The new format for the Cricket World Cup 2019 has created a lots of excitement for the final week despite of the washed out games as almost 7 teams were in the contest for the semi finals as final week came on.
But unfortunately Sri Lanka and Bangladesh had to get away from the contest although they have played brilliant cricket throughout the tournament.If not for 2 washed out games Sri Lanka had and one washed out game Bangladesh had,things could have been different as both the teams looked well on course for semi finals in the tournament.
Australia and India has already sealed their semi final spots and now the contest is between England ,Pakistan and New Zealand for the final 2 spots.
Talking about the game today,it is a must win for the England team as they are having 10 points under their name.Win today can surely seal their position at number 3 for the World Cup spot.But still they can qulify eventhough they loose the match if Pakistan loose to Bangladesh.
In Pakistans point of view they should now hope for New Zealand to beat England and if that happens,just a win in Bangladesh match will seal their place at semis.Otherwise they will have to win the Bangladesh match by a big margin that depends on net run rate after Today's game.So they can eliminate New Zealand.
It is going to be a never ending battle until the final day of league stage and we invite you all to watch all the matches live from our Live Score Box.
