Talking about the former India skipper, he is enjoying a great time with the bat. In the games against Pakistan, Netherlands, and Bangladesh, he scored half-centuries and remained unbeaten. He only got out in the game against South Africa. The right-hander is the highest run-getter in the tournament with 220 runs in four games at an average of 220. Also, his strike rate has been 144.73.
Talking about the former champions, they have only lost to the Proteas and are set to play the semis. However, the team won’t take their Southern African opponents (Zimbabwe) lightly. Everyone has seen what they are capable of especially after bringing Pakistan on a brink of elimination. Notably, Pakistan would now want to win their game against Bangladesh which will be played right before the India-Zimbabwe game. The 2009 winners would also want Zimbabwe to win their last game.
