The Indian cricket team is playing its next match in the current T20 World Cup after pulling off an incredible triumph against arch-rival Pakistan in the tournament’s opening match, followed by a victory over the Netherlands.
They lost their subsequent match versus Proteas, dropping them to second place in the standings. To move up to the Top 4, they must win their remaining matches against Bangladesh and Zimbabwe.
India’s prospects of winning this world cup will be reduced by a draw or loss at this point because the match between India and Bangladesh, which is scheduled for today, is likely to be postponed due to rain.

In such a scenario, Bangladesh and India would each have one point, hence for India to gain a point.
The majority of the matches in this major competition have been postponed owing to the weather, and the points have been split evenly between the two teams as a result.
To advance to the Top 4, New Zealand, Australia, England, and to some extent Sri Lanka will compete in Group 1, while South Africa, India, and to some extent Pakistan are in the hunt in Group 2.

Teams must win the majority of their games during the league stage and take advantage of this opportunity to advance to the semifinals, which sums up the outcome of this prestigious event in Australian conditions nicely.
They can’t afford one setback because rainy weather could hurt the hopes of a deserving squad. Afghanistan has played four games in this major competition, losing two of them while having two games postponed due to weather.
Shakib Al Hassan, the captain of Bangladesh, previously stated that India is the favorite to win the T20 world cup and that Bangladesh defeating India would be shocking, thus we are preparing for today’s game accordingly.
In India, where the next world cup will be held, fans are crossing their hopes that no games will be cancelled due to rain.
