Team India’s 3 big tension against England
Captain Rohit Sharma’s batting
Team India’s biggest problem is captain Rohit Sharma’s batting. Rohit Sharma has scored only 89 runs in the matches played so far. Including a half-century against the Netherlands. But the kind of batsman Rohit Sharma is, such performance cannot be expected from him. His early dismissal puts a lot of pressure on the middle-order batsmen including Virat. Although Virat and Suryakumar Yadav have played good roles so far. The good thing is that Virat’s form is back at the right time.
Slow run rate in Powerplay
Team India is not able to take advantage of Powerplay. With the opening pair getting out early, the pressure builds up and the new batsmen are forced to play slow in the power play to play more carefully. Not getting a good start in the initial powerplay leads to a ‘do or die’ situation in the second powerplay. In such a situation, if a batsman like Suryakumar Yadav does not play, then the score may remain low.
Spin bowler’s edge blunt
Team India’s fast bowling is fine at this time. Arshdeep is taking wickets in the opening overs. He is getting good support from Bhuvneshwar and Mohammed Shami. But the biggest tension for India is becoming spin bowling. R Ashwin is definitely taking wickets but he gets beaten up fiercely in a single over. Same is the case with Axar Patel. However, Yuzvendra Chahal has not been tried yet. England batsmen play spin well. Both spin bowlers can be easy prey in the field of Adelaide.
In the recent few days, it has been seen that there has been a lot of decline in the fielding of Team India. Poor fielding has also been one of the major reasons for the defeat in the match against South Africa. Markram and Miller were given life due to India’s poor fielding. Later, Markram and Miller scored fifties to give victory.
How is the pitch of Adelaide
The Adelaide ground where India and England is going to play the semi-final match, its pitch is good for batting. India has made 184 against the Netherlands in this ground. The square boundary of the ground is very small. So the bowlers have to take care of the length. Fielding placement will also matter a lot.
