England trounce Australia to reach Cricket World Cup final

11:28                                            Watch highlights as South Africa beat Australia by 10 runs in a thrilling final World Cup group game at Old Trafford

Cricket can be a game of some complexity and nuance but as England showed in their dismantling of Australia in Thursday's World Cup semi-final, it can also be a remarkably straightforward sport.

The problem for Roy was that England had already squandered their lone review of the innings with an unsuccessful attempt to overturn fellow opener Jonny Bairstow's lbw dismissal for 34.

Although Australia had beaten England easily in the group stage at Lord's, they were a shadow of the team that eased into the semi-finals with seven wins from nine matches.

"It sums up how far we have come in the last four years".

Although Smith ensured what the crowd knew could have been a tricky chase - they cheered as Roy defended Starc's first over - Roy injected belief with an outrageous flick for six off the left-armer.

"Looking back to where we were in 2015, it's a dramatic improvement". Everyone should take a huge amount of credit. "We want to make the most of the opportunity".

Man of the match Chris Woakes and Jofra Archer got England off to a flying start with the ball, taking three early wickets for just 14 runs.

Carey braved the blow to join Steve Smith in a dogged bid to arrest the free-fall and Australia reached the 100-mark in the 25th over before their middle order caved in.

The former captain posted his highest score of the tournament with 85, but only a gutsy Alex Carey (46) provided any real support in a 103-run fourth-wicket stand.

Steve Smith was later run out on 85 runs as Australia finished up below-par 223 runs.

Smith and Carey scored more than half their team's total and were among only four Australian batsmen who managed double-digit scores.

Mitchell Starc, who made 29 with the bat, dismissed Bairstow and Pat Cummins denied Roy his century but the match had slipped through Australia's fingers by then.

"Instead of freezing in their first World Cup semi-final since 1992 - so feeble have they been for a generation at the 50-over format - England played a virtually ideal game to eliminate the holders". "We felt like our preparation leading in to the tournament and then the momentum we'd built-up through the tournament was really important and we came here feeling good, we trained well, we had enough break in between games and guys were fresh enough, so very disappointing". "We have tried not to think about getting to the final, it hasn't sunk in yet", he said.
