The 2nd semi-final of the 2023 World Cup between Australia and South Africa at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata is likely to be a damp squib.

While there is a reserve day for the semi-final, the forecast for the reserve day is also bleak. In case of no-result, South Africa will progress to the decider since they finished higher on the points table after the league stage. While both Proteas and Australia registered 7 wins each, the former's net run-rate is far superior.

Team India seal their place in the 2023 World Cup final:

Meanwhile, Team India, led by Rohit Sharma sealed their place in the final on Sunday at the Narendra Modi in Ahmedabad. The Men in Blue had beaten New Zealand in the 1st semi-final on Wednesday at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. The highlight of the game was Virat Kohli's 50th ODI century, while Shreyas Iyer also slammed a hundred to lift the Men in Blue to 397.
