England, India, focuses on their semis match

India and England are ready to lock horns on their semi-finals match on November 10, 2022, at 3:30 PM (GMT+8). These two teams are two of the favorites to enter the semi-finals for this edition. However, during the group stage, many are quite disappointed with how their campaign turned out. Although they managed to be at the top of their group, they still failed to reach the expectations of them. Since these two squads met a lot of times already, the players are all familiar with each other. Hence, players from both teams know the strengths and weaknesses of each other.

India tops their group with four wins of their five matches, with South Africa as their only loss. This squad was able to win against their rivals, Pakistan, Netherlands, Zimbabwe, and Bangladesh. As for England, they are also doing well in their group, despite finishing at the second spot. They won three of their five meetings, qualifying them for the semi-finals. However, when they lost on their meeting with Ireland, many were surprised with the result, making them doubt England. As they now have the chance to redeem themselves, India and England will now prove why they are at the top of their standings.

India is hungry to win the ICC T20 World Cup as they last tasted the ICC title way back 2013. After that year, they only reached the finals and the semi-finals for the past ICC editions, but have yet to win another title. This time, they want to break that streak, as they are so eager to finally win a trophy after nearly a decade. However, their journey may be tough as they will meet a opponent who mustered confidence in this tournament.

Suryakumar Yadav, Virat Kohli, Arshdeep Singh, and Hardik Pandya are the ones leading the Indian squad in the bat and ball. Kohli leads in the run-scoring with 246 runs, while Yadav is on the second with 225 runs. However, their problem is that Rohit Sharma is not doing well recently, who is almost misfiring for this team. This is a big problem for India, and they need to address this as soon as possible.

This team have been through ups and downs this 2022 ICC T20 World Cup, especially when they lost against Ireland. On that match, many believed that they will take home the victory as they are considered to be much stronger than their opponent. However, when they lost against Ireland, many started doubting their capabilities. Take note that not because they lost against Ireland, it already means that they cannot win in this match. In fact, they are doing well in bowling, which is their biggest advantage going in this match. Additionally, they are also doing an excellent job in batting, making them dangerous in that field.

There are reports that says that Dawid Malan might not be available in this match, which is a big problem for England. In case his absence is confirmed, Phil Salt can step up for him.
