England beat Australia in the World Cup semifinal by 8 wickets and with 17.5 overs to spare at Edgbaston in Birmingham on Thursday. The hosts have thus progressed to the final of this World Cup, to be played on Sunday. England and New Zealand, the two finalists, have never won the World Cup title, and so we are set to have a first-time winner.
Here is how cricketers and cricket fans reacted to England’s demolition of Australia, the defending champions, in the semifinal:
A new world champion for certain. #CricketWorldCup Well done England.?

Great all-round performance from team England! Brilliant aggressive batting to back the bowling effort. We will have a new #CWC19 winner and it should be a memorable final. Tough luck Australia #ENGvAUS
