Australia bowed out of the 2017 CT after losing to England in the rain-curtailed game as the hosts were awarded maximum points courtesy of the DLS method. While the Twitterati bashed the Aussies for their horrendous performance, they were equally excited as Bangladesh made it into the semis.
Brief Scores: Australia 277/9 (Travis Head 71, Aaron Finch 68; Mark Wood 4/33, Adil Rashid 4/41) lost to England 240/4 (Ben Stokes 102*, Eoin Morgan 87; Josh Hazlewood 2/50, Mitchell Starc 1/52) by 40 runs (DLS).
Here are the best tweets from the game:
Can't blame them
Would be a shame if they don't
Bangladesh might offer honorary citizenship to Stokes &Eoin Morgan anytime now #— Siddharth Kaul (@koshurkot) June 10, 2017

That is harsh!!
Only the English people know their weather and how to manipulate. Bad luck #AusVsEng— Nirmal Pandey (@nirmalregency) June 10, 2017
The Great Aussie teams would be banging their heads in shock
7 Bowlers used and result is zero. This is not AUSTRALIAN team. 🙈#AUSvsENG— Rohit Guneta (@rohit_guneta) June 10, 2017
India or West Indies? Who will win?
WI hold a 60-53 H2H advantage over IND historically but in last 10 completed games between them , IND have won 7. IND has also won all last 5 games at this venue.
