England fans rejoice after annihilating their rivals to qualify for Sunday's ...

England fans showed no sympathy to Australia after watching their team thrash their arch-rivals to qualify for Sunday's Cricket World Cup final.  

The three-times runners-up put in an outstanding performance as they romped to a comfortable victory in today's semi-final at Edgbaston, in Birmingham. 

Fans celebrated wildly after the win, waving farewell to Australian supporters who left early as England closed in on victory. 

And they carried on the jubilant celebrations by mocking their defeated rivals on social media. 

One fan wrote: 'I never thought I would feel sorry for the Australian cricket team. And I was right.'

Another said: 'Hard not to feel a bit sorry for Australia in the face of this onslaught. But I can confirm that I've managed not to.' 

A mocking tweet from Gary Lineker read: 'Thoughts are with our Australian friends at this difficult time.'
