In the World Cup 2021, the Indian team suffered an 8-wicket defeat against New Zealand on Sunday, due to which its path to reach the semi-finals has become very difficult. Let us tell you that yesterday’s match between New Zealand and India was a do or die match, the team which would have won this match would have had a simple journey to qualify.
After Pakistan in Group-2, New Zealand’s chances of qualifying have increased, they will have to win all their further matches which are from Scotland, Afghanistan and Namibia. Now the question arises whether the Indian team can make it to the semi-finals, the answer will be ‘yes’. Many things will have to go in his favor for India to qualify.
Let’s know how India can qualify
Case 1 – First thing if New Zealand lose to Namibia and Scotland and beat Afghanistan and India win all their remaining matches then they can reach semi-finals with 6 points.
Case 2 – If New Zealand loses all its matches, then India will have to win all its matches as well as beat Afghanistan and Namibia by a margin to improve its run rate. Suppose if Pakistan wins from Namibia, then India will only have to win against Namibia, not have to fight for the run rate.
Case 3 – If New Zealand wins against Scotland and Namibia and loses to Afghanistan, then India will have to win all their matches by a huge margin so that their run-rate can be better than New Zealand and Afghanistan.
Case 4 – If New Zealand wins from Scotland and loses to Namibia and Afghanistan, then India will have to beat Afghanistan and Namibia by a huge margin.
Case 5 – If New Zealand wins over Afghanistan and Namibia and loses to Scotland, then India will not only have to beat Afghanistan and Scotland by a huge margin, but also their qualifying will depend on whether New Zealand Lost against Scotland by a huge margin.
