Team India will face Zimbabwe in the Group 2 Super 12 stage of ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 with one eye on the semi-final spot. Rohit Sharma’s India must win this clash if they want to qualify for the semi-finals. Not to forget, Pakistan also plays against Bangladesh in their last group match just before the IND vs ZIM match. If Bangladesh beats Pakistan, India will have less pressure on itself to enter the match in Zimbabwe. But in case Pakistan wins, India will have to beat Zimbabwe to qualify. That’s how chaotic Group 2 is at the moment. Zimbabwe, the Netherlands are the 2 parties that have been eliminated so far.

Will rain affect the game?
The chance of rain affecting the match is much smaller. According to bom.gov.au, Australia’s official weather update website, Melbourne will have 30 percent precipitation for Nov. 6 (Sunday). The website also states that conditions will be partly cloudy. There is one thing that the website clearly states, which is that the probability of rain is zero percent. This is good news for the cricket fans as they can watch a full 40-over match. So far, none of India’s 4 matches have been lost in this tournament. The last match against Bangladesh was cut short and did not affect India’s chances.

Will India qualify for the semi-finals if the match is flushed out?
There is a chance of rain on Sunday. But even if it rains and the game is washed away, it will work for India. Rohit Sharma’s side will still qualify for the semi-finals. Why? Pakistan can only get 6 points if they beat Bangladesh. India is already on 6 points and a 1 point from a lost match will take them to the semi-finals. But that’s only when the match is completely washed out. If it rains halfway through the match, the DLS method will be applied.
