    England are unchanged from the loss against Sri Lanka, says Eoin Morgan.

    Coolest man in cricket, Morgan. Never a flicker of emotion on his face.

    Right then. Eoin Morgan and Aaron Finch are stood next to one another, coin nestled firmly in Morgan's mitts.

    Time for the toss...

  5. Morgan won't stop fans booing Smith & Warner

    In his pre-match press conference, England captain Eoin Morgan admitted he will not try to prevent England fans booing Australia pair Steve Smith and David Warner in today's game.

    Smith and Warner have been received with hostility since returning from one-year ball-tampering bans, but India skipper Virat Kohli asked their fans not to jeer Smith when they met earlier in the tournament.

    "Regaining trust takes a lot of time. Who knows how long it will take?" Morgan told BBC Sport.

    "I don't think I could do anything, or should do anything, to try to influence the fans to change their minds."

    If Australia had any sense, they'd be asking her if she fancies batting at three in their next game.

    A bowl first sort of day...?

  8. What happened yesterday?

    Shakib Al Hasan starred for Bangladesh as they beat Afghanistan by 62 runs to properly nip at England's heels.

    Shakib made another half-century to cement his place as the tournament's leading run-scorer and then took 5-29 as Bangladesh successfully defended 262.

    They're now just a point behind England in fifth place...

    BBC Sport at Lord's

    After a month of shadow boxing, the World Cup finally feels proper. As the captains spoke yesterday, addressing the newly painted real tennis courts at Lord's, the tone was as heavy as the black walls. North London has been freshened by overnight rain. The temperature is pleasant, the grey sky illuminated by the flashing of the BT Tower. "Good morning London," it beams.

    This is the biggest game of the tournament so far. Win, and England can think about the semis. Lose, and all of Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh will nip at their heels. And that's without even mentioning the Ashes....

    Yes, it does feel a bit like England play Australia every other week, but this should be a good one.

    It's the first time England have played against Steve Smith and David Warner in a competitive game since #Sandpapergate and Australia have - say it quietly - been playing rather well in this World Cup.

    The summer of England versus Australia starts now.
