Saturday's double header: Australia face Lanka, South Africa take on Afghanistan

Defending champions Australia will take on Sri Lanka, while South Africa face Afghanistan today in the ICC Cricket World Cup. The Australia-Sri Lanka game will be played in London at 3 PM (Indian Standard Time), with the South Africa-Afghanistan match scheduled to begin at 6 PM at Cardiff. The weather in London is forecast to be mostly sunny, while there is a prediction of rain in Cardiff.

Due to showers, four matches in the tournament have, so far, ended without any result. The most recent one was India’s third round-robin game against New Zealand at Nottingham. India will play arch-rivals Pakistan tomorrow in their fourth match at Manchester. In the 10-team points table, New Zealand continues to be at the top with seven points, followed by hosts England at second with six points.

Australia also have six points but they are third due on net run rate. India are fourth with five points. Sri Lanka is fifth with four points, while West Indies, Bangladesh and Pakistan are sixth, seventh and eighth with three points each.
