DHAKA:  Australia have set 286-run target against England in the 32nd match of ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 at Lord’s London on Tuesday (June 25).

The match began at 3:30pm (Bangladesh Time).

England won the toss and invited Australia to bat first 

Australia scored 285 runs with the loss of 7 wickets.

The pair between Captain Finch and Warner put on 123 runs. 

"It's not a no-brainer, it's a bit soft on top, but we haven't seen much sun down south so it might do a bit this morning. It builds confidence," Morgan says.

England need to win two of their last three matches to qualify for the semi-finals.

Aaron Finch said, "I'm not too disappointed batting. I wasn't too sure about the wicket, but I would have probably bowled first as well. We've played consistent cricket throughout without being outstanding. If you go too hard you leave yourself open at the back-end against some world-class death bowlers."
