First topic message reminder :

Yes, England expected to be unchanged. Long boundaries apparently, which will suit England's excellent running ability!

If there were a decent replacement in the wings, I think Rashid's place would be under severe threat. He's got figures of 7/403 from 69 overs in the World Cup so far, which is hardly illuminating stuff.

Correct. Once they've had 20 overs bowled the reserve day is off the menu.

Hopefully the rain doesn't spoil the day anyway. Looks OK at the moment , no ? I know how quickly the English weather can change : but at least they're not in Manchester Smile

Doesn't seem very fair from the sporting perspective, but I guess is logistically sensible.

England ahead of the rate and no wickets down, its unlikely that DLS will concern them!

50 off 10 overs. Perfect.

Aus were something like 27/3

Well the problem is you have to have a rule set in advance to cater for all possible sets of circumstances. Otherwise the choice to postpone would be too subjective and the umpires would be liable to accusations of favoring one side or the other whatever they did. As it is it's a simple choice : whether or not play is possible ; and once it isn't the decision is out of their hands.

Fortunately was an easy decision on Tuesday ...and resulted in a great match. Without D/L.

Fifty stand up in the tenth clap These two doing a job again...

Lyon on.

The perfect powerplay. Watchful and immaculate in defence; ruthless against the bad balls when they came. 90-10 at the start becomes 99-1 in England's favour.

It will take one of the greatest chokes or one of the greatest spells of ODI bowling to dislodge England from this position of strength.

6 off Lyons first ball. Thats as many as Aus got in 50 overs already from Roy. And twice what India got on this ground against England.

Think Aus will be praying for rain here and hoping its a 20 over game allowing them to scuttle off and hide sooner.

Get the feeling England are deliberately setting out to take Lyon to the cleaners straight away. Pre- set plan ?

Has some risk. But if they can hit him out of the attack it gives Finch one more problem . Not sure he altogether trusts Stoinis as his fifth bowler. Has Maxwell too , of course .

If Bairstow has to go off, I would promote Morgan ahead of Root. Root may be needed later.

Duty is the anti-Trebell. I'd actually be happier if we had the latter on hand for some balance ...hope he is back for the Ashes .

Now what's this ? Bairstow damaged himself ? Don't need this...Roy not looking too worried. And Jonny is up and moving : hopefully OK.

Surely KPF is England's reverse lucky charm these days. Remember Pakistan had a far better chance of the semi finals. England were only about the 11th best team here or something after a couple of games. They had about a 0.1% chance of winning today if losing the toss, and can't chase in World Cups (other than the games where they did which don't count). These gems seem to be fuelling a reaction

This is exactly how I wanted England to play this chase and how they should have played in chases against Sri Lanka. It's harder with Vince instead of Roy, but against Sri Lanka we weren't proactive enough and just tried to occupy, thinking if we bat 50 overs we'd win the game.

England 71-0 after 11.4 at better than a run a ball. RRR falls below 4 and all the pressure is on the Australia.

And England apparently can't handle the pressure of WC games, despite now being on course to win their third do-or-die game in a row. And none of those games have been close, this one doesn't look like being so either.

In fairness to Vince, he was/is out of his depth opening the batting but he has continued to front up even after wearing a lot of the blame for losses and shown tremendous commitment to this team. Even today, he was out in the field and took a good catch.

But against Sri Lanka , Roy wasn't playing and Jonny got Malinga'd for nothing... England really are a bit dependent on these two firing. Takes the pressure off the rest of the order.

Fortunately they usually do.

DLS pars after 20 overs chasing 223:

For no wicket - 56
For 1 wicket - 63
For 2 wickets - 73
For 3 wickets - 86
For 4 wickets - 103

England already have 89-0 from 14.3 overs, so if the next 5.3 overs go 4-14 Australia are right back in this one...

England on course. This has to be a mighty fine performance. Australia won a crucial toss. The pitch was quite sporting, asking some questions of the batsmen when they came and facing the new ball. By no means impossible to bat, but the Australian openers had no answers. Australia lost 3 for a bit more than India did yesterday, and its very tough to come back from such a position in a knockout WC game. Smith tried, but there was not much support for him apart from a brave Alex Carey and then Mitchell Starc down at numbr 9.
Australia needed early wickets to give themselves half a chance of defending 223, but the England openers were having none of it, they are gladly smacking it around, and are at a comfortable 90 without loss at better than a run-a-ball. Roy going like a runaway train, and Bairstow trying hard to keep up. Australian bowling appears to be rather clueless.

50 up for Roy at just better than a run a ball.

This board has already knighted Sir Chris Woakes, but if this goes on much longer do we need to make it Lord Roy of Edgbaston?

As KPF said, England should give Roy a solid run at the top in tests. He may not have batted much at the top in FC cricket, and the red new ball in England is a wonderful thing asking tough questions of the batsmen. But if Roy comes off in every 5 innings, that would be splendid for England, and can put them significantly ahead.

I suppose you can draw some comparisons between Jason Roy and Kevin Pietersen's introduction to test cricket in that beautiful summer of 2005.

This is a very one-sided semi-final. Australia are to Edgbaston what England are to Perth.

On comes Steven Smith, once Australia's great legspinning hope. 20 years ago, a not too mediocre Australian legspinner bowled a magical delivery to undo South Africa's fine start and eventually laied out the pathway to arguably the greatest World Cup game of all!

21 off the over !  Even with Maxwell brilliantly saving three...

Wonder what they'd have done if they had that short boundary Whistle

Worse than the worst over I ever bowled of my slow non-turning off-spin. Went for 20, and the only dot was a dropped caught and bowled Sad

This is getting hilarious.

Its spotting but they should get to 20 before the mercy rule is invoked

Apparently the last 6 Roy hit off Smith was the first ever to hit the top tier of the stand. Short boundaries???

Let's get to 20 overs and the rain can do what it likes - we're something like 80 ahead of the DLS score...
