The entire equation of the Indian cricket team has changed only after a victory in the ICC T20 World Cup. After this victory, the fans of the Indian cricket team have started feeling that we can still reach the semi-finals of the World Cup.
Team India Has Found A Way to Play the Semi-Finals!
In the match played in Abu Dhabi, the Afghanistan team won the toss and elected to bowl first. But his decision was proved wrong by Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul. Both added 140 runs for the first wicket and put India ahead in the match. After these two, Rishabh Pant scored 27, and Hardik Pandya scored 35 runs to take India to 210 runs.
In response, the Afghanistan team came out to play and could only score 144 runs. Shami took three in the bowling for India, while Ravichandran Ashwin took two wickets while being a very economical bowler.
But still, the Indian team is in fourth place in the points table of Group 2 behind Pakistan, Afghanistan and New Zealand. And in such a situation, now what will Team India do to go to the semi-finals? Let us explain the complete equation.

The Indian team will have to win the matches against Scotland on 5 November and Namibia on 8 November by a significant margin. The big difference means by a margin of more than 50 runs.
The second task, even after this, India will have to pray that at least one team from Afghanistan or Namibia can beat New Zealand.
The third task, the net run rate of Afghanistan, is currently +1.481, which is better than New Zealand and India. In such a situation, India wants Afghanistan to beat New Zealand but not by a considerable margin.
Apart from all these things, the correct equation for India is that Namibia caused a big upset against New Zealand. That is, defeat the Kiwi team. So that even if New Zealand beats Afghanistan, there will still be a chance for India.
