T20 World Cup 2024: The Indian Cricket Team, under the leadership of Rohit Sharma, successfully qualified for the semi-finals of the ICC’s T20 World Cup 2024 as they secured a comfortable 24-run victory over arch-rivals Australia in their final Super Eight match at the Daren Sammy National Cricket Stadium of St Lucia on Monday.

The Men in Blue became the third side to successfully qualify for the semi-finals of the T20 World Cup after South Africa and England. One final spot is still left, and the trio of Afghanistan, Australia, and Bangladesh are battling against each other for the fourth and final semi-final spot. The Rashid Khan-led team has the easiest path to secure that semi-final spot, as they just need to win against Bangladesh in order to qualify.

South Africa and India are still unbeaten in the tournament, while England lost their group stage match against Ashes rivals Australia.

Following the Indian Cricket Team’s win over the Aussies by 24 runs, here’s how the updated points table looks.

IND vs AUS Match Highlights

Batting first, the Indians managed to put up an excellent total of 205-5 in their quota of 20 overs thanks to the brilliant efforts of skipper Rohit Sharma (92 runs in 41-balls), Suryakumar Yadav (31 runs in 16-balls) and Shivam Dube (28 runs in-22 balls).

In reply, the Kangaroos got off to a horrible start as opener David Warner gave his wicket away in the very first over of the Aussie inning. Following Warner’s dismissal, the duo of captain Mitchell Marsh (37 runs in 28 deliveries) and Travis Head (76 runs in 43 deliveries) got involved in an 81 run partnership for the second wicket and helped their team to get back into the game.

However, Marsh had to go back to the pavilion as Axar Patel took a blinder of a catch off the bowling of Kuldeep Yadav. Following the dismissal of captain Mitchell Marsh, hard hitting all-rounder Glenn Maxwell arrived at the crease and played a good hand of 20 runs in 12 deliveries but he too fell prey to the outstanding googly of Kuldeep Yadav.

The 2021 winners kept on losing wickets at regular intervals but Travis Head kept his side in the chase till the end. But, star Indian fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah removed the southpaw in the 17th over and him getting out meant that the Australian’s small hope of winning the match vanished completely as well.

The Mitchell Marsh-led team eventually ended the game with a score of 181-7 and lost the match by 24 runs. Fast bowler Arshdeep Singh managed to pick up three decisive wickets for his team and Kuldeep Yadav got two scalps next to his name as well. The duo of Axar Patel and Jasprit Bumrah picked up a wicket each.
