Eoin Morgan urges England to embrace World Cup 'dream'

Plunkett: Defeats have made England stronger

The winners of the match in Birmingham will face New Zealand, who shocked mighty India at Old Trafford on Wednesday.

"I think Sri Lanka was a game we felt we could have won and should have won, but let ourselves down and that had an overhang into the Australia game", Morgan said.

England batsman Joe Root is determined the "spicy" nature of England's latest clash with Australia will not prove a distraction when the arch-rivals meet for a place in the World Cup final.

Australia, on the other hand, always deal with pressure remarkably well and not for nothing, are defending champions.

For New Zealand either opponent is an intriguing prospect.

Eoin Morgan's England came back strongly to finish the group stage with six wins from nine matches, while Australia were the first team to book their final-four spot.

The way the chase panned out vindicated New Zealand captain Kane Williamson's attritional approach to batting on hard conditions on Tuesday, which ended prematurely because of rain with the Blacks Caps 211-5 with 3.5 overs remaining.

Captain Aaron Finch has a key role to play and not just with the bat where he has scored 507 runs at an average of 56.33. The Kiwi bowlers rattled the top-order of India.

Liam Plunkett believes this England side are "a different animal" to their predecessors and "can beat anyone in the world" if they play well.

Jofra Archer, 24, has combined with senior paceman Chris Woakes to give the home side a lethal new-ball pair that Australia will be wary of. I think it plays a part here at Edgbaston. Two good teams in a relatively small ground with the promise of big scores in front of a capacity crowd. The last time we played here against India, we saw a high score of 340 and them nearly chasing it down.

"If conditions are good to bat, then they will have to bat really well", Kohli added. They have the capability to handle the Australian bowling lineup.

But Root, a member of the England side that lost to Australia in the group stage, told reporters at Edgbaston on Monday: "Nathan has a lot to say, a lot of the time, so you just take it with a pinch of salt". "For a while getting through to this stage looked unlikely, or was called into question, and I think that makes it more exciting for us".

And after what New Zealand media quickly dubbed "The Manchester Miracle", the understated Williamson insisted the 2015 runners-up had every chance of going one better and winning their first World Cup title. "It does not get better than that in my opinion", Boult said.
