England will play semi-final encounter after 27 years. Joe Root has been most successful batsman for England. Jonny Bairstow scored two consecutive hundred in 2019 World Cup. Birmingham: England’s star batsman Joe Root says they have the ability to exact revenge for the league stage loss to Australia when the arch-rivals meet in Thursday’s World Cup semifinal. England were downed in convincing fashion by their fiercest rivals at Lord’s last month and looked in serious danger of missing out on the semi-finals at their home tournament.But back-to-back wins over India and New Zealand turned the tables and have put the No.1 ODI side in world on a collision course with Australia at Edgbaston in the second semi-final.England have lost their last two clashes with Australia including a warm-up game before the showpiece Cup began, but before that Root and co had the edge with a series win Down Under and a 5-0 whitewash on home soil.”If you look at the past 11 games against them we have won nine,” he said.”These guys and this group over the last four years, their experience against Australia have been very positive and they have got a lot of success in the bank.”I don’t see that as a big worry for this group, we will be drawing on that confidence that over a long period of time now we have been successful against Australia and we should take that into Thursday.”Add to that the fact that England have found their best form with Jason Roy back firing fit at the top of the order and the mood is clearly buoyant.Root added: “I feel we are in a good place coming into it, I feel like the last two days have almost been like knockout cricket for us.”We have been playing in a high-pressure environment for a while now and hopefully that will hold us in good stead going into this game.”It doesn’t matter (who are the favourites). It comes down to who plays their best cricket on the day. If we play in the manner we have the last two games, we will be a very difficult side to play against.”You can look at form, statistically who is stronger, but it all comes down to who handles the day better, who plays the stronger cricket for the longest period and who will stand up and be victorious at the end of it.”The left-arm attack of Mitchell Starc and Jason Behrendorff, who took a five-for at Lord’s, have proved England’s undoing in the last two encounters.But Root is confident lessons have been learned ahead of that encounter.”They bowled extremely well with the new ball, and those early wickets basically dictated the way the game went,? he added.”It is about understanding that will be the main threat early on, that ball swinging and if we can combat that and make a good start then we give ourselves a better chance.”It is something that seems to have been very effective throughout the tournament, that left-arm angle and throughout one day cricket for a while now and they have exploited that nicely.”But we have also seen that we can score quite nicely if they don’t get it right. Trying to be very objective about it, and clear on how you approach it will be very important.”The guys have faced a lot of left arm stuff over their careers and in build up to last game. There will be a lot talked about it and with that comes pressure for them as well to deliver. It works both ways.” highlights For all the Latest Sports News News, ICC World Cup News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.
As for the trade itself, it’s a big move, as Ohai was a star for the Dash. She was the second overall pick in the 2014 NWSL Draft, selected by Houston, and has spent her career with the team. Ohai was a team captain over the past three seasons and owns the club record for goals scored (28).In 2016 she was named to the NWSL Best XI team, and her impressive season led to a call up to the United States Women’s National Soccer Team. She didn’t make the final roster, but did spend time in training camp with the USWNT.Very proud of you and excited for you!!I’ll hold it down here, you dominate in Chicago!❤️💙 https://t.co/2nXTDhRJ3K— JJ Watt (@JJWatt) January 6, 2020″I want to thank the entire Houston organization and the wonderful fans for my last 6 years as a Dash player,” Ohai said in a video posted to Twitter. “I have created lasting friendships and Houston will always be my home. I’m excited for a new opportunity with Chicago and to become the best player I can be.” This headline is trash.Kealia Ohai (which is her name by the way, since you didn’t even bother to mention it) is incredible entirely on her own merit and deserves to be treated as such.Be better than this. https://t.co/82GMrYOv9U— JJ Watt (@JJWatt) January 7, 2020MORE: Texans will need to rely on Deshaun Watson for NFL playoff runAs Watt points out, the tweet doesn’t mention her name. ABC 13 was likely going for an SEO play as Watt is a highly searched player, especially with the Texans still being alive in the playoffs. But this is a questionable approach with a story like this.It’s unclear whether that was ABC 13’s original headline, or just the social copy that was used for the tweet. The headline currently reads, “Houston Dash star Kealia Ohai traded to Chicago.” Kealia Ohai was traded from the Houston Dash to the Chicago Red Stars on Monday after six seasons with the team. Ohai is engaged to Texans star J.J. Watt, and that led some in the media to frame the story in an odd way.News station ABC 13 in Houston sent out a tweet announcing the news with the phrasing: “Houston Dash trade J.J. Watt’s fiancee to Chicago.” The tweet was criticized by many, and eventually made its way to Watt who quote-tweeted it and called the headline “trash.”
