India vs England or South Africa in T20 World Cup semifinal: Who could Rohit Sharma’s men face if they beat Australia?

India will take on their arch rivals Australia in their crucial 2024 T20 World Cup Super 8 clash on June 24, which will play a decisive role on who ultimately qualifies for the semi-final from their Group 1. After England defeated the USA and South Africa clinched yet another close-call win against West Indies, the two sides sealed their spot in the T20 World Cup semi-final from their Super 8 Group 2. Now, the focus of cricket fans will shift to whom the Rohit Sharma-led India will face in the final four, if they beat Mitchell Marsh-led Australia.

This highly-anticipated clash at the Arnos Vale Ground in Kingstown, Saint Vincent, will present a golden chance to Rohit’s India side to script a long-desired revenge over their rivals in Australia, for their defeat in the 2023 ODI World Cup final in Ahmedabad. However, the bigger and present focus will be whether India will be able to knock out Marsh’s Australia, provided Rashid Khan-led Afghanistan can continue their brilliance and script an emphatic win over Bangladesh on June 25. With a massive net-run-rate to their advantage, India just need to secure a win against Afghanistan to seal the top spot in Group 1.
