    2019 World Cup Cricket - SF MAP-2: Australia vs England

    While we wait with bated breath to know whether or not the India vs New Zealand match will be played out partly, wholly or not at all, let's make some predictions for the second semi-final between Australia and England. The two teams have a long-standing rivalry in cricket, primarily for the Ashes, and in other formats of the game as well. As hosts, England are raring to reach the final. Australia are the current champions and would be equally determined to get closer to retaining the Cricket World Cup for a sixth time. So how will the match play out?

    SF MAP-2: Australia vs England
    1. Name the Captain who will lead his team on to the ground to field first.

    2. Name the Vice-Captain who will make fewer runs than his counterpart.

    3. Name the batsman who will score the highest number of sixes.

    4. Name the wicket-keeper who will take more catches than his counterpart. (note: here only you need not give a name and can give 'neither' as the answer if you think neither will take any catches).

    5. Name the bowler who will take the wicket of the second batsman of Team Australia.

    6. Name the bowler who will take the wicket of the second batsman of the England team.

    7. Name the bowler who will give away the most runs.

    8. Name the player who will win the man-of-the-match award.

    As you can see, the same predictions to be made as in the first SF MAP, with a slight modification only! The same instructions, rules and points and cc are applicable as well.

    Closing time: Midnight tonight (IST), 10th July 2019.

    Can somebody please let me know who are the vice-captains for the two teams for this World Cup? Is it Jos Butler for England and Alex Carrey or Pat Cummins for Australia?

    Alex Carrey, I believe was the vice-captain of the Australian squad that played in the 2019 Cricket World Cup.

    Thanks Juana, for the input.

    The result-
    Australia vs England SF MAP
    1. Aaron Finch.
    2. Since Jos Butler did not have to come in to bat, I am giving 1 point and 1 cc by default for this prediction.
    3. Jason Roy.
    4. Both Morgan and Carey took one catch each, so both are acceptable.
    5. Jofra Archer.
    6. Mitchell Starc.
    7. Mitchell Starc.
    8. Chris Woakes.

    Participants are requested to check their points and cc in this thread and let me know if incorrect. I will credit the points and cc for the final MAP as well soon.

    Rachit,

    I am a bit puzzled about why you wrote 'Nil' for the first prediction.
