Cricket World Cup: England on edge after loss to Australia

From Morning Report, 7:49 am on 26 June 2019

England's hopes of a clear run to the cricket world cup semi-finals are on a knife edge after the hosts were crushed by Australia.

Australia set a relatively modest target of 285 runs but dismissed England for just 221 to become the first country guaranteed a semi-final spot.

New Zealand can join them if they beat Pakistan. England came into the tournament as the bookmakers' favourites but have now dropped to third behind India and Australia.
