Morgan lauds England's ODI revival after reaching Cricket World Cup final


England snuffed out Australia's title defence and stormed into the Cricket World Cup final with a comprehensive eight-wicket victory over the five-times champions in the second semi-final on Thursday.

It was built on a riotous opening seven overs, when Australia were reduced to 14-3 by the new-ball brilliance of Chris Woakes and Jofra Archer.

England, who last made the final in 1992 when they lost to Pakistan, will meet 2015 runners-up New Zealand on Sunday at Lord's where new champions will be crowned.

Did his job. That first ball four settled the nerves and when Roy started driving Starc as well I knew the game was over.

Roy crashed 85 before Joe Root and Eoin Morgan took England to their target with 17.5 overs to spare.

By contrast, Australian captain Aaron Finch did his best to put a fearless face on Australia's first-ever semi-final defeat after seven previous triumphs.

Jason Roy has avoided suspension, and only been slapped with a 30% fine of his match fees, for his animated outburst aimed at umpire Kumara Dharmasena after being given out - incorrectly - in the World Cup semi-final against Australia at Edgbaston on Thursday. A world-class player in David Warner is going to put that away.

He added: "Our advice to passengers is to check with their airline before travelling to the airport". One departure and 11 arrivals have been cancelled on Thursday, the airport has confirmed.

As it became clearer that England were strolling, the party moved through the gears.

While Australia lick their wounds before facing England in the Ashes next month, the progress of Morgan´s team comes after a four-year overhaul.

Starc was serenaded with the song that tortured Mitchell Johnson, and the Hollies Stand howled as Smith was launched for three consecutive sixes by Roy.

Peter Handscomb's (4) World Cup debut lasted just 12 balls as Woakes got the ball to shape back in and clatter into the batsman's middle stump - the No 4's lack of foot movement costing him.

They were quick and accurate and extracted the maximum possible movement out of the morning surface and although Steve Smith and Alex Carey were able to rebuild, Australia never truly recovered from that opening blitz.

"Chris Woakes and Jofra Archer bowled a hell of a spell".

"I think New Zealand throughout the whole tournament has been probably the hardest side to beat and the best side in the group stages", said Morgan. The in-form duo of Jason Roy and Jonny Bairstow started to take Aussie bowlers on from the word go.
