If you think cricket is boring, you didn't watch the Cricket World Cup match between New Zealand and South Africa, a six-hour, rain-delayed event that wasn't decided until the second to last ball.

With New Zealand now in the final, Australia faces India, which even if a shot at the World Cup final were not at stake, would be an amazing sporting spectacle, but Thursday's showdown should be intense.

The Australia vs. India semi-final will be played at the Sydney Cricket Ground, with first ball at 11.30am Beijing time. The final, between New Zealand and the winner of Australia and India, is set for Sunday, March 29, starting at 11am Beijing time.

Paddy O'Shea's has confirmed that it will show both Thursday's semi-final and Sunday's final live. Check back as we add more confirmed venues later this week.

Reddy's Wine Well will show Sunday's final live, with unlimited beer for a RMB 250 entrance fee. More details on that event here.
