The International Cricket Council (ICC) on Sunday named match officials for the semfiinals of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. While India will take on New Zealand in the first semifinal on July 9 in Manchester, England will face Australia in the second semifinal on July 11 at Edgnaston.

India defeated Sri Lanka by seven wickets in their last league-stage game while Australia lost by ten runs against South Africa.

Australia‘s defeat helped India leapfrog to the top of the points table and set up the semfiinal clash against the Kane Williamson-led side. Australia, who finished the league stage at the second place will be up against the third placed Eoin Morgan and Co.
