Kia ora, good evening and welcome to Newshub's live coverage of the Cricket World Cup semi-final between top qualifiers India and the Blackcaps at Edgbaston. Last time these two sides met, they didn't get to take the field, as their group encounter was rained out at Trent Bridge. The time before that, New Zealand actually beat their highly rated rivals in a warm-up match before the tournament. But India had the Blackcaps' measure, when they visited New Zealand last summer and have dominated this event, losing only to hosts England in pool play. Newshub newbie gets absolutely schooled in cricket rules Kohli hints at mystery bowler against Blackcaps Blackcaps skipper plays down underdog status They have established themselves as the team to beat, with opening batsman Rohit Sharma compiling five centuries, emerging as the top runscorer and trailing only NZ skipper Kane Williamson in averages. Sharma's form has reduced captain Virat Kohli to a support role, perhaps the best indication of … [Read more...] about Cricket World Cup 2019: Semi-final live updates

21 May 2019 • 10:00am Cricket World Cup 2019 fixtures and TV schedule Cricket World Cup 2019 latest odds Liam Dawson came in from the cold to take his place in England's World Cup squad, with Joe Denly and David Willey missing the cut. Dawson, the Hampshire spinner, played the last of his three one-day internationals in October and was not involved in the recent 4-0 series win over Pakistan. Both Denly and Willey were named in last month's provisional 15 but both men have seen their tournament dreams dashed. Denly had been lined up as a utility option in the squad, a flexible batsman and a late-blooming leg-spinner, but England have used him sparingly as a bowler. Head coach Trevor Bayliss has admitted that Dawson's slow left-arm spin is more reliable and a strong show in the Royal London Cup has pushed him over the line. Willey, meanwhile, has paid for the emergence of the exciting Jofra Archer. The Barbados-born quick was yet to make his debut when the … [Read more...] about England name Cricket World Cup 2019 squad: live updates
Jofra Archer has completed his eleventh hour World Cup dream with selection in the final 15 ahead of David Willey. They are both seamers in name, but Archer's extra pace and X-factor ability that has wowed fans in the three games he has played so far should have propelled him into England's first choice eleven. Willey misses out as the first pace bowling reserve with Tom Curran, Mark Wood and Liam Plunkett all grabbing a spot in the squad. At a sun-kissed Lord's with eyes of the world's media on him, national selector Ed Smith named Sussex's Archer among the final 15, despite him only becoming available last month. For all the planning and preparation that has gone into turning England into the No.1 ODI side in the world, this is still an unexpected bonus that should give the home side and even better shot at World Cup glory. It is desperately cruel luck for Willey, who has played in 46 of England's 88 matches since the last World Cup, but with little swing available for him, the … [Read more...] about England squad for ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 confirmed as
England have confirmed the chance for 'talented' and 'exciting' Jofra Archer to stake his claim for a World Cup place by naming him in their squads to face Ireland and Pakistan. National selector Ed Smith revealed the 15 man preliminary World Cup squad at Lord's, as reported by Mirror Sport, with Archer and Chris Jordan added to the list for the Pakistan series. It means that the Barbados born 24-year-old could have a maximum of six one day caps under his belt before going into a World Cup that England are hot favourites to win. Despite having an English father and a British passport, the Sussex fast bowler was still required to complete a three year residency qualification for England after representing the West Indies U19 team back in 2013. Now that he is available, England have picked him at the first available opportunity and he has the chance to try and replicate his T20 franchise brilliance on the international stage. “The selection panel has been impressed with Jofra … [Read more...] about England announce Cricket World Cup 2019 squad
