Australia 'outplayed' by England in World Cup semi, says Finch

Eoin Morgan lauded England's remarkable ODI revival after his side reached the Cricket World Cup final four years after a humiliating group-stage exit.

Cricket can be a game of some complexity and nuance but as England showed in their dismantling of Australia in Thursday's World Cup semi-final, it can also be a remarkably straightforward sport.

Earlier, batting first, Australia found themselves in deep trouble as an excellent spell of bowling by Chris Woakes and Jofra Archer made life hard for batsmen.

The hosts will have the chance to lift the trophy for the first time when they meet New Zealand at Lord's on Sunday.

Did his job. That first ball four settled the nerves and when Roy started driving Starc as well I knew the game was over.

Bairstow had already been dismissed by then for 34, leaving Eoin Morgan (45) and Joe Root (49) to see England home.

"Once we got off to a start we were able to put more pressure on them and then felt always ahead in the game", he said.

The English crowds took their treatment of Steve Smith to new levels on Thursday as the Aussies were humiliated in their semi-final clash.

As it became clearer that England were strolling, the party moved through the gears.

This was a complete display by England, who were magnificent with the ball, sharp in the field and dominant with the bat.

Starc was serenaded with the song that tortured Mitchell Johnson, and the Hollies Stand howled as Smith was launched for three consecutive sixes by Roy. Jofra Archer got the big scalp of and Chris Woakes sent back risky David Warner and young Peter Handscomb to reduce Australia to 14/3.

They were quick and accurate and extracted the maximum possible movement out of the morning surface and although Steve Smith and Alex Carey were able to rebuild, Australia never truly recovered from that opening blitz.

Smith remained through it all, only to be run out by wicketkeeper Jos Buttler's direct hit that somehow went between the batsman's legs - an action symptomatic of a day when everything went right for England.

Woakes (3-20) and Archer (2-32) nipped the new ball around on a full length.

Starc claimed his record breakthrough when he had Jonny Bairstow lbw, taking him past McGrath's mark from his farewell 2007 tournament.

"Having beaten India in the group stages here we would've come here with similar confidence".
