Very good game. Can't help feeling that both Australia & England would rather be facing NZ than India in the final.

Oh no... just got home after my evening run (easy 10k 🙂) and see the Aussies are in trouble at 3 for not many! Have we got stage fright?

Hopefully Smith and Carey can stay in for the next 30 overs or so. Iíll back us to defend 220.

Looks like Australia's score is similar to the Indians yesterday. 223 all out in 49 overs, vs 221 all out in 49.3.

Are they going to suffer the same fate?

Wicket looks a lot more benign than yesterday and the ball doesn't seem to be swinging. Bound to be a few twists in the story before the end though.

95 for no loss. Looks like England has got Oz's number.

Nice seeing a non-Indian crowd so animate.

Just need the rain to hold off for 6 overs so that it counts as a game...

Very satisfying to see Steve Smith hit for three consecutive sixes in his first over. Must've left the sandpaper in the dressing room.

Roy cheated of a century by the umpire. Pathetic, it was so far from the bat!

It was a very poor decision, but also a very poor decision by Bairstow to waste the review on a very clearcut lbw.

Can someone explain something?

What are those Aussie fan hats with strings around the rim with something hanging off the string?

True, but you expect higher standards for a WC semi.

Stereotypical Aussie headgear, to keep the blowflies off. Worn only by tourists, of course.

Saw a quote from Zainab Abbas saying it was the best support she'd seen for Pakistan in 25 years of watching. I guess they don't get to play at home so much.

With both the women's soccer team and now the men's cricket team falling over there was a wonderful headline on the Betoota FB page today saying that Australia's sporting hopes now lie with the Wallabies :P

We can dare to dream but geez even if we get out of the group stage (with Wales), we'll likely be playing England or France in a quarter final. If we lose to Fiji in the first match it could be all over before it even begins.

I had the impression that Netball was way more popular in Australia than in the UK and that Australia were quite likely to win the current world cup in that?

I don't have a dog in this fight, but I usually root for the underdog. So, NZ it is.

My son is the only one able to go to  the finals, he is going to get a NZ hat. Look out for the tall Indian dude with the black hat in the Mound stand.

The Kiwis need to start scoring or they are going to let this match get away!

The NZ bowlers are going to have to repeat what they did to India, because this doesn't look like enough runs at the moment. I'd have said 280-290 was about par.

If they get Roy and Bairstow out cheaply you never know.

Yep - they had India at 5-3 and as it stands will need to do something similar. England bat down to 9 or 10 though.

I guess only 2 sides have chased 250 to win in this competition, but the pitch doesn't seem to be offering a huge amount to the bowlers. Needs Boult & Henry to take some early wickets to get NZ into the game.

Unbelievable game! What a finish!

We will be talking about this game for years.

Congratulations England. NZ, what a great game.

Well, I don't think you'll ever see a more exciting finish than the last few overs of that match. England got very, very lucky at a couple of key moments there.

Commiserations to NZ, who really didn't deserve to lose, delighted to see that Kane Williamson got player of the tournament.

It's been a brilliant event - really great to see so much travelling support for India, Pakistan, Bangladesh & Afghanistan, in particular, but every country had supporters there and although it seems like there's been some ticketing problems, great that most games have had pretty decent crowds and there's been so many exciting games and a good balance between batting and bowling.

I hope this win does something to reverse the slow decline of cricket in England (in terms of numbers playing, numbers watching live and tv ratings) that's happened over the last few decades.

I wonder what Ben Stokes's dad (who played rugby league for New Zealand in the 1970s and 1980s) thinks of the whole thing.

Oh that's an awful way to win/lose the world cup - hitting more boundaries in the match? Which muppet came up with that rule?

Why not simply go to another Super over?

Or 'fewest wickets lost'.

I was asleep for most of the latter half of the match, but it seems to have been a great game. Congratulations to England on the win.

yeah... I think it's pretty fair to call that a tie. Winning/losing on a technicality sucks. But what a game.
