One must easily admit, this is the best team India ever had, India has made into semi finals in a style and will be playing against New Zealand. World Number one and Number two batsmans, Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma from Team India, world best number one bowler, Jasprit Bumrah with team India. Team India rightly deserved to be in the top of the table. With a match against New Zealand washing away due to rain, India always stayed behind with a difference of one point.
Finally yesterday, India made to the top spot. India by beating Srilanka climbed to the top spot, but still to retain the top spot Australia had to lose against South Africa. The result of Australia and South Africa ended the way Indians wanted. South Africa gave their scintillating performance and bet Australia by 10 runs. By which, Australia fell a point behind Team India and had to stay at Second spot.
This was the most important thing for team India. If India had been at second spot, they had to play against England at the very same pitch Birmingham were India lost to England. With India climbing to top spot, India will play against New Zealand at Greater Manchester. This match will happen on Tuesday, 9th July. While, Australia will play against the arch rivals England at Birmingham on Thursday, 11th of July.
Any team in top 4 can’t be underestimated. New Zealand has the best set of attacking players. Just because they haven’t performed in their last few matches in league stages, they can’t be written off. Irrespective of the opposition, Team India have to put their best effort. Wishing to see India in Finals and to bring the cup home! All the best to Virat Kohli and his men in blue!
