The India vs Namibia match will now be a formality after New Zealand defeated Afghanistan at Zayed cricket stadium in Abu Dhabi to grab the second available semifinal spot from Group 2. Pakistan were the first to make the knockouts from this group.
India opened their campaign with back-to-back defeats against Pakistan and New Zealand, respectively. The Virat Kohli-led side bounced back in their third match against Afghanistan. India then went on to beat Scotland with a big margin to lift their net run rate. However, their fortune slipped from their hands in the process.
Following their two losses, India players were targetted for their poor show at the office. However, batters Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul, and bowlers Mohammad Shami and Jasprit Bumrah silenced the critics with their performance with the bat and bowl, respectively.
Namibia, who are already eliminated, had a mixed tournament. They won one match and lost three games out of four played so far. In their last match against New Zealand, they threatened the Kiwis when Namibia rattled their top-order. However, New Zealand overcame the jitters and eventually defeated Namibia by 52 runs.
Namibia would be aiming to finish off their first-ever T20 World Cup on a high note. For that, the South African side needs to come stronger against India.
