In this way, India can reach the semi-finals

To reach the semi-finals, the Indian team will now have to win all the upcoming matches with a big margin. Along with this, New Zealand or Afghanistan, who are in Group Two of the Super 12 stage, will also have to lose one match. Only then can the Indian team reach the semi-finals. The biggest plus point for India is that in the coming matches, they will play against weaker teams. India now faces Afghanistan, Namibia and Scotland in the T20 World Cup. However, India will have to be careful with Afghanistan, because Afghan players are adept at making big upsets in the match.
