England in final!!!

Now, the fight for the title is between England and New Zealand

The defending champs are knocked out

England defeated Australia by eight wickets to enter the final of Cricket World Cup 2019 at Edgbaston on Thursday and will face New Zealand on July 14 at Lord's. 

Australia captain Aaron Finch's decision to bat appeared to backfire with Chris Woakes and Jofra Archer blowing away the Australian top order. 

The pacers kept Australia on the back foot as the defending champion were all-out for 223 runs. 

Chasing the modest total, England went all guns blazing as they got a flying start by fearless batting by both the openers Jason Roy and Jonny Bairstow. 

Eoin Morgan hit the winning runs and sent his team into the final. 

England have reached the final for the first time after 1992 World Cup and are chasing their maiden title.

Toss:

Australia have won the toss and opted to bat first against England. The defending champions were forced into making one change to their team with Peter Handscomb replacing Usman Khawaja who has been ruled out of the tournament with a hamstring injury.

Former captain Steve Smith will move up to number three, Finch said.

"We're going to bat. It looks like a good wicket and won't change too much so hopefully we can put a big score on the board," he added.

England retained the same side who beat New Zealand in their last group match.

The hosts' captain Eoin Morgan admitted he would have preferred to bat first.

"The trend in the tournament is to bat first. We are not really bothered, before the World Cup we preferred to chase. Whoever plays the best cricket will go through," he said.

"We have had highs and lows in the tournament but in the past two games we have gone from strength to strength."

Playing XI: 

England: Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow, Joe Root, Eoin Morgan(c), Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler(w), Chris Woakes, Liam Plunkett, Jofra Archer, Adil Rashid, Mark Wood

Australia: David Warner, Aaron Finch(c), Steven Smith, Peter Handscomb, Marcus Stoinis, Glenn Maxwell, Alex Carey(w), Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Jason Behrendorff, Nathan Lyon
