  • 48.6

    OUT! Bowled. Mark Wood to Jason Behrendorff. Reverse Swing-In half volley, outside off stump on the front foot Steer, missed to.
    Full and straight does the trick. Too quick for Behrendorff and Australia are all out for 223.
    England finish off what has been a terrific performance with ball in hand. After losing the toss they could only have dreamt of the start they got, restricting Australia to 14-3 with both openers back in the shed. Good fightback shown by Steve Smith and especially Alex Carey after the vicious blow he took to the chin and it seemed Australia would post a decent total. Once the partnership was broken though England began to turn the screw again and Chris Woakes in particular was outstanding along with Jofra Archer.
    224 to win for England to make the World Cup final. This is going to be a tense chase for everyone involved on both sides.

  • 47.1

    OUT! Run Out. Chris Woakes to Steven Smith. Off cutter back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot flick, hit body to wicketkeeper, direct hit by Buttler. Brilliant from Buttler. Getting the glove off quickly and picking the right end to have a throw at. Smith is marginally short of his crease but these moments are what win you a game.

    APPEAL! Chris Woakes to Steven Smith. Length ball, outside off stump on the back foot working, hit pad to point for 1 run, shy attempt by Archer, appeal made for L.B.W. Big moment in the game. If Smith was given out here Australia would have lost all of their momentum. Luckily for him the umpire says not out and ball-tracking shows umpire's call on the stumps.

  • 32.1

    FOUR! Jason Behrendorff to Eoin Morgan. Leg cutter back of a length, outside off stump on the front foot pulling, well timed in the air under control past long on for 4 runs.

    The England captain fittingly hits the winning runs to take his team to a World Cup final on home soil. What a performance all round from the hosts and they were deserving winners. There might have been a few nerves around when the openers went out but Jonny Bairstow and Jason Roy put all that to bed with a 124 run partnership. From then on it was plain sailing for the captain and Joe Root to knock off the remaining runs.
    The final is set then. New Zealand and England go head to head on Sunday to see who will be crowned champions for the first time ever. See you then.
