England the 'benchmark' in one-day cricket, says Australia's Justin Langer

In a thrilling match under lights in Manchester that ended the five-week group stage, Australia fell to a last-over, 10-run loss to South Africa and slipped off the top of the World Cup standings.

While Usman Khawaja (hamstring) has already been ruled out of the tournament, Australia has not lodged paperwork to officially replace either him or Stoinis in the 15-man squad.

"I've played so many World Cup semi-finals and finals in the backyard with my mates and you're trying to be different guys. Davey Warner made a magnificent hundred and Alex Carey played a brilliant knock to get us close, but it was not quite good enough", Australia captain Aaron Finch said.

"Pete Handscomb a few months ago helped us beat India 3-2 in India in their conditions and then 5-0 against Pakistan in the UAE".

Langer labelled himself as "a bit of a hippy" when he took over as Australia coach and he provided an example of his alternative methods when he directed his team to walk on the ground where they will face England in Thursday's Cricket World Cup semi-final without shoes and socks.

"If they have to come in they'll be ready to step up", Langer added.

The tournament's official website quoted Langer as saying, "I tell you the truth, Peter Handscomb will definitely play in the match, 100 %".

Langer said it was "very, very important" to take down England openers Jonny Bairstow and Jason Roy.

In South Carolina alone, the program would raise the average teacher's pay by more than $9,000, according to her campaign. Still, this weekend was Biden's second time in the first-in-the-south primary state since the furor unfolded.

Australia required 18 to win off the last over - or 17 for the tie that would also have seen the team finish in first place on net run-rate - but Nathan Lyon was caught in the deep off the next-to-last ball.

"He deserves it, he was really stiff not to be on this tour", Langer said.

But like-for-like replacements Matthew Wade and Mitchell Marsh have joined the Aussie camp in Birmingham, training with the team on Monday.

All-rounder Marcus Stoinis passed a fitness test overnight and is set to play against England with two side strains.

"If you go back 12 months there wasn't much to be relaxed and chilled about in Australian cricket, was there?"

"I feel like there's a very special thing just around the corner for us Australian cricketers and the whole Australian public, to be honest".

A shock loss to Sri Lanka preceded England again falling short against Australia but the triumphs over India and New Zealand showed their mettle as they lived up to their billing as pre-tournament favourites.
