Peter Siddle, named ICC Emerging Player of the Year, started with the wicket of Andrew Strauss in his first over in the first semi-final of the ICC Champions Trophy, in Centurion, on Friday.

Strauss, who had scored 14 from 10 deliveries, tried to flick one to square leg but James Hopes came up with an excellent catch, diving to his left to send back the England captain.

Tim Bresnan's maiden half-century in ODIs helped England rally after a mini collapse.

They were reduced to 101 for six in the 21st over but Bresnan hit them out of trouble, hitting 80, inclusive of 11 boundaries in 76 deliveries.

He added 107 runs off 121 deliveries for the seventh wicket with Luke Wright, who chipped in with a vital 48.

Pacer Brett Lee ended Bresnan's brilliant innings of 80 with an unplayable yorker that crashed bang into the middle stump.

Graham Onions was the last man dismissed, run out for 1 as England were dismissed for a competitive 257 in 47.4 overs.

Siddle was the most successful bowler, claiming three for 55 in ten overs, while Watson chipped in with vital wickets, claiming 2 for 35, and Lee took two for 46.
