Default First Semifinal of Champions Trophy ENG vs AUS

Today is the 1st semifinal of ICC Champions Trophy between England and Australia in Edgbaston. What is expected? Can England come out with a win after 14 winless ODI's against Australia! Australia is the favourite team in today's match. They have come with convincing wins against US and NZ. However, England have the last win over Australia in 1999 in Sidney with a seven-run victory.
Let's watch, who qualifys for the final.

England seems to be moving slowly to make it happen after 14 failures.
Australia 117/3 off 26 overs , RR 4.47

Australia 259/9 off 50 overs. This looks like a modest score.
England will bat with a target of 260 with RRR 5.2.
To keep their consistency, Aussies need to bowl extreamly well.

England is 93/1 off 16 overs. RR 5.81.
It seems that England is in comfort, so far.

67 runs to make, 66 balls to go, 8 wickets in hand. England are in a very good position to go for victory!

It's a good day for England. I'm very pleased to see that someone biting Australia. No body likes the dominance of Australia in all matches. It is a great comeback for England.

Very good win for Eng. They beat Australia convincingly. Its also good for Pakistan/WI whoever wins, because Pakistan can never beat Australia, and WI have good One day record against England recently.

I am going to root for Pakistan/WI against England for this tournament.

It's really nice to see England in the final. Although I like Aussies also, but England deserves this win.
I will like to see England and Pakistan in the final.

I like the dominance of Australia in all matches, I balance it out nicely with the opposite of dominance (disdominance?ildominance?) of Bangladesh. Lets say they're dominant in being disappointing

Well done to England but AUstralia has still not won a CT. Dam. ITs because the selectors replaced Shane Watson With Brett Lee. WHy did they do that. THey will know not to do it agian.
