Eoin Morgan said that New Zealand would be hard side to beat after England reached their first ICC World Cup final in 27 years. Woakes struck twice early on as Australia slumped to 14-3 after winning the toss in Birmingham but Steve Smith led the recovery for Australia with 85 and Alex Carey made 46. He scalped two back to back wickets to put the pressure back on Aaron Finch's men. Later, captain, Eoin Morgan, and Joe Root chipped in with 45 and 49-run unbeaten cameos to take England home in 32.1 overs with eight wickets in hand.
Then, chasing a lower than expected target of 224 to win, England's opening batsmen Jason Roy and Jonny Bairstow did exactly what was needed in such a situation they batted aggressively but sensibly to reach 50 without loss at the 10-over mark.
