Guwahati: India will take on Zimbabwe with the aim of securing their T20 World Cup semi-final spot at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) on Sunday, November 6.
India currently lead the Group 2 table with six points from four matches, whereas Zimbabwe sit in fifth position with three points from four matches.
A shock defeat for South Africa against Netherlands earlier on Sunday has ensured that India will not face a must-win game against Zimbabwe to qualify for the semi-finals.
Rohit Sharma’s men are already through the final four as a result of South Africa’s exit, and victory against Zimbabwe will seal their place at the top of Group 2 and set-up a semi-final showdown against England in Adelaide on November 10.
While India has three wins in four games, it hasn’t been a smooth ride. In their opening match against Pakistan, they needed a Virat Kohli masterclass to give them a memorable, come-from-behind victory.
In India, Star Sports will serve as the T20 World Cup’s official broadcaster in 2022. It will broadcast live coverage of the IND vs ZIM game.
