The ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 has reached its business end as the top four teams will compete with each other for global supremacy and earn the right to be called 'World Champions' for the next four years in the final week of the tournament. India, England, Australia and New Zealand are the four semi-finalists.
Ahead of the mouth-watering semi-finals, the governing body of world cricket, International Cricket Council (ICC) came forward to mark the four semifinalists using an icon of pop culture, as they posted an image of the captains of the semi-finals Virat Kohli, Aaron Finch, Eoin Morgan and Kane Williamson walking on 'Abbey Road', just like in the cover of the iconic 1969 Beatles album. Virat Kohli is seen leading the way, just as John Lennon had led the Beatles in the original cover, followed by Ringo Starr, Paul McCartney, and George Harrison

Meanwhile, even the fans joined ICC in having some fun.
Coming back to Cricket, India will be eyeing their third World Cup crown. The Men In Blue had won the World Cup twice in 1983 and 2011 respectively. Reigning World Champions Australia will be aiming for their sixth title and at the same time will also be eager to retain their title. Meanwhile, the hosts England and New Zealand will be desperate to end their title drought and lift their maiden World title. England had reached the finals thrice in 1979, 1987 and 1992 respectively where they finished as the second-best side while New Zealand were the runners-up of the 2015 edition where they had lost to Australia.
India will take on New Zealand in the first semi-final at the Old Trafford on Tuesday while Australia will be up against their arch-rivals England at Edgbaston.
