Cricket World Cup state of play

India’s 89-run thrashing of arch rivals Pakistan at Old Trafford on Sunday left them joint second behind leaders and reigning champions Australia in the 10-team World Cup table.

This year’s format sees all the teams playing each other once in the initial group phase, with the top four qualifying for the semi-finals.

Australia, New Zealand, India and hosts England, all widely tipped to reach the knockout stages before the tournament started, currently occupying the leading places.
