The Trophy shared between India and Sri Lanka. The trophy belongs to the

:00:12.:00:22.

Australian team. 2013, India! Hello and welcome to Edgbaston for the

:00:23.:00:27.

final group a match of the 2017 Champions Trophy. For Australia this

:00:28.:00:33.

is a must win. For England a victory would continue their winning

:00:34.:00:37.

momentum into the semifinals, but their real incentive must surely be

:00:38.:00:41.

the chance to eliminate their oldest foes. The scenario is simple.

:00:42.:00:46.

England are through to the semifinals no matter what, and

:00:47.:00:49.

Australia will qualify if they win this game. In the event of Australia

:00:50.:00:54.

losing or the match being washed out, Bangladesh will progress.

:00:55.:00:57.

Regardless of the result, England will finish top of the group because

:00:58.:01:03.

of the primary tie-break rule. England's opponents in the first

:01:04.:01:07.

semifinal on Wednesday are yet to be decided, with the hotly contested

:01:08.:01:12.

group B match is concluding on Monday. All four teams level on two

:01:13.:01:17.

points, they all have a chance to qualify. England remain unchanged

:01:18.:01:20.

from their win over New Zealand. The only question mark has been the form

:01:21.:01:27.

of Jason Roy who scored 27 runs in his past five innings and has

:01:28.:01:30.

reached 50 just once in his last ten. The captain hasn't wavered from

:01:31.:01:38.

backing Jason Roy despite the presence of Jonny Bairstow on the

:01:39.:01:43.

sidelines. Australia also unchanged but it's worth noting that other

:01:44.:01:47.

than Finch, Warner, Smith and Henriques, the rest are yet to face

:01:48.:01:50.

a ball in this tournament largely thanks to the British weather. Eoin

:01:51.:01:55.

Morgan won the toss and elected to bowl first. England have lost 12 of

:01:56.:02:00.

the last 15 one-day internationals against Australia, but they have 12

:02:01.:02:06.

of the last three. The forecast suggests it showers mid-afternoon

:02:07.:02:10.

which should hopefully allow enough time to complete the match. If the

:02:11.:02:13.

past couple of days in the UK are anything to go by the art of

:02:14.:02:18.

predicting a result is difficult even for the experts. This one could

:02:19.:02:22.

definitely go either way in front of a noisy Edgbaston crowd. Chris

:02:23.:02:39.

Gaffney and Kumar Dharmasena are the umpires. COMMENTATOR: Just holding

:02:40.:02:51.

up of the seam. A good start from Jake Ball, a maiden to start with.

:02:52.:02:57.

Pummelled down the ground by Finch, is looking for that short ball.

:02:58.:03:04.

Well, that's off a thick inside edge. Finch was looking to hit that

:03:05.:03:08.

one straight as well. The second boundary of the over. Short. Pulled

:03:09.:03:17.

away, very, very firmly. Just in the last few deliveries, maybe a sense

:03:18.:03:21.

by these batsmen are starting to find their range. That's a great

:03:22.:03:28.

shot from Warner. Just wait for the right ball in the right slot and let

:03:29.:03:33.

your instincts take over. That's what he's attempting. Because he's

:03:34.:03:36.

out there he's still got that chance. You are on the way out, he

:03:37.:03:40.

was on the way back in, is that right? More evidence of the trust

:03:41.:03:51.

that exists between Warner and Finch. Your partner calls and you're

:03:52.:03:56.

off. That's why they bat well together, they trust the call. Finch

:03:57.:04:01.

is away and you still a couple of singles. Adil Rashid is quite fine

:04:02.:04:06.

down there at fine leg. Another boundary for Warner. Just a bit

:04:07.:04:13.

tight. Warner is a class act. If you get a bit too tired, any resemblance

:04:14.:04:18.

of a bad ball, he generally puts it away. Bowled. Good length. Both

:04:19.:04:29.

batsmen almost hanging, looking for the short ball. That's a bit fuller

:04:30.:04:31.

and a better length. They are very keen, these two

:04:32.:04:45.

Australians, to nick any singles they can. That's why Finch has been

:04:46.:04:57.

looking when the bowlers have been a bit wide. He didn't quite connect.

:04:58.:05:02.

He just watched these two, there's a nod and off you go. Wide of mid-on.

:05:03.:05:11.

Very, very quick onto anything short today. Short cover. One slip in

:05:12.:05:24.

play. Is that an edge? It is! Warner's on his way. Good bowling,

:05:25.:05:28.

good length, grabbing the outside edge. Wood, England's talisman in

:05:29.:05:42.

this tournament so far. Going across him, finds the outside edge, and a

:05:43.:05:46.

big wicket for England. Just the man they want to get. Warner gone the

:05:47.:06:00.

21. Good stroke. As soon as it gets up here and across the stumps, Steve

:06:01.:06:05.

Smith very rarely misses out. It's been wonderful to watch these top

:06:06.:06:10.

batters and Smith in particular. He hits through the line. It's

:06:11.:06:19.

glorious. Really good stroke there from Finch. Is that the stroke that

:06:20.:06:34.

gets him going? Outstanding shot. He's going to get back, Smith. It

:06:35.:06:40.

was an awkward one for mid-on. Stokes was the fielder, he got

:06:41.:06:46.

himself into an awkward position, a backhanded role in the end. For a

:06:47.:06:51.

moment Smith was in real trouble. Extravagant. Pulled away and pull

:06:52.:06:59.

hard. That's going to go away quickly for four. He's tried quite a

:07:00.:07:10.

bit already. That's four more. Leg side followed by off-side, pressure

:07:11.:07:16.

on Stokes. He's been a bit short. An overcorrection, there. As good as

:07:17.:07:21.

the pull shot was from Finch, I think this is an even better shot.

:07:22.:07:26.

Jason Roy had no chance, it flies away to the fence. Edged away. It

:07:27.:07:31.

was a slip a roundabout first slip, Buttler couldn't get there. Streaky

:07:32.:07:35.

from Smith. It was full and wide. Tucked away on the leg side. That

:07:36.:07:50.

will be 50 fat Aaron Finch. He's got a good record against England. He's

:07:51.:07:54.

played a lot of cricket and County cricket in this country. He's a

:07:55.:07:58.

danger man, make no mistake. He's played very well. Seven boundaries

:07:59.:08:05.

in that total, just 47 balls. Really important for Australia but Aaron

:08:06.:08:09.

Finch goes on with this. He can be very destructive at the back-end of

:08:10.:08:17.

the innings as well. Driven down the ground, gets past mid-on.

:08:18.:08:20.

Outfielders always quick at Edgbaston. Lovely shot from Steven

:08:21.:08:28.

Smith. Close. Has he just got outside the line? He's begging for

:08:29.:08:34.

the lbw. The key is the line there. Morgan asking, did it hit him in

:08:35.:08:39.

line? He's asking Buttler. Buttler says, no, skipper. Another wrong

:08:40.:08:48.

one. There's enough doubt for the England captain not to go upstairs.

:08:49.:08:58.

Only the inside edge was debatable. Three reds. Full toss. He never

:08:59.:09:10.

misses out, Steve Smith. You bowl him a bad ball, he will hit you for

:09:11.:09:15.

four. Good shot from Finch. He's hit that hard. Finch, in the air.

:09:16.:09:27.

Plunkett's under it. Is it going to land safe? Good catch. Calmness from

:09:28.:09:32.

the skipper. There were three people converging. Morgan yelled, minor!

:09:33.:09:37.

There was a calmness about him, an excellent catch to get rid of the

:09:38.:09:44.

dangerous Aaron Finch. Stokes is the man again. This is an excellent

:09:45.:09:49.

catch from Eoin Morgan. Never easy running back like that. An excellent

:09:50.:09:55.

catch. And a big smile, I think he was pretty relieved he hung on to

:09:56.:09:59.

it, too. Aaron Finch is gone. He was starting to look dangerous.

:10:00.:10:13.

That's a nice shot. That will give Moises Henriques a bit of

:10:14.:10:23.

confidence. A short one, a good shot. That's an excellent shot. He's

:10:24.:10:28.

pretty good on the short ball, Moises Henriques. Back-to-back

:10:29.:10:36.

boundaries. Good shot. Excellent shot. That's another boundary for

:10:37.:10:38.

Henriques. Gone. Henriques. He hit a couple of

:10:39.:10:57.

boundaries and tried to go after Rashid. A pretty soft, loose shot.

:10:58.:11:03.

Good captaincy from Eoin Morgan, bringing the field up. Trying to

:11:04.:11:09.

tempt Henriques to go over the top. He tried it, didn't quite get it and

:11:10.:11:16.

an easy dismissal therefore England. Super shot from Head. That's four.

:11:17.:11:24.

He's got some presence, this boy. Smith on 49. He'll take the single

:11:25.:11:29.

and it'll be more than that, well timed. It's getting away from the

:11:30.:11:34.

fielder, its four and it's his 50. It's only his third against England

:11:35.:11:40.

in 23 innings in one-day internationals. A really nice

:11:41.:11:55.

action. CHEERING The Australians are getting starts

:11:56.:11:59.

but they aren't going on with it. Smith was unhappy with Moises

:12:00.:12:03.

Henriques a short time ago, now he's livid with himself. Talked about the

:12:04.:12:07.

ability to try to transfer his weight back into the shot, he didn't

:12:08.:12:12.

do it here and a simple catch to Liam Plunkett at mid-off.

:12:13.:12:23.

It's a wicket maiden, terrific over. Still 181 but the wickets have

:12:24.:12:28.

changed now. Four. Finally, he's away. Took nine

:12:29.:12:44.

deliveries for Maxwell but England right now are dragging it back. This

:12:45.:12:47.

is hurting Australia's overall total. Edged and just out of the

:12:48.:12:58.

reach at first slip! Joe Root was the man. He put in a good effort.

:12:59.:13:04.

Just couldn't get there. Moeen Ali into his fourth over. He's only gone

:13:05.:13:09.

for seven runs, it's been outstanding. There goes Maxwell.

:13:10.:13:14.

Brilliant fielding! England are making it very difficult at the

:13:15.:13:19.

moment. Really good build-up of pressure here from Moeen. Just as

:13:20.:13:27.

you say that, he releases it. The man on the reverse sweep of behind

:13:28.:13:30.

square so hits it in front of square. Root goes back on the extra

:13:31.:13:38.

cover in a circle. Saying you can have a single, if you want. He hits

:13:39.:13:44.

it hard and hits it for four. That's the advantage of having the reverse

:13:45.:13:49.

sweep in your locker. It means Rashid has to go behind square. If

:13:50.:13:53.

you didn't have a reverse sweep this would have gone for one run to the

:13:54.:14:04.

sweeper. Again, attacking him up. He moved him squarer, not square

:14:05.:14:09.

enough. That was wide. He wanted to bowl a short ball. Good

:14:10.:14:12.

communication between Bonn and captain there. -- bowler and

:14:13.:14:20.

captain. Tennis shot and nailed for four. Good batting from Travis Head.

:14:21.:14:27.

He's looked really dangerous today. He said everything right in the

:14:28.:14:32.

middle of the bat. I think we'll see Rashid bowl a lot of wrong ones from

:14:33.:14:38.

this angle to the left-hander. It's a full tossed. It's burst through

:14:39.:14:43.

Eoin Morgan's hands. Poor cricket all round. Hit hard and dropped!

:14:44.:14:52.

That could be costly... And they run a chance! I reckon the end to throw

:14:53.:14:59.

at was Maxwell's, that could be a key moment in this game. They are

:15:00.:15:10.

going to have a look. Comfortably home. Not a man you want to drop

:15:11.:15:13.

with eight overs to go, Glenn Maxwell. There a man out there, he's

:15:14.:15:23.

going to have to jump. He does. I think he's done that, you know! I

:15:24.:15:28.

think he has, its Jason Roy. It's quite brilliant. Roy looks

:15:29.:15:34.

comfortable. They are having a look upstairs. REFEREE: His front foot,

:15:35.:15:49.

please. Can you zoom that angle for me.

:15:50.:16:03.

I can see a gap between his foot and the edge of the green. Glenn Maxwell

:16:04.:16:33.

felt it was out when he was watching the big screen. He's gone for 20.

:16:34.:16:45.

Now, is that the wrong one? Persistency from Morgan comes at a

:16:46.:16:51.

good time in the 44th over. Gets rid of a dangerous Matthew Wade. Knocked

:16:52.:17:08.

him over. A full toss, Rashid strikes again. That sweep shot has

:17:09.:17:17.

gone straight up in the air again. He won't be happy with that,

:17:18.:17:21.

Australia won't be happy either. The advantage of a leg-spinner. Full

:17:22.:17:27.

toss, sweep shots. Top edge found. Australia had just had a bad few

:17:28.:17:49.

overs here. They've lost 3-7 in 11 deliveries. Well bowled. Bowled

:17:50.:18:03.

again. What a spell from Rashid. Superstar. He's got Australia in all

:18:04.:18:16.

sorts of trouble. Cummins is gone the four. A nice quote easy bowling

:18:17.:18:20.

for him. Australia are struggling. Just need a couple of wickets to

:18:21.:18:38.

wrap up this innings for Australia. Australia need to bat out the overs.

:18:39.:18:44.

Another 23 deliveries. That's his 50, Travis Head. Well played. Bowled

:18:45.:18:58.

him! 90 miles an hour full toss and it knocks the woodwork over. England

:18:59.:19:13.

on fire. Too fast, too straight. He's set the tone. His opening

:19:14.:19:23.

bowling combination is good, Zampa is gone. In the air, and... Safe.

:19:24.:19:39.

That was a good effort down there at the man. He picked it up late, just

:19:40.:19:47.

a bit late to move. Now, straight down... Over it goes. The last over

:19:48.:19:53.

off to a good start. Great shot from Travis Head. That's how short that

:19:54.:20:00.

boundary is out there. Not a good delivery from Stokes. You'd think he

:20:01.:20:05.

would try to force Head to go to the boundary. He hits it back into the

:20:06.:20:11.

leg stump channel. As you say, half hit it's gone. Has he got to him

:20:12.:20:20.

again? It's in the air. Great to react down there, Plunkett. He's

:20:21.:20:28.

dropped him. -- late to react. He was very late to move and then

:20:29.:20:31.

didn't pick it up, then there was plenty of time and he just fumbled

:20:32.:20:40.

it. Stokes again. Over the top. That'll be four.

:20:41.:20:51.

They are looking for two, there's only one there. They've got two.

:20:52.:21:02.

Sloppy fielding in the deep. It is two to finish with. It's 277-9.

:21:03.:21:12.

There's runs on the board. There we have it, what a great first innings.

:21:13.:21:17.

Australia started well with the bat. Finch and Warner providing a decent

:21:18.:21:20.

start. Smith steadied the ship in the middle overs but once he was

:21:21.:21:24.

out, they lost their way. The Aussies kept losing wickets, 5-15

:21:25.:21:29.

they lost and weren't able to score with freedom. Australia will owe a

:21:30.:21:33.

lot to Travis Head if they win this game, he was fighting a lone battle

:21:34.:21:37.

towards the end and played a gem of an innings. England owed a lot to

:21:38.:21:43.

Mark Wood and Adil Rashid who both took four wickets. Ben Stokes took

:21:44.:21:46.

the remaining wickets and I'm sure Eoin Morgan would have been pleased

:21:47.:21:52.

he restricted Australians under 300. It's Jason Roy and Alex Hales who

:21:53.:21:56.

open the batting England, with Mitchell Starc bowling first for

:21:57.:22:03.

Australia. COMMENTATOR: Very full and that's a gift for a Jason Roy.

:22:04.:22:09.

Big juicy full toss to start. You wouldn't mind one of those for the

:22:10.:22:17.

first ball of your innings. He's going to attack the stumps but they

:22:18.:22:25.

can't afford to be overly aggressive, the Australians. Easy

:22:26.:22:29.

full toss. England are underway. Close. He's given him. He must have

:22:30.:22:36.

thought long and hard as to whether that pitched outside leg stump, and

:22:37.:22:41.

I think Roy for that reason has decided to review. REFEREE: Can you

:22:42.:22:51.

start from the front foot, please. Front foot coming up. Can you go

:22:52.:22:57.

onto front spin vision, please. Do you have anything from front on,

:22:58.:23:29.

Mark? OK. Can you give me Hot Spot. Rock and roll it. OK, there's no

:23:30.:23:33.

mark. Can you go to ultra-edge. You can stay with your original

:23:34.:24:00.

decision. It's a long, slow death for Jason Roy, who put his first

:24:01.:24:06.

ball away to the boundary but is lbw now to Mitchell Starc. The question

:24:07.:24:10.

is whether it pitched outside leg stump but it pitched just in line.

:24:11.:24:16.

It certainly wasn't going over and Roy has gone. His poor form

:24:17.:24:19.

continues. Just a bit of swing there, Mitchell

:24:20.:24:38.

Starc. Very full again. I like the length of the second ball to Jason

:24:39.:24:42.

Roy. That knee roll length is difficult to play. A bit of shape

:24:43.:24:48.

in, it's the same skids on. Traps Roy plumb in front. Really good

:24:49.:24:55.

start the Starc. That's the sort of length ads rather see him bowl.

:24:56.:25:04.

Gone! I think it has carried. Australia have a second. This is a

:25:05.:25:12.

perfect start for them and now it's Alex Hales, just nibbling outside

:25:13.:25:18.

off-stump. It was spot-on. Spot-on to Joe Root first ball and even

:25:19.:25:24.

better to Alex Hales 's second ball. Catches the seam, thin outside edge.

:25:25.:25:30.

Well taken by Finch at first slip lowdown. A great breakthrough for

:25:31.:25:38.

Australia and Hazlewood. Eoin Morgan joins Joe Root at the crease and

:25:39.:25:41.

Australia on the attack. Three slips. For Hazlewood. Natural angle

:25:42.:25:59.

is across the left-hander as well. See the replay, the Alex Hales

:26:00.:26:04.

dismissal. Textbook. Hazlewood bowling. Slight bit bangle in. Wide

:26:05.:26:11.

on the crease. Just clips the seam. Squares Hales up. Easily taken,

:26:12.:26:19.

Aaron Finch. Seemed like it took forever to get to the man at first

:26:20.:26:22.

slip. He had a long time to think about it. Roy gone for four, Hales

:26:23.:26:31.

for a duck. Mitchell Starc about to start his second over. Nasser, what

:26:32.:26:42.

have you got for us? It's usually a combination of technique and your

:26:43.:26:46.

mental state. Look at the way he falls over, he almost falls over at

:26:47.:26:50.

the crease. Look at the position there. There's the position of a

:26:51.:26:55.

person searching for four. He's running, he's no idea where the ball

:26:56.:26:59.

has gone, what am I doing. He doesn't ask Alex Hales at the other

:27:00.:27:04.

end, what do you reckon about the lbw? He himself calls for the

:27:05.:27:10.

review. Just there, he calls for a review. Technically he's all over

:27:11.:27:17.

the place. But face coming at an angle, he's falling across. No way

:27:18.:27:21.

does he stop and go to Alex Hales, what do you reckon? I'm just going

:27:22.:27:27.

to have one for myself. Speaks a man who knows all about that! LAUGHTER

:27:28.:27:40.

It wasn't quite wide enough, if anything sort of in between. Trying

:27:41.:27:48.

to end ties that big drive and potential neck behind the stumps.

:27:49.:27:57.

Beautiful shot from Joe Root. Classic cover drive, down on one

:27:58.:28:10.

knee, good balance. Eoin Morgan, meeting fire with fire. I'd seen him

:28:11.:28:14.

do this throughout the tournament. Very early on in his innings, he

:28:15.:28:18.

looks to come on the charge to the quick bowler. Whether it's to try

:28:19.:28:22.

and get some momentum into the ball, I think every innings in this

:28:23.:28:24.

Champions Trophy he's done that. Down the leg side. Wade moving

:28:25.:28:43.

sharply to his right but couldn't cling on. Runs given, two to Morgan.

:28:44.:28:52.

It looked like it might have caught a glove on the way past which tends

:28:53.:28:57.

to slow the ball down a bit. Wade moves late to his right with

:28:58.:29:02.

outstretched glove. Didn't get it right in the middle of the glove.

:29:03.:29:08.

Just high on the thumb. The keepers try and catch those right in the

:29:09.:29:11.

webbing of their glove and that one just avoided it and Morgan got a

:29:12.:29:21.

life. Taken! Wade catches the ball, Hazlewood is the bowler and Root the

:29:22.:29:24.

batsman. Classic fast bowling from Hazlewood.

:29:25.:29:36.

Fine edge, easily taken by Matthew at Wade, one step across to his

:29:37.:29:40.

right. Root committed to the poor defence. A little further taken by

:29:41.:29:47.

Wade. The Australians are up. Huge breakthrough. Root on his way.

:29:48.:29:54.

England 3-35. Game on here. Australia made 277-9 for their 50

:29:55.:29:58.

overs. They have three early wickets. That's close, pitching just

:29:59.:30:03.

outside leg stump, I fancy. Huge appeal. I think you are spot on.

:30:04.:30:12.

With the angle that Hazlewood balls and knowing swing as such, you'd

:30:13.:30:16.

think that is pitched just a little bit outside the line of leg stump.

:30:17.:30:20.

Huge appeal from the Australians, as you'd expect, to a brand-new batsman

:30:21.:30:25.

and one of his quality. This is going to be tight. It's one of those

:30:26.:30:30.

real tough ones for the fielding captain.

:30:31.:30:36.

But I thought he was running up, I thought Mitchell Starc is running so

:30:37.:30:44.

gingerly to the crease. It was a really long half volley. The break

:30:45.:30:51.

is done Eoin Morgan no harm. It was a simple step into the ball, plunged

:30:52.:30:55.

into the off-side field. Great start from Morgan. Four boundaries already

:30:56.:31:01.

is now in his innings. 15 deliveries, 18 not out. Fall again

:31:02.:31:09.

ad driven again to the cover boundary again. -- it was full again

:31:10.:31:17.

and driven again to the boundary. There's been nothing in the air at

:31:18.:31:25.

all. Very much like a half volley. He has to bowl yorker, otherwise get

:31:26.:31:33.

back on that knee roll links, bang, right in the middle of the bat.

:31:34.:31:43.

Australia know they can be a bit patient. Good shot from Stokes. They

:31:44.:31:51.

are only really one wicket away from getting into Moeen Ali on the

:31:52.:31:52.

bowlers. 50 up for England. With all is going for four, the

:31:53.:32:12.

short balls going for six. -- with Paul balls going for four. That was

:32:13.:32:17.

a good shot from Morgan, I'm not convinced that was on the splice.

:32:18.:32:22.

Got in a better position than he normally does with the short ball.

:32:23.:32:27.

That hasn't got the extra pace, Josh Hazlewood, he's better off sticking

:32:28.:32:30.

with that line and length and that's not very far. It's just lobbed over,

:32:31.:32:39.

high on the back. -- high on the bat. Very dangerous, his bat swing

:32:40.:32:47.

will put you away all day. Of straight -- stump is nearly two

:32:48.:32:52.

straight for Ben Stokes. Imagine fifth or sixth stump for Ben Stokes.

:32:53.:32:56.

It wasn't a bad delivery, just a fraction straight, but he's so

:32:57.:33:01.

strong, Ben Stokes. He hits the ball right under his eyes, doesn't try to

:33:02.:33:10.

overhit it. Up in the air, top edge, six. It's another six and a short

:33:11.:33:20.

ball. Top edge that one, that's the real short boundary down there.

:33:21.:33:26.

Another want to clear the friends easily. No diagrams on the

:33:27.:33:32.

scorecard, that's six. What a shot that is. He is in such good touch,

:33:33.:33:41.

Ben Stokes. That's just pure class. Absolute class. That's nothing more

:33:42.:33:46.

than the extended ball on the fence. There is a little bit of nibble on

:33:47.:33:52.

the pitch. It's a good length, just a four. Excellent timing, good

:33:53.:33:58.

power. That is -- there is absolutely nothing wrong with that

:33:59.:34:01.

delivery and it's gone for four. He couldn't believe it. Steve Smith

:34:02.:34:04.

couldn't believe it. He's got the double teapot at slip. Recovering

:34:05.:34:12.

from a poor start, now 91-3. Two players with great touch in the

:34:13.:34:13.

middle. That's blistering. In this

:34:14.:34:27.

partnership he is motoring, no doubt about it, England have got

:34:28.:34:33.

themselves saddled again. -- they are settled. Over the top, it will

:34:34.:34:40.

be four. Still pretty good. It's been too much of the same from

:34:41.:34:46.

Australia. Good pace. Using a lot of the short balls. Boy, have Morgan

:34:47.:34:53.

and Stokes pounced on anything loose.

:34:54.:35:02.

That will go as well. He's dishing up. Not a good delivery. It doesn't

:35:03.:35:15.

look to be any real plan to what Cummins is trying to do here. We see

:35:16.:35:25.

the long full toss, a cutter gone wrong. Stokes doesn't miss that. I

:35:26.:35:30.

do love watching Stokes against the seam. He keeps a very subtle. It's

:35:31.:35:38.

short, he latches onto the Paul shot. A chance now, hit too hard.

:35:39.:35:51.

Great shot from Stokes. Made on mid-off-macro in the ring, he

:35:52.:35:56.

touches down the background. -- he punches it down the ground. I'm

:35:57.:36:01.

flabbergasted. Long boundary leg side, two left-handers, it surely

:36:02.:36:02.

was the right call to go to Zampa. All the way, flat. That's 50, what a

:36:03.:36:18.

way to bring it up. It didn't get high at all, but it went all the

:36:19.:36:26.

way. Just the 39 ball for Stokes, he's been beautiful to watch. He's

:36:27.:36:31.

got a England back in the game. Spoken about his ability to get the

:36:32.:36:35.

Paul or book shot and he got onto that quickly. It's his second 50

:36:36.:36:38.

against Australia. The crowd loves it. There's another 50. It's Eoin

:36:39.:36:49.

Morgan who is the sort of player when he finds Paul, and he did

:36:50.:36:54.

before this tournament, he can run with it for a long period of time.

:36:55.:37:01.

Terrific innings. It has been, it's been controlled. The counterpunching

:37:02.:37:05.

has started with the captain Eoin Morgan, striker in at 98, two sixes,

:37:06.:37:08.

six balls. Took himself to be on-side with the

:37:09.:37:21.

fee to open up. All he needed to do was find the gap, and he did. You

:37:22.:37:26.

feel with Stokes he needs is boundaries. Not going to go too long

:37:27.:37:29.

without looking for one. He showed his stumps, up on the on-side,

:37:30.:37:35.

slight lack -- slight lack of a length from Zampa and he's leapt

:37:36.:37:36.

onto it. That will be six. It will bring up

:37:37.:37:53.

the hundreds for the stand between these two as well. They are

:37:54.:37:57.

dominating. You have to have England in front right now.

:37:58.:38:08.

Why bother let's have a bit more of this, have some of that, Glenn

:38:09.:38:15.

Maxwell and finish the over. That's massive, into the crowd. A big way

:38:16.:38:17.

to finish the over. It's 152-3. That shot brings up the 154 England.

:38:18.:38:37.

-- the 150, four England. Down the deck, over Warner's head, he's hit

:38:38.:38:42.

it so hard. He didn't have a chance to brace himself. He's a good

:38:43.:38:47.

player, this Ben Stokes, such a dangerous player. Didn't get the

:38:48.:38:52.

elevation he wanted, Ben Stokes, but he hit it hard enough and flat

:38:53.:38:57.

enough. There was just too much for Warner, just going too fast. Well,

:38:58.:39:05.

now, is that the shot of the day? Goodness me. Have a look at this for

:39:06.:39:11.

a shot. Pat Cummins has bowled a couple of good deliveries today and

:39:12.:39:14.

Ben Stokes has done nothing more than just a block. Have a look at

:39:15.:39:18.

this for a shot. Smith can't believe it either. This is just a little

:39:19.:39:27.

punch, push into the on-side, it's braced away from him. Wow. He's

:39:28.:39:30.

timed it beautifully since he came to the wicket as well. Just

:39:31.:39:42.

continues to do so. Cut and Paul. -- pull.

:39:43.:39:46.

That boundary is now a record, brings up a record partner for the

:39:47.:39:56.

fourth wicket partnership, beating Alan Lamb and Derek Rumble in

:39:57.:40:00.

Melbourne in 1982-83. -- Derek Randall. An excellent game. Talk

:40:01.:40:08.

about excellent game, that's an excellent shot. Someone catch it in

:40:09.:40:12.

the crowd! Hang on, he structured Higuain! That's a long way, that's

:40:13.:40:18.

the big Rowntree out there as well -- hang on, he's dropped it again. A

:40:19.:40:23.

super shot from Eoin Morgan. That's a long way back. It's gone a good 15

:40:24.:40:30.

or 20 rows back. This is just an absolute onslaught from England.

:40:31.:40:36.

It's only 21 overs to go after this. Absolutely smashing Australia all

:40:37.:40:41.

over the park. 91 metres, that one. It's a biggie, nearly an upper deck.

:40:42.:40:49.

He's chipped it up. There's a mix-up! Here's a little bit of a

:40:50.:41:00.

change for Australia! Is it enough? What a confusion here between Stokes

:41:01.:41:04.

and Morgan. Stokes chipping the ball in the leg-side and not sure whether

:41:05.:41:08.

one Morgan was just ball watching at the non-striker's end, but he didn't

:41:09.:41:12.

see Stokes charging towards and by the time he realised he was well,

:41:13.:41:16.

well short of his ground, so Morgan, who has played so well, has been run

:41:17.:41:20.

out half the length of the pitch. He's gone for 87, the wicket

:41:21.:41:25.

Australia desperately needed. England 194-4.

:41:26.:41:34.

So Starc starting his ninth over. And getting belted through the

:41:35.:41:42.

off-side. It's what Buttler can do. He's a powerful striker.

:41:43.:41:48.

Oh, no, lost sight of it. Maxwell. It was there, it was a catch.

:41:49.:42:19.

Somewhere though, he lost that white cherry. Two things, Buttler hits the

:42:20.:42:25.

ball very hard. He absolutely creamed this short wide ball from

:42:26.:42:28.

Starc but you are right, Maxwell just lost it. Started to dip on him,

:42:29.:42:31.

came out of the crowd. Just cruising at the moment even

:42:32.:42:46.

with the wicket of Morgan. Stokes looks in magnificent touch. He's

:42:47.:42:49.

really belted this cricket ball today. That's another boundary. He

:42:50.:42:54.

moves into the 90s. He's played exceptionally well, no doubt about

:42:55.:42:59.

that, right from the first ball as well. See everything in the middle

:43:00.:43:03.

of the bat, crisp timing. The ball has made a beautiful place in the

:43:04.:43:11.

bat. Places it in the covers, four more. Down the ground, could be

:43:12.:43:17.

taken, doesn't carry. Goes for four. The sun is up, Australia's day. Big

:43:18.:43:41.

hit down the ground. Just short. All it can do is ricochet on the

:43:42.:43:45.

boundary for four for Jos Buttler. He's on 21 now.

:43:46.:43:52.

That's it, that's beautifully struck. That is very powerfully

:43:53.:44:03.

struck, Jos Buttler. Right into that swing, right into that arc of his,

:44:04.:44:08.

nice and full. You see here he stays very still, one simple movement,

:44:09.:44:12.

into his art and bang down the ground. 95 metres.

:44:13.:44:21.

Cut away, it will go away for four. The first Champions Trophy 104 Ben

:44:22.:44:31.

Stokes. What a place to do it, a packed Edgbaston, against the Auld

:44:32.:44:34.

enemy. Brilliant. Well played, Suber. -- super. Ben Stokes brings

:44:35.:44:42.

up his third one-day international 100. His looks in total control

:44:43.:44:51.

today. Every single Australia bowler, fast, spin or medium paced,

:44:52.:44:56.

very good innings. Controlled the pace exceptionally well, he and his

:44:57.:45:00.

captain, Eoin Morgan, set the pace early on and mode -- maintain the

:45:01.:45:03.

momentum right the way through this chase. Just as he goes to 100 the

:45:04.:45:11.

rain comes down yet again. It looks dark in the distance. England Way

:45:12.:45:20.

ahead on Duckworth-Lewis. STUDIO:

:45:21.:45:25.

After chasing 278, England got a 240-4 before the rain fell and

:45:26.:45:29.

bought up premature end to the game. They were well ahead of the

:45:30.:45:33.

Duckworth-Lewis Stern rule meaning England won by 40 runs. In truth

:45:34.:45:37.

they were coasting to victory anyway. After a very shaky start for

:45:38.:45:40.

England and another failure of the Jason Roy, the game turned on the

:45:41.:45:44.

fantastic partnership of Captain Eoin Morgan and Ben Stokes, who

:45:45.:45:49.

scored a masterful century, his third one-day international 100.

:45:50.:45:52.

Australia failed to capitalise on their start with Hazelwood the pick

:45:53.:45:57.

of the bowlers with two wickets. Ewan-macro Allen -- Eoin Morgan, if

:45:58.:46:08.

I can start with you. We found a formula, the guys performing, I'm

:46:09.:46:13.

very pleased. To lose to the Auld enemy and be knocked out in the same

:46:14.:46:17.

day as disappointing? Yes, it is, we didn't play our best game and we put

:46:18.:46:22.

ourselves in a poor position with the bat and kept losing wickets in

:46:23.:46:27.

clubs. We lost 5-15 at one point and you are up against a quality outfit

:46:28.:46:30.

like England, you are not going to win too many games when you do that.

:46:31.:46:33.

It was disappointing from that aspect. Reasons for the soft

:46:34.:46:38.

dismissals, not enough time in the middle for your team? I can't use

:46:39.:46:42.

that as an excuse. We've all played a lot of cricket. You have to come

:46:43.:46:46.

out and play on the big stage and today, we didn't do that. You have

:46:47.:46:49.

maybe Sri Lanka Pakistan in the next semifinal. Are you bothered about

:46:50.:46:54.

which side you play? I think either side. They will be tough to beat.

:46:55.:46:59.

This is a very tough competition. As was proved yesterday, in the New

:47:00.:47:04.

Zealand game, Bangladesh turning them over but you have to be at your

:47:05.:47:10.

best in this tournament. That's the way it falls. It's the high level of

:47:11.:47:15.

cricket that is required, so hopefully we can produce something

:47:16.:47:21.

near our best. Have you ever ever hit the ball better? Is going along

:47:22.:47:25.

nicely. It's probably the case now where I look back and I'm thinking

:47:26.:47:29.

the reason why it's going well is the training is getting more

:47:30.:47:34.

consistent. Also, having a bit more confidence going out to bat as well.

:47:35.:47:39.

With the guys around, I've batted with Morgan quite a lot now so he's

:47:40.:47:42.

an influence out there. Hopefully I can keep going forward. What were

:47:43.:47:49.

your thoughts at 35-3? Not a lot, really. We spoke about the weather

:47:50.:47:52.

conditions. There wasn't a lot of swing. We tried to play the ball on

:47:53.:47:57.

its merit. How good is it to play with Eoin Morgan, he's striking

:47:58.:48:01.

brilliantly? It's really good, when you have a guy playing as well as he

:48:02.:48:05.

is at the other end you have pupils to get yourself in and get the pace

:48:06.:48:08.

of the pitch, so hopefully he will keep firing and everyone can keep

:48:09.:48:12.

feeding off the confidence. The run-in between the wickets? We

:48:13.:48:21.

should mention that, should we? Physically, how are you leading into

:48:22.:48:25.

the semifinal? Physically good. My body feels in good nick. I haven't

:48:26.:48:28.

had problems with my knee, touch wood. Good luck in the semi. Cheers.

:48:29.:48:32.

STUDIO: England finish top of group a with a

:48:33.:48:36.

full six points and with that defeat Australia go out and it's Bangladesh

:48:37.:48:41.

who surprisingly qualify in second place. Congratulations to them, but

:48:42.:48:44.

it's England who looked like the team to beat, as we look forward to

:48:45.:48:47.

their semifinal next Wednesday. It's goodbye from a very wet Edgbaston.

:48:48.:49:04.
