Team India is in danger of being out of the World Cup after Australia’s victory
In the 31st match of the T20 World Cup, Australia defeated the Ireland team by runs. Batting first, Australia team scored 179 runs for the loss of 5 wickets in 20 overs and set Ireland a target of 180 runs to win.
Chasing this target, the Ireland team was bundled out for 137 runs in 18.1 overs. Hence, Australia won by 42 runs. With the victory of Australia, there has been a big manipulation in the points table. Let’s know the full scenario of the points table-
Australia took a long jump, beat England
Actually, Australia has jumped in the points table by winning the match against Ireland. Where Australia was at number four in the points table, after this victory, it has overtaken England to reach the second position. Talking about the position of the rest of the teams in Group 1, New Zealand continues to dominate this group.
The team has the first place with five points. England are in third place after winning the only match. Ireland, Sri Lanka and Afghanistan are at number 4, 5 and 6 respectively.
India will face a big team in the semi-finals
If India finishes the group stage tournament with the first or second place in the points table from Group-2, then India will face Australia or New Zealand in the semi-finals. However, there are still some matches left for all the teams in both the groups.
After this the vision of the semi-finals will be completely clear. Remember that the biggest weakness of the Indian team in the knockout tournament is the defeat from the big teams. In this case, India’s record against New Zealand has been poor. At present, India needs to win the remaining two matches for the semi-finals in their own group.
