India wins = W = 2 pt

India loses = L = 0 pt

India draws = D = 1 pt

Total matches played by India = 4

This means that the total points needs to be 7 at least

Either India wins all 4 matches or India wins 3 and draws 1

the probability of WWWW = (0.5)*(0.5)*(0.5)*(0.5) = 0.0625

India wins 3 matches and draws 1: probability in that case = (0.5)*(0.5)*(0.5)*(0.05) = 0.00625

The 4 possible outcomes will be:

WWWD, WWDW, WDWW, DWWW

Total probability of India wins 3 matches and draws 1 = 4*(0.00625) = 0.025

P( total points have to be at least 7) = 0.0625 + 0.025 = 0.0875
