Chopra is highlighted that Team India’s group has become relatively easier.
“Scotland and Ireland/Namibia will come in India’s group. Group 2 has suddenly become a cakewalk. Things are easier in India’s group because of India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, New Zealand,” Aakash Chopra said.
“Upsets can happen but I am not expecting too many upsets there. The upset could be Scotland beating New Zealand but Ireland/Namibia defeating India – nothing like that is going to happen,” Chopra added.

Moreover, India, Pakistan, and New Zealand are likely to fight. It is out for the two semi-finals under Group 2. While Afghanistan, Scotland, and Ireland/Namibia could cause an upset or two. But are unlikely to make the semi-finals. Chopra pointed out that the entry of Bangladesh and Sri Lanka. They are almost certain to join the group. Which has made Group 1 even tougher.
“Group 1, which was already the Group of Death, will see an amazing dogfight now because Sri Lanka and Bangladesh are going to reach Group 1. This is incredible, two Asian teams have joined the group and a lot of encounters will be played in Sharjah,” Chopra said.
“It is going to be so much fun. Bangladesh and Sri Lanka must be happier actually to go in that pool because the chances of things turning topsy-turvy in that group have increased,” Chopra added.
Lastly, the low and slow Sharjah surface will certainly help the Bangladesh and Sri Lanka tweakers. While Bangladesh will play West Indies in Sharjah, Sri Lanka will cross with South Africa and England. At the same venue if they finish as the Group A table-toppers. Bangladesh and Sri Lanka will play each other on October 24.
