Do tune into Sportskeeda for indepth analysis as the Champions Trophy moves into its business end. Also, don't forget to tune in for tomorrow's crucial and do-or-die encounter between India and South Africa at the Kennigton Oval in London. It has been a delight bringing the live commentary of the match. Here's me Sabyasachi Chowdhury signing off for today. Goodnight and Goodbye. Aidos Amigos
That ends the presentation ceremony for today's contest. England and Bangladesh qualify as the number one and two sides respectively from Group A. Australia would feel they missed out on their victory against Bangladesh to rain. However, they can't deny the fact that rain rescued them from a defeat against New Zealand. England will be oozing confidence going into the semis on the backs of three consecutive victories.  
Eoin Morgan says- "Reasonable job by the boys. Aussies were in a position of command and to come back from there feels good. Adil Rashid hasn't bowled recently in the last ten overs for and he has gained in confidence after bowling todayAdil Rashid bowled in the last ten overs, something he hasn't done in the last few games. He is growing in confidence and it is glad to see. It is hard work getting high quality batsmen out; Mark seems to have found some form". 
Steve Smith says- " Things haven't gone very well for us. We managed to find form, but probebly didn't play our best game. We lost five wickets for fifteen runs. You couldn't win too many games if you do that. Soft dismissals cost us the game. Morgan and Stokes played exceptionally well"
BEN STOKES is the Man of the Match for his awe-inspiring ton of 102 runs from 109 balls
Though rain have had its final say in the game, even without the rain Australia wouldn't have eluded a defeat. After they struggled to 277/9 in 50 over, England were clear favourites to win the game. However the Aussie bowlers had other ideas. Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood speared in thunderbolts to pick up a wicket each in their opening overs.

Joe Root looked ominous, but was dismissed by Hazlewood courtesy an outside edge to the slips. A small spell of rain halted play and afterwards it was all about England's dominance. Ben Stokes and Eoin Morgan took the sting out of the Aussie bowlers. Pacers and spinners were completely neutralised as their stand carried on with their dominance.

The only moment of joy for them after the rain delay was when Adam Zampa threw down the stumps to affect a run-out and pin down the Englsih skipper in Eoin Morgan. Australia finally got a full game, but couldn't capitalise on it as they crumbled during pivotal moments of a game.
