Starc surpasses McGrath in setting new World Cup wickets record

England line up for national anthems

England line up for national anthems

The fine for dissent takes him to three demerit points for this World Cup following an earlier incident against Pakistan, but a ban kicks in only after a player reaches a total of four.

Australia fast bowler Mitchell Starc set a new record for most wickets at a single World Cup when he had England's Jonny Bairstow lbw in the semi-finals at Edgbaston on Thursday.

Replays showed the England batsman had every right to feel aggrieved.

Root (49 not out off 46) and captain Eoin Morgan (45 not out off 39) knocked off the remaining runs to complete a famous win in just 32.1 overs.

England, the tournament host, will play New Zealand in the final at Lord's on Sunday.

Root struck three of his first four balls away to the boundary but Roy fell in conspicuous circumstance, with Cummins' loud appeal for caught behind convincing Kumar Dharmasena of an edge. England have been probably the front-runners in world cricket over the last four years, the way they have changed the game, their game plan in particular has been very aggressive, taking it to the opposition.

Woakes admitted England's stars had been nervous ahead of their country's first World Cup semi-final since 1992, but they quickly banished the butterflies with a blistering start.

The five-time world champions were unable to cope with the searing spell of swing and seam bowling Archer and Woakes were producing, pitching the ideal lines and lengths in a hostile opening half-an-hour of play. They formed a valuable stand of 103 runs before tweaker Adil Rashid had Australia in trouble again.

Although Smith had looked nervy at the starts of his innings, making just seven off his first 34 balls, the No.3 brought up a 72-ball fifty - met by more boos than cheers from the partisan crowd.

Steve Smith was later run out on 85 runs as Australia finished up below-par 223 runs.
