Live Streaming Cricket India vs South Africa T20 world cup 2012
India face South Africa in the last Super Eights fixture of the ICC World T20, a game they must win. Join our LIVE Blog!
The lowering clouds that scattered rain over the Indian Ocean weren’t a cheery sight. The clouds were threatening, ominous in their silent approach as a sunny morning changed to a morose mid-day.
India may have beaten Pakistan, but they still have to win and hope for favourable stars.
India can find themselves in a similar situation. For all those enthusiasts who are celebrating India’s advance into the semi-finals, take a stock of this – India can still be out of the ICC World Twenty20.
If they lose to South Africa and Pakistan beat Australia, India will be the second team after the Proteas to pack up. Not a situation they need to be in.
“At the moment we are not looking far beyond,” skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni said after the Pakistan win on Sunday. “We have a match against South Africa and that is it.”
Fair call. This one needs to be sorted out before India can think in terms of the semi-finals or beyond.
As of now, only Australia look safe. Even if they were to lose to Pakistan, both teams would qualify for the semis and India would be left regretting the hammering they got at the Aussies’ hands.
