England defeated Australia by eight wickets at Edgbaston in Birmingham on Thursday to enter the finals of the World Cup 2019. The hosts will now face New Zealand at Lord's on Sunday to battle it out for the coveted title. Chasing a tricky target of 224, England's opening batsmen got their team off to a flying start. When the Australian bowlers were struggling to get the breakthrough, former England captain Michael Vaughan took a dig at Australia and asked Australia's bowlers to "try and bowl barefoot". This tweet led to a response from Adam Gilchrist who called Vaughan an "Idiot".

Vaughan then replied to Gilrchrist's tweet with a graphic image. Gilchrist soon replied to Vaughan and asked him to be available to open on Sunday as Jason Roy might miss the final after he expressed his displeasure to on-field umpire's call.

During the match, when Roy was batting on 85, he missed a pull shot off Pat Cummins and the Australian fielders appealed for a catch behind the wicket. On-field umpire Kumar Dharmasena took his time and eventually gave the decision in favour of the bowling side.
The problem for Roy was that England had already squandered their lone review of the innings with an unsuccessful attempt to overturn fellow opener Jonny Bairstow's lbw dismissal for 34.
Nevertheless, Dharmasena confusingly and incorrectly signalled for a review, with Australia pointing out the official's mistake.
Roy, his arms spread wide, clearly believed Dharmasena should have signalled a wide delivery instead and the furious batsman had to be ushered away from the crease by square leg umpire Marais Erasmus.
Showing dissent at an umpire's decision is an offence under the International Cricket Council's code of conduct and match referee Ranjan Madugalle could now take action.
