ICC Cricket World Cup on Channel 9 – Australia’s fight to win the ICC Cricket World Cup goes up a notch when they take on South Africa in a do-or-die semi-final, live and free from India on Channel 9HD and 9Now tomorrow night at 7.00pm.
Pat Cummins will lead Australia into battle in the second semi-final on Nine’s Wide World of Sports from Eden Gardens in Kolkata, with a place in the final on the line.
Australia will go on the attack with batsmen Glenn Maxwell, Steve Smith, Mitchell Marsh and David Warner, and a bowling attack featuring Josh Hazlewood, Mitchell Starc and spinner Adam Zampa, the leading wicket-taker in the tournament.
Nine’s commentary is hosted by Roz Kelly, with expert comments from former Australian captain Mark Taylor.
Mark Taylor said:
“Australia versus South Africa sees two very similar teams going head to head for a spot in the World Cup final.
“Warner, Marsh, Maxwell and co, taking on Quinton de Kock, Aiden Markham and Heinrich Klaasen, sees explosive batting up against quality fast bowling from Pat Cummins, Kagiso Ramada, Mitchel Starc, Lungi Ngidi, Josh Hazlewood and Marco Jansen – a mouthwatering prospect.
“South Africa were too good for Australia in the group stage but the Aussies have lifted since those early encounters.
“Zampa’s 22 wickets and Maxwell’s double hundred have been two of the highlights for Australia, but don’t rule out the South Africans who will be itching to make their first World Cup final. Eden Gardens will be packed for what will be an epic encounter.”
All three finals games are available live and free in prime time on Channel 9HD. 9Now will stream live and free coverage and mini matches of every game, providing everything you need to stay up to date.
*If bad weather causes the reserve day to be activated on Friday, Australia v South Africa will be shown live and free on Channel 9 at 7.00pm – Friday, November 17.
