Nathan Hauritz The man made Australia into Semis in ICC Champions Trophy

Nathan Hauritz
Defensive champions Australia edged into the last four with an anxious two-wicket win in opposition to Pakistan on Wednesday.

They now face England at Centurion for a place in the final and Hauritz insists Australia will be taking nothing for granted, despite the one-sided nature of recent 50-over meetings between the two sides.

"It doesn't bother me who we play. I think we've been playing some good cricket lately," he said.

"We've played England just recently, so it is good to play them I guess because we know their game and they know ours. It's a new game and a new venue, so it doesn't really matter.

"I don't think it will have anything to do at all. The only thing is that we get a bit of a better estimate of each other.

"We've known everybody's strengths and weaknesses, whereas when we played India, we hadn't played them for 18 months in one-day cricket. So that's all it is."
