England dismiss Australia for 223 in World Cup semi-final

Going into Sunday night's (NZ time) World Cup final against England, the Black Caps boast top-ranking numbers in the 50-over format at the famed London venue.

If you haven't been following all the action so far, don't worry! "You need to enjoy the occasion to win games like this".

England had also beaten India in the league stage here at Edgbaston and Morgan said his team took confidence out of that win.

Australia had won the toss and opted to bat first.

That included a world-record score of 481/6 at Trent Bridge in a record defeat for the Australians against their oldest rivals.

But they're certainly not unbeatable!

Will the ground make a difference?

Smith, who bowled a single over that cost 21 runs, was booed by a large crowd, a reflection of the former Australia captain's role in a ball-tampering scandal in South Africa that saw him banned for 12 months.

The game maker has recently announced the launch of its Beta service of the game that optimized for running on low-end computers. Once this is done, all the free skins and options that are a part of this offer becomes immediately available for you.

And, given each team's relative strengths and weaknesses, and their preferences for certain conditions, South Africa's final hurrah, beating Australia, ensured that India were pitted against New Zealand at a low-scoring venue, one in which the team batting first won six times out of six in this World Cup.

How many people will be watching?

"But yeah two quality sides (England and Australia) are going to play tomorrow (second semi-final)".

As of Wednesday afternoon, there were still tickets available on the ICC website, with the International Cricket Council telling fans with unwanted tickets to resell them on their official site. "Just couldn't find it because they played exceptionally well", said Finch. The Kiwi bowlers rattled the top-order of India.

Satellite subscription host broadcaster Sky has said it will allow the final to be shown on free-to-air television in Britain - but only if England are involved in the showpiece match.

Writing Australia off from any major competition is always a unsafe game and in true Aussie fashion they have proved to be one of the most consistent teams in the competition. "But plenty of positives for us in this World Cup especially given where we were previous year when we came here in England". We always try to get (the opposition) two or three down in the first 10 overs. "For a while getting through to this stage looked unlikely, or was called into question, and I think that makes it more exciting for us".

What will the winners receive?

Sharma, the Cricket World Cup's top run-scorer with 648, edged Matt Henry behind off the fourth ball of his innings. England were off to a great start in their chase of Australia's 223 at Edgbaston, BirminghamJason Roy and Jonny Bairstow countered the early lively spells from Mitchell Starc and Jason Behrendorff without too much trouble. Compare that to the FIFA World Cup, which weighs six kilograms and is 37cms tall! We've had backs to the wall.
