Yesterday, Australia smashed 388 runs. New Zealand take the game to the very last delivery. They scored 383! That's the most incredible chase for a team that ended up losing. It shows why the Kiwis made the last two World Cup finals.
Today, India scored 229 runs. That's a solid T20 score. England should have chased that with plenty of overs to spare. Instead, the World Champions lost by an unbelievable 100 runs! Root and Stokes, the two rocks, scored a combined zero. Forget fighting for a semi-final spot, they're officially the worst team in the entire tournament.
That difference between the chases by England and New Zealand is stunning.
The likely semi-finalists: India, South Africa, Australia, and New Zealand. There's potential for drama as a few other teams like Pakistan can bump into the top four but that'll require a series of convincing wins.
