In Semi- Finals:
England Vs Australia:
England has been in position from where it cannot afford to lose for the last three matches now and that seems to have switched on something within this team. There is no other option for team England except winning, England has chosen to stick with its attacking instincts and is now the closest it has been to winning the Cricket World Cup in the last 27 years.
The total change of the fortune of team England was the back of Jason Roy to the team. He has four 50 plus scores in six innings and has 426 runs to his name already. Jonny Bairstow has 496 from 10 innings while Joe Root has 549 from 10. Jason Roy has been more aggressive and left more impact than any other team member of England.
England entered into the World Cup final with a victory over Australia with eight wickets at Edgbaston on Thursday, after yet another century opening partnership from Jason Roy (85) and Jonny Bairston (34).
Five times recorded champions Australia was beaten by England and were bowled out for 223, Steve Smith making 85 against quality bowling with Chris Woakes taking 3- 20.
England’s opening pair have their fourth consecutive centuries partnership, reaching 124 before Bairstow was trapped lbw in 18th over. England qualified for the world Cup final for the first time since 1992.
England’s Batting is the strongest in the cricket world cup 2019. Roy, Bairstow, Root, Strokes, Morgan, and Buttler all are in very good form.
The bowling has been led by Chris Woakes in the last few matches. He and Jofra Archer have been able to pick up early wickets and set the opposition back. Adil Rashid picked up two very important wickets in the semi- final and with the Lord’s surface giving some help the spinners in recent times, he could have a critical role to play in this final as well.
This was Australia’s 8th semi- finale in world cup history . But this is their first ever lost in semis. Before today Australia was the only unbeaten team in Cricket World Cup semis. Australia tried to target Morgan with short balls here but the result was zero.
FOUR! that was the end of England Vs Australia, Morgan puts it away for a boundary and England has its absolute step towards the semi- finals. They win this match easily over Australia by 8 wickets.
New Zealand Vs India:
India and New Zealand were played at Nottingham on June 13 , in the league play of ICC World Cup but that match was abondoned due to rain.
As the first inning was going very good according to Indian captain, but in the 2nd inning it was a bad day for India. New Zealand gave a target of 239 and India made 221 for all out.
New Zealand also has the best bowling attack in this world cup 2019 in terms of economy rate and average. Lockie Ferguson, Mitchell Santner, and the two all- rounders are all in good bowling form.
The New Zealand Batting did quite well, all things considered against India. They have taken the game by some early wickets and then consolidated with Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor in the middle. New Zealand lost three matches in the middle and looked very beatable. It is not a perfect side and is definitely beatable. The same is true with the England and this what New Zealand must remember.
India and New Zealand have faced each other seven times in a World Cup with the Black Caps holding a 4-3 advantages. Here’s a look at the meetings between the 1983 and 2011 champions India against the 2015 runner ups:
1975 World Cup: India lost to New Zealand by 4 wickets.
1979 World Cup: India lost New Zealand by 8 wickets.
1987 World Cup: India beat New Zealand by 9 wickets.
1992 World Cup: India lost to New Zealand by 4 wickets.

New Zealand was in the 2015 final World Cup as well. This is now a second chance for them to win the world cup, after the great hard work they have managed to reach to the world cup, a great achievement for a cricketing country with less population.
There is no reason why England should not win the match. It has a settled team that is going to benefit them in the final. England has shown us in the tournament that it is generally very good but can have some good days as well. This match is what the England team has been working towards for the last four years and it is time to reap the reward.
