New Zealand beat Afghanistan, India out of T20 World Cup semi-final

India have a match left against Namibia

India is out of the semi-final race of the T20 World Cup after New Zealand defeated Afghanistan by eight wickets to grab the last remaining qualifying spot from Group 2 of the Super 12 stage in Abu Dhabi on Sunday.

Other team to qualify from the group earlier are Pakistan, who won four games on the trot to take the top spot in the group and has a game left to play against Scotland on Monday.

India, on the other hand, have a match left as well against Namibia but will be inconsequential as they are third in the table and out of the semis race as losing the first two matches in the group

The Virat Kohli side did bring themselves back in the race for the title as they defeated Afghanistan and Scotland heavily in the next two games and needed a loss for the Kiwis in their last group match against the Afghans.
