Senior India wicketkeeper-batter, Dinesh Karthik has stated that the semifinalists of the ODI World Cup 2023 are already locked.

Talking about India’s performances, they have been the dominant team throughout and have won all 6 of their games.

Moreover, they have also shown great intent and meant business in each and every game that has gotten them success.

Now, leading the points table with 12 points, every fan now hopes that the hosts will go all the way.

Says Karthik on India’s performance in the World Cup,

I think with this win and with what happened yesterday (Australia defeating New Zealand), we are locked in for the four semifinalists. It could be a tournament where it has been decided early, and it looks more likely that will be the case unless something extraordinary happens, which I personally don’t think will happen.

Karthik says that India will finish as the No.1 side in the group stage

Furthermore, Karthik says that with the No.1 spot decided, it all depends on who will go on to bag the No.2, 3, and 4 in the group stage.

We have the four semifinalists; it’s just a matter of who is going to be No.2, No.3, and No.4. I think we pretty much know who No.1 is going to be, so it is going to be a question of who is going to be facing India and who No.2 and No.3 are. It is not being cocky; it is just with the quality of cricket they are playing.

India’s next task is against Sri Lanka at Mumbai’s iconic Wankhede Stadium on the 2nd of November.

Meanwhile, the hosts will look to win their 7th game on the trot and continue to remain No.1.
