Australia qualified for the semi-finals by defeating England by 64 runs in the 32nd match of the ICC World Cup 2019. Batting first, Australia scored 285/7, thanks to Aaron Finch's magnificent century.

In reply England's team was bundled out for 221 runs. Australian captain Aaron Finch was adjudged Man of the Match for his 100-run knock.

Let's take a look at 9 records created during the match:

1. Before 2019 World Cup, England did not lose a single match chasing the target in their home since 2016, but in the current World Cup England have lost three out of four matches chasing the score.
2. David Warner-Aaron Finch, becomes the fourth pair to add 3 times more than 100 runs in a World Cup. Before them, Sri Lanka's Arvinda de Silva-Asanka Gurusinh, Australia's Adam Gilchrist-Matthew Hayden in 2007 and Sri Lanka's Tillakaratne Dilshan-Kumar Sangakkara made the record in 1996.

3. Aaron Finch's scored his 15th ODI century and seventh century against England. Earlier, no Australian batsman had scored more than 6 hundreds against any one team. Finch broke the record of Adam Gilchrist (6th century vs India)
4. David Warner becomes eighth batsman to score 500 runs in a World Cup. Only Sachin Tendulkar has made this record twice.

5. Aaron Finch scored his second century against England in the World Cup. In the World Cup, the record for most centuries against any single team is named after AB de Villiers (3 vs West Indies).
6. 13 batsmen have now scored 14 centuries in the World Cup against England. Only Aaron Finch has two centuries against England.

7. Mitchell Starc equalls the record of taking 15 wickets in a World Cup twice, and joined the list, Wasim Akram (1992 and 1999), Glenn McGrath (1999, 2003 and 2007), Zaheer Khan (2003 and 2011) and Tim Southey (2011 and 2015).

8. Jofra Archer (16) equalled the record for most wickets in a World Cup for England, apart from Archer, Ian Botham took 16 wickets in 1992.
