match between india and australia on sunday Australia needs to win at all costs

New Delhi. After the defeat against Afghanistan, Australia's path to the semi-finals of the T20 World Cup has become a little difficult. If Australia had won this match, it would have got a ticket to the semi-finals for itself as well as India, but this did not happen. Afghanistan made a big upset in the World Cup by defeating Australia by 21 runs in its second Super 8 match. The Australian team will face India after just 36 hours. This match is a do or die for them. However, despite the defeat against Afghanistan, Australian captain Mitchell Marsh says that there is no pressure of any kind on his team and his team performs best only under pressure.

Australia will now have to not only win their last match of Super 8 against India (IND vs AUS) but also maintain a good net run rate. Mitchell Marsh told reporters, 'This is an important match. Which will be against India. We have to win it at all costs. If we look at the history of this team, our players perform their best under pressure. Our players will definitely be fully prepared for this. Things are clear for us now. We have to trust ourselves. We have very good players and I believe that we have been performing our best against the best teams. We have to forget everything and move forward and perform our best.'
