Former India woman cricketer Mithali Raj has predicted a title clash between India and New Zealand in the ongoing ICC T20 World Cup 2022 in Australia. Mithali Raj - who has made her commentary debut with the match between India and South Africa for official broadcasters Star Sports - has predicted an India-New Zealand final.

New Zealand – who are facing England in their Super 12 stage encounter on Tuesday (November 1) at The Gabba in Brisbane – are sitting at the top of the team standings in their group. While India – who suffered a defeat at the hands of South Africa in their previous Group 2 match on Sunday – are second in the team rankings. They still have two more games to go in the league stage.

Mithali Raj – who has made her commentary debut with the match between India and South Africa for official broadcasters Star Sports – has predicted an India-New Zealand final.

The legendary cricketer Raj – who retired from international cricket earlier this year after a glittering career – also picked up her semi-finalists for the showpiece event. She included South Africa and either England or defending champions Australia apart from India and New Zealand.

“My predictions for the 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,” she told Star Sports.
