Prime to show World Cup final

Jason Roy

In any case, the hosts got their act right and won their last two games against India and New Zealand to meet all requirements for the semi-finals of the show-stopper event.

Eoin Morgan wants his England side to embrace their "dream" World Cup semi-final against Australia and prove their recent defeat to the old enemy was nothing but a bump in the road.

Australia skipper Finch danced around the question of whether all-rounder Glenn Maxwell will be dropped following a run drought. The trend of the tournament has been to bat first.

Sharma, the Cricket World Cup's top run-scorer with 648, edged Matt Henry behind off the fourth ball of his innings. And now England captain Eoin Morgan seems to have a beef with Kevin Pietersen.

The hosts have gone to lengths to avoid a repeat on Thursday.

"Whether that's from being involved in the first ball, it's just finding a way to deal with it and get involved in the game as quickly as possible".

Since then, Warner has returned to global cricket in triumph following a ball-tampering incident that saw him banned for 12 months.

"The support we have had throughout the tournament has been unbelievable and certainly something I have never experienced in my life".

Warner's exit brought in Handscomb, only recently called into the squad after Usman Khawaja's tournament-ending hamstring injury, but he was bowled by Woakes for just four.

Kohli in fact had tried to stop the taunts on the field by urging India supporters - who dominated a capacity crowd at the Oval - to clap, rather than boo Smith when the Australian was fielding on the boundary.

If England reach the final, we will definitely have a new World Cup victor, but can they restrict Australia first from entering into the final? We are not really bothered as before the World Cup we preferred to chase. "Whoever plays the best cricket will go through", he said. Their opponents in this semi-final have been consistently better in this World Cup and beat England comprehensively two weeks ago.

Root and his team-mates also triumphed the last time they met Australia at the Birmingham venue, winning by 40 runs (DLS) in the Champions Trophy two years ago.

The Black Caps will be the underdogs regardless of which side they face having lost to both England and Australia in group play.

If the thrills and spills of the India - New Zealand game was anything to go by, the match between Ashes rivals also promises to be an equally high octane number. Logically, their supreme record in past World Cups should not be a guaranteed precursor to ultimate success in this one, but it is a psychological tool for Langer to deploy in approaching this match.
