Former England skipper Michael Vaughan has predicted the other three semi-finalists that can join Australia in the last four of the World Cup. Vaughan believes India, New Zealand and hosts England will be the other three teams. India and New Zealand have 11 points each and they look set to make it to the last four.
On the other hand, England has 10 points under their bag after five wins from eight matches. India has played seven matches and they have won five games with one no result. Thus, the Men in Blue occupy the second position in the points table. Furthermore, New Zealand also has 11 points under their belt after five wins and one no result from eight matches.
Michael Vaughan makes his prediction.
In fact, Michael Vaughan had earlier tweeted that the team which beats India will go on to win the tournament. England was able to get the better of Virat Kohli’s men as they defeated them by 31 runs at Edgbaston, Birmingham. The English side was able to end the unbeaten run of the Indian side.
Australia is playing some quality cricket as the defending champions have ticked the right boxes. Hitherto, Aaron Finch led side is the only side which has confirmed its qualification for the semifinals berth. In fact, Australia has also confirmed their top two finish after seven wins from eight matches. Thus, they have 14 points under their bag.
Meanwhile, New Zealand has lost its last two matches. The Kiwis were thrashed by Pakistan and Australia and would aim to confirm their qualification when they will take on England.
