Former spinner Harbhajan Singh is confident of Team India going all the way in the ongoing ICC Men's T20 World Cup 2024. Team India have been one of the most dominant teams in the competition so far and are looking destined to qualify for the semifinals.

India are yet to lose a game in the ninth edition of the T20 World Cup. In the group stage, they won three of their four games while one game was abandoned due to a wet outfield. In tough batting conditions, India beat the likes of Ireland, Pakistan, and the USA in low-scoring games as their bowlers starred in all the games.

In the first Super 8 game, the Rohit Sharma-led side came up with a clinical effort with both bat and ball. Batting first, India scored 181 for 8 in the allotted 20 overs on a tough batting pitch thanks to a brilliant half-century from Suryakumar Yadav. The bowlers then made light work of Afghanistan's batting challenge as they bowled them out for just 134 to power Team India to a 47-run win.

With Team India doing well in the T20 World Cup so far, Harbhajan Singh has heaped praise on them and has backed them to end the country's long wait for a World Cup title. The former India spinner pointed out that every player has made a significant contribution to India's fine run so far and if the team manages to play with the same determination, it can win the T20 World Cup for the first time since 2007.

"Our team has shown exceptional form in the T20 World Cup so far, with every player in the playing 11 contributing significantly. We have been playing our A-game ticking all the boxes. The boys are in great touch, and the confidence is high.

"If we continue to play with the same determination, intensity, and passion I do not doubt that we can get over the line and bring the World Cup home for the first time after 2007," Harbhajan Singh said, as quoted by IANS, on Disney+ Hotstar.

After beating Afghanistan in the first Super 8 clash, Team India will be locking horns against Bangladesh on Saturday (June 22) in their second game. A win over Bangladesh will all but secure India's passage to the semifinals.

Team India will be desperate to go all the way to end the team's long wait for an ICC trophy. India have not won the World Cup in any format since 2011 while their last ICC trophy came in 2013. Last year, India lost the finals of the ODI World Cup as well as the World Test Championship and will be looking to clinch the ongoing T20 World Cup.
