New Delhi. Whether Team India will reach the semi-finals of the T20 World Cup or not is a question of lakhs. Virat Kohli’s team will not only have to play excellent cricket but also need good luck to reach the not out stage of the tournament. Truth be told, the key to reaching the semi-finals is not in Virat’s hands, but he has been trapped by the New Zealand team. Looking at the equation of the semi-finals, in Group 2, Team India has 3 ways to reach the next round. The special thing is that to reach the semi-final destination, the team will have to decide three paths simultaneously. Out of which Virat’s team is sitting on the driving seat of two. While the third is in the possession of New Zealand.
Before understanding the complete equation of the semifile, let’s have a look at the points table of Group 2. At present, Pakistan’s team has already reached the semi-finals with 4 wins in 4 matches. Now the fight is for number two. At present, it is occupied by Afghanistan and after that it is New Zealand’s turn. Team India is currently at number five. Let’s take a look at the 3 ways for Team India to reach the semi-finals.
win the next two matches
Team India will have to win both their remaining matches. India clash with Scotland on Friday. Whereas after this India has to play Namibia. The good thing is that after the banging win over Afghanistan, Team India’s net runrate has reached plus. While Afghanistan’s team has slipped from 3.097 to 1.481. If Team India beats Scotland and Namibia by a total of 120 runs, then their net run rate will be better than Afghanistan.
New Zealand’s victory, Team India’s hopes end
If the New Zealand team wins its last two matches, then the entire game of Netnerat will be over. With 8 marks, they will reach the semi-file directly. In such a situation, the hopes of both India and Afghanistan will end. New Zealand have to play their last two matches against Afghanistan and Namibia.
After the crushing defeat to Team India, the net run rate of Afghanistan has reached very low. In such a situation, they now have to beat New Zealand by a big margin. That is, the whole of India will pray for victory for Afghanistan. So now just wait for Sunday.
