ICC World Cup 2023: Winner of South Africa-Australia semi-final will face India at Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on Sunday (November 19).

India reached World Cup 2023 final after beating New Zealand by 70 runs at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai. The unbeaten Rohit Sharma-led side registered their tenth consecutive win in the tournament.

Men in Blue await their opponent in the final after the second semi-final clash between Australia and South Africa scheduled today at Eden Gardens, Kolkata.

Australia and South Africa had incredible run in the campaign. The Proteas emerged victorious over Pat Cummins-led side by 134 runs. Initially, Australia experienced two defeats in the tournament but eventually proved their worth by clinching seven consecutive wins.

ICC has kept a reserve day if the semi-final match is washed out. If reserve day is also washed out, South Africa holds advantage to qualify for final with higher net run rate than Australia.

Weather report indicates fifty percent chance of rain in Kolkata today. Humidity will be 77 percent in the afternoon and maximum temperature will be 26 degree Celsius.

Winner of the match will face India at Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on Sunday (19 November 2023).
