australia beat england by 7 wickets! not good for england and it looks like their world cup campaign could nearly be over

Who's left for England to play?

Australia are simply magic, really unless New Zealand can pull off the unthinkable, it will be a Sri Lanka v Australia final...

Realisticlly, BUT as we are witnessing, this WC has been soooo unpredictable.

Gosh remember that chap - Bob Woolmer? Seems so long ago now.

We've got to play Bangladesh, South Africa and the West Indies. Simple - three wins gives us a decent chance. Anything less and we're going home.

New Zealand have beaten ireland by 129 runs in the lates world cup match!.

this from tvnz.co.nz

New Zealand kept up their unbeaten run at the World Cup with a 129-run victory over debutants Ireland in a Super Eights match on Tuesday.

New Zealand racked up 263-8 after a late innings rally of 45 runs from the last three overs, following Peter Fulton's top score 83.

As the required run rate increased, Ireland lost their last seven wickets for 24 runs as they were bowled out for 134 with 12.2 overs remaining in the final World Cup match at the Providence Stadium.

The Black Caps are now top of the table on net run rate with both Australia and the Kiwis on eight points.

Daniel Vettori claimed 4-23 when he ran through the Irish tail. He had three lbws and finished the innings by bowling Kyle McCallan and trapping last man Boyd Rankin in front to be on a hat-trick in his next match.

Ireland, now on the cusp of elimination, rarely threatened the Black Caps' total despite an entertaining 49 off 45 balls from middle-order batsman Kevin O'Brien, who was eventually run out after a mix-up with his brother Niall.

With three matches left, the Black Caps are now almost assured one of the semi-final berths.

Ireland remain winless from their three second stage Super Eight games so far and their task does not get any easier with Australia up next on Saturday.

New Zealand's victory did not appear so clear-cut at various stages of their innings when they slumped to 83 for three and later 189 for seven, with Ireland fielding athletically and bowling accurately for the most part.

Fulton resisted Ireland with a steady 83 from 110 balls for his sixth one-day half-century with wickets falling around him.

Man-of-the-match Fulton eventually perished to the accurate off-spinner McCallan, who finished with two for 35 from his 10 overs.

It was left to the tail, though, to boost the Kiwis' total. McCullum struck two fours and a six that smashed a window in a third-tier press box.

The Black Caps have now won their last nine one-day internationals and require one more victory to match their best win-streak.

the current points table after four games is as follows:

Team MP W L PCF Pts NRR

NZL 4 4 0 2 8 +1.73

AUS 4 4 0 2 8 +1.51

SRI 4 3 1 2 6 +1.55

RSA 4 2 2 0 4 -0.63

ENG 4 1 3 0 2 -0.06

WIN 4 1 3 2 2 -1.18

BAN 4 1 3 0 2 -1.78

IRE 4 0 4 0 0 -1.39

New Zealand is about to enter the Hellfire cauldron of reality as it takes on teams that are rated FAR superior than it, within ten days those run rate positions will change to read Aus, Sri, RSA, NZL in that order!

This is the sharp end of the WC. :huh:

Not quite definitely out, though the phrase "mathematical miracle" has been used.

Meanwhile, at the new look Kensington Oval, England have bowled Bangladesh out for 143.

New Zealand has been absolutly THUMPED by Sri Lanka after going into bat first and scoring a miserly 219 for 7. Sri Lanka overhauled the target in the 45th over with 6 wickets to spare.

England, don't go home just yet!

Wow what a loooong World Cup this has been. (oh yeah, the ICC is looking to reduce the tournament back down to four weeks for the next cup!)

Either that or you've already peaked and you're starting the sort of decline we suffered in 92.

true, but i hope not. Australia have beaten Ireland by 9 mickets after bowling them out for only 91. Australia chased down the score in just 12 overs. They are going to be bloody hard to beat

Oh gosh yeah, and whats worse is that they (aussie) KNOW it!

Still my prediction for the final four still stands so far.

Sri Lanka and Australia are still looking hot for the final.

new zealand played well after winning the toss on a slow wicket. McMillan was the man of the match after taking 3 wickets and scoring 38 not out!

Pheeew, NZ made it through to the semis!

England is still in with a chance if they beat RSA, and NZ pulls off what would be a spectacular victory against Australia.

Australia don't matter to us. We win our two remaining games against South Africa and the West Indies and we will be through.
