India vs England, Match Prediction-Who Will Win The Match Between India And England? ICC T20 World Cup 2022, Semi Final 2. India will battle it out with England in the second semi-final on Thursday (November 10) at the Adelaide Oval. India topped Group B with 8 points, while England finished second in Group A with 7 points.
India have hardly put a foot wrong in ICC the T20 World Cup 2022. Only against South Africa, Rohit Sharma-led India faced defeat. In all the other four matches against Pakistan, Netherlands, Bangladesh and Zimbabwe, India have dominated with bat and ball.
India has not won any ICC events since their win in the 2013 Champions Trophy. Since then, India have reached the finals & semi-finals of two ICC T20 World Cups in 2014 and 2016. This time Rohit Sharma-led India would be keen to break the semi-final hurdle against a confident-looking England. India have looked good with bat and ball, with Suryakumar Yadav, Virat Kohli, Arshdeep Singh & Hardik Pandya doing reasonably well.
Skipper Rohit Sharma is not firing, and that will be worrisome. Virat Kohli is the leading run-scorer with 246 runs, followed by Suryakumar Yadav’s 225 runs. Arshdeep Singh has taken 10 wickets.
England have also match winners from top to bottom. Their bowling looks lethal, with Mark Wood, Sam Curran, Chris Woakes, and Adil Rashid bowling well. Sam Curran has scalped 10 wickets in four games. Mark Wood is setting the speedometer on fire, with 150kmph on a consistent basis. While England’s batting is always in the spotlight, it is their bowling that has this time looked superb. Sam Curran finished his spell against Afghanistan with the figures of 3.4-0-10-5.
The Men in Blue finally had their first defeat in the ongoing T20 World Cup 2022 against South Africa after winning against Pakistan and Netherlands. David Miller and Aiden Markram scored the fifties as South Africa secured an emphatic victory over India at Perth. The Men in Blue managed to score 133 runs for the loss of 9 wickets at the Perth Stadium in Perth on Sunday.
Suryakumar Yadav stood tall among ruins with a 68-run inning, while the batting around him capitulated under the searing pace of Proteas — Lungi Ngidi bagged 4 wickets and ran through the Indian top order, while Wayne Parnell picked 3 wickets.
South Africa moved to the top of the group 2 points table and boosted their chances of making the semi-finals after recovering from 24 for 3 to successfully chase 134 against India.
South Africa137 for 5 (Miller 59*, Markram 52, Arshdeep 2-25) beatIndia133 for 9 (Suryakumar 68, Ngidi 4-29, Parnell 3-15) by five wickets
India defeated the Netherlands by 56 runs to register their second consecutive win in the ICC T20 World Cup 2022. Electing to bat, the Men in Blue scored 179 for 2 and then restricted Netherlands to 123 for 9. India produced a solid batting display with Rohit Sharma (53), Virat Kohli (62 not out), and Suryakumar Yadav (51 not out) – all scoring scintillating fifties.
Defending, pacers Bhuvneshwar Kumar (2/9) and Arshdeep Singh (2/37) and the spin duo of Axar Patel (2/18) and Ravichandran Ashwin (2/21) shone bright with the ball for the Men in Blue. The team’s five specialist bowlers shared the wickets, with Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Arshdeep Singh, Axar Patel, and Ravichandran Ashwin picking up two apiece, and Mohammed Shami one.
India179 for 2 (Kohli 62*, Rohit 53, Suryakumar 51*) beatNetherlands123 for 9 (Bhuvneshwar 2-9, Axar 2-18) by 56 runs
The Men in Blue posted their first win of the ICC T20 World Cup 2022 on board thanks to the brilliance of former captain Virat Kohli and all-rounder Hardik Pandya. However, the win was not without its hiccups along the way against arch-rivals Pakistan at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG).
Hardik Pandya was impressive with the ball as well against Pakistan, picking up three important wickets and scoring 40 runs with the bat, putting on a record 113 runs for the fifth wicket with Virat Kohli who scored 82*.
Virat Kohli single-handedly powered India to an epic four-wicket win over arch-rivals Pakistan with a magnificent 53-ball 82 not out in their big-ticket ICC T20 World Cup 2022 game. Pakistan recovered from a wobbly start to post a fighting 159 for eight. India completed the chase in the last ball, with Virat Kohli and Hardik Pandya (40) doing the bulk of the scoring after a horror start to their innings.
The two revived India with a 113-run stand for the fourth wicket after they were reeling at 31/4 at one stage. Sent in to bat, Pakistan were well served by Iftikhar Ahmed’s 34-ball 51 and Shan Masood’s unbeaten 52 off 42 balls after they lost their first two wickets with just 15 runs on the board in the fourth over. Arshdeep Singh picked both openers in form Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan.
India160 for 6 (Kohli 82*, Hardik 40) beatPakistan159 for 8 (Masood 52*, Iftikhar 51, Arshdeep 3-32, Hardik 3-30) by four wickets
India had made a commanding total of 184 for 6, thanks mainly to a superlative return to the runs for KL Rahul (50 off 32), and another chapter in Virat Kohli’s spectacular form, as he made 66 not out of 44. Suryakumar Yadav’s 30 off 16 helped too. But when Litton Das blasted seven fours and three sixes inside the first seven overs, Bangladesh had an excellent foundation. They were 66 for no loss when rains interrupted and curtailed the match.
They should have been confident of scoring the 85 needed off the last nine overs (54 balls) upon resumption, particularly as the field was likely to be greasy following the downpour. But the opener Litton Das’ run-out for 60 turned the rain-hit game on its head as India won the thriller by 5 runs.
India184 for 6 (Kohli 64, Rahul 50, Mahmud 3-47, Shakib 2-33) beatBangladesh 145 for 6 (Litton 60, Hardik 2-28, Arshdeep 2-38) by five runs on the DLS method
India beat Zimbabwe by 71 runs to top the group and set up the T20 World Cup semifinal against England. Earlier, Suryakumar Yadav hit a blistering half-century to spur India to 186/5 against Zimbabwe in their last group match in the T20 World Cup on Sunday.
Opting to bat first after winning the toss, skipper Rohit Sharma was dismissed early but KL Rahul carried on to score a 35-ball 51. Suryakumar Yadav then smashed an unbeaten 61 from 25 balls. In reply, Zimbabwe were bowled out for 115 in 17.2 overs. Ravichandran Ashwin finished things off, taking 3 for 22 from his four overs.
India186 for 5 (Suryakumar 61*, Rahul 51, Williams 2-9) beatZimbabwe115 (Burl 35, Raza 34, Ashwin 3-22) by 71 runs
England won against Afghanistan by 5 wickets, but lost to Ireland by 5 runs (DLS Method), while the match against Australia was abandoned due to rain. England won their last two matches against New Zealand by 20 runs and against Sri Lanka by 4 wickets.
Against New Zealand, England skipper opener Jos Buttler chose to bat first on a used pitch and produced his first significant innings of the tournament, making a superbly-paced 73 off 47 balls after two reprieves to set up England’s total of 179. He became England’s leading scorer in men’s T20Is in the process, on the night he won his 100th cap.
England managed to strike regularly towards the end: Ben Stokes removed Kane Williamson, Mark Wood rushed James Neesham, and Sam Curran closed out the win with a superb spell at the death.
England179 for 6 (Buttler 73, Hales 52, Ferguson 2-45) beatNew Zealand159 for 6 (Phillips 62, Curran 2-26) by 20 runs
Pacer Sam Curran (5/10) became the first England bowler to take a five-wicket haul in T20Is as Jos Buttler led England beat Afghanistan by 5 wickets in Perth in a Super 12 Group 1 match. Chasing a modest 113, England crossed the finish line with 11 balls to spare.
Sam Curran’s five-for dismantled Afghanistan as England notched a five-wicket win in their opening ICC T20 World Cup 2022 match on Saturday. Sam Curran sizzled with a five-wicket haul, giving away only 10 runs, while Ben Stokes (2/19) and Mark Wood (2/23) picked two wickets apiece to bundle out Afghanistan for 112. Defending a modest total, the Afghans made a game out of it but England eventually completed the task in 18.1 overs.
England got off to a steady start with Alex Hales and Jos Buttler putting on an opening stand of 35 runs. But they suffered a brief scare in the middle as they went on to lose four wickets in the space of just 46 runs. Afghanistan could also sense that they were back in the game. But Liam Livingstone stepped up and scored an unbeaten 29 from 21 deliveries to guide England home.
While achieving a target of 113 was always expected, the manner in which England struggled, particularly against Afghanistan’s Rashid Khan, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, and Mohammad Nabi, spoke of a few kinks still to be ironed out. The spin trio conceded just one boundary between them and emerged with a wicket each.
England113 for 5 (Livingstone 29*) beatAfghanistan112 (Curran 5-10) by five wickets
Ireland won by 5 runs against England by Duckworth Lewis Method as England scored 105/5 in 14.3 overs in reply to Ireland’s 157 before rain intervened. The par score for England was 110 at that stage. Ireland was left disappointed for not making the most of the good start they got as they were bundled out for 157 runs with 5 balls to spare against England.
Mark Wood (3/34) and Liam Livingstone (3/17) were the wreckers in chief for England as apart from skipper Andrew Balbirnie who scored 62, none of the other Irish batters contributed more than 35. Joshua Little dismissed both openers, Jos Buttler, for naught and Alex Hales for 7 as England lost 2 wickets within the powerplay.
England went through to the semi-finals of the T20 World Cup, knocking Australia out in the process, thanks to a four-wicket win over Sri Lanka. It was an anxiety-riddled chase in the final match in Group 1, despite a target of 142 looking well within reach after openers Jos Buttler and Alex Hales posted 75 for the first wicket inside eight overs.
But a series of unforced errors saw six wickets fall in the space of 65 deliveries, for the addition of just 54. But Ben Stokes – as ever – saw England over the line with 42 from 36 that only contained two fours but constantly worked the scoreboard and Sri Lanka’s outfielders before Chris Woakes’ cut for four confirmed victories with two balls left.
England144 for 6 (Hales 47, Stokes 42*) beatSri Lanka141 for 8 (Nissanka 67, Wood 3-26) by four wickets
Yuzvendra Chahal, the Indian leg-spinner has not yet featured in any game of the ICC T20 World Cup 2022. With Adelaide providing enough assistance for spinners, Yuzvendra Chahal might find himself playing probably in place of Axar Patel.
India Predicted XI: KL Rahul, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Dinesh Karthik, Ravichandran Ashwin, Yuzvendra Chahal, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Arshdeep Singh, Mohammed Shami
Dawid Malan is ruled out of the game due to an injury. England can replace Dawid Malan with Phil Salt.
