Earlier, Bangladesh’s three-run win over Zimbabwe in a Group 2 Super 12 match boosted its chances of advancing to semis of the 2022 T20 World Cup in Australia. Bangladesh now needs to win against India and Pakistan over the next week. Bangladesh’s win had kept Pakistan alive in the race, especially after the latter’s six-wicket win over the Netherlands. But the result of the India match has dented Pakistan’s hopes.
South Africa beating India puts Temba Bavuma’s men in a great spot to qualify. A South Africa win also keeps Bangladesh in the hunt.
