Mitchell Starc set a new record for wickets taken at a single Cricket World Cup when he dismissed England's Jonny Bairstow at Edgbaston on Thursday.

The Australia left-arm quick came into the semi-final having claimed 26 victims in his prior nine matches at the tournament, the same number as compatriot Glenn McGrath picked up at the 2007 edition.

Starc's haul included the 4-43 he took in the group-stage defeat of England at Lord's and he set the new benchmark by trapping Bairstow lbw for 34.

There was little cause for celebration for Starc, though, as that left England 1-124 in the 18th over after bowling Australia out for just 223.

Fitzpatrick inducted into ICC Hall of Fame.
Australian women's cricket legend Cathryn Fitzpatrick has been inducted into the sport's hall of fame, alongside Sachin Tendulkar and Allan Donald. "To gain recognition alongside many of the game's giants is a huge honour," she said. "I look at the list of past inductees and what stands out most is not only their outstanding talent, but that they were game changers. They took the game on and changed the way it was played. "Looking back, I can think of many highlights, which include winning the World Cup in 1997 and 2005, but it is a tour of England in 1998 where the Women's Ashes was conceived that stands out.
