Australia proved too strong for hosts England in the 32nd match of the ICC World Cup 2019 as they won by 64 runs. The Men in Yellow posted a competitive score of 285 runs after England captain Eoin Morgan won the toss and decided to bowl first. Thus, Australia has become the first side to qualify for the semifinal of the tournament.

Australian openers, Aaron Finch and David Warner once again provided a great start to their team as they added 123 runs for the opening partnership. In fact, Finch and Warner were troubled by England bowlers in the initial phase of the innings.

However, both the batsmen were able to hang on to the difficult phase. Subsequently, both the batters played their shot after getting settled and scored runs at will. Furthermore, they completed their fifth consecutive fifty run partnership and became the first pair in World Cup history to do so.

But Warner could not judge the steep bounce from Moeen Ali and gave a simple catch to Joe Root at the point region. However, Aaron Finch continued his good form going as he completed his second hundred of the tournament. Finch was dismissed on the next ball after reaching his milestone when he could not control his pull shot.

Australia once again could not add the finishing touches but got to a fighting score of 285 runs. On the other hand, England got off to a worse possible start as they lost four wickets early. The hosts were tottering at 53-4 after Mitchell Starc and Jason Behrendorff broke the top order spine.

Ben Stokes gave a ray of hope to England with his well-made knock of 89 runs. But England was always catching up in the chase after early blow. Stokes resistance was put paid by a brilliant yorker from Mitchell Starc. Jason Behrendorff scalped a five-wicket haul.
