Pat Cummins - It's been great, the boys have played great, we're getting better every game. We've improved every game, still haven't played the perfect game. It's something we pride ourselves on, we didn't start well, but the boys put their hand up, from the first 2 games. He has bowled beautifully in the last 3 matches (at Jhampa), scoring 29 runs and taking a banger (a catch). We thought it was a good wicket and probably played on his strength. Maxi and Mitchie will be back, they had a great tournament and it was great for the others to come and put on a performance. Tonight wasn't too bad (in the dew), sometimes we see players getting wet as they slide, but today wasn't that bad.

Jos Buttler - Disappointment, we were having the same chat after the match. Improvement today, more with the bat, but we were still short, no complaints if we lost by 30 runs. A low point as a captain, you stand in this position, you come to India with high hopes and expectations, we didn't do ourselves any justice, everyone knows how hard we worked, these losses are too much on our shoulders. . We did well (with the ball), but we could have done better, we let them have a disappointing short haul. With dew all around, we back ourselves and we fall 30 runs short. It was the right shot to play (on his dismissal), the execution wasn't great, I was trying to get it back to them. I didn't play as well as I could, in such an important position, I think I let myself and my team down. The only way to come back is to put hard yards at the net and come back better in the next match.

Mitchell Starc: Keeps the momentum going. Not the best start but we progressed nicely. We are progressing nicely. They will probably claim a moral victory (laughs). They are the defending champions, we thought they would come at us aggressively. Was generally slow to start. We didn't really mention an even score. Zampa took away the momentum. A couple of wickets helped the powerplay. Jumper has had one helluva day. Probably didn't get it right the other night against New Zealand. Got a proper training session. Sometimes the take-off in my delivery stride forces me to jump into it. Joe swings a little late to Root. I certainly heard it. Marnus hears it but his strike rate in reviews is poor, getting it right once in 50 (laughs). I don't think you can take anyone lightly. Wankhede has a bit of a nip. We saw India bowl brilliantly the other night.

Adam Zampa | Man of the Match: I mean just summarizing the condition was important. We batted really well to score 286 runs. The field is really wet with dew. Attacking the stumps was important. It came out as good as ever. Really nice. Just tried to be really positive and bat 50 overs. Rotation of the strike was important. One of those days. He felt satisfied. Hopefully my best is yet to come.

22:17 local time, 16:47 GMT, 22:17 IST: They came in as defending champions, beaten in the first game in Ahmedabad and it was only fitting that this is where they were officially knocked out of the tournament. Their batting was abysmal, they improved on that front, but 286 was a bridge too far. Losing two wickets early on, Malan and Stokes settled things with a partnership, but they again lost two wickets on the bounce. This was followed by another pair, but was completely chased down by quick wickets. Rashid, Willey and Woakes tried to do something special, but they were always going to struggle to reach the winning line. A great night for Adam Zampa, 3 for 21 with the ball, 29 with the bat and a special catch to cap off the day. Australia now have 10 points and are ahead of New Zealand in the table, with games against Afghanistan and Bangladesh as they look to book a place in the semi-finals. Although England have some games to play, they are 10th in the table and need to win their last 2 matches to qualify for the 2025 Champions Trophy.
