Australia and Pakistan have claimed wins in the Cricket World Cup to set up a thrilling finale to the group stage as England’s abject title defense finally came to an end.

Adam Zampa took 3-21 in 10 overs as Australia knocked out England with a 33-run win in Ahmedabad.

In Bengaluru, Fakhar Zaman bludgeoned a 63-ball century as Pakistan handed New Zealand its fourth successive loss — despite the Black Caps topping 400 runs — in a rain-hit game which Pakistan won by 21 runs under the DLS method.

Australia’s frontline pace attack shared six wickets to rout England for 253 runs in 48.1 overs. Ben Stokes provided the resistance with 64 off 90 balls.
