Watch: Mitchell Starc delivers ‘Ball of the tournament’!
As the first team, Australia have registered the semi-final berth of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 defeating ancient rivals England by 64 runs in the mega contest of the tournament. Chasing Aussie’s target of 285 runs, the English batsmen were curtailed short at 221 runs in 44.4 overs.
The target was not rather stiff for England but they began their innings losing flurry of wickets thus rested to 53 for 4 at one stage.
All-rounder Ben Stokes stitched a 71-run partnership with Jos Buttler, tried to get England back into the game.
Buttler was dismissed at the team score of 124 but Stokes was there batting at 89. Aussie paceman Mitchell Starc bruised England’s hope with a dazzling Yorker rattling Stoke’s stumps.

That, from Mitch Starc to Ben Stokes, has to be one of the best yorkers you will see. Almost certainly the ball that guarantees Australia a place in the semi-final.
