Over 41 England 240/4/No

So this ends the proceedings of today's match. England make it three wins in three and top the Group A table. Along with them, beating all the odds, Bangladesh go through to the semis. Tomorrow, we have the first do-or-die clash from Group B as South Africa take on India for a place in the semis. The match will take place at The Oval and will start at 1030 local (0930 GMT). Do join us for it. Until then, take care! Cheers!
Steve Smith says, It is very disappointing. Admits they did not play well. Feels they lost too many wickets in the between something around 5 for 15. He adds we cannot do that against a top team like England. On being asked weather the batsman did not get a lot of match practice he says that cannot be used as a reason. Reckons the balance of the team was very good but the players did not stand up. Feels a lot has not gone their way ( talking about the weather). Admits they were not at their best with the ball after the break. Feels they gave away some easy balls to Stokes and Morgan. Also admits they did not play their best game.
Eoin Morgan says that things have been going pretty well for them and they have been slightly lucky as well. Adds that they did a reasonable job today. Adds that they took the game away from Australia when they were in command. Applauds his bowlers in restricting the opposition to a below par total. On Mark Wood's recent scalps, he informs that it takes a high quality bowler to take the wickets of some of the best batsmen in the world. Mentions that either of Pakistan and Sri Lanka will be tough as it's a tough tournament and everyone has to be at their very best. On the talk between him and Stokes at 3 down, he informs that they told each other, it was a great wicket and they needed to get a partnership going.
Man of the Match, Ben Stokes says that his training has been consistent and he has been timing the ball well. Adds that they wanted to get along as they had a partnership going and didn't want any more interruptions. Praises Eoin Morgan for his knock and says that he has been in great form form and hopes that the team plays around him. On his Indian T20 League experience he says that it helped him to play under pressure situation and in front of huge crowd. On his injury problem he says that he is good nick and is feeling good about his fitness.
The host came out with a very positive attitude and despite being three down Eoin Morgan and Ben stokes took the attack to the Australian bowlers. They started hitting the ball to all parts of the ground and stitched a 159 run partnership better than a run a ball. The former scoring a 87 and the latter scoring an unbeaten ton which took the game away from the visitors. It was a convincing victory for England in the end.
Coming back to the chase, the Aussie bowlers started off really well bagging three wickets in quick succession, with Hazlewood taking two and Starc picking one wicket. They were on top at that moment and England were on the back foot. There was a delay in play due to rain in between and maybe that is what England needed.
So, Australia the World Champions have been knocked out of the Champions Trophy. It was their arch rivals who knocked them out of the tournament. The English side knocked them out in 2013 and they have done it again this year.
UPDATE 1840 LOCAL TIME - The news from the middle has arrived and it's not a good one as the match has been called off. ENGLAND WIN BY 40 RUNS (DLS METHOD)!
PLAY HALTED - As we mentioned earlier, the drizzle had started. Now, it has got heavier and so the umpires have decided to go off the field. England played some superb cricket in the last hour or so and hence they are well above the DLS par score for now, which is 200! The next update will be at 1830 local time.
40.2
A Zampa to Ben Stokes, Pushed slightly quicker through the air, clipped to mid-wicket.
40.1
A Zampa to Ben Stokes, FOUR! Century for Ben Stokes! Shorter and spinning away Stokes goes back and slashes it hard through covers. Beats the man in the deep to collect another boundary. What a knock it has been from him! He came at a time when England were struggling but played a superb counter-attacking cricket with his skipper Morgan. He truly deserves this ton.
