England thrash Australia to qualify for Cricket World Cup final

Cricket is always hard for them to get a bit of a foothold so to make the final and potentially win would be game-changing for New Zealand.

Pat Cummins can not wait to return to Edgbaston and believes Australia will want revenge in the Ashes opener after their Cricket World Cup exit at England's hands.

England have qualified for the ODI World Cup semis for the first time since 1992 and would want nothing but the title, and they would want it more than any team.

Former England captain Michael Vaughan has no doubt about Morgan's role in transforming the team from a laughing stock into one that could deliver such a complete performance in the eight-wicket thrashing of Australia.

Australia had finished second in the group table after winning seven games, only to be out-classed by an England side they had easily defeated in the group stages. With Chris Woakes (3/20) and Jofra Archer (2/32) cost Australia losing five wickets with a handful of runs on the board.

England captain Morgan: "I think in general throughout the tournament the scores have been a lot lower than they have previously here in the last three or four years". "The reason why England's one-day cricket has been revolutionised is down to Morgan", the Yorkshireman said.

Defending champions Australia were dismissed for just 223 after opting to bat first and England romped to victory in only 32.1 overs.

"I've found myself getting quite emotional watching it because all we wanted four years ago was for England to go out and play in a different style, a different brand of cricket", he told Sky Sports.

Starc is the leading wicket-taker at this World Cup by a fair distance.

The suspect was last heard from in Dallas, according to police. "He's dead", she said. "We were OK with that", Thomas said. She said the boy was gone when she woke up in the middle of the night, but couldn't explain how someone got into her home.

He was adjudged to have gloved a delivery from Pat Cummins through to Australia wicketkeeper Alex Carey, although replays suggested the Surrey batsman had missed the ball by some distance.

"Yes, it's been a process for the last four years".

"But at the same time we came here today to win a semi-final and get ourselves into a position to win another World Cup".

"If we do that, we know we will play good cricket and the opposition will have to play even better to beat us".

Now comes the biggest test, against a New Zealand team that were so impressive in their semi-final win over India.

Batting great Sachin Tendulkar said Williamson's "captaincy and composure" played a key part in the victory over India.

"It will be a matter of the same again trying to produce everything that we can performance-wise but - enjoy the day".

And Morgan has urged the hosts "to not shy away" from the pressure of the final as "it's a day to look forward to".
