Will India qualify for semifinals if the match is washed out?

There is possibility of rain on Sunday. But even if it rains and the game is washed out, it will work for India. Rohit Sharma’s side will still qualify for semifinals. Why? Pakistan can only get to 6 points if they beat Bangladesh. India are already on 6 points and a 1 point from washed out match will take them through to semis. But that is only when the match is totally washed out. If rain falls midway through the match, then DLS method will be applied.
