On Sunday marked the most important day of cricket for both New Zealand and England. What a day of cricket it was, the crowd was electric and they were hyped up even more by all the drama.
The time as come for the the ICC Cricket World Cup Final and we officially know who will be in it.
The Proteas took on table toppers Australia who were tipped to win the game with ease. The Proteas proved that they are still a top side and that they aren’t just pushovers. The Proteas spoiled the Aussies party and their fixture in the semi-finals.
Friday was probably the biggest game of Pakistan’s tournament as they not only needed to defeat Bangladesh but they also needed to beat them by a large margin in order to qualify for the semi-finals.
If we want to go back to the last time that England reached a World Cup semi-final we have to go all the way back to 1992. For England to change that they needed to defeat New Zealand at Chester-le-Street. England came into the game with a lot of momentum after winning their last two games.
It was match day 40 of the ICC Cricket World Cup on Tuesday which meant that the group fixtures were nearing an end. This also meant that the clash between India and Bangladesh was a game of utmost importance for both sides who still had a chance of reaching the semi-finals.
An England team that was low on confidence came into their game against India knowing that anything less than a win would mean they would be knocked out of the tournament.
The Proteas have had a pretty rough time at the Cricket World Cup having only one game out of seven coming into the game against Sri Lanka. The Proteas have already been eliminated from the tournament which meant they knew that they could come into the game and play with freedom.
India remained unbeaten thus far throughout the tournament after crushing the West Indies.
Pakistan has further extended their reputation as the most unpredictable side in world cricket. One day they’re struggling against average teams and the next they are beating strong opponents like New Zealand.
