Australia out of Champions Trophy after comfortable England win

15 June 2017

For hosts England, the favourites going into the tournament in the eyes of many, their serene progress on home soil continues.

"We'll have to sit back and have a look at that, moving forward, what we do there", Lehmann said.

Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood started superbly with the new ball and by the end of the sixth over, England were three down. After a 40-minute delay Morgan, king of the counter-punch, crashed the first two balls after the restart from Starc for four through the covers, and soon Australia were on the back foot as the sun briefly shone and England's classy left-handers put their old foes to the sword.

Smith might regret giving Stokes some advice during the IPL about his technique, given that the Englishman's century helped eliminate the Australians from the Champions Trophy.

Stokes than continued the chase with Jos Buttler (29 n o, 32b, 3×4, 1×6) before rain again interrupted play at 240/4 in 40.2 overs.

London fire: 12 dead, 74 injured in massive fire at Grenfell Tower
Up to 250 firefighters, backed by 40 fire engines, fought for hours to try to bring the Grenfell Tower block blaze under control. It comes as Boris Johnson, former Mayor of London, was reminded of his comments when confronted about fire services cuts .

It wasn't Australia's day and England deserved to win as they played the better cricket on Saturday.

But that was as good as it got for the bowlers as England cantered to victory.

Morgan's England are renowned for staying on the attack even in adversity. Shakib played aggressive cricket during his 115-ball 114 with 11 fours and a six, adding a massive 224 runs for the fifth wicket with Mahmudullah.

England all-rounder Ben Stokes is now the best player in the world, says former spinner Graeme Swann.

Both reached 50 in what appeared to be no time, with Stokes in particular reaching his off 39 balls - yet when he consider the fact that 20 of those were dots, he accumulated 52 runs off just 19 deliveries. The fielding was also not up to the mark and the fact they spilled a couple of catches added insult to injury.

A woman can be heard screaming for help in shocking footage she broadcast while trapped on one of Grenfell Tower's top floors. There was no immediate word on the cause, but angry residents said they had repeatedly warned about a potential fire threat.

Bangladesh rode on superb efforts with the bat by Shakib Al-Hasan and Mahmudullah to beat New Zealand in their second game in Group A and book a semi-finals berth. It was largely caused by Rashid's brilliance as the England leg-spinner varied his pace superbly and churned out plenty of googlies to dent the Aussie innings.

At 136-2, Moises Henriques joined Smith and the duo brought up the 150 in 25.3 overs. And then we went back to him at the end with two of the hardest overs to bowl. "But the fact that the bowlers managed to restrict Australia to under 300 - when at one stage it looked as if they might score 340 - was credit to how we bowled, for Woody and Rash to get four wickets each on that wicket with that boundary". Still more remarkable is that such breath-taking feats in the field are becoming routine in the modern game. Hashim Amla and Kane Williamson were the scalps Wood claimed, indicating his knack of picking up big wickets. That was followed by a monstrous 258 from 198 balls against South Africa in Cape Town in early 2016 - the fastest England double hundred in history, and second of all time.

The tourists were asked to bat first, and they made a solid start: openers David Warner (21) and Aaron Finch (68) reached 40 without loss quite comfortably, before the risky Warner edged a Mark Wood delivery into the gloves of Jos Buttler behind the stumps.

There have been some dark days since then: They went almost five years (May 1999-March 2004) without a victory in one-day cricket, a run that took in 45 losses and two no results because of washouts.

She left with all six of them. "We could do nothing and we could see the stuff on the side was falling off, collapsing". A massive fire raced through the building early Wednesday, emergency officials said. "It was really frightening".
