IND vs AUS Super 8: India To Face England In T20 World Cup 2024 Semi-finals After Beating Australia. India secured their spot in the semi-finals of the T20 World Cup 2024 with a strong win over Australia in their final Super Eight match at St Lucia by 24 runs. This victory in Group 1 propelled India to 6 points, a tally that outpaced Australia, Afghanistan, and Bangladesh, ensuring their progression to the next stage.

Australian Captain Mitchell Marsh of Australia won the toss and chose to bowl first. Rohit Sharma, who hit seven fours and eight sixes and scored 92 out of 41 balls, eventually got out, courtesy of Mitchell Starc. Throughout the match, Rohit Sharma made history by becoming the first player to reach 200 sixes in T20I cricket, and he also set the record for the most sixes by a batter against a single opponent in international cricket. India scored a total of 205/5 in a 20-over game they played with Australia at St Lucia.

During the second innings, Australia attempted to chase the impossible 206-run target set by India. At the beginning of the match, David Warner was caught out by Arshdeep Singh. After that, however, Travis Head and Mitchell Marsh took charge and started to dominate the Indian bowlers. But, a magnificent catch by Axar Patel of Mitchell Marsh sends the Australian fans in shock. Subsequently, India’s bowlers effectively executed their strategies and showed discipline, ensuring they defended their total successfully.
