India have to win their next two games if they are to reach the finals of the tri-series involving Australia and Sri Lanka.
India play Australia in Sydney Sunday while they meet Sri Lanka in Hobart Tuesday. India are at the bottom of the table with 10 points, one point behind Sri Lanka, who are three points behind Australia.
India have failed to register a victory after they beat Australia in the fourth match at Adelaide by four wickets. They tied with Sri Lanka in the next match and since then have been beaten comprehensively by both their opponents. India lost to Sri Lanka by 51 runs Tuesday.
India will need to win both the games to be sure of a place in the finals while if they lose to Australia, they would have to rely on Sri Lanka losing the rest of their three matches.
