Day for Stoinis to prove Cup fitness

Breaking: Australia bring in Matthew Wade and Mitchell Marsh with injury cloud over Usman Khawaja and Marcus Stoinis

However, the team need the approval of the ICC's event technical committee for the replacement of Khawaja with Wade in the squad.

Michael Clarke, the 2015 World Cup-winning captain, said it would be a poor look for selectors if Handscomb didn't make his World Cup debut in the semi-final.

Left-handed Australian batsman Usman Khawaja has been ruled out of the remainder of the ongoing World Cup with a hamstring injury.

"If he (Wade) comes in, he has played a lot of worldwide cricket, which is a real upside and he's in no doubt career-best form", Langer said.

"He deserves it. He was so unlucky not to be in the initial squad after what he'd done to help us get to that point".

Langer labelled himself as "a bit of a hippy" when he took over as Australia coach and he provided an example of his alternative methods when he directed his team to walk on the ground where they will face England in Thursday's Cricket World Cup semi-final without shoes and socks.

But Langer said they would stick with picking a top four that could strike centuries and adapt that to facing England's bowling attack.

Australia were struggling at 119 for four and Warner could only watch as wickets fell early against a Proteas side whose own semi-final hopes had long since disappeared.

"Matthew Wade has played a lot of worldwide cricket if he comes in".

Luckily for Australia, both Wade and Marsh may be very useful additions to the team.

Roy, however, was missing with a torn hamstring and since his return, England have scored crucial wins over India and New Zealand that took them into the semi-finals.

Their meeting earlier in the tournament at Lord's saw Australia prevail but England have since rebounded by beating India and New Zealand and Finch knows his side must regroup quickly.

He said: "Playing well against England a couple of weeks ago obviously will give us some confidence going into that game".

The Australian World Cup squad sit barefoot in a circle to spiritually connect with the Edgbaston turf.

Marcus Stoinis, the all-rounder who has battled side issues, has been passed fit after getting through training but there remains a temptation to look at the in-form Matthew Wade as an extra batsman, having joined the squad this week as Khawaja's official replacement. It didn't just affect our cricket, it affected our country.

"We are a different sort of animal compared to our last teams".

"I feel like there's a very special thing just around the corner for us Australian cricketers and the whole Australian public, to be honest".

"With his experience, if he plays, then we're confident he'll do a really good job".
