Live Cricket Streaming Star Sports Information

The picture is getting a bit clear now. We now have couple of teams that have already qualified for the semi finals while we have still two berths vacant. That adds to the excitement isn't it? Some do or die matches to follow. England takes on Netherlands today which doesn't hold any importance to the semi final berths. But the second match holds a lot of significance and Sri Lanka will battle it out in a do or die affair with the New Zealand team for a semi final berth. Indian fans can catch the whole action streamed live on Star Sports. They can also enjoy live TV telecast on Star Sports 1, 2, 3 and HD1 and HD2 channels.

England vs Netherlands preview

England would consider themselves unlucky because they scored at a rate of eight plus in this tournament, yet the find themselves eliminated! The reason is simple. The bowlers couldn't content the opposition and they lost matches. England displayed a brave act against Srilanka when Hales hit a ton to chase 190 plus score. But they narrowly missed against the South Africans to see themselves eliminated.

Netherlands has nothing to lose. They would feel proud that they defeated England in 2009 T20 world cup. They would be pumped up to repeat that feat today. England would not take Netherlands lightly but they would also wish to square things up today. Netherlands played exceptionaly well against the South Africans and the New Zealanders. But they were completely out of sorts against the Sri Lankan team.

Bowling department is the weakness for both the teams. So let us see how the batsmen could capitalise today.

Srilanka vs New Zealand preview

This match proves how important it is to win all the matches in this tournament. Srilanka looked unbeatable and deserve a place in the semis. But just one loss against England may now cost them a berth in the semis. Just one loss can do this harm! Srilanka with a win today will qualify and a loss may end their dream of making it to the knock outs.

Same is the case with New Zealand. A win here will take them to the semi finals. South Africa from their group has already qualified for the semis. Spin plays a vital role in Bangladesh and this is the factor where New Zealand lack confidence. Nathan is the only spinner they have whereas Srilanka is full of quality spinners. If we compare pace, they are equally matched. But if Malinga gets going again Srilanka could be considered as favourites.

Couple of good matches today. Enjoy the world cup while we are very soon getting into the knock out stages where the team that plays well on that very day qualifies!
