So that is from this game! We have our firsts Semi Finalists this year's World Cup, Australia. England on the other hand, have a tough road ahead. They probably need to win both their games against New Zealand and India to qualify. On the 26th though, it is one side which has a chance to seal its place in the Semis, New Zealand and the other who needs to win all their games starting from Wednesday to have a chance to make it to the semi finals, Pakistan. They both lock horns in Edgbaston and the game begins at 1030 local (0930 GMT). Till then take care and goodbye!

Australia skipper, Aaron Finch says they are pleased and reckons they have played good cricket and are looking to build on it. Tells England are a stand out side and can take the game away. Says it was important to chip in with wickets as Stokes and Buttler can take the game away. On the inspired team changes, he says Behrendorff was bought as he can swing the ball both ways and says it is fantastic the way he bowled. On Warner's new approach, Finch tells that he is respecting the bowlers more and is looking to build a base rather than going after it. Tells they are confident and it gives them a good chance to play their best cricket.

England skipper, Eoin Morgan says they were outplayed and they did not bowl well upfront. Reckons they played well in the top and capitalized on it. Says though it got easier to bat later on they did not apply themselves in. Says the wicket was soft, he laughs and says wish they would have batted. Credits Finch for the innings they played and Reckons it is not too disappointing as they still have their faith in their own hands. Admits they need to turnaround everything and he is not looking to point out just one error.

MAN OF THE MATCH, Aaron Finch, says anytime you contribute when your team wins, is special. Says it was good to see through the initial tough period and get to a century. Tells us building that opening stand with Warner was crucial. On this being his 7th ODI ton against England, he says it gives him confidence and it is good to score against a tough opposition. Says it was seaming and zipping initially in the day and they were just looking to cash in on the lose deliveries.

Earlier in the day, Australia were inserted and their openers got them off to a brilliant start. Their skipper, scored his second ton of the World Cup. They could not finish strongly but the runs they had on the board proved to be enough in the end.

Their bowling was probably about the two left-arm seamers! One who is making a name for himself in ICC Tournaments and the other who has put in a performance he would never forget in only his second game in World Cups. Jason Behrendorff and Mitchell Starc. The two were given the new balls and they ran through the English top order. They were excellent at the death as well. The duo had 9 wickets amongst them with Jason Behrendorff taking 5 and Starc finishing with 4. A word of praise to the others as well as they hardly gave anything away and never let the pressure ease off. Stoinis had one wicket to his name and it was the big one of Buttler.

The much talked English batting line-up failed to chase 232 in their last game and now have failed to overhaul 286 in this one. They have lost this match quite convincingly and there is pin-drop silence in the stadium. They actually can't believe what has happened. Once again their openers failed to get them off to a good start as they lost Vince for a duck. The ever reliable Root did not make an impact and Morgan too was bounced out. Stokes and Bairstow did look to steady the ship but Jonny threw it away. Then Stokes and Buttler revived English hopes but Khawaja's catch put an end to that stand too. All the hopes were then pinned on Stokes but the task was too much. An outstanding delivery saw him being dismissed 11 short of a ton. The game was more-or-less in Australia's bag when they got rid of the all-rounder and they pressed home the advantage and won the game easily in the end.

AUSTRALIA ARE INTO THE SEMIS! They are the first team to book their place in the knockouts after beating tournament favorites, England. However, I am not sure who will be more happier at the moment? Australia, Pakistan or Bangladesh because this loss has completely opened the table.

W 44.4
Mitchell Starc to Adil Rashid

OUT! Straight to covers! Starc gets the last man! His 4th wicket today. He goes full and around off, Rashid looks to hit it over covers but ends up hitting it flat to Stoinis over there. He makes no mistake. AUSTRALIA WIN BY 64 RUNS!
