Wisden Cricket Daily Podcast: More Bairstow brilliance leaves England two wins from World Cup glory

by Wisden Staff 33 minute listen

Listen to the latest episode of The Wisden Cricket Daily Podcast, which will air throughout the Men’s Cricket World Cup.

England will play in their first World Cup semi-final for 27 years, taking on either Australia or India at Edgbaston next Thursday, after a Jonny Bairstow century helped sweep aside New Zealand by 119 runs to confirm their place in the last four. 

Jo Harman is joined by Ben Jones of CricViz to discuss an emphatic English victory that takes them one step closer to a first-ever World Cup title, while Kiwi journalist Andrew Alderson is concerned by the Black Caps’ form after three successive defeats have seen them limp towards the semi-finals.
