Players that could determine 2019 World Cup semis
The semi-final stage of the ICC World Cup 2019 has finally arrived. After a long league stage battle, we finally have four teams vying for a place in the finale. On Tuesday, India face New Zealand at Old Trafford. And then Australia lock horns with England at Edgbaston on Thursday. Here are the players that could determine CWC 19 semis.
Australia's Warner and Starc could determine outcome against England
Title holders Australia have two of their star players ruling the roost in World Cup 2019. Mitchell Starc is the leading wicket-taker in the tournament (26 scalps). The left-arm pacer's ability to make an impact anytime during a match is phenomenal. David Warner with 638 runs has taken his batting to another level. He already has three tons and can be menacing for England.
England's Roy and Bairstow can light up Edgbaston
When it comes to deciding a crunch game, England's openers Jason Roy and Jonny Bairstow could be too hot to handle on their day. Both are middling the ball well and the idea is to give England a massive start upfront. England have regained form and the two are firing from all cylinders. They have what it takes to unsettle Aussie bowlers.
Rohit and Bumrah the match-winners for India
Rohit Sharma has batted like a champion in CWC 19. The leading run-scorer has amassed five centuries already with three coming on the trot. He can set the tempo in Manchester against a good quality Kiwi bowlers. Jasprit Bumrah's presence is monumental. He can win India the game with his brilliance with the ball. His death bowling is the best in the world.
Elegant Williamson and fiery Boult are New Zealand's trump cards
Both Kane Williamson's technique and calmness make his stand out from the rest. He is truly an elegant player, who isn't a fan of the modern day slam bang. Williamson has led Kiwis from the front with two tons under his belt. Trent Boult is a champion bowler. The left-arm pacer can stand up once again and dictate the game in crunch moments.
