As it happened: Jason Behrendorff starred with a five-wicket haul, Mitchell Starc scalped four while Marcus Stoinis picked one as Australia beat England by 64 runs Ben Stokes’ 89 went in vain as other batsmen failed to deliver on the big stage. Earlier, Eoin Morgan won the toss and asked Australia to bat first. Finch and Warner survived the early burst and put together a solid foundation. Aaron Finch cruised to a century, but then England bounced back. Finch departed and thus started the procession. Wickets kept tumbling, Australia never found the momentum they needed to accelerate after the bumper opening stand. Alex Carey scored 38 off 27 balls to lift them to 285.
Follow England vs Australia Highlights below:
One semi-finalist confirmed
Defending champions Australia have stormed into the semis and this means that only three places are up for grabs now. New Zealand, India, England remain favourites while Bangladesh, Pakistan and Sri Lanka have outside chance of making it into the final four.
Mitchell Starc picks the last wicket of the day as he gets rid of Adil Rashid for 25. With that Australia have won the match by 64 runs and they have entered the last four of the competition.

Third instance for Australia where two bowlers have taken 3 or more wickets against ENG in a WC innings.
· In 2007 at North Sound: Bracken, Tait and McGrath took 3 wickets each
· In 1975 at Leeds: GJ Gilmour took 6 and MHN Walker took 3 wickets.
Jason Behrendorff picks his fourth wicket of the innings and it would not have been possible without the exceptional effort at the deep mid wicket boundary by Glenn Maxwell. Chris Woakes hit the ball high in the air and Maxwell took it just inside the ropes and passed it to Finch before going over. England are eight down now.
200 up for England
Adil Rashid comes dancing down the track and hits Nathan Lyon for a huge six over long-on. With that, England have gone past the 200-run mark in the innings.
Aus on 7th heaven!
Jason Behrendorrf returns into the attack and he gets rid of Moeen Ali for 6. The southpaw edges the ball into the hands of keeper Alex Carey and England have lost their seventh wicket now. Australia three wickets away from securing a place in the semis.
This was only the second time for England that there has been a fifty run stand for the 5th and 6th wicket in World Cup. The last time was in 2007 against Ireland at Providence
o Collingwood and Flintoff: 81 for the 5th wicket
o Collingwood and Nixon: 51 for the 6th wicket.
Mitchell Starc was introduced into the attack to break this partnership and that is what he has done by getting rid of Ben Stokes for 89. The left arm pacer bowled a lethal in swinging yorker and the ball crashed into the off stump. England are six down now as Moeen Ali joins Chris Woakes in the middle.
Four, four and four
Ben Stokes is now thrashing Pat Cummins as he hits him for couple of boundaries in the over. The first one he hit towards point and the second towards extra cover. Chris Woakes makes it 13 from the over as England’s chase has been revived in spectacular fashion.
150 up for England
Pat Cummins bowls on to the pads of Chris Woakes and the right hander flicks the ball for a boundary towards deep mid wicket. With that, England have crossed the 150-run mark and are still with a chance to win this match.
Good over from Stoinis
Marcus Stoinis is keeping things tight and he is not letting the batsmen take him for a ride. England could muster just four singles from the over as the right-hand pacer didn’t let Stokes and Woakes free their arms.
SIX and SIX
Ben Stokes targets Glenn Maxwell has he hits him for two flat sixes towards mid wicket. The part-time spinner concedes 12 runs from the over as apart from the two sixes, Stokes was content with just defending the ball. He knows he has to remain till the end if England are to get closer to the target.
Four overs without a four
England have now gone four overs without a single boundary as Aussies turn on the screws here at Lord’s. Ben Stokes remains key for England he is playing a gem of an innings by holding the innings from one end. But slowly, he running out of partners.
England have lost half their side now as Marcus Stoinis gets rid of Jos Buttler for 25. The right-hander hits ball down the throat of Usman Khawaja at backward square. Chris Woakes joins Ben Stokes in the middle now.
Fifty up for Stokes
Ben Stokes has brought his half-century off just 75 deliveries and he remains crucial for England in this tough chase. Buttler then hits a boundary straight down the ground to make it 8 runs off the over. Australia will start to get a bit nervous now.
Stokes and Buttler have put together 50 runs and are leading England’s charge in the match. While Stokes has looked good and steady, Buttler has looked a bit shaky and is struggling to time the ball the moment. Nonetheless, they have put together fifty stand and have steadied the ship really well.
100 up for England
Ben Stokes sweeps Nathan Lyon for a boundary towards mid wicket and with that, England have crossed the 100-run mark in the 23rd over. Stokes, who seems to be struggling with his hamstring, is doing really well to keep England afloat in the chase.
Australia waste their review
As Michael Clarke said while commentating, ‘emotional review from Australia’. Stoinis insisted on going for DRS after the ball hit Buttler on the pads. Replays showed that the ball had hit him outside of the off-stump. Carey had told Finch that ball was going outside the stump but he went for DRS only on Stoinis’ insistance.
Expensive over from Stoinis
Ben Stokes continues to deal in boundaries as he now take the attack to Marcus Stoinis. The southpaw comes down the track and hits the ball over mid-on fielder’s head for a boundary. 8 runs come from the over from Stoinis as he starts off on a bad note.
Stokes looking good
Ben Stokes takes the attack to Pat Cummins and hits him for his second four of the innings. He came down the track and thumped the ball for a boundary towards mid wicket. If England are to get anywhere near to the target, Stokes and Buttler will have to come up with something spectacular.
Ben Stokes has been in the middle for a while and he should take the initiative to hit runs a bit more freely. Jos Buttler, on the other hand, need to steady himself first and then start taking risk. This partnership remains crucial for England if they are to get anything out of the match.
This is the 9th time that there has been no scores of 30+ among the top 4 English batsman in an innings in World Cup. Also, this is the 2nd time that top 4 English batsman have been dismissed under 30 against Australia in World Cup.
Bairstow departs now
Jason Behrendorff picks his second wicket of the innings as he gets rid of Jonny Bairstow for 27. Short delivery from Behrendorff and Bairstow top edges it into the hands of Pat Cummins at mid wicket. England have lost their fourth wicket now.
50 up for England
Bairstow and Stokes have put together 24 runs so far and with that, England have crossed the 50-run mark in the 13th over. These two have done well to hold the innings together after three early wickets threatened to derail the chase.
Stokes off the mark
Ben Stokes has taken 12 balls to get off the mark and boy was it worth the wait. The southpaw came dancing down the track and hit Jason Behrendorff towards extra cover for a boundary. England look to build partnership to get out of trouble.
Jonny Bairstow is holding fort on one end and also keeping the scoreboard ticking. He hits Behrendorff for a glorious boundary towards extra cover to take his count to fourth.
Pat Cummins starts off with a maiden over as Australia are firmly on top of their rivals at the moment. They have lost three early wickets and there is no sign of things changing straightaway. England need a partnership to bail them out of trouble.
Skipper falls now
Mitchell Starc drops the ball short and Eoin Morgan went for the pull shot. The ball took a leading edge and Pat Cummins took a good catch at fine leg. England have lost their third wicket now and are in big trouble. Atrocious batting from the Englishmen.
Morgan shows intent
Skipper Eoin Morgan comes down the track and hits Jason Behrendorff for a boundary straight down the ground. The left-arm pacer concedes 6 runs in the over as England look to get a move after the fall of two early wickets.
Mitchell Starc has gotten the prized scalp of Joe Root for 8. Starc bowled a swinging delivery and Root missed the line of the ball and it crashed into the stumps. England have lost their second wicket as Eoin Morgan joins Jonny Bairstow in the middle. Wicket maiden for Starc as Australia are off to a flying start in England chase.
James Vince going back into the huts set an unfortunate record for England. This is the first time in World Cups and ninth time in ODIs, that the opening partnership for England has been broken without a run on the board against Australia.
Root starts well
Joe Root hits his first boundary of the innings off Mitchell Starc. The left-arm pacer bowled on to the pads of Root and the right-hander simply flicked the ball towards fine leg for a boundary. Starc concedes 7 runs off his first over.
Australia strike early
Jason Behrendorff has provided a breakthrough to Australia on the second ball of the chase itself as he castles James Vince for 0. The right-hander was beaten for pace and swing and the ball crashed into his middle and off.
Jason Behrendorff has the new ball in his hands and he will bowl the first over of the innings. James Vince and Jonny Bairstow are opening the innings for the hosts as they chase 286 to strengthen their position at the top half of the table.
Australia eye early wickets
Despite Finch ton, Australia aren’t in a good position as England somehow managed to restrict them under 300. The game plan for the defending champions will be to pick early wickets and put pressure on the hard-hitting English batsmen.
Carey has played a cameo here. Makes room and smacks the final ball through covers to finish with a boundary. He has lifted Australia to 285/7. Yes, this is 40 runs short than what Australia would have expected, but England have a score to chase, Australia have a score to defend
2 overs remain
This has been a superb fightback by England, Australia cannot believe the hole they have dug themselves into after such a prolific start and the superb century by the captain. Alex Carey has the ability, can he power them to 280 on this surface?
The procession refuses to stop. Now Cummins wafts at a wide one, nicks it and the ball carries to Jos Buttler who tumbles over and takes the catch. Good bowling by Chris Woakes, England are really getting all the momentum here, this has not been a good phase for Australia
This has been a brilliant comeback by England, they have kept chipping away at the wickets and after the dismissal of Aaron Finch, Australia have never found any momentum. Smith wanted to slog the ball over mid-wicket, does not time it and drags it across to long on. Australia have slipped away here
Smith holds the key
England have pulled things back here and Steve Smith is the key man for Australia. He is joined in the centre by Alex Carey, who too is a dangerous batsman lower down the order, but Smith has to play right till the end, Australia need a score in excess of 280.
Stoinis run out
Steve Smith reaches out, drives a ball to wide long off and takes off. Stoinis always wanted a second run, he sprints, Smith has turned his back to him and there is a massive breakdown in communication. Stoinis and Smith are shaking hands and Buttler takes the bails off at the striker’s end.
England have pulled things back
This is a good passage of play for the hosts. They have managed to pull things back nicely. Stoinis and Smith are being watchful, but they will look to accelerate.
He smacked a 6 and then a four, he looked dangerous and then like Glenn Maxwell, guided a short of a good length ball straight into the hands of Jos Buttler. England have the 3rd wicket and Australia might just get derailed here. Good period of play for the hosts
Finch 100, Finch out
The Australian captain notched up his century, soaked up the applause, hugged Steve Smith and then took guard again. Archer bowled a bumper, Finch went for the hook, ball takes the top edge and is caught at deep fine leg. Well, England will be happy with the end result, Australia will be happy with the platform.
Archer is back
Eoin Morgan is on the attack. He has brought back Jofra Archer and wants to attack Steve Smith when he is fresh. England need to keep picking up wickets if they are to haul back this scoring rate
He had to be the man for Eoin Morgan and England. Runs up, bowls a full delivery, there is shape to the delivery, Khawaja plays all over it and the ball smashes the stumps. England needed this wicket and Ben Stokes has pulled one back for England.
Australia bossing the game right now
Great start by the Aussies with bat in hand in favourable bowling conditions. Finch batting as well as I’ve seen in 12months. England on the other hand look very flat. Long way to go but Aussies well on top at this stage.— Mark Waugh (@juniorwaugh349) June 25, 2019
Stokes in the attack
Well, Eoin Morgan is desperate for a wicket and Ben Stokes has the ball in his hand. Very often, the all-rounder makes things happen and he needs to do it for his skipper. England need a wicket, Australia are bossing this at the moment
Buttler spills it
Missed stumping! That was a regulation take but Buttler fails to collect the ball. Usman Khawaja looks upwards to thank the powers above. Well he should thank Buttler instead. A superb googly from Rashid, Khawaja had no clue and unfortunately neither did Buttler behind the stumps. England are having a dreadful day in the field.
Edged and four! No slip for Moeen Ali and Finch once again survives and guess what collects another boundary.
Finch on the charge
He might have lost his partner but that doesn’t mean Finch will change his approach. He takes on the long-on fielder and clears it easily to collect his second six of the match - both off Moeen Ali.
Warner falls for 53
OUT! England were desperate for a wicket and Moeen Ali provides the breakthrough. The extra bounce does the trick for Ali. This is flatter and around off, Warner goes back and initially looks to cut but the ball takes off. Warner is surprised by it. He looks to bail out of the shot but it is too late. The ball hits the top part of the bat and balloons to point where Root takes a catch moving to his left. A big stand comes to an end. England will now look to pull things back a little.
500 runs for Warner in this World Cup
Did someone say Warner is not at his best? He surely isn’t but if not being at your best brings 500 runs for your team in 7 innings then be it. Superb stuff from the left-handed opener.
Warner joins the party
20th ODI fifty for David Warner.
6th fifty+ score vs England in ODIs. First fifty vs England after 7 intervening innings. Last fifty was in 2015 at Southampton. He scored 59 in that innings.
4th fifty+ score in his last 5 innings in ODIs.
A fantastic start for Australia having been asked to bat first.— Cricket World Cup (@cricketworldcup) June 25, 2019
Both Finch and Warner have passed fifty and they've reached their third century partnership of the tournament!

Fifty for Finch
25th ODI fifty for Aaron Finch, not the most convincing one but he will take it any day at any given point. This is turning out to be a great opening partnership for Australia.
Warner takes on Rashid
Just like he did to the fast bowlers, Warner straightaway tries to attack Adil Rashid, doesn’t connect well in the first ball but makes it up in the third ball with a thundrous sweep shot and follows it up with a backfoot punch past covers for another boundary.
Brute power from Finch
FOUR! That was not all that short to be honest but Finch does extremely well to quickly transfer his weight and muscle it past the square-leg fielder for a boundary. This is not looking good for England.
Wood leaking runs
12 runs from the over, not a good one from Wood. He erred on both sides of the wicket. Warner and Finch looking to drive the advantage home now
A couple of boundaries and a few play and misses in between. This over sums up the match so far. Nothing that Chris Woakes did wrong there but credit to Finch for remaining positive despite not being in the best of touches today.
5th fifty partnership for the opening wicket for Australia against England in World Cups.
7th fifty+ stand between the pair for the opening wicket in World Cup. 6 out of the 7 fifty+ partnerships between the pair have been in this World Cup.
21st fifty+ partnership between the pair in ODIs.
10 runs coming from the last over of the first Powerplay and Australia have reached 44 for no loss. Be it luck or anything else, Australia would be the happier team after the first 10 overs.
Oohs and Aahs
An edge here, an LBW shout there, a ball just going over the stumps, England have had everything but a wicket in the first few overs. Finch and Warner have somehow managed to hold their fort.
Brilliant from Woakes
Woakes had both Warner and Finch hopping in this over. Finch survived a close LBW shout and Warner nearly lost his off stump there. England are knocking on the doors for the first wicket.
Australia riding their luck
Almost, almost the first wicket for England. Finch once again plays away from his body and scoops it towards the point, where James Vinces makes an honest attempt but fails to hold on to it. A half chance for sure.
First boundary for Warner
Good from Warner. Archer bangs it in short, Warner was quick to go on the backfoot and pull it in the gap to collect his first boundary.
Warner flirts with danger
Uppish and just over the point fielder’s head, Warner will come back for two. Not the most convincing of shots from the left-hander, he didn’t expect the ball to bounce from that length but it did. A very good over from Woakes, only 2 from it.
Delightful from Finch
FOUR! Full and wide outside off, a so un-Archar like delivery and Finch takes full advantage of it. Takes a good stride forward and times it to perfection to collect a boundary off Archer’s first ball.
Almost a wicket
Edged and it flies over the second slip for a boundary. Nearly an ideal start for Woakes and England. Pitched right up, Finch flashes hard and that’s what goes in his favour as the edge flies over the slips. A moral victory for Woakes but 4 runs to Australia.
Woakes with the new ball
The players are out in the middle. It looks like Aaron Finch will take the first ball for Australia and for England, like always, it will be Chris Woakes. The countdown begins...
Australia (Playing XI): David Warner, Aaron Finch(c), Usman Khawaja, Steven Smith, Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Alex Carey(w), Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Nathan Lyon, Jason Behrendorff
England (Playing XI): James Vince, Jonny Bairstow, Joe Root, Eoin Morgan(c), Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler(w), Moeen Ali, Chris Woakes, Adil Rashid, Jofra Archer, Mark Wood
‘Not too disappointed about batting first. Wasn’t too sure about the wicket, but I would have probably bowled first as well. Two changes for us - Nathan Lyon and Jason Behrendorff in, they replace Adam Zampa and Nathan Coulter-Nile. We have played some consistent cricket without being really outstanding, think we can still improve. If we go too hard, we will be opened up in the death overs, we found it out against Pakistan. We aren’t really bothered about how the crowd react (to Smith and Warner). Every game is important, in such a condensed tournament, two points is crucial and we can’t take any game lightly.’
Morgan wins toss, England bowl first
‘We are going to bowl. No-brainer, it’s a bit soft on the top, it rained overnight and the wicket was under covers. Hopefully, the sun will come out later and make batting easy. We are playing the same XI. Jofra had a slight side issue and we had a precautionary fitness test. We are confident, we have had some success against Australia recently and think we have a good side.’
‘The pitch is a little bit to the east and it means the square boundaries are short. The straight boundaries are huge though. It’s overcast, there might be a bit of movement, some green grass on the pitch, but it’s dry underneath, although it looks a bit cold. The captain winning the toss would like to bowl first’, says Michael Clarke in his pitch report
It’s building up
Morgan won’t stop fans from booing Smith, Warner
England captain Eoin Morgan insists it is not his job to tell supporters how to react to shamed Australia stars David Warner and Steve Smith when the arch rivals meet in a crucial World Cup clash on Tuesday.
Warner and Smith have found themselves booed by some fans in England after returning to international cricket following year-long bans for ball-tampering.
Australia coach Justin Langer has pleaded for the taunts to stop, with India captain Virat Kohli and Pakistan skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed telling their supporters to lay off the duo.
It will be a clash of titans when tradition rivals England and Australia take on each other in the ICC World Cup 2019 at the Lord’s on Tuesday. England, who start the tournament as favourites, are currently fourth in the points table and they have an impressive net run rate of +1.457.On the other hand, Australia are currently second in the points table with five wins from six matches and a decent net run rate of +0.849.
Here are the top 5 player battles from England vs Australia.
Jofra Archer is having a fitness test
England’s newest pace sensation has reportedly picked up a side problem ... and is being put through his paces as we speak. Well, not the start the hosts would have wanted.
Well, now it is confirmed that he is fit to play.
England’s batsmen one-dimensional, not versatile - Boycott
England’s “one-dimensional” batsmen are flat-track bullies who do not have an alternative plan if they are required to graft an innings in bowler-friendly surfaces, former batsman Geoffrey Boycott has said.
“England are a one-dimensional batting unit and don’t seem to have a plan B or C,” Boycott wrote in a column for The Telegraph. “If they do have alternative plans, they do not execute them very well.
England Predicted XI against Australia
However, despite the shocking result, it is highly unlikely that England will tinker with their playing XI. However, there is a good chance that Liam Plunkett can make his return to the side in place of Chris Woakes. Woakes has not been that effective lately and Plunkett’s raw pace and bounce can be an asset against the Aussies.
Read about their predicted XI.
Australia Predicted XI against England
When it comes to the team composition, it is highly unlikely that Australia will be making any changes to their side. The only possible change can be the inclusion of Nathan Lyon in place of Adam Zampa but the chances of that happening is quite low. The team performed quite well against Bangladesh and they will be looking to repeat that show once again when they take on tournament favourites England at the Lord’s.
Read about their predicted XI here.
The different qualification scenarios
They are slated to play against England, New Zealand and South Africa and need to win one more match to guarantee qualification. However, if they stay on 10 points, they would then hope that Sri Lanka lose at least two of their remaining fixtures, and Bangladesh and Pakistan lose at least one match.
Read about the other teams here.
Shane Warne has a suggestion or two for Australia
Lastly, re the fans at Lords & booing Smith and Warner. I don’t like any players being booed in any sport, but if the fans who pay their $$ want to, then they are entitled too - go for it. But do it at your own peril as I know this will not effect them - but could inspire !!!!!!— Shane Warne (@ShaneWarne) June 25, 2019
‘New MS Dhoni of world cricket’
Justin Langer has hailed Jos Buttler as the new MS Dhoni of world cricket.
“Jos is an unbelievable player. I love watching him bat. He is the new Dhoni of world cricket,” said Langer.
“I hope he gets a duck in this (Tuesday’s) game obviously, but I saw him at Somerset and he is an unbelievable athlete and an incredible finisher,” the Australian coach added on the eve of their World Cup match against England. Buttler has scored 3728 runs at an average of 41.42 and a strike-rate of 120.25 in 137 matches.
World Cup pressure, England and Australia
England are under pressure - well, how did this happen? The number 1 side, the overwhelming favourites are suddenly feeling the pinch and now, they are up against them, yes, Australia. Eon Morgan and side lost to Sri Lanka, they lost some of the swagger and when they take on Australia, they need to curb down on the swagger and focus on getting over the line. Flip the coin, and there is Australia - the side which has discreetly in an almost unAustralian way gone about its business. A blip against India, few boos here, few sloganeering there, but Aaron Finch and side have cast it all away as white noise and have marched on. On paper, this could be a match between England batting and Australian bowling, but when the match begins, that paper can be crumbled up and thrown away.
