England stroll past Australia into the final
Australia’s reign is over, defeated in a World Cup semi-final for the first time. New Zealand await, but England will celebrate for now, in fact there are fireworks going off at Edgbaston. I wonder if they would have been used for an Australia win? It’s actually chucking it down now, but nothing can rain on England’s parade; they’ve won a World Cup knockout game for the first time since 1992, the tournament which also marked their last appearance in the final.
