In the next matches, South Africa, Sri Lanka, India, Australia, Netherlands, and Pakistan are up against England. If the England team wants to qualify for the semi-finals, they must perform well in the upcoming matches.

Before the World Cup’s start, no former cricketer did not declare England as the favorite for the semi-finals, but England lost their first match against New Zealand and now they have lost to a weak team like Afghanistan.

Now more hard work is needed to reach the semifinal and if England wins five of the next six matches, then England can qualify for the semi-finals but if they lose more than one match then it will be difficult for England to qualify for the semifinal.
