Whatever happened to Australia in the T20 World Cup, if it had been Pakistan, there would have been an uproar


New Delhi. The battle for the semi-finals in the ICC T20 World Cup has become even more interesting. So far only 1 team has secured a place in the Super 8. The England team has confirmed its ticket to the semi-finals with a thumping 10-wicket win against the USA. The Australian team is going to play a do or die match against India. This time the ICC has made such a schedule in which the Kangaroo team has to play two matches in two consecutive days. The team is not going to get a chance to rest.

The Super 8 matches will end on 25th June. With the match between Afghanistan and Bangladesh, all the teams for the semi-finals will be confirmed. Out of the four teams in Group 1, India's claim seems to be the strongest. Australia faced an upset against Afghanistan. After this defeat, it will have to defeat India by a big margin or else its hopes of reaching the semi-finals will almost end. The biggest problem in front of the team is that it has to play matches for the second consecutive day.

If what happened in Australia had happened in Pakistan, there would have been an uproar
In the Super 8 of the ICC T20 World Cup, the Australian team played its match against the Afghanistan team on Sunday 23 June. The next day on Monday 24 June, the team has to play against India again. Playing two matches in two days is very difficult for any team. Players do not get a chance to rest to recover from fatigue. The amazing thing is that the Australian team is so professional that no one talked about this. If this had happened with Pakistan, everyone from former players to the cricket board would have created a ruckus over it.
