The Aussies are facing the wrath of the English bowlers recreating a similar picture of Indian batsmen against New Zealand yesterday.

England have reached their first Cricket World Cup final in 27 years by trouncing defending champions Australia by eight wickets, ensuring there will be a first-time victor of the sports biggest prize following the clash against New Zealand on Sunday.

England opener Jason Roy smashed three sixes in a row in his 85 off 65 balls, helping England reach its target in just 32.1 overs.

As does England's weakness against left-arm pace bowling - and Australia have two of them in Mitchell Starc, the tournament's leading wicket-taker, and Jason Behrendorff. Their top batting duo - David Warner and Steve Smith - were serving a ban for cheating and the team seemed to be in complete disarray.

The loss of England's opener did little to stop their charge towards to the final, as Root (49no) and captain Morgan (45no) clinched victory with a mammoth 107 balls spare. When guys present the seam as well as Woakes and Archer do you expect the ball to move off the seam.

"If you told me after the last World Cup that we'd reach the final I wouldn't have believed you", the captain told the BBC's Test Match Special.

Although Smith had looked nervy at the starts of his innings, making just seven off his first 34 balls, the No.3 brought up a 72-ball fifty - met by more boos than cheers from the partisan crowd.
