England beat Australia to reach Cricket World Cup final

England beat Australia to reach Cricket World Cup final

After beating Australia the hosts who have never won the World Cup will play New Zealand in their first final for 27 years.

"I think giving ourselves the opportunity for Sunday's final is brilliant".

Eoin Morgan's side produced an inspired display to complete a remarkable eight-wicket victory over Australia at Edgbaston and will meet New Zealand at Lord's on Sunday.

"Sunday's not a day to shy away from, it's a day to look forward to, much like against Australia" he said.

"If it doesn't happen, it doesn't happen". We probably needed it out there [on Thursday].

"I think it shows the passion Jason has got for the game, and it is such a big game as well, when he was on the verge of scoring a hundred", he said. Now is not the time to talk about the Ashes but the way he lined up [Mitchell] Starc, I thought he was fantastic.

Morgan, however, will not take anything for granted, especially against Kane Williamson's team who upstaged India in the first semi-final in Manchester.

Archer's pace has been explosive and Australia wicketkeeper Alex Carey will attest to its potency having had to have eight stitches in a chin wound after he knocked his helmet off with an 86mph bouncer. The slow, deliberate start of the English openers paid off as after the first five overs, Roy got into his grove and accelerated the run rate.

Their 124-run stand in Thursday's semi-final against Australia was their fourth successive century partnership in the tournament.

"It definitely pushed the team (when Finch went first ball), emotions were definitely flying after that".

"The Australian loss should set alarm bells ringing for the upcoming Ashes series, even though the team achieved a lot more than what would have been expected a year ago", she wrote. England bowlers were at their stunning best as they restricted the defending champions to a sub-par score of 223. It can be a wicket-taking ball or a dot ball. I try not to get nervous because then you do things you are not meant to do.

"I was getting quite emotional watching that today".

New Zealand batsmen take note.

"That was England's best performance of the World Cup", Strauss told broadcaster Sky Sports.

Such a scenario would open a tidal wave of interest not only in his sport but in Archer himself catapulting him to a level of fame and fortune rarely seen in cricket.
