The Indian cricket team had to face defeat in the second consecutive match of the ICC World Cup. Team India lost by 8 against New Zealand on Sunday 31 October.
Earlier, Team India had also lost to Pakistan by 10 wickets. After these two consecutive defeats, India's hopes of reaching the semi-finals are almost over. By the way, the Indian team is still not completely out of the tournament.
On Sunday, the Indian batting failed completely and could only reach the score of 110 runs. New Zealand easily achieved the target in 14.3 overs for the loss of 2 wickets. The defeat of the Indian team in this do or die match made the road difficult. At the same time, the path of New Zealand's semi-final became easy after this victory.
Now, India has to play against Afghanistan, Scotland and Namibia. These matches will be played against Afghanistan on 3 November, Scotland on 5 November and Namibia on 8 November. In all these three matches, India need to win by at least 70 runs so that there is no problem in terms of net run rate.
The hope of reaching India can be made only if the team of Namibia and Scotland, who reached the Super 12 by playing the qualifiers, is successful in defeating New Zealand.
In terms of the equation that is being prepared at this time, India can reach 6 points by winning three matches. If India beat Afghanistan and it also loses to New Zealand, then it will be left on 4 points, but if the New Zealand team beats Afghanistan and then loses to Scotland or Namibia, it will be on maximum 6 points. Even after all this, if the Indian team is better than New Zealand in net run rate, only then will it be able to reach ahead.
