HIGHLIGHTS

  • 22:43 (IST)

    Back to back defeats for England and the semi-final spot is looking increasingly distant for the hosts. Clinical performance from Australia. Behrendorff and Starc were brilliant upfont, while Cummins too complemented them beautifully. The two new ball bowlers shared nine wickets between them and Australia with this 64-run win have sealed their spot in the semi-finals. 

  • 22:36 (IST)

    Rashid gets into the act. Goes after Starc and collects two boundaries on the bounce.  But that is all the fun he is going to have. Fuller outside off, Rashid looks for a repeat of the previous four, doesn't get all of it and ends up spooning a simple catch to cover as Australia become the first side to qualify for semis. Behrendorff finishes with 5/44, Starc takes 4/43 to bowl England out for 221 and win the match by 64 runs.

  • 22:30 (IST)

    Five wickets for Behrendorff. He has been exceptional today. Has complemented Starc brilliantly. Archer gets the big levers out to a full ball, doesn't get the elevation required and Warner at long off completes a simple catch. Nine down and England are all but done here. 

  • 22:20 (IST)

    Behrendorff from the other end continues the good work and gets his fourth wicket. But this is more Maxwell's wicket than the bowler's. Slower ball, Woakes gets down on one knee but doesn't get all of it. Looks like the ball will have enough legs but Maxwell at deep midwicket anticipates well, jumps, pouches the catch, and on realising the moment will take him over, pops it to Finch who completes the catch gleefully. Wonderful work. England slide further now, are on 207/8 after 42 overs.

  • 22:08 (IST)

    OUT: Behrendorff's struck and England are crumbling here under pressure. Ali caught behind by Carey as England lose their seventh. 

  • 21:54 (IST)

    OUT: Starc has struck and what an important wicket! Starc has bowled a brilliant yorker to knock over Stokes. England are 6 down and staring at defeat.

  • 21:52 (IST)

    Four! After Stokes' couple of boundaries, Woakes has hammered him for a third boundary on the last ball of the over to make it a 13-run over. England are 173/5 from 36 overs.

  • 21:47 (IST)

    Four and Four! Stokes is taking the charge now and he has crashed Cummins through the offside into the short boundaries for two boundaries. He's leading the counter-attack for his side.

  • 21:26 (IST)

    SIX and SIX! After another good over from Stoinis where he conceded just the one run, Maxwell's taking a beating as Ben Stokes has picked his spot and smashed him into the crowd of back to back deliveries. 

  • 21:13 (IST)

    OUT: Australia have fielded brilliantly today and Khawaja gives another exhibit with a fantastic catch at the boundary to dismiss Jos Buttler of Stoinis' bowling. England have lost half their side now.

  • 21:04 (IST)

    50! Stoinis back with the ball Stokes has tucked it away for a single to bring up yet another half-century!

22:20 (IST)

Wonderful work. England slide further now, are on 207/8 after 42 overs.

22:14 (IST)

Nathan Lyon back into the attack now. Rashid and Woakes will want to go after him. Rashid skips down the ground and thumps him over long on's head for a massive six. England still not giving just yet. Three more singles makes it nine for the over. Just about what the hosts need at the moment.

22:12 (IST)

Just the over that the doctor ordered for Australia. Behrendorff goes for seven runs, but has taken an important wicket to further peg the English back. England are 191/7 after 40 overs.

22:08 (IST)

OUT: Behrendorff's struck and England are crumbling here under pressure. Ali caught behind by Carey as England lose their seventh. 

22:04 (IST)

Starc has been absolutely brilliant with the ball, unplayable at times too, and has been on the money yet agan in this over which is his seventh. One run and a bunch of dots to the new man Moeen Ali. England are 184/6 after 39 overs.

22:01 (IST)

Cummins from the other end looking to attack the new man, but both Moeen and Woakes work him around with relative ease to pick up six runs from that over. England are 183/6 after 38 overs. 

21:54 (IST)

OUT: Starc has struck and what an important wicket! Starc has bowled a brilliant yorker to knock over Stokes. England are 6 down and staring at defeat.

21:52 (IST)

Four! After Stokes' couple of boundaries, Woakes has hammered him for a third boundary on the last ball of the over to make it a 13-run over. England are 173/5 from 36 overs.

21:47 (IST)

Four and Four! Stokes is taking the charge now and he has crashed Cummins through the offside into the short boundaries for two boundaries. He's leading the counter-attack for his side.

21:46 (IST)

Lyon hustles through with his 8th over the innings and he's conceded only four singles as England move to 160/5 after 135 overs.

21:42 (IST)

Sloppy fielding for once by the Australians at mid-on means Stokes gets a boundary, that's the second in the over after Woakes cracked one earlier. Nine runs totally from that over takes England to 156/5 after 34 overs and keeps them in the hunt. 

21:39 (IST)
Superb shot from Woakes!
21:39 (IST)
What a beautiful shot!
21:38 (IST)

Stokes looking to take Lyon on too initially like he did with Maxwell but quickly realised it is not the best idea and changed his ways. Lyon kept him quiet and conceded just two runs. England are 147/5 after 33 overs.

21:35 (IST)

England continue to deal in singles here in the chase, they can't really take the bowlers on as they've lost wickets too. Stokes and Woakes biding their time and make Stoinis' seventh over a four run one. England have moved onto 145/5 after 32 overs.

21:27 (IST)

Maxwell will be pleased that he has not been smashed more in that over by Stokes after the two sixes to start with. England are 141/5 after 31 overs. 

21:26 (IST)

SIX and SIX! After another good over from Stoinis where he conceded just the one run, Maxwell's taking a beating as Ben Stokes has picked his spot and smashed him into the crowd of back to back deliveries. 

21:21 (IST)

Glenn Maxwell introduced into the attack now with Chris Woakes and Stokes in the middle. He's kept it economical and conceded just the three runs as England move onto 128/5 after 29 overs.

21:18 (IST)

Great over for Australia as they are now another step closer to the semi-final berth after Stoinis dismissed Buttler. England managed only three runs but it's the loss of the fifth wicket that will worry them a little bit more. England are 125/5 after 28 overs.

21:15 (IST)
They know how it is to win a World Cup here!
21:13 (IST)

OUT: Australia have fielded brilliantly today and Khawaja gives another exhibit with a fantastic catch at the boundary to dismiss Jos Buttler of Stoinis' bowling. England have lost half their side now.

21:12 (IST)

Good over from Lyon but the duo of Stokes and Buttler work him around easily to make that a five run over. England have clawed their way back into this chase thanks to these two batsmen, and the longer they bat the tougher it is for Australia. England aer 122/4 after 27  overs.

21:06 (IST)

Buttler finishes that over with a cracking shot to long on for a boundary. That was absolutely smashed by him to end what's been an 8 run over from Stoinis. England are 117/4 after 26 overs. 

21:04 (IST)

50! Stoinis back with the ball Stokes has tucked it away for a single to bring up yet another half-century! 

21:02 (IST)

Once again, five dots in the Lyon over, though Stokes did start things off with a boundary before that. England are slowly making progress with the score at 109/4 after 25 overs.

21:00 (IST)

Australia have done well make sure the English batsmen don't get away and have to play out dots every over. Yet another over with three dots and three singles for the duo of Stokes and Buttler. England move onto 105/4 after 24 overs.

20:55 (IST)
Can England pull this off?

England vs Australia, ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 Match at Lord's - Highlights: As it Happened

Follow all the live score and latest updates from the 2019 World Cup game between England (ENG) and Australia (AUS):  Rashid gets into the act. Goes after Starc and collects two boundaries on the bounce. But that is all the fun he is going to have. Fuller outside off, Rashid looks for a repeat of the previous four, doesn't get all of it and ends up spooning a simple catch to cover as Australia become the first side to qualify for semis. Behrendorff finishes with 5/44, Starc takes 4/43 to bowl England out for 221 and win the match by 64 runs.

England vs Australia in the ICC World Cup 2019 on June 25 (Tuesday) will be broadcast on the Star Sports network and Live streaming will be available on Hotstar. The match will be played in London and will begin at 1500 HRS IST. You can also follow all the action on our live blog (ENG vs AUS).

Hosts England have made life hard for themselves in the ICC World Cup 2019 after two uncharacteristic losses to Asian sides Pakistan and Sri Lanka. The No. 1-ranked ODI side in the world are now in danger of an early exit if they don’t win at least two of their remaining three games, starting with the match against traditional rivals Australia at the Lord’s on Tuesday (June 25).

England’s three remaining games are against Australia, New Zealand and India — three sides they have not beaten in the World Cup in the last 27 years. Eoin Morgan’s side though won’t care much about that stat because they would know that this English ODI side is a refreshing change from the one which has been struggling for the last two decades.

That doesn’t mean the task would be any easy against the defending World champions Australia, who have been on a roll after losing the three-match ODI series to India at home. The return of David Warner and Steve Smith from their one-year ban for ball-tampering has only boosted the strength of the Australians.

Warner, in fact, is the leading run-scorer for Australia so far with 447 runs in six games with two centuries and two fifties. The only blemish on their perfect record so far was the loss at the hands of India.

Since their early exit from the 2015 World Cup, England have risen to the top of the world rankings in ODI and twice posted massive totals in excess of 400 — including 481/6 against Australia. Even in this World Cup, the English batsmen have helped their side cross the 300-run mark regularly but it was a surprise for them not to overhaul a 232-run target against Sri Lanka at Headingley.

Opener Jason Roy and his aggressive strokeplay was missed at the top of the order and he’s unlikely to be available against Australia as well. The 28-year-old is expected to get a second scan done on Monday (June 24) to check on his recovery progress. James Vince, his replacement, has struggled in his two outings so far with scores of 26 and 14.

Much will depend on the tried and tested Jonny Bairstow, Joe Root, Eoin Morgan and Jos Buttler to help the Englishmen pile on a massive total to put the game beyond Australia. England’s pace battery led by Jofra Archer (15 wickets) and Mark Wood (12 wickets) have been impressive but Australia can count on Mitchell Starc (15 wickets) and Pat Cummins (11 wickets) to fight fire with fire.

For the time being, cricket fans in London, can look forward to a sneak peek at the Ashes before the real deal later this year.
