ICC Cricket World Cup Highlights in Pictures: Australia in semis after crushing England by 64 runs

Updated : 2019-06-26 08:23:56

Australia smothered top-ranked England by 64 runs at Lord's on Tuesday and ratcheted up the pressure on the home side to join the defending champion in the Cricket World Cup semifinals. First into the playoffs, the Australians successfully defended a total for the fourth consecutive match, making 285-7 stand tall by bowling out England for 221 with 5.2 overs to spare. Inspired recall Jason Behrendorff claimed a maiden 5-for while fellow left-arm seamer Mitchell Starc grabbed four to lead the tournament wickets list with 19. "You don't win the tournament if you don't reach the semis. That's the first bit ticked off," said Australia captain Aaron Finch, who led the effort with 100, his second century of this World Cup. England rose to the top of the one-day rankings thanks to fearless and imaginative chases, but fell to a third defeat in seven matches in its home World Cup, all three while chasing. Here are the highlights of the match:
