The three-times runners-up are now firm favourites to land the trophy for the first time on Sunday, having thrashed the Black Caps by runs in the group stage, and head to the home of cricket on the back of a sensational performance at Edgbaston.

Chris Woakes, Jofra Archer and Adil Rashid performed wonders with the ball after Australia chose to bat first, reducing the visitors to 14 for three in a frenzied opening burst and ultimately restricting them to a lacklustre all out. England would have been mindful that they were bowled out for and beaten by the same attack last month, but Jason Roy missed that game with a torn hamstring and his brilliant 85 put the game beyond a shellshocked Australia, who went down with balls remaining.

Having already thrashed nine fours and five sixes, he would surely have gone on to a career-best hundred had he not been robbed in messy circumstances. Given caught behind despite making no contact with the ball, he instantly called for a review only to belatedly realise Jonny Bairstow had already used it up.

The sour tone of his dismissal cannot detract from his outstanding efforts, which almost single-handedly banished England's concerns about chasing, nor from the raucous celebrations which followed on the back of a decisive stand of 79 between Joe Root 49 not out and Eoin Morgan 45 not out.

Archer and Woakes also excelled, taking two for 32 and three for 20, while Rashid bagged three scalps in his best display to date.

Cricket coverage moves to More 4 at 1. I'm sure he'll play. It stopped swinging pretty early so I just went to the cross- and quarter-seam balls to get something off the wicket. It nipped off the pitch more than it swung. And some news for non Sky subscribers World Cup final will be available to watch on channel 4 and more 4 on Sunday.

I'd like to thank the fans. Their support has been exemplary. Today was his day, him and Jofra was outstanding and the guys who came behind backed them up. Jason and Jonny are in the form of their lives.

If they get in they take advantage of it. I was six when England played in the final in I don't remember it but I've seen the highlights.

It's an opportunity for us, a huge one. Where we were in and where we're going on Sunday - getting there is awesome and everyone in the dressing room should take great credit for it. Making the most of the opportunity for us on Sunday would be fantastic.

The way they set the tone with the ball, there was no coming back for that. They bowled a great length.

The five-week tournament will be played in Australia from 18 October until 15 November

We've come a long way from where we were last year. You always want to win but there's definitely been some positives, a lot of backs to the wall, a lot of character over the past few months, significant progress made but it still hurts. We got hurt by a very, very good team.

Incredible performance from the whole team. It wasn't a bad wicket, we found the right length and when we kept the pressure on, they had to rebuild and rebuild. When you're chasing a small total, getting off to a flyer makes all the difference.

We have one game to play, hopefully we can go all the way. How fitting that Eoin Morgan should hit the winning runs He has led the revolution and deserves all the praise he receives. An absolute trouncing of the holders by a ruthlessly brilliant England performance.
