ICC Champions Trophy semi-final: India may reach final even without playing against Bangladesh

India and Bangladesh are all set to play the second semi-final of the ICC Champions Trophy on 15 June.

Rain is expected play spoilsport in the much-anticipated encounter. Indian fans, however, don't have anything to worry about because even if rain washes the match- India will eventually qualify for the final because of the better run rate.

India has four points while Bangladesh only has three, which will eventually push Men-in-blue to the tournament's final.

Moreover, India is above Bangladesh even in the case of Net Run Rate.

India defeated Pakistan by 124 runs and South Africa by 8 wickets to book their spot in the semi-finals but lost to Sri Lanka by 7 wickets.

The team's big victories helped them gain the Net Run Rate (NRR) of +1.370.

In the other group, Bangladesh only defeated New Zealand in their last group match by five-wicket.

But England's win over Australia helped Bangladesh to finish at the second position with three points and eventually qualified for the semi-final.

This is the first time that Bangladesh made it to the semi-final in Champions Trophy. But they don't have a good run rate (NRR)- 0.000.
