England beat Australia by 40 runs in rain-hit match

With this win, England entered the semi-finals as the top-ranked team from the group with six points.

But, after a brief rain break, Eoin Morgan (87) and Stokes (102 not out) dismantled the Australian attack, scoring freely in a partnership of 159 before Morgan was run out when closing in on his century. Bangladesh have three points from three matches, while Australia could only pocket two points - a point each from two washed out games and New Zealand have one point.

Aaron Finch (68) and Steve Smith (56) scored twin half centuries at the top to lay the foundation but Australia lost five wickets within 15 runs as they failed to accelerate in the end overs. It has been the subject of regular questions over the past week but although it is clearly a major issue in the background, it wasn't the reason for Saturday's loss.

Being put in to bat first, Australia made a rapid start to their innings before opener David Warner was caught behind off the bowling of Wood for 21.

Teetering next to the boundary edge, Roy threw the ball into the air to avoid carrying it over the foam marker and hopped either side of it before collecting and completing an extraordinary play.

But Merkel, whose country hosts this year's global climate summit, said it was now time to look ahead. Trump announced the withdrawal on Thursday, tapping into his "America First" campaign theme.

Wood and Rashid picked up four wickets apiece, while Stokes chipped in with one.

Emerging from the rain delay in a hard situation following the dismissals of Roy (4), Alex Hales (0), and Joe Root (15), Morgan and Stokes still managed to play with the freedom preached by England's Australian coach Trevor Bayliss since his appointment in 2015.

Even though Adam Zampa fell to Wood not long after, Head's unbeaten knock of 71, which came off 64 balls and included five boundaries and two sixes, helped Australia reach 277/9 off their 50 overs.

Chasing 278 to win, England opener Jason Roy's woes with the bat continued when he was given out lbw off the bowling of Starc for four runs on the second ball of the innings.
