Preview: ICC Cricket Word Cup semi final – England v Australia

Australia v England

Tune in for the England’s innings in this crucial ICC World Cup semi final.
After Australia posted a very doable 223 all out, England will fancy their chances of securing a date against New Zealand on Sunday at Lords.
Take nothing for granted, though. Australia recovered from a dreadful start and they have a bowling attack that is guaranteed to cause problems.

If England leave their game face in the dressing room, the Aussies are well capable of defending 223. There are no second chances at this stage of the tournament – India will testify to that.

Steve Smith’s 85 could prove crucial for Australia and for England fans of a nervous disposition the remainder of this afternoon will either be one of celebration or a hideous experience of nail-biting and stress.
