India is in a precarious position on the Super 4s points table following their opening Super 4 match loss to Pakistan by a score of 5 wickets. They have 0 points after 1 match and an NRR of -0.126, placing them third among the four teams as of right now.
Sri Lanka is in first place in the standings with 2 points (one victory through one game) and an NRR of +0.589. Pakistan, which has also won one of its first games played, is in second place just after SL in terms of NRR (+0.126).
This practically makes tonight’s Super 4 encounter between India and Sri Lanka in Dubai a game that Rohit Sharma and company must win. India will only have one more Super 4 game to play, which will be against Afghanistan on Thursday, September 8, following tonight’s encounter against Sri Lanka.
As of now, each of the four teams that have qualified for the Super 4s has participated in one match. India and Afghanistan are still looking for their first points, while Sri Lanka and Pakistan have each won a game.
