Boult keen for another shot at Australia in World Cup final

Joe Root speaks to the media

Confirming the news, Australian head coach Justin Langer said Handscomb will be named in the side's Playing XI in place of injured Usman Khawaja for their all-important clash against the Eoin Morgan-led side.

India made an abject start to their reply, losing three wickets in the space of 11 balls, including the prize scalps of Rohit and Kohli, who had contributed in excess of 1,000 runs in the group stage.

But while the real trophy is taken back to the ICC headquarters in the UAE, the team takes home a replica.

When it was suggested that New Zealand had plunged billions of India fans into a state of mourning, the understated skipper, who has captained the Sunrisers Hyderabad in the Indian Premier League, replied: "I hope they're not too angry".

"I think we're probably more confident than we were three games ago".

"We're going to bat", said Finch.

The victor of today's game will face New Zealand in Sunday's final at Lord's after the Black Cups beat India by 18 runs on Wednesday.

The response was swift, battering anyone and everyone in their way, including England, until a surprise 10-run defeat to South Africa last time out.

Dollar slammed after Powell's bleak U.S
The Fed has kept its current benchmark overnight interest rate in a range of between 2.25 percent and 2.50 percent since December. The chance of a 50 bps cut rose to 27.6 per cent from 3.3 per cent on Tuesday, according to CME Group's FedWatch tool.

"They have got a lot of success in the bank. We will be drawing on the fact that over a long period of time now we have been successful against Australia and we should take that into Thursday".

"Whether it's the noise bouncing off the stands or whether it's just this ground, you do feel there's a great element of support here". I think the loss against Sri Lanka hurt us.

"But yeah two quality sides (England and Australia) are going to play tomorrow (second semi-final)".

He also believes his team can draw confidence from their run to the 2016 World Twenty20 final.

England though were then without Liam Plunkett, now back in their team, and the fast bowler has yet to feature in a defeat at this World Cup. But after getting beaten by Pakistan and Sri Lanka we dwelt on it a little bit rather than just forgetting about it and moving on.

They came into the tournament as favourites, yet England's poor show amidst the group stages saw them almost being removed from the 2019 World Cup.

Both the sides met in the group stage of the tournament where Australia comfortably thumped England by 64 runs at Lord's on June 25.

This will be a step up in intensity however for Handscomb, who has played 21 ODIs since making his debut in 2017. "If we do the things well that we know we can do, especially with the ball, I think we're good enough to beat anyone on the day".
