Australia left England on the brink of the Cricket World Cup

By the time they left, only the sound of the Australian celebrations remaining after the 64-time victory over England had earned a place in the World Cup Cricket semifinal.

Facing the English opponent for the first time since returning from the Prohibition 12 months for forging the ball, both men came out booing and joking, although the strongest was reserved for Smith.

Not that extra attention from the crowd appears to annoy either man. Warner hit 53 to become the top scorer in the tournament, while Smith, who was fired was organized with a great deal of joy from those in the stands, fighting to 38.

Both men played their part in Australia reaching 285-7 from their 50 before helping bypass England for 221.

Australia’s David Warner has received several sleighs from home supporters.For England, there is still much disappointment. The third defeat in seven group matches makes participating in four finals of the World Cup Cricket 2019 in serious danger.

Now they have to beat either India or New Zealand, both unbeaten in the tournament so far, to ensure it doesn’t suffer the same fate as the last time the tournament was held in 1999 when it was fell in the group stage.

As usual in an international competition, the ability to reach the peak at the right time is very important. For England, having dominated the single-day cricket for the past few years, it seems the peak is now fading out of sight.

Pressed by two disappointing defeats by Pakistan and Sri Lanka, Britain resisted that from the start when Australia started quickly at Lord.

Aaron Finch, captain of Australia, had a century and his opening collaboration with 123 with Warner allowed the visitors to take control of the competition.

England, winning 10 out of 12 matches a day before Australia, was rumbling. Poor protection, dropped catches and inaccurate bowling cause it to face a tough struggle.

Pursuing 286 to win, the British mission became impossible after losing three wicks in just 26 runs. Ben Stokes gave some resistance by hitting 89 but once he was chased by Mitchell Starc, England’s hopes of an unquestionable victory were all but over.

More worrying for England would be the spectacle of Bangladesh, a point behind, going up on the tracks. Sri Lanka, two points behind but with a game in hand, will also like its chances in the semi-final.

It was unthinkable just a few weeks ago – that the top-ranked host country could not put out the last four – was now becoming a more realistic possibility.

The best and worst opening pairs in ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 (Part 2)

4. Australia

Hopefully, Aaron Finch and David Warner will be responsible for Australia’s attack at the World Cup. Warner Lien’s inclusion is an absolute boon for men from the bottom up, but he will need his captain to continue.

Finch is dangerous in front of a new ball, but sometimes tends to throw it away. Australia will hope he enters his A game in the UK.

3. South Africa

Can South Africa break their World Cup world this time? If left to their openers, they can only do so. Quinton de Kock and Hashim Amla seem to be the first choice for the Proteas couple, and we couldn’t ask for a better duo.

Quinton is a young and fearless beginner who is afraid to use all his power, while Amla can control the ship with delicate skills. Perhaps chokers are no more?

2. India

The 2013 championship was a turning point in the careers of Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan when they realized how effective they could be as a door opener.

This time too, India will depend on their friendship and understanding to give them an incredible start in the UK like they did here about six years ago.

1. England

Jonny Bairstow and Jason Roy. Enough said. England have no talent in their current ODI squad and are the favorites to win at home.

Bairstow and Roy have put their excellent IPL form into the series against Pakistan and it is unlikely that any team will be able to constantly stop their responsibilities at the World Cup. Expect some great points from this cooperation.

Mafia manipulates cricket in India (Part 1)

Mafia has turned cricket ball tournament in India, which has the biggest attraction in the world, into a fake contest to profit “gigantic” through the illegal betting market.

The fertile market of the mafia

Currently, cricket tournaments are on a downward trend, including in England, the country where the sport was born. However, in India, cricket has a strong attraction, even seen as a “religion”.

As described by the BBC, cricket creates a strange national unity in India, because when a match takes place, the roads become empty, the wedding must be postponed, even the activities of hospitals or congressional meetings were also rescheduled. The whole country, from the poor to the rich, the rural or the urban, the Hindus or Muslims, etc. put aside their work to watch the struggles.

The Indian Premier League (IPL) professional cricket tournament is held every year with 11 participating clubs with an audience equal to 10 tournaments in other countries combined. This “crazy” attraction has helped IPL in 2014 gain a brand value of up to US $ 7.2 billion and is the main source of support for the International Cricket Council (ICC).

Meanwhile, since its inception in 2008, IPL has created a betting market with revenue of about US $ 60 billion, but half of that has fallen to illegal betting lines via websites from Karachi. (Pakistan) to Mumbai (India), Hong Kong and Dubai (UAE). However, hidden behind the glitz, the results of the IPL competitions are mostly orchestrated by the notorious mafia gangs in India and Asia.

Semi-explosive scandal 

In May, Indian cricket fans were outraged when the IPL scandals began to come to light after a series of arrests. First, Dehli police proceeded to arrest three stars of the Rajasthan Royals Club, Sreesanth, Ajit Chandila and Ankeet Chavan immediately after a match in Mumbai due to the result of the settlement line.
