Not so long ago, the Aussies stunned India at Ahmedabad's cauldron, the Narendra Modi Stadium in the final of ODI World Cup 2023. In the Caribbeans, the setting is different and so thus the format.

But it's still cricket, the same game and now the India vs Australia clash is the fixture. When these two top-ranked teams (in the ICC T20 rankings) meet, fittingly so at a venue named after a two-time World Cup winner, expect some fireworks.

This particular IND vs AUS match, for that matter of fact, is a knockout, a virtual quarter-final en route semis.

A top-two finish will ensure progression to the semi-finals. As things stand, India lead Group A with four points (two wins in two), while Australia are second, ahead of Afghanistan by virtue of their better net run rate, +0.223 to -0.650. Both teams have two points each.

If India beat Australia, and Afghanistan beat Bangladesh -- the fourth team in the group and winless -- India and Afghanistan will finish first and second, respectively. Meaning, the Aussies are knocked out.

What if Australia beat India and Afghanistan tamed Bangladesh?

In that case, Afghanistan, Australia and India will have four points each and NRR will decide who finish where in the points table.

India have the best of the lot, an almost insurmountable +2.425. Then again, it's cricket and anything can happen. India will finish third in the group if they lose to Australia by 41 runs and Afghanistan beat Bangladesh by at least 83 runs.

A washout will be enough for India (five points).

More on Australia...

Even if the Aussies lose to India, they can still pip Afghanistan

- if Bangladesh beat Afghanistan by such a margin that the two teams' (AFG and BAN) net run rates remain lower than that of Australia;

- A washout and Bangladesh's win against Afghanistan, or BAN vs AFG also gets washed out.
