As the exciting match between New Zealand and Afghanistan has begun, India’s prospects of reaching the semifinals are entirely dependent on the outcome of this match. Indian spectators will be cheering for AFG to win the match against NZ because it will lay the foundation for Team India to make the Semis. This is dependent on AFG winning the match by a narrow margin; if they do with a big margin, their NRR ensures them a spot in the Semis instead of Team India.
On the other hand, New Zealand appeared to be very tough in their World Cup campaign; if they maintain their winning streak against Afghanistan, their NRR will increase to clinch the second spot, as a result, Team India’s hopes of reaching the Semi-Finals would entirely vanish.
Current NRR For
New Zealand + 1.277
India + 1.619
Afghanistan + 1.481
