The age old rivalry between England and Australia has always made for some of the best cricket. This year we will be witnessing yet another spectacle when the Ashes begins on August 1st.
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.
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.
A battle between nations that were both in the top four looked sure to be an exciting game but instead Australia dominated the match. England faltered once again after stumbling earlier in the tournament to Pakistan and Sri Lanka.
