Australia, India would want to lockhorns with New Zealand in the semis

Two results which will determine who India face in World Cup semifinal

Australia will nearly certainly face the Black Caps in next Tuesday's first World Cup semi-final if they beat South Africa in Manchester on Saturday.

Pakistan, now placed fifth on the World Cup points table with 9 points, are the only team not in the top four which still stands a mathematical chance of qualifying for the semifinals.

The New Zealand Cricket Board has confirmed its tour to Sri Lanka next month, which will include a series with two Test matches and three Twenty20 Internationals. After that, they lost the game to Australia which they should have won. Their openers aren't firing and Kane Williamson, after a stellar few games, has seen the law of averages catch up with him.

"There are three powerplays and two new balls which has made it very easy to score runs", he added.

Even though the chances to qualify to the semi-finals of the World Cup 2019 are grim for Pakistan, there is nothing that can be said with certainty.

Lockie Ferguson is expected to be fit for the semifinal despite missing the England match with a hamstring complaint.

Black Caps into World Cup semis
They made 315-9 but could not reach the semi-finals once Bangladesh reached 8-0 in the second over of their chase. Ashwin tweeted initially to which one of his followers wrote "even doing Mankading won't help Pakistan ".

Rapinoe (hammy) expects to be 'fit for the final'
Her genius is that her political commitments, her public persona, and her playing style are one and the same. Through her example, Rapinoe has instructed the world on how to play soccer and how to dissent.

The team that is ranked first in the points table will face the fourth-placed team, while the second-ranked team will face the third-placed team. While the English middle-order has blown hot and cold, their bowling with Jofra Archer and Chris Woakes has performed better than expected.

Pakistan are playing one-day worldwide cricket since 1973 and have so far appeared in 924 matches.

England's big-match temperament was called into question after back-to-back group defeats by Sri Lanka and holders Australia.

Earlier, Pakistan had retained a mathematical chance of joining Australia, India and England and denying New Zealand a spot. According to sources, the contracts of head coach, bowling coach, and team management will end after the World Cup. Frankly, that's the right way to look at things.

'Our aim has always been to celebrate what could be a "once in a generation" moment of a home team in a big final on home soil. The 32-year-old left-arm all-rounder slammed over 500 runs and took 11 wickets in eight matches in the tournament with one game yet to be played.

The only caveat here is that England have won all but one of their matches batting first.
