Three more matches and the world will know, on whose hands will be the most coveted ICC Cricket World Cup 2015. After an intense battle of over a month between 14 teams, we have the final four. The four, who have certainly been better than the eliminated 10, and are also the top four ranked in the ICC One-Day Internationals (ODI) ranking.

On Tuesday, co-hosts New Zealand, who topped the Pool A and beat West Indies in the quarter-final, will clash against the AB de Villiers’ led South Africa, who finished second in Pool B and beat a competitive Sri Lankan side in the quarter-final. New Zealand have the momentum going and are playing brilliant cricket but South Africa have enough class to beat any side. Both the sides will clash at Auckland and for the winner, it will be their first time to the World Cup final.

On Thursday, defending champions India face hosts Australia in Sydney. Australia, the ranked one side in ODIs, are favourites for the competition but India have won all their matches convincingly and have been the best team in the tournament along with Australia.

Deservingly the best four sides made it to the last four and only two will go ahead to play the grand finale at Melbourne on March 29.
