New Zealand were able to stun India in the semi-final as they defended a mediocre total of 240 runs. The Kiwi bowling lineup destroyed the Indian top-order as they dismissed Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, and KL Rahul for just five runs on the board.

Australia made one change in their playing XI from the last match against South Africa. Peter Handscomb comes in place of injured Usman Khawaja. On the other hand, England are playing with the same team as in the last match.
