2023 ICC Cricket World Cup
India has been on an impressive unbeaten streak in the 2023 World Cup, winning their first seven games. On the other hand, South Africa has shown their dominance, breaking numerous records, including the highest total, second-fastest century, and most centuries in the tournament.
As it stands, India has already qualified for the semi-finals. South Africa, with its strong performance, is on the verge of securing a semi-final spot as well. However, the outcome of their match against India will play a crucial role in determining their fate.
If South Africa manages to defeat India, they will likely seal their place in the semi-finals. However, if South Africa loses to India and also faces defeat in their last league game, it could open the door for other teams like Pakistan, Afghanistan, Sri Lanka, and the Netherlands to make their way into the semi-finals. The race for the semi-final spots remains intense and unpredictable in this edition of the ICC Cricket World Cup.
