In reply, Jason Roy was in devastating form tearing into the Australian bowling pummelling them for five sixes and nine fours for 85 off 65 balls. Joe Root (49 n.o. off 46 balls) and captain Eoin Morgan (45 n.o. off 39 balls) saw England through to the final with an unbroken stand of 79 off 75 balls

England (Roy 85, Root 49*, Morgan 45*) beat Australia 223 (Smith 85, Woakes 3-20, Rashid 3-54) by eight wickets.
