We also have a match scheduled today that is merely a formality - New Zealand vs Bangladesh. Watch T20 world cup 2016 matches live streaming on HotStar and Star Sports HD network in India.
New Zealand has won all their matches so far and they were the first to qualify for the semi-finals. They defeated teams like India, Australia and Pakistan which shows the strong form they are in. Williamson has lead the team well and he has been well supported by his team mates. Their weakness has been their spin bowling but this time their strength is spin. Although they haven't scored too many big scores, but their spinners have been able to curtail the opposition for low scores too.
Bangladesh have won none so far. Infact they managed to snatch a defeat out of a straight win. They were comfortably cruising to victory against India with ample number of wickets in hand. Some over confidence and rash shots lead them to a loss by just one run. That was a pure nail biter and that gave Indian team a life line to stay in contention for the semi-finals.
England has done a better job than expected. They got a disappointing start when they lost a match against West Indies even after scoring a 180 plus score. They bounced back as hard as possible by beating South Africa. That was an unbelievable chase by England. They chased down 230 which is a record in ICC World T20 history. They would love to see South Africa lost against West Indies in the Super 10s match. If this happens, they just have to beat Sri Lanka and reach the semis.
Sri Lanka has slimmest of chances of making it to the semis. But it looks really hard. The defending champions never looked impressive. They haven't found the right combination and now it looks really late. The biggest blow in their arm was the injury to Lasith Malinga who pulled out of the T20 World Cup. If they beat England, they would have win to feel proud about.
We will provide previews of next matches. Watch the matches live on HotStar in India. And yes, don't miss the exciting match which is also a virtual quarter final - India vs Australia live on HotStar!
