Howzat? Lawmakers ready to play hardball - on the cricket pitch

“All we want is to get to Friday with a real opportunity and our destiny in our own hands

Team Pakistan will be flying back to the country on Saturday after getting knocked out of the ICC World Cup 2019.

England captain Eoin Morgan has voiced his liking for Edgbaston as a venue after his side, eyeing their maiden World Cup triumph, beat India by 31 runs in a league game on Sunday. Because this year's World Cup was a different format.

Bangladesh captain Mashrafe Mortaza said they had a 50-50 chance to win Friday's game but no one could provide enough support to Shakib Al Hasan.

Playing his 16th World Cup match, Sharma reached three figures in 92 balls and equalled the record of six World Cup centuries overall held by legendary compatriot Sachin Tendulkar, who played 45 matches in the event.

Opener David Warner racked up another half-century and was the big hope for his side after allrounder Marcus Stoinis was run out for 22 then Glenn Maxwell quickly followed, both to brilliant work by South Africa's wicketkeeper Quinton de Kock.

An eighth group-stage victory for the Australians would guarantee them top spot, whatever second-place India does against Sri Lanka earlier Saturday in Leeds.

More, they have not beaten any of the three teams in this World Cup. "Whenever I wanted to bowl yorker, I asked senior players 'what do you think, should I bowl yorker?' They said yes, so I bowled yorkers".

Reigning champions Australia have already qualified for the semi-finals, while South Africa can not make it through to the last four.

That and their heartbreaking last-over defeat by West Indies in the World Twenty20 final the year before in Kolkata have made it essential England deliver to justify the prioritising of the limited-overs game.

His exploits included 4 hundreds - the joint-highest in any single World Cup, along with Kumar Sangakkara in 2015.

The paceman took a four-for against Afghanistan and a six-wicket haul in Pakistan's 94-run thrashing of Bangladesh, taking his tally in the World Cup to 16 wickets and becoming the youngest ever cricketer to take a five-for in the tournament's history. He's the second fastest India bowler to 100 wickets, in 57 innings, one more than the rested Mohammed Shami.
