India beat Australia by 24 runs in the Super 8 clash and qualified for semi-finals of the T20 World Cup 2024 on Monday. 

Chasing the 206-run target set by India, Australia could score only 181 runs in 20 overs at the loss of seven wickets. 

Earlier, India posted a formidable 205/5 at the Daren Sammy National Cricket Stadium in St. Lucia. Mitchell Marsh and his team needed to chase down 206 runs in 15.3 overs to secure a spot in the final four. 

The highlight of India's innings was captain Rohit Sharma’s explosive 92 runs off 41 balls, featuring seven fours and eight sixes, breaking multiple records in the process.

India's innings started poorly with star batter Virat Kohli returning to the pavilion without scoring. However, Sharma’s aggressive play continued despite losing his partner.

Sharma scored 29 runs in an over against Mitchell Starc, hitting four sixes and a four, igniting his charge against the Australian bowlers, which continued until the end of his innings.

The 37-year-old was on track for a century, but Starc's yorker ended his innings. After Sharma's departure, Suryakumar Yadav contributed a quick 31 runs off 16 balls, while Shivam Dube added 28 off 22.

Hardik Pandya provided a crucial 27 runs off 17 deliveries down the order, helping India reach 205/5 in 20 overs.

For Australia, Starc and Marcus Stoinis took two wickets each, Josh Hazlewood picked one, while Pat Cummins and Adam Zampa went wicketless.
