    Michael Vaughan

    Ex-England captain on BBC Test Match Special

    What a start. England have been outstanding. Carey is lucky he did catch his helmet because it would have gone back onto the stumps.

    It was vicious.

    That bouncer was brilliatly directed. Right at the batsman, who is going to be OK I think.

    As well as you can be when you’re hit in the mouth by a 92mph cricket ball.

    If he hadn’t caught his helmet – great reactions – he may have been out!

  3. Richie Macca:I am not sure specifically what it takes to be a world-class batsman, but whatever it is, I know that Peter Handscomb doesn’t have it.

  4. Aus 19-3

    Steve Smith goes for a single that I wouldn’t want to file a risk assessment for, he would have been well out but Eoin Morgan’s throw from point is a bad one, way over the top. Saw the headlines.

    Jofra Archer then knocks Alex Carey’s helmet off with a vicious bouncer! Carey catches his helmet in his hands but he is bleeding from his jaw.

    Productivity at work has gone from low to very low in the space of six overs!

    BBC chief sports writer at Edgbaston

    The Edgbaston magic spell working for England and their supporters once again. The ground came alive with Warner’s driven four off the very first ball and has been kicking and screaming ever since.

  7. How’s stat?!

    Andy Zaltzman

    Test Match Special statistician

    Alex Carey has batted seven throughout this tournament and has scored more runs than anyone batting six or lower.

  8. Aus 18-3

    Niche.

    Jofra Archer skims one past Alex Carey, who looks very confident as he lets that one go by. The Aussie keeper has batted at seven as a rule but has been in great nick, ruining Archer’s figures with a well timed push for three down the ground.

  9. From the press box

  10. Warner nicks off

    Here’s how David Warner’s World Cup semi-final came to an end.

  11. Aus 15-3

    Remember, Mitchell Starc has to bowl on this later. I say later, might be before lunch at this rate…

    Another fine over from Chris Woakes.

  12. How’s stat?!

    Andy Zaltzman

    Test Match Special statistician

    This is the second worst start any team has made in a World Cup semi-final. Australia were 8-3 in Mohali in 1996 and went on to win.

  13. SMS Message: Well that’s twice so far I’ve reached for my phone to call my dad. He died four years ago so I will tell you all… what a start! from Graham, Southampton

  15. Aus 15-3

    India were 5-3 yesterday so Australia are doing better than that I suppose.

    Alex Carey has come in at five and edges straight away. It drops short of slip though!

    Phil Tufnell

    Ex-England spinner on BBC Test Match Special

    Great delivery again! Sideways movement from Chris Woakes. It nipped back. Fantastic start from England.

    14-3 against Australia in a World Cup semi-final? It doesn’t get any better.

    Early carnage! Australia are in big trouble.

  18. WICKET

    Handscomb b Woakes 4 (Aus 14-3)

    Stay calm, England fans. Stay calm.

    AUSTRALIA ARE 14-3!!!!!

    Full of length, Woakes pitches it up, Peter Handscomb’s uncomfortable innings ends with the sound of timber as he inside-edges into middle stump.

    KERPLUNK! Thanks for coming.

    ‘Had a good innings’ is an overly-used phrase isn’t it? But that’s legit.
