England opener Jason Roy has been ruled out for their highly anticipated World Cup clash against Australia here on Tuesday.
Tuesday's match represents a significant opportunity for Australia to pile pressure on their old enemy, as an England loss would leave them fighting to make the finals.
The duo put on 123 for the first wicket against England on Tuesday, after they were sent in to bat at Lord's.
England need to win all their remaining matches to remain in contention to qualify for the World Cup 2019 semi-finals. "That's the first bit ticked off", said man-of-the-match Finch. We found ways to keep getting wickets.
That still proved too much, though, Jason Behrendorff and Mitchell Starc splitting the wickets as England's top order limped to 53 for four.
He hasn't played a heap of cricket for Australia but when he has he's bowled those good balls and come up with those good spells.

Folau's legal team will next Friday begin conciliation with RA and the case will be heard before the Fair Work Commission. The fullback was on a four-year contract worth more than A$1 million annually when he was sacked.
Stokes and Jonny Bairstow tried to engineer a recovery but Bairstow, on 27, played a wild heave off Behrendorff and gave Cummins another comfortable catch on the boundary.
The match between England and Australia is always special for cricket fans from both countries and when the two teams face on a stage like the ICCWorld Cup 2019, the significance instantly grows manyfold.
"Obviously when we´ve been bowled out quite cheaply in the last two games, it won´t look like that but we are a very, very confident team in terms of our batting line-up and these last two games aren´t going to knock our confidence at all".
"Every game that we can win is massive. Our fate is in our own hands".
David Warner and Aaron Finch can lay claim to being the most consistent opening pair in World Cup history, notching up a fifth successive half-century stand. No point continuing to play him after three failures.
The former Australia captain made 38 before chipping Woakes to Archer at mid-on, and he left the field to a smattering of boos in reference to his role in last year's ball-tampering scandal.
