Over 45. 8 runs. Bowler: Mitchell Starc. England: 10-221(rr 4.91)
44.4
W
OUT! Caught. Mitchell Starc to Adil Rashid. Length ball, outside off stump backing away driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to extra cover, by Stoinis. This time he hits it straight to extra cover and Starc wraps things up for Australia. The left-armers take nine wickets between them and they've ripped through England's batting lineup which has received so many plaudits lately. Australia become the first team to guarantee qualification for the knockout stages of the World Cup. For England that might seem some way off after back to back defeats. If Pakistan can beat New Zealand tomorrow then there will be some worried people in that England camp. Australia were too good for them today in all departments and deserve their victory. That's all from me here at Lord's, goodnight.

OUT! Caught. Jason Behrendorff to Chris Woakes. Slower length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, in the air uncontrolled to deep mid wicket, by Finch, by Maxwell. That's well struck but it's towards the long boundary. Maxwell is back there with his heels just inside the rope. He jumps, takes the catch and tosses the ball inside to Finch and that's the end of Woakes.

Runs : 0 Bowler: Chris Woakes Wickets : 1
47.1
W
OUT! Caught. Chris Woakes to Pat Cummins. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, outside edge in the air uncontrolled to first slip, by Buttler. Edged and well-taken by Buttler diving forwards and to his right. Cummins has not done as well with the bat this tournament as he would have liked. Woakes picks up another wicket as England continue to stifle the Australian middle order.

45.4
W
OUT! Caught. Chris Woakes to Steven Smith. Slower length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to mid on, by Archer. That was a very strange looking shot from Smith. It was another off pace delivery. Someone like Maxwell might have had the power to launch that ball into the stands. I think Smith was trying to hit the ball more over mid-wicket but he completely mis-timed his shot and offered Archer an easy catch coming in from long on. Another key wicket at a key time for England.
In over# 42
Runs : 1 Bowler: Adil Rashid Wickets : 1
41.5
W
OUT! Run Out. Adil Rashid to Steven Smith. Leg spinner half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to deep extra cover for 1 run, fielded by Bairstow, fielded by Rashid, by Buttler. Stoinis is run out, both Australian batsmen are at the same end and Buttler casually takes off the bails after Rashid throws him the ball. Smith had called initially for two but shouted no when he saw Bairstow get to the ball quickly. For some reason Stoinis didn't respond to the second call and came charging back towards Steve Smith leaving Rashid the simple task of throwing the ball down the other end.
In over# 39
Runs : 0 Bowler: Mark Wood Wickets : 1
38.2
W
OUT! Caught. Mark Wood to Glenn Maxwell. Short, outside off stump on the back foot Steer, bottom edge in the air uncontrolled to wicketkeeper, by Buttler. There's a feather on that and Maxwell is gone. This is turning out to be a good period for England with the two fast bowlers back into the attack. Maxwell was trying to run the ball over the top off the back foot and the ball brushed the bottom edge on its way through to Buttler.

SIX! Jofra Archer to Glenn Maxwell. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs. Smashed over the legside boundary and into the crowd. Maxwell saw a ball in his zone and held nothing back.
In over# 36
Runs : 0 Bowler: Jofra Archer Wickets : 1
35.3
W
OUT! Caught. Jofra Archer to Aaron Finch. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, top edge in the air uncontrolled to fine leg, by Woakes. This is going to be out. Immediately after going to three figures Finch has played a loose shot. He was taking the pull shot on but up it went towards Woakes who had just made a mess of the previous delivery. He makes no mistake this time taking a comfortable catch and Finch is furious with himself.
In over# 33
Runs : 0 Bowler: Ben Stokes Wickets : 1
32.2
W
OUT! Bowled. Ben Stokes to Usman Khawaja. Length ball, to leg on the front foot flick, missed to. Khawaja tries to whip the ball legside but it wasn't quite full enough. He ends up playing around the ball and it continues on its original path and crashes into middle and off stump. Stokes enjoyed that one. A few boos around Lord's, it must be Steve Smith on his way out to the middle.
In over# 25
Runs : 6 Bowler: Moeen Ali Wickets : 0
24.6
6
SIX! Moeen Ali to Aaron Finch. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, in the air under control over long on for 6 runs. Finch launches down the ground with no fear and clears the man at long on for a maximum.
In over# 23
Runs : 6 Bowler: Moeen Ali Wickets : 1
22.4
W
OUT! Caught. Moeen Ali to David Warner. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the back foot pushing, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to point, by Root. David Warner has got that all wrong and he's chipped the ball up to point where Root just about holds onto the catch on the run. Warner seemed surprised by the way the ball reacted off the pitch. Maybe it stuck in the pitch slightly but it didn't appear to mis-behave dramatically. Anyway it did for Warner and England pick up a much-needed wicket.
22.2
6
SIX! Moeen Ali to Aaron Finch. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot slog sweeping, in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs. In the slot for Finch and he swings the ball away over the mid-wicket boundary. It wasn't a million miles away from Bairstow out there but it went wide of him and safely over the ropes.

OUT! Caught. Mitchell Starc to Adil Rashid. Length ball, outside off stump backing away driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to extra cover, by Stoinis. This time he hits it straight to extra cover and Starc wraps things up for Australia. The left-armers take nine wickets between them and they've ripped through England's batting lineup which has received so many plaudits lately. Australia become the first team to guarantee qualification for the knockout stages of the World Cup. For England that might seem some way off after back to back defeats. If Pakistan can beat New Zealand tomorrow then there will be some worried people in that England camp. Australia were too good for them today in all departments and deserve their victory.

39.3
W
OUT! Caught. Jason Behrendorff to Moeen Ali. Length ball, outside off stump no foot movement pushing, outside edge in the air uncontrolled to wicketkeeper, by Carey. That's a great comeback from Behrendorff and Moeen is walking, he's nicked it and is on his way. Moeen's feet went nowhere this time, it was a good length ball and it took the outside edge and Carey did the rest.
In over# 37
Runs : 0 Bowler: Mitchell Starc Wickets : 1
36.6
W
OUT! Bowled. Mitchell Starc to Ben Stokes. In-swinging yorker, off stump on the front foot defending, missed to. What a delivery, that's world class from Mitchell Starc. We saw so much of that in the 2015 World Cup. That's pretty much the perfect yorker. It was right n the block hole, it was fast, it even tailed back in to the left-hander and it was too good for Stokes.
In over# 31

30.3
6
SIX! Glenn Maxwell to Ben Stokes. Off break length ball, middle stump on the front foot slog sweeping, in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs. And that's his second maximum, Stokes got just enough of that slog sweep to carry the short boundary.
30.1

SIX! Glenn Maxwell to Ben Stokes. Off break short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, in the air under control over deep square leg for 6 runs. Dragged down and pulled away for six by Stokes, his first maximum.
In over# 28
Runs : 0 Bowler: Marcus Stoinis Wickets : 1
27.2
W
OUT! Caught. Marcus Stoinis to Jos Buttler. Back of a length, outside off stump on the front foot pulling, in the air uncontrolled to deep square leg, by Khawaja. Cries of catch and Usman Khawaja does just that in the deep, keeping his feet just inside the boundary as he does so. That's a huge wicket for Australia, Buttler and Stokes was a dangerous partnership. England will struggle to chase this total from here.
In over# 14
Runs : 0 Bowler: Jason Behrendorff Wickets : 1
13.5
W
OUT! Caught. Jason Behrendorff to Jonny Bairstow. Short, to leg on the back foot pulling, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to deep mid wicket, by Cummins. That's going to be out, an easy catch for Cummins out there in the deep. Bairstow was trying to pull that ball from well outside off stump, it's a harder shot against the left-armer with the angle going across. That mistake has cost him and Australia have their fourth wicket.
In over# 6
Runs : 0 Bowler: Mitchell Starc Wickets : 1
5.5
W
OUT! Caught. Mitchell Starc to Eoin Morgan. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, top edge in the air uncontrolled to fine leg, by Cummins. The short ball does for Morgan. You did feel like it would be a tough test for him coming out so early against the Australian quicks. Starc went into the body and cramped the England captain as he tried to pull. The ball came off near the shoulder of the bat and went high in the air towards fine leg where Cummins pouched the catch Australian style. England are in all sorts of trouble now.
In over# 4
Runs : 0 Bowler: Mitchell Starc Wickets : 1
3.3
W
OUT! L.B.W. Mitchell Starc to Joe Root. In-swinging length ball, middle stump on the front foot driving, hit pad to. That's out, that's absolutely plumb and that's a massive wicket for Australia. Joe Root is gone and England are reeling at 15-2. Eoin Morgan comes out to face two quick bowlers with two new balls who are getting some real movement. It was full and quick fom Starc. Root looked on edge, he was beaten for pace a couple of balls ago and combined with the swing on that delivery he had no chance.

W
OUT! Bowled. Jason Behrendorff to James Vince. In-swinging length ball, middle stump on the front foot driving, hit pad to. What a start for Australia. Behrendorff bowls a peach of a delivery with just his second ball. The first ball just held its line with no real swing to speak of. This delivery swung and it swung late. Vince was looking to drive but could do nothing once the ball started veering back in towards middle stump. Perfect start for Australia, Joe Root comes out to the middle in the first over.
