team india semifinal: world t20 how team india can qualify for semi finals still dependent on other results
Team India finally tasted victory in the World T20. They beat Afghanistan by a huge margin of 66 runs in Abu Dhabi on Wednesday night. With this win, the hopes of Team India are still intact. It is expected that Kohli and Co can still reach the semi-finals.
But will one win really make everything all right? What will happen to the net run rate spoiled by the crushing defeat against Pakistan-New Zealand. There are many such questions, which we will try to find answers to. And understand how alive India’s hope of reaching the last four is.
Currently the position of the points table
Group-2’s topper Pakistan team has qualified for the semi-finals. He has 8 points after winning all his four matches and has a net run rate of +1.065. With two wins and as many losses in four matches, Afghanistan is at number two, which has the best net run rate. With two wins and one loss in three matches, New Zealand are third and then India fourth, with a run rate of +0.073.
How will India reach the semi-finals?
India have to play their next two matches against weaker teams in the round of 12. Here the first condition applies, and that is a win by a large margin. There is a clash against Scotland on 5 November. The last match will be against Namibia. Team India would like to win these remaining matches with a huge margin and so that the net run rate improves. Then it also has to be expected that Afghanistan beat New Zealand.
India’s biggest hope
The Men in Blues, however, did themselves a favor by beating Afghanistan by 66 runs, bringing their net run rate from -1.609 to +0.073. Amidst all this, the one thing that looks good for India is that they have to play the last match of the group, so Team India will know what it needs to do to reach the semi-finals.
Indian lions returned in color
Meanwhile, the one thing that went well in the victory against Afghanistan is the return of the Indian stalwarts in color. Rohit Sharma (74) and KL Rahul (69) made the record for the highest first wicket partnership for India in the World T20. Both scored half-centuries. Rishabh Pant (27 *) and Hardik Pandya (35 *), who landed at number three and fourth, also returned to form. Playing fast-paced innings, India’s score reached 210 runs for 2 wickets.
