  1. The old enemy strike again

    It was ever thus - Australia piled on the pain for England at Lord's once again to leave Eoin Morgan's side in a fight to reach the semi-finals of their home World Cup.

    Aussie captain Aaron Finch hit a century as England struggled with the bat and it's Australia who have already booked their place in the last four.

    I thought Eoin Morgan spoke with honesty. The bowling wasn't good enough, it wasn't full enough. What he has to do now is to somehow get around his team individually. he's got to get Jonny Bairstow some confidence. He needs to blow up his tyres, because i can't see how Jason Roy can play Sunday and be fit.

    James Vince, for me, can't play on Sunday. I don't see how you can continue to play him at the top, under the pressure of what this World Cup now is. He's had so many failures under the pressure - you have to remember, he's played in some big games, in Ashes, in the World Cup, and I don't see how you can roll him out against Bumrah and Shami on Sunday.

    Pakistan will finish on 11 points if they win all their matches - and England will be on 10 if they win one and lose one.

    'Press the Roy button'. Like that.

    Eoin Morgan on the fitness of Jason Roy, speaking to Sky Sports: "With four days of rehabilitation he is hopeful of being fit. If it is a big risk we will play it as it is."

    Tomorrow's result - Pakistan v New Zealand - will decide what they do with Jason Roy. If Pakistan roll New Zealand, they'll press the Roy button.

    More from Eoin Morgan on Test Match Special: "Confidence isn't where it was at the start of the tournament, simply because we started really, really well. It's a matter of rebuilding it, going back to our strengths and hopefully sticking to it.

    "Today is easier than the game against Sri Lanka, in many ways because today, in many ways, we didn't compete for a lot of the game. We need to be better."

    On Ben Stokes' injury struggle: "It was cramp. It's a hot day and he plays a role in every facet of our game. He runs around, he bowls fast, then makes a major contribution with the bat. it's nothing to worry about."

    I don't like the word pressure, but the expectation is going to grow. England will be playing India on a pitch that doesn't have pace at Edgbaston. It will be hard work. There's a lot to do between now and Sunday.

  9. 'Win two and go through'

    England captain Eoin Morgan asked if this is England's most disappointing performance: "I think all round probably with the bat, yes. Australia bowled well up front. Being 20-3 sets you back quite a lot. But to fail to build substantial partnerships that can contribute to chasing that down is disappointing. With the ball, I thought we were very good up front. We beat the bat a heck of a lot.

    "We're not feeling the pressure of being favourites. We are in charge of how we go from here on in. We win two games, we definitely go through. It's a matter of producing that performance in one, if not both of those."

    Err...

  11. Not hugely disappointing - Morgan

    England captain Eoin Morgan: "I thought for a lot of today we were outplayed. I thought we bowled well up front and were a little unlucky, Australia seemed to play and miss a lot and build a fantastic partnership up front and capitalised on that by posting a good total. The wicket got a little better but it was still challenging. Losing early wickets was not ideal and not managing to make a substantial partnership to win the game, hence being outplaye."

    Did bowlers bowl too short? "No I don't think so. The wicket was soft when we first started. To win the toss and bat would have been a horrific decision. I thought we bowled really well. Aaron Finch played really well and capitalised on the start he got. Right throughout the innings until 25 overs they dominated. We pegged it back really well. It looked like they would get 330 or 340. To restrict them to 280 was a good effort.

    "When they [Australia's bowlers] make inroads early to get us 20-3 it pegs us back quite substantially.”

    How disappointing to lose to Australia, given success in recent past? "Given the circumstances it is not hugely disappointing. Our fate is in our own hands in the next two games we play. If we can control that and produce performances we will be in a good position come the latter stages.

    "Everything we need to turn around is quite simple. The basics of the game let us down in the last couple of games. Hopefully we will improve on them moving forward."

    More from Aussie skipper Aaron Finch: "It wasn't an easy wicket to start on. I would have bowled had I won the toss but I prefer batting first. Getting runs on the board means a lot in the World Cup.

    "Every team is desperate, two points are so valuable at the pointy end."

    When you get conditions like England found this morning, you have to bring in every dismissal - bowled, lbw, caught behind. I don't think this morning they asked enough questions of all the different batsmen.

    Australia captain Aaron Finch: "You don't win the tournament if you don't reach the semis. That's the first bit ticked off.

    "England are a stand out side, they are a team that can take you apart at stages. We found ways to keep getting wickets.

    "Behrendorff bowled beautifully, he didn't disappoint every time he was called upon."

    The experience from us watching the game tells us you can't just play one way. History tells us that because, if you do, the opposition can plan to play against you. Australia were very clever today. And they know the way England are going to play - they know they're going to go at you.

    India on Sunday might be a 250 wicket - can they get that target by playing a little bit smarter? It's about playing cricket to win the match. England have to do that. I don't care how they do it. They've got to win.

    The games England have lost, they've lost them almost in the same pattern, and that's my issue. If you do something wrong, learn from them. When they play well, they smash teams up, because they're so positive. But at times you have to rein it back in and go again.

    v India, Edgbaston, Sunday.

    v New Zealand, Durham, Wednesday 3 July.

    I couldn't understand England's game plan. Apart from Ben Stokes, who is a wonderful cricketer, I didn't look at the rest of the batters and think they were trying to construct a partnership and knock off this total.

    Australia were very, very good throughout. England didn't do themselves justice. They didn't get it right with the bowling this morning - Archer, in particular, didn't pitch it up enough. Australia made a pretty good score when you look at the history of chasing on this ground, and then we saw the ball swing! What's going on?!
