Earlier, in the game, Steve Smith 85 off 119 balls guided Australia to 223 in the second semifinal in Edgbaston. The top order of David Warner and Aaron Finch failed to give the Aussies a good start.

Chris Woakes took 3 for 20 including the wicket of Warner to give England the early initiative in the game. Jofra Archer took 3 for 32 while Adil Rashid took 3 for 54 from his spell.
