England reach Cricket World Cup final with thrashing of Australia

England surged into their first World Cup final for 27 years with a sensational eight-wicket demolition of Australia at Edgbaston. The hosts will have the chance to lift the trophy for the first time when they meet New Zealand at Lord’s on Sunday. A first win in a World Cup knockout match since 1992 was secured over the defending champions on a day that will live long in the memory, justifiably alongside anything from the 2005 Ashes or the 2010-11 tour of Australia.It was built on a riotous opening seven overs, when Australia were reduced to 14-3 by the new-ball brilliance of Chris Woakes and Jofra Archer. Steve Smith, so often England’s nemesis, held Australia together with 85, helping them to a total of 223 that at least gave them something to bowl at.
