The semi-final matches fixture of cricket world cup were not confirmed until the last league game between Australia and South Africa. Australia and India were in the race for the first spot in points table. India defeated Sri Lanka successfully in their last league match meanwhile title defenders Australia suffered 10 runs defeat against Proteas.
Both India and New Zealand will play each other first time in the tournament as their league match was washed out due to rain. Hence it will be an interesting contest to see which team will register victory and through to the final of 2019 world cup. Remember, India have won two ICC world cup trophies in 1983 and 2011 meanwhile Blackcaps are yet to win a world cup.
