A must win game for Australia

Australia’s hopes for a spot in the T20 World Cup semifinals suffered a significant setback following a surprising 21-run loss to Afghanistan in their Super 8 match. Meanwhile, India strengthened their position with four points after defeating Bangladesh, placing them on the brink of securing a semifinal berth due to their superior run rate. Both Australia and Afghanistan currently have two points each.

A win would elevate them to four points, potentially securing their spot even if Afghanistan also reaches four points by defeating Bangladesh. However, a loss to India coupled with an Afghanistan win would leave Australia stranded at two points, allowing Afghanistan to advance with four points.

What will happen if IND vs AUS is washed out?

Rain could further complicate Australia’s chances. A washout against India would result in both teams sharing a point, leaving Australia with three points. In such a scenario, Afghanistan could secure their semifinal place by defeating Bangladesh and reaching four points, alongside India.

If rain disrupts the match, Australia’s only hope to reach the semifinals would be if Bangladesh manages to defeat Afghanistan. This outcome would leave Bangladesh and Afghanistan tied at two points each, while India and Australia would advance with five and three points respectively, based on their performances in other matches. Thus, a rain-affected outcome against India could prove disastrous for Australia’s T20 World Cup campaign.
