Watch Ind vs Zim and Aus vs Sco Live Streaming
Clouds are clearing up and things are settling down. The speculations of who would make it to the quarter finals will come to an end by this weekend. New Zealand won all their six matches while a team like England are eliminated. Teams like Ireland and Bangladesh have surprised all of us with quality cricket. India is still unbeatable with five wins on the trot. Sri Lanka, Australia, Bangladesh from Pool A are already through to the quarter finals but their position and quarter final opponents are yet to be decided. For Pool B, things are little complex as apart from India and South Africa, three teams are competing for the left out two berths for quarters. The teams are Ireland, West Indies and Pakistan. Keeping aside the permutations and combinations, its time for a double header Saturday in ICC Cricket World Cup 2015.

India will play Zimbabwe at the Eden Park, Auckland in New Zealand. Brendon Taylor would sign off from Zimbabwe as he plays his last match for the nation before he heads towards England for a three year cricket contract with Nottinghamshire. Zimbabwean team would love to make it special for him by beating the world champions - not at all easy though!
Indian team is at the peak of their form ever. After winning 2011 world cup and 2013 Champions Trophy, the team never looked in such a good form. Or shall we say they never got such a big event to perform after that. Truly a team of big ICC events! First time ever, Indian bowlers have bowled out the opposition on five consecutive occasions - MS Dhoni breathes a sigh of relief. He has also captained the team in nine world cup matches win on the trot.
The team might rest couple of key players and give a chance to players who are warming the bench. For any news of this we need to wait till the toss in the morning. Shami, Mohit Sharma and Umesh Yadav have been all outstanding with their bowling. Shikhar Dhawan has been the ace for Indian batting. We hope Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma performs consistently and then this team easily seems to be picking the title again. Raina, Dhoni and Rahane haven't got too many opportunities to bat for too long. Ashwin is doing a good job with his spin.
Australia takes on Scotland in their last group match of this world cup. A win here will take them to 9 points and they would be placed second in the tally. They are likely to face Pakistan/Ireland/West Indies in the quarter finals depending on outcomes of next few matches.
Australian side were a little rusty to begin with. But they have bounced back hard and added flavour to this world cup of cricket. Their only loss came against the co-hosts New Zealand and one match was washed out against Bangladesh. Otherwise they have been phenomenal. Their bowlers looked a bit weak against Sri Lanka but in the end they registered a decent victory.
Scotland are yet to win a world cup match and this being their second appearance in a world cup event. Beating Australia is almost impossible so they might have to fly back without a win. But even if they could manage to give a good fight, that would treat us with some quality cricket.
