England captain Eoin Morgan admitted that their fate is in their own hands and cleared the air that the side is not feeling any pressure of being favourites after suffering a crushing 64-run defeat at the hands of Australia at Lord’s on Tuesday. He said that England can still make it to the semi-finals by winning their last two games in World Cup 2019. England will face India and New Zealand in their next encounters. Defending champions Australia sealed their place in semi-finals with a victory at Lord’s.
They started the tournament as the overwhelming favourites and it seemed that ‘Cricket would come home’, but that looks bleak after Australia beat England by 64 runs at Lords. It seemed England crumbled under pressure as they were expected to do all the big things by the home fans. Now that we are reaching the backend of the tournament, it seems unlikely that England will make the semi-finals.
It was a big win for Australia over their traditional rivals England, who have had the better of them in the recent past. Queensland Police cashed in the opportunity and launched a subtle jibe at the English cricket team. “The tears of English cricket fans have made driving conditions tricky this morning. Drive safe Brisbane,” read the post.

This tweet irked the fans of England and it is evident through the comments they posted. Most of the England fans pointed out the “sandpaper” incident that went against the Australian team as disgrace. Check out some of their reactions here :
How about using a sandpaper to enhance the tyres’ grip?

Put some sandpaper down. Should give drivers a bit of illegal assist.

However, this was considered as biggest entertainment to the fans of cricket fraternity. England lost to Australia once they lost their wicket of Ben Stoakes who looked promising in the field.
