The Super 12 round in the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup is coming to an end. Some teams have already ensured their place in the Semi-Final. On the other side, some teams have been knocked out of this tournament also. Some teams are still fighting for a place in the semifinals. India and New Zealand are two such teams. Both of them are going to play today in different matches.
New Zealand VS Namibia
Today’s first match in the World Cup will be between New Zealand and Namibia. This match will be played at the Sharjah International Cricket Stadium, UAE. However, New Zealand are in the comfort zone in Group 2 in the Super 12 round. They have won two matches among the three. New Zealand are going to play their fourth match today. Currently, they are standing in 3rd place in Group 2 with 4 points. If they can win today, they will climb up to 2nd place in the point table.
Namibia, on the other hand, have won just one of their three matches in this tournament. They only beat Afghanistan in the Super 12 round. There is no chance for Namibia to go through the semi-final. But as a new team, Namibia played really well in the ICC T20 World Cup. They played well against Pakistan. Namibia scored 144 runs against the world-class pacer of Pakistan. They also bowled well in the first ten over against Pakistan. But Namibia lost their control in the last ten overs. They gave 130 runs in the final ten overs.
India VS Scotland
India will face Scotland in the second match of today. The match will be played at the Dubai International Stadium. India already lost two games of three. The match against Scotland is a must-win match for India. They are currently in 4th in the point table. India need to win all of their next games to go to the semi-final. On the contrary, Scotland haven’t won a game yet in the Super 12 round. As a result, Scotland have no chance to qualify for the semi-final.
In Group 2, Pakistan are the only team to secure their place in the semi-final of this tournament. Now, only one team can qualify for the semi-final from this Group. There is still a chance for India and New Zealand to go to the semifinal.
