1. (2) INDIA
The last undefeated team standing after surviving an almighty scare against Afghanistan. Extremely well placed to add trophy number three to their cabinet at the scene of their first triumph 36 years ago.
LAST FIVE: SA (W), AUS (W), NZ (NR), PAK (W), AFG (W).
NEXT FIVE: WI, ENG, BANG, SL.
2. (4) AUSTRALIA
The Aussies are the first team qualified for the Semi Finals, a remarkable achievement given the state of their team as recently as six months ago.
LAST FIVE: IND (L), PAK (W), SL (W), BANG (W), ENG (W).
REMAINING FIXTURES: NZ, SA.
3. (3) NEW ZEALAND
Haven’t done much wrong in the tournament to date but we’ll learn a lot more about the Black Caps in their next two games.
LAST FIVE: AFG (W), IND (NR), SA (W), WI (W), PAK (L).
REMAINING FIXTURES: AUS, ENG.
4. (5) BANGLADESH
Four years ago they knocked England out of the World Cup, are they primed to steal their semi final spot at the last minute?

REMAINING FIXTURES: IND, PAK.

Is this really 1992 revisited?

6. (1) ENGLAND
Have spent the last four years dominating ODI cricket and are now fluffing their lines on the biggest stage in the game.
LAST FIVE: BANG (W), WI (W), AFG (W), SL (L), AUS (L).
REMAINING FIXTURES: IND, NZ.
7. (9) SRI LANKA
Came into the tournament in the worst form of any team but, after producing the shock of the tournament against England, have their destiny almost entirely in their own hands with three games to play
LAST FIVE: AFG (W), PAK (NR), BANG (NR), AUS (L), ENG (W).
REMAINING FIXTURES: SA, WI, IND.
8. (6) WEST INDIES
Flattered to deceive with an early domination of Pakistan and close tussle with Australia but have been in fact a long way off the pace.
LAST FIVE: AUS (L), SA (NR), ENG (L), BANG (L), NZ (L).
REMAINING FIXTURES: NZ, IND, SL, AFG.
9. (7) SOUTH AFRICA
Have unquestionably been the disappointment of the tournament, rather than contend for the trophy they were one of the first teams eliminated from contention.
LAST FIVE: IND (L), WI (NR), AFG (W), NZ (L), PAK (L).
REMAINING FIXTURES: SL, AUS.
10. (9) AFGHANISTAN
Remain winless in the 2019 World Cup but did go agonisingly close to completing the upset of the tournament against India. Depending on how results fall, may have two dead rubbers in which to claim that elusive victory.
LAST FIVE: NZ (L), SA (L), ENG (L), IND (L), BANG (L).
REMAINING FIXTURES: PAK, WI.
