With South Africa losing to the Netherlands, India has qualified for the semis of the T20 World Cup. It is a great turnaround after the disappointment last year. Here, we take a look at how Twitter reacted as India qualifies for the T20 World Cup Semi-Finals.
India qualifies for the T20 World Cup Semi-Finals
It is the final day of the Super 12 stage on Sunday. Yet, no squad from the Group 2 have sealed their spot yet in the semi-finals. Nevertheless, with each game on November 6th, there will be clarity on who will reach the semis.
Team India started well in the Super 12 stage with a victory over Pakistan. Although at one point it seemed they would lose the game, Virat Kohli ensured that the mistake of last year was not going to repeat. He scored some stunning shots to take India home. Later, India did well against the Netherlands to get two more points on the board. Against South Africa, though, India lost control of the game. The batters struggled against the high-end pace and posted a small total. The Proteas reached the target with a few hiccups. The Bangladesh match went down to the wire but eventually, India won the match. On Sunday, the team will meet Zimbabwe. However, prior to the match, India qualified for the semis. With South Africa losing to the Netherlands, no other team can displace India from the Top 2 positions. Therefore, it will play in the semis.

Last year, India did not enter the semis of the T20 WC. It was a great disappointment because India is a powerhouse and not doing well in the T20 format hurt the fans and the players. However, the management has made a lot of changes since then. The team has improved now and it showed on the field. Here is how Twitter reacted:
