The damage is done though as Bairstow had taken an earlier review, unsuccessfully so and that meant the Roy could not take a review. An extraordinary knock included five sixes - three in a row off Steve Smith, sending him out of the attack after one over - and nine fours. By that time, though, Australia, who had cracked the popcorn and watched the qualification scenarios from the sidelines, were waiting to play their final game.

Mitchell Starc, who made 29 with the bat, dismissed Bairstow and Pat Cummins denied Roy his century but the match had slipped through Australia's fingers by then. In the last six months or so, there has been a lot of character shown, but it still hurts.

Australia, with some injury scares in the past few day, have been forced to bring a change into their squad and hope that does not affect their cricket and they continue with their prime run. "Playing against Australia is a big occasion in any sport". The English openers starred in a fifty partnership in 59 deliveries.

Aaron Finch described the Australia-England semi-final perfectly: a blockbuster.

The second semi-final will be played between Australia and England in Edgbaston, Birmingham. Woakes struck twice early on as Australia slumped to 14-3 after winning the toss in Birmingham but Steve Smith led the recovery for Australia with 85 and Alex Carey made 46.

Australian coach Trevor Bayliss was drafted in, sparking an impressive transformation that has seen England climb to number one in the ODI rankings and move to within touching distance of World Cup glory.

Followed by the New Zealand's win in the first semifinal of this world cup 2019. And the result was Aaron Finch bagging a golden duck while David Warner and Peter Handscomb not adding much to the team's score.

Archer oozed hostility at the other end, hitting a hopping Carey on the grill of his helmet and dislodging it from his head.

England: Eoin Morgan (capt), Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow, Joe Root, Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler (wk), Chris Woakes, Liam Plunkett, Jofra Archer, Adil Rashid, Mark Wood, Tom Curran, James Vince, Moeen Ali, Liam Dawson. While Trent Boult and Mitchell Santner bagged two wickets each, Lockie Ferguson and Jimmy Neesham also contributed with a wicket each.

So when the two sides were paired up to meet in the Cricket World Cup semi-final, you just knew something special was about to happen.

"I'm sure the boys are disappointed with the chase", Boult said at the time. Smith batted really well today, especially on this pitch.

But while the real trophy is taken back to the ICC headquarters in the UAE, the team takes home a replica.

The victor of today's clash at Edgbaston will face New Zealand in Sunday's final.
