2019 Cricket World Cup knockout stage

The knockout stage of the 2019 Cricket World Cup will see two semi-finals, with the winners of each progressing to the final at Lord’s. The first semi-final is being held at Old Trafford in Manchester and the second semi-final will be held at Edgbaston in Birmingham just as they did back in 1999, with all of the knockout games having a reserve day. It will be the third time Edgbaston has hosted a World Cup semi-final and the fourth semi-final to be held at Old Trafford – a record for a World Cup venue.

On 25 June 2019, Australia became the first team to qualify for the semi-finals, after beating England at Lord’s.[1] India became the second team to qualify for the semi-finals, after they defeated Bangladesh at Edgbaston on 2 July 2019.[2] The following day saw tournament hosts England become the third team to qualify for the semi-finals, after they beat New Zealand at the Riverside Ground.[3] New Zealand were the fourth and final team to qualify for the semi-finals, after Pakistan were unable to increase their net run rate sufficiently enough in their match against Bangladesh at Lord’s.[4]

The first semi-final is being played between India and New Zealand at Old Trafford, while the second semi-final will be played between Australia and England at Edgbaston.[5] On 7 July 2019, the International Cricket Council (ICC) appointed the umpires for the two matches.[6] If a reserve day comes into play for either semi-final, the match will be resumed from the previous day and not restarted.[7] If the match ends in a tie, a Super Over will be used to determine which team progresses to the final.[7] In the event of no play on the scheduled day and reserve day, the team that finished higher in the group stage will progress to the final.[7]

Due to persistent rain, the India-New Zealand semi-final was suspended at New Zealand’s 47th over, and will continue on 10 July.[8]
