Australia cricket team skipper Steve Smith rued how his batsmen lost focus, giving away their wickets cheaply after a “great start” that eventually led to their loss against England cricket team in their final group match on Saturday. Ben Stokes hit a career-best 102 not out and captain Eoin Morgan 87 as England knocked Australia out of the Champions Trophy with a 40-run win at Edgbaston. England collapsed to 35 for three chasing 278 for victory before left-handers Morgan and Stokes changed the course of the game with a fourth-wicket partnership of 159. When a second downpour ended the match with England 240 for four off 40.2 overs, the hosts were well ahead of the 205 they needed for a win under the Duckworth-Lewis-Stern method for rain-affected limited overs matches.
