With each passing day, we are inching towards the knockout stage of the ongoing T20 World Cup. With the Super 12 stage about to mark its conclusion, fans and experts have started predicting their potential Semifinalists and finalists for the competition. 

Legendary former India Women's captain Mithali Raj has also shared her thoughts in this regard. Speaking to the official broadcaster Star Sports, Mithali backed India, South Africa, New Zealand, and one between the Ashes rivals Australia and England to make it into the semis. Going a step ahead, she predicted India and New Zealand to lock horns in the Grand Finale. 

Here's what Mithali opined

"My predictions for semi-final spot, that is four spots will be India and South Africa from Group 2. From Group 1, it will be New Zealand and a toss-up between England and Australia. And the finalists, there is no doubt, India has to be there, and New Zealand."

As it stands, South Africa and India look all set to qualify for the semifinals from Group 2, while there's some twist to the tale in Group 1. With England, Australia and New Zealand involved in an intense tussle, it's next to impossible to predict two semifinal contenders from the group with the utmost accuracy.
