India take on Australia in a virtual quarter-final this evening at Mohali.
The other three semi-final places have already been booked.
West Indies, New Zealand and England are through to the business end of the World T20.
India are favourites having thrashed the Kangaroos 3-0 Down Under but not before losing the ODI series 1-4.
No team has won the World T20 more than once.
Every edition has been unpredictable.
India, Pakistan, England, West Indies and Sri Lanka have all been crowned victors in this topsy-turvy format.
With no time for recovery from any mistakes, the team which turns up wins.
A stellar performance with the bat or ball is more than enough to decide a game.
If past trends hold, we ought to have a new champion.
Should Australia win tonight and the trend continue, it could be either New Zealand or Australia lifting the trophy, with the prospect of a mouth-watering repeat of last year’s ODI World Cup final.
Indian fans will be disappointed though.
This is probably MS Dhoni’s last T20 World Cup.
Dhoni does not see himself participating in the 2019 ODI World Cup.
Don’t be surprised if Mahi pulls out yet another rabbit from his hat and calls it a day—win or lose.
