Team India, after losing to Pakistan and New Zealand, has made a bold statement in a daunting way winning by huge margins against Afghanistan and Scotland. They first beat Mohammad Nabi and his men by 10 wickets, then put up an even better show against Scotland, winning with 81 balls to spare to make their NRR the best in the group.
Their fate, however, is not in their hands. All eyes will be on the match between New Zealand and Afghanistan, which will take place in Abu Dhabi on November 7. The Kiwis will qualify for the semi-finals if they win, and India’s aspirations will be shattered. However, if Afghanistan defeats New Zealand, India will have a great chance to defeat Namibia by a large margin and get to the last four.
During the post-match press conference, Ravindra Jadeja, the player of the match in the game against Scotland, was presented with a question about qualification. One of the reporters inquired about the team’s plans if New Zealand did not lose to Afghanistan. The all-rounder responded to the topic with a funny reaction, claiming that the team will pack their bags and return home.
Question: Abhi baatein chal rahi hain ki agar New Zealand Afghanistan se haar jaata hai to humara chance banega. But agar NZ haarta hi nahi hai to kya karenge?
Ravindra Jadeja: Toh phir bag pack kar ke ghar jayenge aur kya
