The clash that India is impatiently waiting for – New Zealand vs Afghanistan

Abu Dhabi: Come Sunday and the Indian team will watch the much awaited match between New Zealand and Afghanistan, the result of which will decide the semifinal line from Group 2. The Indian brethren will pray for Afghanistan’s victory that will aid in the team’s chance to play in the semi-final.

A win for the New Zealanders would mean all doors closed for India as it would take the Kiwis to eight points, putting things beyond the reach of Virat Kohli’s men.

If Afghanistan manage to turn the tables on Kane Williamson & Co, it will keep alive their slim chances while boosting that of the Indians (on 4 points currently), who would need to win their last match with a good margin. However, if the Kiwis secure a win, India’s final league game on Monday against Namibia will be rendered inconsequential.

New Zealand will head into the match high on confidence after having eased to victory against Namibia on Friday. Jimmy Neesham and Glenn Phillips rose to the occasion after the top-order failed to fire and set up a challenging total which proved too much for the Namibian batters.

The equation is simple, If Afghanistan win, India has a chance to make it to the semifinals, if they lose, India will be out along with Afghanistan and it will be the Kiwis who will go in to the last four.
