Semi Finals

  2. 17th June 1999 Australia v South Africa, Birmingham, tied

Australia progressed to the final due to being ahead of South Africa on the Super Six points table, which in turn was decided on net run rate, since the two teams were tied with Pakistan on points and each had won one game against the other two opponents so head-to-head determination could not split them.
