The important match of T20 World Cup will be played between India and Zimbabwe on Sunday. India must win this match to reach the semi-final, if it loses then the winning team from Pakistan or Bangladesh will reach the semi-final.
Pakistan’s run rate is better than India’s while Bangladesh’s team is at the fourth position with minus one point two seven. Apparently, the situation is tough for the Bangladesh team even after India’s defeat, so it will depend more on South Africa’s defeat.
Before the match against India, Zimbabwe captain Craig Irvine has said in his statement that he wants the same result of the match against India as the match against Pakistan.
By the time the India-Zimbabwe match takes place, Zimbabwe will know that they are out of the race for the semi-finals, yet the Zimbabwean captain wants to beat India and knock them out of the event.
The Zimbabwean team has defeated Pakistan in an upset in the event and will be looking to repeat this performance against India at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on Sunday. In this match, 90,000 spectators are expected to arrive at the stadium.
Craig Irvine said in his statement that after defeating Pakistan we got the confidence that we can beat any team and I don’t think this confidence will be lost before the match against India.
“Our bowlers have the opportunity to bowl in front of the best batsmen in the world, so there is no reason for the players to come down to the ground and not perform well,” he said. You think to yourself how many chances do you get to dismiss a big batsman like Virat Kohli? I am sure every bowler would like to win this award.
