India secured the semifinal berth of the T20 World Cup 2024 during their last Super 8 game against Australia in Gros Islet on Monday, June 24. Rohit Sharma's 92 off just 41 balls helped India post a big total of 205 and Australia failed to chase it inside 15.3 overs resulting in India securing an automatic qualification before the game ended. 

India became the third team after England and South Africa to qualify for the semifinal. Australia and Afghanistan battle for the remaining spot as the latter face Bangladesh in the last Super 8 round game in Kingston on Tuesday. India will face the defending champions England in the second semifinal at Providence Stadium in Guyana on June 27. 

Australia kept the game balanced for the majority of the innings with opener Travis Head smashing 76 runs off just 43 balls and

Mitchell Marsh adding quick 37 runs. Kuldeep Yadav proved the game-changer with two timely wickets and Arshdeep Singh picked three wickets to restrict Australia to 181/7 in 20 overs.

India's superior net run rate after big wins over Afghanistan and Bangladesh proved crucial for India to secure an early semifinal qualification. Australia still remain favourites to earn a semifinal spot due to their positive net run rate.
