England are through to the semi-final of the T20 World Cup following their win over India

England have made it through to the semi-final stages of the T20 World Cup following their 11 run win over India. They will, however, have one final group stage fixture to play ahead of the semi-final clash as they take on Pakistan this week.

As it stands, England and India are both set to go through to the final four along with Australia and New Zealand but this could all change as the final matches of the group stages take place. Australia have already sealed their place in the final four, following their four wins from four matches while New Zealand must wait for the result of South Africa’s upcoming match against Bangladesh to find out their fate.
