Morgan says England must adapt or die as India test looms

Both Pakistan and England need to win both their remaining games now, if they would like to make it to the tournament semi-finals.

However, even if they defeat Afghanistan and Bangladesh, it might not be enough as they will have to rely on the results of other matches.

"The ICC has confirmed that the Event Technical Committee of the ICC Men's Cricket World Cup 2019 has approved Kasun Rajitha as a replacement player for Nuwan Pradeep in the Sri Lanka squad for the remainder of the tournament", said the ICC in a release.

Right-arm seamer Rajitha has taken five wickets in his six ODI appearances, the last of which came against South Africa in March.

Sri Lanka must win its last two games against West Indies and India to have any chance of reaching the semifinals. Their bowling has looked ok with all their spinners performing. New Zealand deliberately lost to Pakistan (in the league stage). He's been fit for the last four games and sat them out with fast bowler Tim Southee. An abysmal net run rate does them no favours.

"It's been a bigger challenge in this World Cup than previous bilateral series". World Cup 2019 season has been very good for the Indian Cricket Fans. Also, with Babar Azam coming to his usual best, one can expect Pakistan to outstage Afghanistan.

Australia and New Zealand are no strangers to humdingers in the World Cup, with the two sides winning a classic each when they faced off on home territory four years ago.

The latest loss to Australia where they crumbled in a chase of 286 has now put England in a precarious spot.

"We are now far better than Pakistan in cricket & they should ask us for technical coaching & support for the betterment of their cricket", Asadullah is reported to have said.

"I think the great thing with New Zealand is that they fight and scrap every single game, regardless of whether it's a World Cup final or it's a club game", he added. Bangladesh has to play against Pakistan and India. While Australia have already qualified, New Zealand and India are nearly certain to make it unless they lose all of their remaining matches, which is quite unlikely.

Australia's first-wicket pair have been central to their success at the World Cup, with Finch and David Warner having scored 657 runs together in eight matches, including Saturday's fixture, at an average of 82.12.
