So, let us hope for a cracking final at the Home of Cricket, Lord's on July 14th, Sunday. Till then, it is a warm goodbye from Sportskeeda
So, with England reaching the final, the World Cup would see a first time winner for the first time since the last 23 years. Even though England will enter the final as a huge favorite , New Zealand will be no pushovers just like they were against India in the first semi-final. No matter which team wins, the triumph will have a huge influence on the kids and teens. 
Earlier in the day, England's bowling attack put on an all-round performance and restricted Australia to an underpar 223 after 50 overs. Only Steven Smith with his 85 and Alex Carey stood up for Australia.  Just when Australia looked like they had a chance of reaching 250, Smith and Mitchell Starc who came up with a handy 29-run knock fell in a matter of few balls and England managed to bundle out their arch-rivals for a total of 223.
A target of 224 was never going to be enough against this English batting line up but it has to be said that the four batsmen that took to the middle today put on a clinic. Jason Roy and Jonny Bairstow put on a terrific 124 run opening stand and that partnership put the game away from Australia completely. Even though, Roy and Bairstow fell in quick succession, skipper Eoin Morgan and Joe Root continued from where the previous two batsmen left. 

Australia were ill-disciplined and lacked penetration right from the word go. They were too many bad balls especially from the team's trump card Mitchell Starc and that came back to haunt against a relentless England batting line up. 

So, in the end, England's batting excellence coupled with some poor bowling from Australia ensured that the home team reached the final with a 8-wicket win.
England advance to the World Cup finals!
Morgan swats a short delivery over mid-on and brings up the winning runs for England. The crowd is elated and the pyrotechnics start. Its a carnival atmosphere at Edgbaston as England coast towards the grand final on July 14th, Sunday with a smashing 8-wicket win

Delightful cut from Joe Root
From Jason Roy to Joe Root, each of the English batsmen has batted like a dream. Here, Root played a gorgeous square cut and found the tiniest gap between a packed off-side ring

England just need to get 13 runs to reach their first World Cup final after 27 years. This would be a remarkable achievement considering where they were during the 2015 World Cup.

Joe Root gets funky
Root takes a leaf out of Morgan's book to play a reverse sweep off Lyon. Struck sweetly and there is no doubt about the ball reaching the boundary

29.4 Nathan Lyon to Eoin Morgan. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, to point for 1 run, mis-fielded by Behrendorff, fielded by Warner.
Morgan's 7 four!
Morgan is just dealing in boundaries and this latest one is a carbon copy of the four he hit against Lyon in the previous over. Rocks back and smashes it to the left of the fielder at sweeper cover yet again
