Australia's Langer reveals Handscomb will face England in World Cup semis

Australia's Langer reveals Handscomb will face England in World Cup semis

But Saturday's loss was compounded by the sight of Usman Khawaja retiring hurt on six with a hamstring injury, and Finch revealed the left-handed batsman's campaign might be over as he "is not looking great in all honesty".

Although Handscomb is now Australia's lone official replacement in the squad there are various permutations that potentially see him not lining up at Edgbaston with Matthew Wade and Mitchell Marsh now acting as cover.

Matthew Wade and Mitch Marsh will join Australia's World Cup squad as cover for injured pair Usman Khawaja and Marcus Stoinis.

But Langer said they would stick with picking a top four that could strike centuries and adapt that to facing England's bowling attack.

Khawaja hauled himself to the middle to bat after the fall of the seventh wicket, with his team needing 51 runs off the final 28 balls, and struck two fours in nine balls before departing for 18. "Peter Handscomb will definitely play, 100 per cent", the official website of the cricket World Cup quoted Langer as saying. "We're really lucky", Langer said.

Matthew Wade from the Australia A squad will replace Khawaja in the squad.

Langer also confirmed that all-rounder Marcus Stoinis had passed a fitness test and was ready for Edgbaston while refusing to guarantee the mercurial Glenn Maxwell a place in the team.

"I feel like there's a very special thing just around the corner for us Australian cricketers and the whole Australian public, to be honest".
