Watch: KL Rahul hits a helicopter shot against Scotland


After defeating Scotland by eight wickets, India's chances of making it to the T20 World Cup semi-finals have been greatly increased by achieving their target of 85 in only six and a half overs.

KL As a result of Rahul's remarkable 18-ball 50, India's net run-rate surpassed that of their most important rivals, with a probable boost to come against Namibia on Sunday. Currently, all they want from Afghanistan is for New Zealand to be disturbed.

On Sunday, more than a billion people across the world will be watching the Kiwis and Afghans duel it out on the field. Despite the efforts of the lower-ranking organisations, India has managed to return to its finest. In addition, Kohli's guys have climbed to the top to ensure that they perform at their highest level on the scoreboard and the NRR. If the Kiwis make a mistake, we'll have to wait until Sunday night to settle this Group.

Despite the fact that Scotland's first Twenty20 match against India was postponed during the 2007 World Cup due to rain, it is viewed as a significant achievement, albeit more of an organising post than an aim.

Kyle Coetzer, the team's manager, urged his players to be "passionate and brave" in their efforts to improve. "We can't just go to the Super 12 and come home after a couple of games. A few doorways were left open, but it is something we will have to deal with when we return."

On his 33rd birthday, Virat Kohli won a throw that had never been done before in this competition, putting them in the position to open the door for Scotland to do so, but he lasted only as long as George Munsey, whose excusal in the final over of the powerplay led to a breakdown from 27 for one to 29 for four in about 10 balls.
