India will take on England on November 10, 2022 in the 2nd semi-final of the Men’s T20 World Cup 2022. The match will be played at the Adelaide Oval Stadium and it will begin at local time and IST. There is no prediction for the rain.
India: Rohit Sharma (c), KL Rahul, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Deepak Hooda, Rishabh Pant, Dinesh Karthik, Hardik Pandya, R Ashwin, Yuzvendra Chahal, Axar Patel, Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Harshal Patel, Arshdeep Singh
England: Jos Buttler (c), Moeen Ali, Harry Brook, Sam Curran, Chris Jordan, Liam Livingstone, Dawid Malan, Adil Rashid, Phil Salt, Ben Stokes, Reece Topley, David Willey, Chris Woakes, Mark Wood, Alex Hales.
India has been impressive throughout the tournament. They won 4 out their 5 matches in the Super-12 stage and progressed to the semi-final. Their only loss in this tournament came against South Africa. There have been some exceptional performances from the Indian players in this event.
Virat Kohli is the substantial player of India and he once again proved his worth in this tournament. He has been remarkable in this tournament. Kohli scored 246 runs in the 5 matches that he has played until now in this World Cup. He just got the ICC player of the month award as well in October. Another star performer to emerge from the Indian squad is Suryakumar Yadav, who has been appreciated by many legendary cricketers for his striking and aggressive batting style. He plays versatile shots and has 225 runs in 5 2022 World Cup matches. While the captain Rohit Sharma is out of form these days, his performance will be crucial for his team in the match against England while KL Rahul’s comeback is a good omen for India as we have seen this in the match against Bangladesh and then Netherlands, where he contributed with bat.
The kind of performances Arshdeep, Bhuvneshwar and Md Shami have given until now in this tournament have benefitted India immensely. Bhuvneshwar has the most dot balls bowled by a bowler in this World Cup. The Indian team currently has 4 pacers in it which is a good strategy considering Australian pitches favor pace bowlers. The Indian team is looking like a very balanced side
England’s team as expected has performed tremendously well in this tournament. They qualified for the semi-final with their consistent performance in this world cup.
Other than this event, their recent performance, especially in the T20 format has been sensational. They won a 7 match T20I series against Pakistan just before the World Cup. Even in the T20 World Cup 2021, they played some brilliant cricket and reached the semi-finals.
Alex Hales is back in the squad. So, Jos Buttler and Alex Hales are opening the innings for England and both have provided England with explosive starts in the past. Jos Buttler, the England’s team captain, has been in ideal form. Two of the best sloggers of the ball are Dawid Malan, though he is struggling to perform in this event and is doubtful for the match against India and Liam Livingstone is in the England’s team. They have serious strength in their bat and can hit some magnificent shots.
Harry Brook, a youngster is a new entry to the English team. While In pace bowling, they have the likes of Sam Curran, Chris Woakes, Mark Wood, who bowled one of the fastest delivery of this event but he is doubtful as well for the match against India so there are chances that Chris Jordan will replace him in the playing 11 while the spin bowling will be handled by Adil Rashid and Moeen Ali.
Prediction of IND vs ENG 2nd Semi-Final
It’s quite difficult to predict the result for this match as both teams have such players who are considered one of the best in the World. It would be a close contest and the chances of winning for both the teams are equal.
IND vs ENG 2nd Semi-Final Further Details
The 2nd Semi-final of the Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 will be held at Adelaide Oval Stadium which is situated in Adelaide, South Australia.
Its field size is 167×124 metres and it has the capacity of 53500 people. The first international match hosted by this stadium was a test match that was played between England and Australia in 1874. It was the host of the 1st Day and Night Test match in which Australia and New Zealand were head to head in 2015.
It has flat pitches and is a good batting pitch. The Adelaide Oval Stadium hosts the drop-in pitches which means that the pitches are prepared away from the venue and are dropped-in when there is a match scheduled in the stadium
Talking about the stats, 8 T20I matches have been played here thus far and the team bowling first has won 4 while the team bowling 2nd won 3. The average 1st inning score is 155 while for the 2nd inning it’s 144. We can conclude, if we talk about T20I, that team bowling first has more chances of winning. The highest total recorded here is 232, that was by Australia against Sri Lanka. Most of the time, the patch here supports the batters, so hitting 150+ here shouldn’t be a big deal.
86 ODI matches have been played in this Stadium upto now and 47 were won by the team batting first while 37 by the team batting second. In the ODI format, team batting 1st gets the advantage here.
The stadium will also host 6 other group stage and Super 12 matches of the Men’s T20 World Cup.
The last Men’s T20 World was won by Australia in 2021. They are the current trophy holders. The New Zealand team was the runner up of that World Cup as they lost to Australia in the final. The 2021 T20 World Cup was held in UAE. The first semi-final of the 2021 T20 World cup was played between England and New Zealand on 10 Nov 2021 and the 2nd semi-final was played between Pakistan and Australia on 11 Nov 2021.
India was supposed to host the 2021 T20 World cup but couldn’t do so due to the increasing number of COVID-19 cases in the country and there was fear that the tournament might get affected by it. So they shifted it to the UAE.
