Champions Trophy: Australia crash out, Bangladesh qualify for semis

And Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood went about their business early on.

"It seemed like there was a bit of a momentum shift after that rain delay", said Smith. And so powerful and clean was Stokes' hitting against Australia, it earned praise from Virat Kohli on Twitter. Their No. 4 batsman had faced 14 balls in the first two matches combined and batsmen lower than that had not faced a single ball until Travis Head walked out to the middle at Edgbaston against England on Saturday. It was carnage thereafter as both batsmen regaled the home fans with their strokeplay. "I see them as a good team at the moment", his measured assessment. "Their plans, the way they structure their innings, the way the bowlers are used".

"They're starting to take the way we played, not vice-versa".

Number six Mahmudullah and all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan made the highest partnership for any wicket in an ODI for the side when they put on 224 to take the match away from New Zealand but Bangladesh are resisting the temptation to tinker with their lineup.

They advanced after England knocked Australia out of the tournament.

Experience of playing in the IPL helped Ben Stokes compile the "best innings" of his ODI career to date, against Australia at Edgbaston.

Joe Root fell for 15 with Wade this time making no mistake behind the stumps from another good Hazlewood ball.

Eoin Morgan's attacking instincts proved the game-changer for England in their Champions Trophy rout of Australia, although the captain admits it was handy having the brilliant Ben Stokes at the other end too. The two provided the thrills, but the victory was set up by the bowling pair of Mark Wood and Adil Rashid.

Out of a possible 300 overs in three matches, Australia ended up playing 96 short. Right from the time he was introduced in the 18th over, Rashid cast a spell on the Aussie batting and bowled 28 dot balls as well. India emerged as the favorites, due to their superior run rate, to face Bangladesh as the victor of Sri Lanka-Pakistan would need an unlikely huge win to have any chance of meeting their continental rivals on Thursday.

Britain says no European Union exit deal unless future relationship taken into account
Sir John, who was crucial in bringing peace to Northern Ireland, raised concerns about the impact of a Tory deal with the DUP. May desperately needs the DUP's 10 seats to pass legislation.

"It's been disappointing to have not got a complete game in, but you can't make excuses like this". Hashim Amla and Kane Williamson were the scalps Wood claimed, indicating his knack of picking up big wickets.

Local media would even have you believe England's courageous playing style, which is pushed heavily by Morgan, has been highly influenced by the way fearless New Zealand skipper Brendon McCullum turned the Kiwis around. When they win a World Cup, then we can take the way they play.

Head took over, but Roy's brilliance did for Maxwell when he held a pull just inside the boundary marker, flicked the ball up as he went out of bounds and came back to complete the catch.

"My body's holding up really well", said the 27-year-old.

Durham quick Wood returned ODI best figures of four for 33 in his maximum 10 overs, while Rashid's haul of four for 41 was the Yorkshireman's best against a Test nation at this level.

Put into bat by Morgan, the Australians showed lot of intent with openers Warner, Finch and Smith scoring as a good rate. From a strong position of 136 for 1 in the 23rd over, they soon loosened the grip with a series of tame dismissals.

But having made 68, his best ODI score in over a year, Finch skyed a drive off Ben Stokes and Morgan, running back and across from short extra-cover held a hard catch.

It was a big blow because Finch (68 off 64 balls) was dominating the English bowling when he got out.
