England to Face Australia in the second Semi-Final Today
Of the four qualified teams, India, Australia, New Zealand, and England, India and New Zealand (the first and fourth teams in points table) played the first semifinal and the second semifinal will be played between England and Australia (the second and third teams in the points table). The first semifinal that had been interrupted due to rain was played for two days. New Zealand defeated India in that and advanced to semifinals.
The second semifinal England vs Australia is scheduled to take place on 11th July 2019. The teams have qualified for the semifinals with Australia earning 14 points and England earning 12 points. Australia had a fantastic run in the tournament with 7 wins in the 9 matches played. The team had only lost against India and South Africa. Nevertheless, Australia is one of the strongest teams in WC 2019 and since it had already won against England in the Leagues, the team will encounter them in the semifinal 2 with adequate confidence.
England had a pretty rough run in the tournament. The team had lost its second match in the tournament against Pakistan, and later faced defeats against teams like Sri Lanka and Australia. But they have had great victories against teams like South Africa, Bangladesh, West Indies, and New Zealand. England scored 300+ totals in most of the matches and that total has amassed it a Net Run-rate of 1.152. The team though has a lower number of points than Australia, is fantastic and is fully capable of facing them in the Semifinals.
Both England and Australia teams are among the strongest in WC tournament and though Australia had defeated the England team before in the leagues, it would be pretty hard to predict the outcome of Semifinal 2. The match is going to take place in Edgbaston, Birmingham from 09:30 AM GMT. Watch to find out which of the two teams advance to Final in Lord’s.
