The semifinalists of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 would compete for the finals spot in the coming days as Australia would take on arch rivals England while India would lock horns with New Zealand.
However, former Australian skipper Ian Chappell is not happy with the final four of the tournament as he feels that the unpredictability has been taken out by the qualification of sides which were being deemed favourites at the start of World Cup.
“No outsider made the final four. This is confirmation that money can buy happiness. India, Australia and England are the three most financially stable boards, and New Zealand have, for some time, been one of the more efficient,” he said in his article.
The former cricketer also believes that the game of cricket needs a jolt pretty soon in order to regain its unpredictability and the thrill that comes with it or otherwise things would get quite boring in the future.
