England draw first blood in World Cup semi against Australia

Root was an early victim of Mitchell Starc when England lost to Australia at Lord's

England, whose ability to chase under pressure was called into question by group-stage losses to Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Australia, were unchanged from the side that routed New Zealand by 119 runs in their final group match at Chester-le-Street on July 3. The defending champions had got the better of the host when they met each other in the league stage of the tournament.

"Australia are a great team", he said.

He has chipped in with useful contributions with both bat and ball when the chips were down to lead England to the glory.

"Being involved in England squads of the past I never expected to win a World Cup", pace bowler Liam Plunkett said.

The 28-year-old right-handed batsman is expected to open the innings with the unsafe Jonny Bairstow in the crucial semi-final as he was seen engaged in a light training session at Edgbaston.

That is part of a 6-2 winning record overall in World Cups, although the teams are level at one apiece in semi-finals ahead of this one, Australia triumphing in 1975 before England earned their revenge four years later.

They also have confidence after Jason Roy and Jonny Bairstow hit 123 for the first wicket against New Zealand last Tuesday, denying left-arm quick Boult.

"I think we are probably more confident than we were three games ago - a different team".

Stokes admitted that Thursday's game at Edgbaston was the biggest of his career and the semi-final against Australia a shot at "redemption" for a team blown away by Mitchell Starc at Lord's almost two weeks ago.

"I don't think it is impossible to play with a smile on your face".

For the cricket fans in India, the match will be broadcast on the Star Sports network (Television) and Hotstar which is available for free on Android and iOS mobiles to watch live streaming anywhere. England lost to Australia exhaustively in their group match at the Lord's.

"I reckon England can win well, we are the stronger side when you look at the two teams, as simple as that".

Australia, who have not won in any format at Edgbaston since the 2001 Ashes Test, suffered a surprise 10-run defeat by South Africa at Old Trafford in their final group game.

"They've obviously got a good game plan and a lot of very talented cricketers", Langer said.

"There was a point against New Zealand when we got held back in the middle overs and we thought we could have made 370".

The Aussies knocked off the Poms by 64 runs when Starc and Behrendorf put on a clinic of speed and swing a couple of weeks ago but much has changed since. "It feels like we're back to the team we are". Yet the former captain carried on unperturbed, underpinning the innings with his best score of this World Cup until he was run out by wicketkeeper Jos Buttler at the non-striker's end as he tried to pinch a single with 18 balls left.
