T20 World Cup 2022: Team India has reached the semi-finals while topping Group 2 with four wins in Super 12. Now India is going to face England in the last 4 on Thursday 10 November. This match will be played at Adelaide Oval Ground. Before this match, Team India looks completely ready and has also reached Adelaide for the war against the British. BCCI has also shared the video of the team reaching here. While the Indian team would go into the semi-finals with 4 wins in the Super 12, England had registered 3 wins in this round and included a loss against Ireland.
The Indian team would like to beat the British in Adelaide to seal their place in the final to be held in Melbourne on November 13. At the same time, the former champion England team is also not weak and will not give up so easily. The Indian team had lost only to South Africa in their group and on the other hand it should not be forgotten that England had defeated New Zealand who finished on top of Group 1. England’s batting is their main link and in the bowling, left-arm pacer Sam Curran and star pacer Mark Wood are in good form.
Rohit Sharma’s form a matter of concern
The biggest concern for India is the poor form of captain Rohit Sharma at the moment. If Team India wants to end the 15-year wait, then it is necessary for them to come in form and play a good innings. In this World Cup, Rohit has been out in four out of five innings during the powerplay. He has scored just 89 runs in this tournament. Against the Netherlands, he played an innings of 53 runs in 39 balls, in which his catch was also missed. In this World Cup, India has lost wickets in consecutive powerplays, due to which the entire responsibility falls on the middle order. In such a situation, on the day when Surya or Virat does not run, then the team can be in trouble.
