INDIA Reaches semifinal of T20 World Cup 2022 after Netherlands stun South Africa
T20 World Cup 2022: The Indian squad has advanced to the T20WC 2022 semifinals after South Africa was upset by the Netherlands in Adelaide on Sunday morning. As a result, only Pakistan can finish ahead of India, giving India a spot in the top two to qualify for the T20 World Cup semi-finals.
Team India has advanced to the T20 World Cup 2022 semifinals after the Netherlands defeated South Africa by 13 runs on the final day of the Super 12 stage. With a game in hand over Zimbabwe, India is essentially guaranteed a top-two finish, with only Pakistan with a high Net Run Rate (NRR) able to catch them. The Netherlands’ victory means that they will host a T20 World Cup semifinal for the fourth time, and for the first time since 2016.
Netherlands do favour to India
In the early match on Sunday (November 6) morning, the Netherlands did both India and Pakistan a big favor by defeating South Africa by 13 runs. South Africa finished the Super 12 stage with five points from five games. The defeat means that the winner of Pakistan and Bangladesh will have six points, and with no rain forecast in Adelaide, one team will have six points with India. This also implies that only one team (the winner of Pakistan vs. Bangladesh) can catch India on six points, ensuring India a top-two finish.
Fourth Semifinal for India in T20 World Cup
While India is scheduled to play Zimbabwe on Sunday afternoon, the result will have an impact on who they face in the semifinals. In the grand scheme of things, India will host their fourth T20 World Cup semifinal, having previously advanced to the last four in 2007, 2014, and 2016. India has reached the final twice, with their lone victory coming in 2007, while they lost to Sri Lanka in the 2014 final.
India vs Pakistan in the Final?
The Netherlands’ upset with South Africa means that India and Pakistan might meet in the T20 World Cup final. If Pakistan beats Bangladesh and advances to the T20 World Cup semifinals, where they will face either England or New Zealand, and India wins the other semifinal against one of the Group 1 opponents, the possibility becomes a reality. If this is the case, India and Pakistan would meet in the final of the T20 World Cup for the first time in 15 years, having hosted the first competition in 2007.
