In the T20 World Cup, the Indian team has to play its first match against Pakistan. This match between the two teams is to be played on 23 October at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. Team India had to face defeat by 10 wickets against Pakistan in the last World Cup, which will be desperate for revenge.
If seen, there should be no difficulty in reaching the semi-finals for the Indian team in the current T20 World Cup as Rohit Brigade has got an easy group. Apart from Pakistan, India is likely to get competition from South Africa team only. If the Indian team defeats these two, then its journey can be easy.
Three weak teams including Bangladesh!
There are teams like Netherlands, Bangladesh and Zimbabwe in the Indian team group. Against the Netherlands and Zimbabwe, India should have no problem getting the win. Yes, he may have to struggle to get a win against Bangladesh.
India will have to win four out of five matches to reach the semi-finals this time. By the way, even after winning three matches, India can cut the ticket to the semi-finals, but for this it will have to depend on the results of other teams. In the last World Cup too, India had won three matches but could not make it to the semi-finals.
,,.Avoid the past mistake
In the last T20 World Cup also, the Indian team got an easy group. The Indian team was then paired with Pakistan, New Zealand, Afghanistan, Scotland and Namibia. In such a situation, it was expected that India would definitely be successful in reaching the semi-finals but the opposite happened. India had to face defeat in their first two matches against Pakistan and New Zealand respectively. However, India later won three consecutive matches, which was insufficient to reach the semi-finals.
