The Indian cricket team heads into their final Super 12 match of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022, after securing their place in the semi-final. The Men in Blue will face Zimbabwe in their final Super 12 match on Sunday at the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG). India travelled to Melbourne after defeating Bangladesh by five runs in Adelaide on November 2, while Zimbabwe are coming off a five-wicket defeat to the Netherlands in their previous match at the same venue.
Netherlands’ win over South Africa ensured no other team will go past India’s tally of six points in the Super 12 standings. This meant India became the first team in the group to qualify for the semis and will be either by Pakistan or Bangladesh. After the Netherlands vs South Africa match, India were placed at the top of the Group 2 points table with three wins and a loss from four matches. Meanwhile, the India vs Zimbabwe match is scheduled to begin at 1:30 PM on Sunday.
