Reaching for a qualification score is as interesting as reaching for a target score.
Defending for a draw instead of winning on the last day of a test match is similar
Of course, it was the rain. India had packed themselves with spinners, who found it difficult because of the wet ball. The same spinners performed well against all other teams.
And anyway, Australia outperformed India, India outperformed Pakistan and Pakistan outperformed Australia
Which is what makes T20 awesome.
