After losing the last match against South Africa, Team India has come in an if-but-button situation in the T20 World Cup. Due to this, the Super-12 Group-2 match against Bangladesh to be held in Adelaide on Wednesday has become very important.
In this story, we will know further how victory and defeat will affect the equation of the Indian team. Along with this, the pitch report and the possible playing 11 of both teams will also be known.
India is currently positioned at number 2
At present, the Indian team is second in Group 2 with 4 points from 3 matches with two wins and one loss. At the same time, the Bangladesh team is also in third place with 4 points from the same number of matches. India is currently ahead of Bangladesh due to a better net rate.
India has to play their last match against Zimbabwe
With a win in this match, India’s way to the semi-finals will be very easy. At the same time, Bangladesh will be almost out of this tournament if they lose. After this match, Bangladesh’s last match is with Pakistan and India has to play Zimbabwe.
Loss from Bangaladesh may stop the Semi-final campaign
If the Indian team loses to Bangladesh, then its path will be difficult. In this situation, India will only be able to have a maximum of 6 points despite a win over Zimbabwe in the last match. In such a situation, if Pakistan wins its last two matches, then it will also get 6 points. Then the team with a better net run rate will benefit.
In the event of India’s defeat, Bangladesh’s chances will also increase significantly. If he beats Pakistan after India, then he will be seen with 8 points in the points tally.
Looking at these equations, it can be said that for India, the match against Bangladesh is in a way a knockout. In the event of a defeat, the path for India could be very limited.
