In the T20 World Cup 2021, the Indian team has lost the second match in a row. New Zealand beat India by 8 wickets in Dubai on Sunday. With this defeat, the path to make it to the semi-finals of Team India has become extremely difficult.
In fact, India now have to play matches against Afghanistan, Scotland and Namibia. If India wins from all the three teams, then India will have 6 points. On the other hand, if New Zealand wins the upcoming matches against Afghanistan, Scotland and Namibia after winning against India, it will reach the semi-finals with 8 points. These equations will be formed when India and New Zealand beat Afghanistan, Scotland and Namibia.
It should be noted that if the teams of Afghanistan, Scotland and Namibia reverse, the team of New Zealand will also benefit. Because in yesterday’s match, New Zealand has taken a 2-point lead by defeating India by 8 wickets. If New Zealand loses to Afghanistan and Namibia wins to Scotland, there will be six points and India will be ahead in terms of run rate.
It is to be noted that after the defeat against New Zealand, it is now difficult for India to reach the semi-finals. To return to this tournament, India will have to beat all the three teams by a big margin in their matches to be played. This will reduce the run rate difference.
