After a plethora of entertainment including 45 games, ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 event has finalized its four semi-finalists – India, Australia, England and New Zealand. In the knock-out stage, India will lock horns against Kiwis in Manchester while Australia is set to take on arch-rivals England in Birmingham.
Just ahead of these epic clashes, it is important to examine the semi-finals record of these teams. Australia, without a shadow of doubt, seems to be the most prolific team as Kangaroos haven’t lost a semi-final yet in their history. Playing 7 semis, the yellow team won 6 while 1 was tied. After Australia, England is the second best semi-finals team with 3 wins in 5 games.
Indian team sits at third position claiming glory in 3 of their 5 semi-finals. Coming to New Zealand, this bunch contains an awful record as Kiwis only won 1 of their 7 semi-finals till date. However, the solitary victory came against South Africa in the last edition of the mega-event which perhaps can boost them ahead of their game against a sturdy Indian unit. While cricket enthusiasts are predicting Australia and India playing the final, you can never rule out surprises when it comes to major tournaments.
