs.
Eoin Morgan goes!
Eoin Morgan falls in trap of Mitchell Starc's short ball as he climbs into the pull but that's a top-edge! Cummins steadies himself inside the fine-leg rope, and this innings is in tatters now!
England 26/3 in 5.5 overs.
England in all sorts of trouble!— Cricket World Cup (@cricketworldcup) 25 June 2019
Morgan takes on a Starc short ball but is superbly caught by Cummins at fine leg.

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.
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.
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.

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."
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.
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.
Game on now as Aust have thrown away a huge advantage and allowed England to get back into the game with some poor decision making with their batting and look to be 50 runs short. Having said that, the new ball will do a lot ! I hope Cummins and Starc take the new ball— Shane Warne (@ShaneWarne) 25 June 2019
Steve Smith falls for 38
Aussies who were marching towards a 350 total, have succumbed to England's brilliant death overs bowling effort. Steve Smith also fell for 38 leaving Australia in tatters at 252/6 in 46 overs.
He was getting frustrated and England's pressure has paid off!— Cricket World Cup (@cricketworldcup) 25 June 2019
Steve Smith tries to clear long on but doesn't make a clean connection.
Jofra Archer takes the catch, Woakes the bowler.
In a strange mixup between Steve Smith and Marcus Stonis, England got a much needed wicket of Stonis. Adil Rashid to Smith, out Stoinis Run Out!! 1 run completed. Stoinis keeps running, and he joins Smith at the non-striker's end who wasn't interested in the second run. Easy run-out. Stoinis run out. Australia 228/5 in 42 overs.
An awful mix up!— Cricket World Cup (@cricketworldcup) 25 June 2019
Marcus Stoinis is run out as both batsmen end up at the same end.
Mark Wood sends Maxwell back
Mark Wood to Maxwell and caught by Jos Buttler!! Gone! That has been Maxi's story right through the tournament. Starts off in a blaze and then throws it away. Wood gets a wicket and he's delighted. England slowly clawing their way back into the game. Maxwell 12 off 8 balls. Australia 213/4 in 38.2 overs.
Maxwell sends it for maximum!
Jofra Archer to Glenn Maxwell and he launched over wide long on! Goodness what a shot! Full in the slot, he just teed off, smoking this 97m over wide long on and into the crowd! 12 came off the over. Australia 213/3.
Aaron Finch hits tons, departs!
Aussie skipper Aaron Finch smashed another ton in the World Cup, this time against England at Lords. Having finished 100 off 115 balls, Finch got out. Austrailia are 185/3 in 35.3 overs.
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
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.
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.
WICKET! Moeen Ali provides England the much-needed breakthrough as he claims the first wicket for the hosts. David Warner is caught by Root at backward point, departs for 53 off 61 balls
England are good at getting 350 ... !! Very very nervous ... #CWC19— Michael Vaughan (@MichaelVaughan) June 25, 2019
Half century for Warner
And the leading run-scorer of the World Cup brings up fifty of his own. Warner joins Finch as the opener completes his 20th half-century off 52 balls.
A fantastic start for Australia having been asked to bat first!— Cricket World Cup (@cricketworldcup) June 25, 2019

Cricket fraternity praise the Australian openers
AUS desperate for a wicket
Eight overs in, the England bowlers have created a few chances, but they haven't had a wicket yet. Australia are 35/0.
REVIEW! The umpire's call is withheld after an lbw appeal against Finch is turned down. The Australian captain was struck high on the pads, was only going to clip the top of leg-stump. England retain their review.
Warner, Finch give Australia a decent start with consistent boundaries. The defending champions are 23/0 after five overs
It's been a high-octane start at Lord's!— Cricket World Cup (@cricketworldcup) June 25, 2019
There have been edges but no wickets, and a few confident shots too. Australia are 23/0 after five overs.

Beauty by Woakes
Woakes gets on a good length, Warner caught on leg stump and goes fishing with his hands away from his body. Play and a miss.
We all know how big the slop is at the lord’s cricket ground and the pitch.I would love to hear all the cricketer and fan’s experience about playing on the similar conditions #experience— Irfan Pathan (@IrfanPathan) June 25, 2019
Wasting no time, skipper Aaron Finch gets to business! He slams a boundary in the second ball itself off Woakes. Australia end the first over with seven runs
Finch and Warner open for Australia. Woakes with the attack as match underway at Lord's.
