The pitch is expected to play slow and low and we might once again see a low scoring game. This is a decider and we don't expect teams to tinker much with their playing 11. Bit of light rain is also expected for this clash.
Weather shouldn't cause any concern to both teams for this semi clash. England are likely to go unchanged, while Pakistan might get tempted to play an extra spinner. We feel picking 7 players from England will help.
The weather is expected to be pretty ok for this knockout clash. Both teams unlikely to make wholesale changes. Mohd Hafeez could go out and for Lanka, Sandakan might get a look in. Tharanga once again won't play this game due to ban.
Another batting wicket expected at the Oval and both teams might make a change or two to their line-up. South Africa might bring in Andile Phehlukwayo for Parnell and India are likely to bring in R Ashwin for this knockout clash.
Australia might get tempted to bring in Chris Lynn in place of the underperforming Aaron Finch. On the other hand, the English could give either a Bairstow or Billings a chance in place of the out of form Jason Roy.
Mohammad Shehzad will not be available for this series. There is some rain expected in St Lucia and the wicket is likely to play slow as well. The Windies might give all-rounder Roston Chase a chance.
New Zealand might bring in Latham for Ronchi. Jimmy Neesham could also make way for Colin de Gradhomme. On the other hand, Bangladesh might continue to experiment with their bowling. Also, rain is predicted in Cardiff.
WHILE INDIA will be going into the game after a comfortable victory over Pakistan, Sri Lanka will be heading into it following a comprehensive defeat against South Africa.
Wahab Riaz won't be featuring in the tournament anymore and we feel Junaid Khan might be given a chance in this game. Also, the batting order for Pakistan might see some changes.
Afghanistan have already lost the series and they are likely to continue experimenting with their squad. The Windies too might give their reserve players a chance. We expect the wicket to be sluggish and the slower bowlers will have a role to play.
