ICC World Cup: Australia beat England by 64 runs, enter semis

@icc

Australia crushing victory dashed England’s World Cup semi-final hopes

Australian captain Aaron Finch hit a perfect century before left-arm quicks Jason Behrendorff and Mitchell Starc shared nine wickets as the reigning champions thumped England by 64 runs at Lord´s on Tuesday to book their place in the semi-finals of the World Cup.

Finch made exactly 100 in a total of 285-7 before England slumped to 221 all out with 32 balls left.

The 64-run loss of England means they could need to win their last two games, beginning with India at Edgbaston on Sunday, in order to make the last four.

Much will depend on the results of Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Pakistan, who can all overhaul Eoin Morgan’s men.

The hosts began the tournament as favourites, but now have little margin for error, with this loss following Friday’s shock reverse to Sri Lanka to make a total of three defeats in six games.

They actually did well to restrict Australia to 285-7, especially after captain Aaron Finch’s century helped his team to 173-1.

However, that target was always going to be a challenge against the dangerous Australia attack in conditions ideally suited to pace bowling.

So it proved. The heart was ripped out of England’s top order and, at 53-4, their chase was in tatters.

Just as he did against Sri Lanka, Ben Stokes played a virtually lone hand for 89, but after he was bowled by a searing Mitchell Starc yorker, England subsided to 221 all out.

Now they face the prospect of having to beat at least one, maybe both, of India and New Zealand – two unbeaten and highly impressive sides.
