    2.4 Nasty, prancing delivery and Warner has been bounced out. Woakes wheels away in celebration. England could not have asked for a better start to the semi-final. Back of a length and slanting away outside off from over the wicket, explodes from the deck, seams away further. Warner is squared up. He fends at it and tickles it to second slip where YJB grabs a sharp chance in front of his face 10/2
    1.1 Ooooooh, Finch has been given out lbw by umpire Dharmasena. Finch reckons he has snicked it? Finch has a word with Warner and challenges the on-field out decision. Archer begins with a full inswinger, Finch is very vulnerable to it, particularly early in his innings. Starts outside off and nips back in towards middle, Finch gets too far across, plays around his front pad, much like how Kohli did yesterday v Boult, and is struck on the flap of the front pad. This is cannoning into middle stump. The tracker returns three reads and off you go for a golden duck in the semi-final, Finch 4/1
    47.1 slower ball on middle, 116ks, Smith is early into the pull and is fooled by the lack of pace. Deflected off the body behind the stumps. Smith and Starc chance a leg bye. Buttler takes his right glove off, swoops down on the ball, and nails a direct hit at the non-striker's end to catch Smith short. England needed some brilliance to end Smith's innings 217/8
    6.1 The nip-backer from Woakes, bursting through the defences of Handscomb. Nice and full, bends back in towards middle, Handscomb has a loose drive at it, sitting back and leaving enough bat-pad gap for the ball to zip through and rattle the furniture. Australia three down for 14 inside seven overs 14/3
    27.2 skips down, flicked leg side... but too well! Picks out deep midwicket on the fence! That's the partnership broken, and it came from a lapse rather than any great delivery, just a wander down the pitch and chipping to the fielder! A shot without due Carey attention and England have their fourth 117/4
    27.6 googly, hit on the knee roll... GIVEN! Australia have no reviews! Was it high? The ball actually hit the thigh pad, skidding on inside a woolly waft from Stoinis, and after an age Dharmasena's finger went up! Smith gives a look of anguish at the non-striker's end as Stoinis heads off. Might well have been umpire's call - but what a call that was! 118/5
    34.5 Spliced into the lap of short cover. Slower variation from Archer, he rolls his fingers across it, kicks up from a length and tricks Maxwell into lobbing it to Morgan. Archer was brought back for this and he delivers. Okay, replays suggest it was the knuckle ball from Archer 157/6
    37.4 Grabbed at first slip. Joe Root goes low hangs onto the fast-travelling ball to leave Australia seven down and sinking. Flighted and drifts in just outside off and turns away. Cummins has a crack at it and snicks it behind. Wicket no. 3 for Rashid, in his last over 166/7
    47.2 Two in two for England. Both set batsmen gone. Why didn't Morgan go to him earlier? Seam-up, hits a hard length outside off. Starc has an almighty swish at it... and simply feathers it behind to Buttler 217/9
    48.6 sizzing yorker from Wood. 146ks, bursts under Behrendoff's bat and pings the off stump. Wood pumps his fist and wraps up Australia for 223 223/10

    19.4 Has Roy been bounced out? Umpire Dharmasena raises his finger. Lifter at the arm-pit of Roy, heading down the leg side, Roy aims a pull, but it's miles away from his reach. Good grab from Carey - injured jaw and all - but the question is was there bat on this? Replays suggest Roy did not touch it. England have lost their review and Roy has to go. He's seething, but umpire Erasmus chats with him and sends him off. He throws his gloves in the change room 147/2
    17.2 Starc provides Australia with the breakthrough. It looks plumb, but Bairstow calls for a review. Full inswinger from over the wicket, Bairstow plays around it and is pinned on the back leg in line with middle. This is cannoning into middle and there's a tiny opening for Australia 124/1
