India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni insists his side have had no problem focusing on the World Twenty20 despite the controversy surrounding cricket in their country.
A Supreme Court investigation into allegations of corruption at the Indian Premier League has been ongoing during the tournament, with BCCI president N Srinivasan forced to temporarily step down from his role as a result.
There was also a proposal that Dhoni's franchise Chennai Super Kings, as well as Rajasthan Royals, would be suspended from this year's IPL, though that is now off the table.
Against this turbulent background India have progressed serenely on the field, cruising to three successive wins and becoming the first side to seal a semi-final slot.
They finish their Group Two campaign against an underperforming Australia side on Sunday, with Dhoni happy his team can continue keeping their eye on the prize.
"A lot of things happen around cricket but you have to be focused when you are representing your country," he said. "That is one thing that this team has done really well.
"We do not really discuss all that because one of the facts is you are supposed to play well. That is what the criteria is."
India's ability to play and bowl spin has been a key factor to their success on a turning track in Dhaka, a good sign for the 2007 champions with the semi-finals and finals taking place at the same venue.
"We play in the subcontinent quite a few games, so we've had the right kind of exposure," he added.
"We knew the kind of problems we could face when it comes to bowling and batting and we had to work on that. Once you know the problem area, you can work on it."
Australia captain George Bailey accepts his team are probably heading for an early exit even if they upset India, having been beaten already by Pakistan and West Indies.
"When we looked at the start of the tournament we thought you could probably afford to lose one, but I'm not sure you can afford to lose two," he said.
"We've lost two tight games but it's not as though we've been knocked over for 120. We've just lost two close games in a tournament where you can't afford to lose two close games."
