Other option, could be to bring in Jason Behrendorff for Nathan Coulter-Nile. They need wins from both of their final group games against unbeaten India and New Zealand, or other results to go their way.
Holders Australia, through to the semi-finals after their sixth win from seven matches, are once again peaking nicely ahead of the knockout stages. We found ways to keep getting wickets.
James Vince, Roy´s replacement, was bowled for a second-ball duck by Behrendorff after managing just 14 against Sri Lanka.
It was left to Australia in the form of the left-armers Mitchell Starc and Jason Behrendorff to show England how it should be done - pitch it up on a full length and get the batsmen coming forward to bring caught, bowled and lbw all into play.
Moeen Ali was caught by wicketkeeper Alex Carey off Behrendorff for six, Chris Woakes fell for 26 and Jofra Archer (one) became Behrendorff's fifth victim before Adil Rashid was last man out for 25.
"Obviously when we´ve been bowled out quite cheaply in the last two games, it won´t look like that but we are a very, very confident team in terms of our batting line-up and these last two games aren´t going to knock our confidence at all".
"Losing early wickets was not ideal and we were not able contribute to a substantial partnership to win the game".
Australia captain Aaron Finch struck a magnificent hundred, sharing a century stand with David Warner (53) - booed, along with Steve Smith (38), by the Lord's crowd - as the opening pair repelled the early threat. No point continuing to play him after three failures.
He skied Archer's next delivery straight into the hands of Woakes at fine leg, however, and Australia lost momentum as Maxwell was out for 12 and Stoinis was run out for eight following a comical mix-up with Steve Smith.
Eoin Morgan and Jonny Bairstow, meanwhile, were the makers of their own downfall, both taking on short balls as England tried to stay true to the positive brand of cricket that has taken them to No 1 in the world since the last World Cup.
