New Zealand to tour Sri Lanka after World Cup

Cricket World Cup 2019 Current points table

And if Pakistan bat first they need to make sure that they beat Bangladesh by a margin of 316 runs!

While India, Australia and England had already booked their place in the semis, New Zealand were left to wait till the end of Pakistan's last league fixture against Bangladesh to confirm their spot in the top-four. But just a win won't do for Pakistan since they are behind the Kiwis on run rate.

New Zealand lost to England by 119 runs and they now have a net run rate of +0.175. Ross Taylor has had a modest World Cup and much as Colin de Grandhomme and James Neesham make valuable contributions, New Zealand do not look the best when compared to the other three teams.

However, Sarfraz Ahmed's captaincy is in danger while the World Cup will also mark an end to the one-day global (ODI) careers of veterans Mohammad Hafeez and Shoaib Malik.

"We knew that these two games were must-win games if we were to give ourselves the best opportunity to get into the semi-finals because we knew the performances in the last couple of games hadn't been up to scratch", said Bairstow.

Serena Williams to team up with Andy Murray in Wimbledon mixed doubles
Speaking before the partnership was confirmed, Murray said he would relish a partnership with the former world No. 1. She added: "Above all, he really stands out, he really speaks up about women's issues no matter what".

Will any of these things play in the mind of India and Australia as they play against Sri Lanka and South Africa respectively? Both have one group game each to play. When the viewing figures to date were put to Plunkett on BBC Radio 5 Live, he said: "We feel like we've built something special here as a team. It doesn't work for us and it won't win us the World Cup". "I suppose we have rode the rollercoaster of playing well, playing bad and playing good again, so particularly our bowlers, they need a rest, they need to get away".

With an eight-day turnaround before their semi-final at Edgbaston, the team will have a few days rest now before re-convening.

"If we get a little bit of luck going our way, and they continue to be really positive in their mindset around how they're going to play, then it doesn't really matter what's happened in the past".

They went down to Australia by 41 runs in their fourth match.

The wicket-keeper batsman, however, added that his side will go all-out against Bangladesh at Lord's on Friday to end the campaign on a high note. "Luckily I still have another chance for another innings or two in the World Cup".
