Team India has been in excellent form in the ICC World Twenty20. With four wins from four matches in the Super-10 stage, the Men in Blue have also toppled Sri Lanka to take the top-spot in the ICC T20I team rankings. The 2007 champions now face South Africa in the semis - to be played on Friday (April 4). Past statistics of matches between the two teams also put Mahendra Singh Dhoni's men as favourites to win the match. (Also read: Yuvraj misses practice session due to ankle injury)

India have played seven T20I matches against the Proteas overall and have won five of them (winning percentage of 71.42). The record in WT20 events is even better with India emerging victors three out of the four times that the two teams have faced off (winning percentage of 75). And the team's current form indicates that there may not be much chance for South Africa to improve their record at Mirpur on Friday either.
