England have lost their second match in a row at the World Cup.

The hosts went down to Australia by 64 runs at Lord's on Tuesday night.

Batting first, the Aussies posted 285 for 7 led by a blistering century from skipper Aaron Finch.

In reply, England were bowled out for 221 with fast man Jason Behrendorff picking up a five-wicket haul.

Although the result keeps England in fourth place in the points table, they now face a battle for the last semi-final spot with teams like Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh.

Meanwhile, Australia are in the second position.
