India Out Of The T20 World Cup

India is out of the semi-finals of the T20 World Cup.

In today's match, New Zealand defeated Afghanistan and qualified for the semi-finals, with which the chances of the Indian team reaching the semi-finals are gone.

India have to play their last group match against Namibia tomorrow but despite winning this match, they will not be able to reach the next stage.

India lost their opening match by 10 wickets to traditional rivals Pakistan.

Pakistan won all four of its matches, with Afghanistan, New Zealand and India competing to reach the semi-finals.

In the next match, India was up against New Zealand but here too the Indian batting line failed and New Zealand won by 8 wickets and almost knocked India out of the event.

In the next match, the Indian team managed to beat Scotland after easily defeating Afghanistan, but still their access to the semi-finals depended on the match between New Zealand and Afghanistan.

If Afghanistan had beaten New Zealand, India's chances of advancing to the next round were bright as then a team with a better average would advance to the semi-finals and a better chance of doing so through a match against Namibia.

But New Zealand defeated Afghanistan and lost to India and made it to the semi-finals as well as winning the match.

It should be noted that this is the first time since 2012 that the Indian team has not made it to the semi-finals or finals of any ICC tournament.

The Indian team could not make it to the semi-finals for the last time in the 2012 T20 World Cup under the leadership of Mahendra Singh Dhoni.

They went on to win the Champions Trophy, losing to Sri Lanka in the final of the 2014 T20 World Cup and being knocked out by Australia in the semi-finals of the 2015 ODI World Cup.

It lost to West Indies in the semi-finals of the 2016 T20 World Cup, Pakistan in the 2017 Champions Trophy, New Zealand in the semi-finals of the 2019 World Cup and New Zealand in the final of the Test Championship.
