Australia vs England Live Score, World Cup 2019: England bowl out Australia for 223 | Cricket News


LIVE BLOG | LIVE SCORECARD | Target for England – 224

Jofra Archer: “To be honest every game we have played from the New Zealand game has been like a semifinal. We just got to keep winning. Maxwell (was my favourite) wicket. He got me at Lord’s, so good to get him back. He (Smith) batted really well especially on this pitch. It nipped a lot more than it swung so probably after the first over we went cross-seam and quarter-seam to get more out of the pitch. Hopefully not (needed with the bat).”

* England need 224 runs to beat Australia and reach their first Cricket World Cup final since 1992. Only Steve Smith, with 85 off 119 balls, offered any real resistance for the Australians as they were dismissed for 223 in 49 overs in the second semi-final at Edgbaston. New Zealand await the winner at Lord’s on Sunday. The Blacks Caps successfully defended 239/8 in the first semifinal against India. Australia haven’t lost any of their seven World Cup semi-finals.

Eoin Morgan:

Exact same. The trend of the tournament has been to bat first. Although Edgbaston has been a maginificent ground. The last time we played here against India, we saw a high scores of 340 and them almost chasing it down. Not really bothered as before the World Cup we preferred to chase. I think whoever plays the best cricket will go through. We have gone from strength to strength. We are going with the same team.

Aaron Finch:

We are going to have a bat. Don’t think it will change too much. Will try to put up a big score. Just one, Peter Handscomb will come in for Usman Khawaja.We are going to have a bat. Looks like a really good wicket and don’t think it will change too much. Hopefully we put up a big total. It gives a lot of experience to the occasion and gives the guys a chance to talk to peoplewho have been in that position before. It is nice but come the day it does not count for a helluva lot. Just one, Peter Handscomb comes in for Usman Khawaja. Yes he (Smith) will bat at three today. He is a world class player and last World Cup he dominated that position. So hoping for much more today.
