After a dramatic Sunday in Adelaide and Melbourne, the identities of the final semifinalists were confirmed. India and Pakistan qualified from Group 2 in that order, after a stunning win for Netherlands against South Africa.
The day started with one of biggest upsets in the tournament’s history as Temba Bavum and Co were left stunned by Netherlands in Adelaide to be knocked out of the tournament. That made the Pakistan vs Bangladesh match a quarterfinal and Babar Azam’s men came through a nervy affair.
India then topped Group 2 with a big win, defeating Zimbabwe by 71 runs as Suryakumar Yadav starred with one of the knocks of the tournament.
