MUMBAI, Nov. 12, 2023 (TBINN)
Now it is confirmed! India will face New Zealand in the semi-finals of Cricket World Cup 2023 at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Wednesday.
In the other semi-final, South Africa will face Australia at the Eden Gardens on Thursday.
The semi-final line-up was confirmed after Babar Azam-led Pakistan got officially eliminated from World Cup 2023 after failing to chase a huge 338-run target in 6.4 overs against England, which was always going to be an impossible task.
After New Zealand’s win over Sri Lanka on Thursday, the 2019 Cricket World Cup runners-up had all but assured themselves a semi-final spot. However, Pakistan and Afghanistan still had mathematical chance to qualify for the last four. They both needed to win their last round-robin matches by humongous margins to have a shot at a semi-final spot.
