New Zealand beat India in all very important 1st semi-final by 18 runs and make it into the final while England beat their rival Australia in the 2nd semi-final by 8 wickets and joins New Zealand in the final of the world cup 2019.

Both teams have done their final preparations and ready to face each other in the final. Final of the cricket world cup 2019 will be at lords the home of cricket, the ground witnessed so many important matches in the past before this final. There is always a special feeling playing in lords, and match like final has its own charm, so everyone is ready to witness the historic final at the historic ground.


If we talk about stats, facts, and figures, there is quite a tough competition between both teams. If we talk about England vs New Zealand head to head in the world cups, they face each other 9 times in the world cups, where New Zealand won 5 while England manages to won 4 matches which shows the dominance of the New Zealand team over the England team in the world cups.

England’s highest score against New Zealand in the world cups was 322 while New Zealand posted 239 as the highest score against England in the world cups, which shows a clear dominance of the England batting power. If we talk about the lowest total, England had 123 against New Zealand in world cups while New Zealand had 125 against England in the world cups. These stats and facts show that this will be a great final to watch.


In one day internationals, New Zealand dominant over England here as well. New Zealand ahead of England by a very little margin, but these stats surely give some confidence to the New Zealand side which helps them psychology and on the field too. They face each other 89 times in One-Day Internationals, in which New Zealand won 43 while England won 40 matches, where 2 matches tied and 4 matches ended up with no results. This will give New Zealand some sort of psychological edge over England but it all depends upon how both teams handle the pressure of the final and hold their nerves and how well they play their basic cricket.


England played really well in the semi-final and outclass the Australian cricket team. Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow, Joe Root, Jos Buttler, and Ben Stokes play a vital role in England’s batting line while Jofra Archer and Chris Woakes are the main bowlers of their bowling lineup.


New Zealand played exceptionally well and fought so hard on the semi-final against India the top team of the tournament. Martin Guptill, Ross Taylor, Kane Williamson are the main pillars of New Zealand batting line while Trent Boult, Matt Henry, Mitchell Santner, and Lockie Ferguson are the main players of the New Zealand team with the ball.


Although both teams have a winning momentum however at this time England has a little benefit over New Zealand that they beat New Zealand early in this tournament and beat it by a huge margin. But in cricket, every day is a new day. The way England beat Australia in the semi-final, they surely took point over New Zealand where they struggled and worked so hard against India to make them into finals. Hope so we have an interesting final to watch. Stay tuned…



It has been a rather joyful ride for the men in blue in the ICC Cricket World cup 2019. There were always one of the favorites to win the World cup right from the start. Sadly, Team India’s World cup dream has come to an end as they have lost to the underdog Blackcaps in the first semi-final of ICC Cricket World cup 2019.

New Zealand cricket team was coming to this Semifinals after losing their big matches against Pakistan, England, and Australia. They only qualified in the Semis due to slightly better run rate than team Pakistan. Both Pakistan and New Zealand had 11 points on the Points table. After Qualification to the Semis, and meeting the best side in the World cup (INDIA) was always going to be tough. However, to everyone’s surprise, the Blackcaps managed to stun team India in an emphatic manner.

Match started off rather awkwardly for New Zealand and after losing an early wicket they were playing rather extra cautiously on a slightly difficult pitch. The New Zealanders were finding it extremely difficult to play their shots, Thanks to some good bowling by Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Ravindra Jadeja, and Jasprit Bumrah. The match went to the reserve day as some heavy rain started pouring in during the last few overs of New Zealand’s batting. On resume of play on a reserved day (10-July). NZ was limited to a small total of 239.

India felt rather confident the night before that they have NZ under control and after limiting them to only 239 on a reserved day, they were rather happy of their efforts. However, NZ had other ideas!

New Zealand knew they had fewer runs to play with and came in full throttle against the men in blue. The first shock was delivered to India when the Man in form, “THE HITMAN” Rohit Sharma was dismissed on a mere 1 run early by Matt Henry. KL Rahul was next to go and then the big fish Virat Kohli also perished getting LBW on an incoming magic delivery by Trent Boult. The top 3 were down scoring just 1 run each. NEW ZEALAND KNEW THIS WAS THE MATCH!

India was playing 8 Batsmen; their batting starts from the Pacific and ends in Indian ocean but this 239 was proving to be an Ice Berg in their path to the Mega Final. Wickets kept on crumbling as NZ fast bowlers bowled tight lines, but the two set batsmen (Rishabh PANT and HARDICK) fell prey to Michell Santner This was the point where NZ really refused the hopes of India or should we say that Indian batters played into the NZ hands by playing the high risks shots at the wrong time.

MS Dhoni Stepped in with his ever-calm attitude and stopped the crumbling of Indian wickets and Ravindra Jadeja who was playing his first game after a long time in WC 2019 played a very good hand. At one-point Jadeja with his aggressive batting was looking to threaten the NZ dream, giving some breather to the Indian fans. Both batsmen brought the dead run chase alive and India was (for the first time) back in the game. Run Rate, however, was always going to be the issue and both the batsmen had to play some big shots which resulted in Jadeja getting out to Trent Boult. He played well for his 77 runs (59). It was now up to MS Dhoni all alone to get India to the finish line but once again the heavens favored NZ and DHONI fell short of crease taking a quick second run as he wanted to keep the strike. After Dhoni, the asking rate of 15 an over was too difficult for the tail-enders and both got out giving NZ an easy yet spectacular win over the mighty INDIANS. New Zealand is now into the finals for the second consecutive time.

ENGLAND vs AUSTRALIA match will decide who is going to face New Zealand in the finals.


AUS vs ENG LIve Cricket Second Semi FinalAUS vs ENG LIve Cricket Second Semi Final


After the surprising first semi-final of the world cup between India and New Zealand, in which the New Zealand cricket team take on the Indian cricket team and manage the scintillating win against India which surprises the whole cricket world. The 2nd semi-final of this ongoing mega-events is scheduled on Wednesday, 11th of July 2019 where England takes on Australia and both teams try their best to make their spot in the world cup finals in which they play against New Zealand, which is already in the finals of the world cup.

England has played 3 world cup finals (1979, 1987, and 1992) in which they fail to win a final and end up their tournament as the runners-up of the world cup. On the other hand, Australia played 7 world cup finals (1975, 1987, 1996, 1999, 2003, 2007, 2015) in which they brilliantly win the title 5 times (1987, 1999, 2003, 2007, 2015), most ODI world cup titles win among other teams. Let’s talk about some facts, figures, and findings and try to conclude which team has an edge over the other and has a better chance to win this 2nd semi-final of this world cup edition 2019.


In head to head, we easily find out which team has a better chance to take on by mean of pressure by winning more matches against each other. If we talk about Australia and England, they also have a rivalry in the cricket world. They started One Day International Cricket on the same day (5 January 1971). As Pakistan vs India rivalry is popular and famous among the world, the same as this England vs Australia rivalry name as ASHES is also famous in the cricket world in which both the teams play for the superiority. If we talk about head to head One Day Internationals between Australia and England, they played 147 matches against each other in which Australia dominating the stats and won 81 where England manage to win 61 of their matches, where 2 matches were tied and 3 matches ended up with no results. As with these records, surely Australia has an edge over England team in this all very important semi-final of the world cup, but the pressure of the world cup semi-final stage will play a vital role as we saw in yesterday’s match between India and New Zealand.


As we just look back into the history of the ODI world cups, England surely looks like hey was fails badly to handle the pressure of the world cup as they played 3 finals but didn’t able to make it a single time for their country and always ended up their tournament as runners-up. But Australia is totally dominating their records and stats, hey somehow able to manage the pressure very well and won 5 out of 7 ODI World Cup finals they played. If we talk about England vs Australia head to head in the ODI World Cup tournaments, they both play against each other 8 times in the world cup, where Australia also dominating by 6 wins over England, where England manage to win 2 matches against Australia in the world cups. Australia’s highest score against England in the World Cups is 342 while England had the highest world cup score against Australia is 247. The lowest total Australia had against England in the ODI world cups was 94 while England had the lowest total of 93 against Australia in the world cups. The stats, facts, and figures show surely that Australia is well above England in managing the pressure of the world cup stage and somehow manage to perform well against England in the world cups and rest of the cricket.


England in this world cup played some exceptionally good cricket and at some points, they played cricket which is average or below average, on summarizing this world cup, England team and fans surely have a rollercoaster world cup journey. Jofra Archer is the key player for England in their bowling line, where Jonny Bairstow, Eoin Morgan, Jos Buttler, and Ben Stokes play a vital role in the batting line for England win over Australia in this all very important world cup semi-final.


Australia is very consistent throughout this world cup and even the first team of this world cup to qualify for the world cup semi-finals. if we talk about this world cup, Australia has the best bowler of the tournament in the form of Mitchell Starc, who is the leading wicket-taker of this tournament, and surely the best weapon in their bowling lineup, while David Warner, Steve Smith, Aaron Finch leading their team in the batting lineup. All these players play a key role for Australia in this all very important world cup semi-final.


Nowadays, fielding is the most important department for any team to win this sort of important matches. The team who catch more catches, grab more chances in the field and manage the pressure well will have more chances to the important matches. Both England and Australia are very best in the fielding department. Now it is the matter of pressure which team plays better cricket under huge pressure.


England played their last two matches brilliantly where Jonny Bairstow played exceptionally well and stood like one man army for his team and end up group stage matches with a winning momentum while Australia lost their last match of the group stage against South Africa which will surely help England to take over Australia in this all very important semi-final.





As the world cup edition 2019 step up into the semifinals, the level of interest and curiosity of the fans and the followers’ increases. The group stage matches were quite unpredictable in the sense of results and the outcomes. As the world cup progressed and further move toward the knockout stage the pressure, intensity and hardworking to qualify for the semis were also increased by teams. Australia, India, England, and New Zealand are now the qualifiers of the world cup 2019 edition. Let’s take a quick look at the group stage matches team by team, that how every team progress in their group stage matches.


This was not the first world cup Afghanistan cricket team played but this world cup seems to look like a mighty nightmare for the Afghanistan cricket team. In 2015 edition of the world cup, Afghanistan somehow managed to win against Scotland in their group stage match but in this edition, they were looking so out of the color as they had some brilliant young talent in the form of the spin attack but they were failed badly to bring performance out of them. The new young captain may be the reason, but at this level, we hadn’t made such excuses. Afghanistan losses all its matches of the group stage and end the world cup at the bottom of the point table at 10th position with 0 points and have a net run rate of -1.322, although they fought really hard and played some good cricket but didn’t able to make an impact on this ongoing world cup. Hope so this young side will come in the next edition with good preparations and showcase their talent to the world of cricket.


With so many great names and a lot of experience in their side, West Indies looked so comfortable before starting of the mega event. They started the world cup with a dreamed victory over Pakistan with a massive margin. With this win, they looked so confident to further move on positively in the tournament. But unfortunately, their big names were unable to perform for their team in this all very important event. They only manage to win 2 out of their 9 group stage matches, which was against Pakistan and Afghanistan, while their match against South Africa was abandoned.  They hold the 9th position on the point table with 5 points and have a net run rate of -0.225.


After winning the tri-series against West Indies and Ireland, Bangladesh was very confident to give a tough time to their competitors, and they did it quite well in the mega event. After a winning start of the world cup, they didn’t manage to take their winning momentum forward into the tournament. But in the end, their experience players show some serious responsibilities and perform so well but unfortunately, they weren’t able to make into the semis. Bangladesh tried so hard and fought bravely in the event and somehow manage to win their 3 out of 5 group stage matches which were against South Africa, West Indies, and Afghanistan, while their match against Sri Lanka was abandoned without a ball bowled. They are at 8th position on the point table with 7 points and have a net run rate of -0.410.


A very balanced, talented and experience side by their facts, figures, and stats, but at the stage of the mega event, the always did exactly the same as they did this time. They didn’t manage to convert their talent, experience into winnings in the world cup for their team and for their nation. South African cricket team tag as a choker at the world cup stage and the aimed to remove this tag in this world cup but they totally failed to do so. South Africa manage to win 3 out of their 9 group stage matches, which were against Afghanistan, Sri Lanka, and Australia, while their match against West Indies was abandoned. They are at 7th position with 7 points and have a net run rate of -0.030.


Sri Lanka was very off color during this world cup. Their experienced players like Angelo Mathews, Lasith Malinga, and Thisara Perera were not up to the mark in this tournament. They amaze England by their performance in which their most experienced player Lasith Malinga took responsibility to take their team across the line. But this sort of single performance didn’t take you so long in this sort of tournament, where team efforts, and consistency matters the most. Sri Lanka somehow manages to win 3 out of their 9 group stage matches, which were against Afghanistan, England, and West Indies, while their 2 matches against Pakistan and Bangladesh were abandoned. They are at 6th position on the point table with 8 points and have a net run rate of -0.919.


Pakistan was not among the favorites for winning the world cup but their tag of unpredictability made them quite favorites to qualify for the semis. As Pakistan had a golden chance to prepare their side according to the conditions in England as they played their scheduled series before the world cup against England in England. The outcomes were not as expected by the Pakistan cricket team and they stepped up in the world cup with a losing streak of 10 matches. West Indies demolish their batting line badly by their quick bouncers and end up the match quite comfortably in 14th over. Although Pakistan comes back strongly and defeats England the most favorites of the world cup, their unpredictability and inconsistency were the problem and damage them quite badly. Somehow at the end of the tournament, they got their winning momentum and win their last 4 matches. Pakistan was unable to qualify for the semis just because of their bad net run rate. Pakistan wins 5 out of their 9 group stage matches, which were against England, South Africa, New Zealand, Afghanistan, and Bangladesh, while their match against Sri Lanka was abandoned which hurt them so badly. They are at 5th position on the point table with 11 points and have a net run rate of -0.430.


A very well prepared, balanced, experienced, and talented side for this world cup edition. Pacers like Trent Boult, Tim Southee and batsmen like Kane Williamson, Ross Taylor, and Martin Guptill have the capacity to make their team into the semis and even to win the world cup. They compete for the 4th position on the point table with Pakistan and ultimately they won it on the better net run rate and make into the semi-finals of the world cup 2019. New Zealand wins their 5 out of their 9 group stage matches, which were against Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Afghanistan, South Africa, and West Indies, while their match against India was abandoned. they are at 4th position on the point table with 11 points and have a net run rate of +0.175, which made them prior to Pakistan and able to grab a semis spot.


The most favorite to win this world cup. They stepped up in the world cup with a well prepared and balanced side with some amazing young talent in the form of Jofra Archer. They start quite well but they amazed by the Pakistan cricket team and after hat the comeback quite nicely and then at the crucial moments of the world cup they loss against Sri Lanka which was the major setback. At that point, the team which was favorite at the start of the tournament was now looking so difficult to move into the semis. But their win against India and New Zealand made them able to grab their ticket to the semis. England wins 6 out of their 9 group stage matches, which were against South Africa, Bangladesh, West Indies, Afghanistan, India, and New Zealand. They are at 3rd position on the point table with 12 points and have a net run rate of +1.152.


Australia as always, played sensible and basic cricket and stick to their plans and proved that they are best for the world cups. Australia is also favorites to win this world cup by the majority of fans and the cricket experts. Inclusion of Steve Smith and David Warner into the side made a huge impact and gave backbone strength to the Australian side. Performance of the Australians in this world cup proved that they rightly deserve those world cup that they won in the past and they rightly deserve to be one of the favorites of this time. Amazingly Australia was the first team to qualify for the semi-final in this world cup. Australia wins 7 out of their 9 group stage matches, which were against Afghanistan, West Indies, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, England, and New Zealand. They are at 2nd position on the point table with 14 points and have a net run rate of +0.868.


India under Virat Kohli’s captaincy played exceptionally well and proved that they work so hard and how mentally and temperamentally strong they are for the world cup. Rohit Sharma the hero of the Indian side in this world cup scored 5 centuries which was love to see. Shami took hat trick of wickets as he is the second Indian to do so. India was the second team to qualify for the semi-finals as they win 7 out of their 9 group stage matches, which were against South Africa, Australia, Pakistan, Afghanistan, West Indies, Bangladesh, and Sri Lanka, while their match against New Zealand was abandoned. They hold the top rank of the point table with 15 points and have a net run rate of +0.809.
