Can India continue their winning run?
In the ongoing tournament, the Indian team has been phenomenal in every aspect. From bowling to fielding, the team has been amazing on the field. Their efforts have been reflected in the results too, as India is unbeaten in the ongoing tournament. Starting from Australia to the formidable South Africa, India has thrashed each participating country in the ongoing tournament. However, in their last league game, the team will take on the Netherlands at M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru.
On the auspicious occasion of Diwali, team management will look to continue their winning run ahead of the crucial semifinal. It’s worth noting that India will face Kane Williamson-led New Zealand in the first semifinal at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on November 15. The winner will then face the winner of the second semi-final on November 19 at Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad in the finals.
