England have shown amazing grit and belief in their last two games to qualify for the semi-finals of the ongoing World Cup. The hosts were pushed to the corner after losing to Sri Lanka and Australia and were left with winning their last couple of matches at any cost to make it to top four. Eoin Morgan and his men stepped up to the task to beat India and then thumped New Zealand to confirm their semi-final berth.

The top four are almost finalised now unless Pakistan beats Bangladesh by an unimaginable margin to knock New Zealand out. At the moment, it looks like India will face England in the semi-final and Michael Vaughan is excited about the clash. No wonder the momentum is with the Brits and having beaten the Men in Blue at the same ground on Sunday, they will be confident of repeating the heroics again.

However, there is still a chance that India will not face England in the semi-final. If they manage to beat Sri Lanka in their final league game and South Africa defeat Australia, then the arch-rivals will face each other in the knockouts. India and New Zealand then will battle it out in the first semi-final.

Twitter predicts India to knock England out

Michael Vaughan who was extremely critical about England’s performances in the league stage is now backing them to win the World Cup. He praised the way the team played in its last two matches and felt they showed great mental strength to overcome the tough days. “Great performance .. Strong mentality over the last few days .. Bring on #India in Birmingham .. #

The Indian fans begged to differ and filled the comments section by predicting India’s victory in the semi-final. Some of the fans even called the England team as the flat track bullies and believed India will win the toss and knock them out of the tournament.
