Australia are bundled out for 223 in their World Cup semi-final against England at Edgbaston on Thursday.
Steve Smith was run out for 85 after which Mitchell Starc edged a delivery to the keeper.
Adil Rashid was the pick of bowlers for England as he picked three wickets - including the one of Alex Carey and Marcus Stoinis in the same over.
Australia won the toss and elected to bat first against England.
NDTV adds: England, bidding to reach their first final since 1992, made a sensational start against the reigning champions, taking three early wickets to leave Aaron Finch's side in deep trouble.
Prolific opening pair David Warner and Finch, as well as Peter Handscomb, were all back in the pavilion by the seventh over. Smith and Alex Carey (46) steadied the innings with a fourth-wicket stand of 103 before leg-spinner Adil Rashid struck twice in five balls to leave Australia 118-5.
The dangerous Glenn Maxwell then holed out to England captain Eoin Morgan off the bowling of Jofra Archer for 22 and Pat Cummins was caught by Joe Root to give Rashid another victim.
