Zimbabwe is all but out of the Men's T20 World Cup after a five-wicket defeat by the Netherlands in Adelaide.

Maxwell O'Dowd hit a composed 52 from 46 balls as the Dutch chased down their target of 118 with 12 balls to spare.

Zimbabwe needs an extraordinary set of results to reach the semi-finals, including a heavy win over India in their final Group 2 game on Sunday.

In other matches, India moved to the brink of a semi-final spot with a tense five-run victory over Bangladesh in a rain-affected World Cup match.

They were given a scare by the Tigers, who raced to 66-0 in seven overs, chasing 185, thanks to Litton Das' 21-ball fifty before rain stopped play.

Bangladesh were 17 runs ahead of the Duckworth-Lewis-Stern (DLS) par score but saw their target revised to 151 off 16 overs.

India is now top of Group 2 and victory in their final game against Zimbabwe will guarantee their place in the semi-finals, while Bangladesh needs to beat Pakistan and hope other results go their way.

Earlier, KL Rahul's fifty and Virat Kohli's third half-century of the tournament helped India post 184-6.
