A Superb innings of 80 from just 76 balls by all rounder Tim Bresnan has given England a chance in their ICC Champions Trophy Semi Final against Australia.
England appeared to be in all sorts of trouble at 110-6 but Bresnan's innings enabled Andrew Strauss's men to post a competitive total of 257.
Australi a have been playing some good one day cricket in recent times, Ricky Ponting's men defeated England 6-1 in the Natwest Series just over 2 weeks ago.
Australia won the Champions Trophy for the 1st time 3 years ago when it was staged in India, on that occasion the Aussies beat West Indies in the final.
England on the other hand reached the finals of the tournament back in 2004, when they hosted the event, however they lost out to a resurgent West Indies in the title match.
Pakistan and New Zealand face each other in the 2nd Semi Final tomorrow.
It is hard to see New Zealand upsetting the Betting Odds and beating Pakistan tomorrow.
