No, the Indian team is definitely not going into the semifinals. I think it will be SA and ENG. In a way your right, SA and ENG are better teams in terms of performance. I will give you some reasons for them. Now, you may not agree with some of them or i may have missed a point but the fact remanis the same. 1.The team is inexperienced in the T20 format. Before this world cup India has played only 1 T20 game. 2.Loss of 4 of the most senior players (Dravid, Sachin, Saurav, Zaheer)will cost India this tournament. 3. The team is not yet performing as a team. 4. Fielding needs to improve. New young players in the side has not done anything to raise the fielding standards. But as they say, cricket is a funny business. So, lets keep our fingers crossed and hope for a miracle, because only a miracle can help Team India now.
