ICC Mens T20 World Cup 2022: India vs England – 2nd Semi-Final Preview and Updates

India will be overjoyed to have reached the semi-finals after failing to do so in the previous T20 World Cup. The men in blue were also eliminated from the Asia Cup after losses to Pakistan and Sri Lanka.

India is the new favourites to win the World Cup, with Kohli returning to form and Surya at his best. The 2007 champions may require a few changes in the field ahead of the semi-finals.

England has a deep batting lineup that includes some big-hitting players. And this presents a significant challenge to India’s bowling attack.

In one recent match, India appeared to be losing its mind while defending a competitive total against Bangladesh. In this tournament, India hasn’t faced much tough batting opposition.

And, while we believe India’s bowling attack is diverse and gives Rohit many options when it comes to breaking a partnership, we believe England will not be an easy target.

The 2nd Semi-Final between India vs England will take place on November 9th, 2022 at Adelaide Oval, Adelaide.

India vs England

India (Match Odds – 1.80):


India now has their sights set on the trophy, thanks to the momentum and confidence they will bring into this match. Nothing beats a final between India and Pakistan at the MCG.

Virat Kohli found his form at an ideal time, and with Suryakumar Yadav’s consistency in the middle order, India has found some dependable players in the batting department.

For a long time, this was not the case. Not only these two, but KL Rahul has returned to form and is striking the ball extremely well. In such international events, India’s main concern has been finding a reliable batsman who can rise to the occasion and deliver a match-winning knock.

None of the star players, including Rohit and Kohli, have produced such performances in the knockout stages of ICC events. This will be an opportunity for old heroes to reclaim their place on the team, as well as for new heroes to emerge.

Arshdeep Singh, Suryakumar Yadav, and Hardik Pandya are three of the squad’s most promising young players. As former World Cup-winning India batsman Gautam Gambhir pointed out, Hardik and Surya will be crucial if India is to advance further in this tournament.

Pandya has the ability to deliver breakthroughs in the middle of a partnership. Rohit relied on Mohammad Shami for this job, but with Pandya now consistently delivering, India has more options.

Full Squad:

Rohit Sharma (c), KL Rahul, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Deepak Hooda, Rishabh Pant, Dinesh Karthik, Hardik Pandya, Ravichandran Ashwin, Yuzvendra Chahal, Axar Patel, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Harshal Patel, Arshdeep Singh, Mohammed Shami

Players to watch out for:

Virat Kohli

Virat Kohli – With 246 runs scored in the tournament, Kohli is the tournament’s leading run scorer. He has three half-centuries to his name, with a best score of 82 not out.

Suryakumar Yadav

Suryakumar Yadav has been the standout performer in the T20 World Cup 2022. He has 228 runs from 116 balls, with a strike rate of 193.96.

Arshdeep Singh

Arshdeep Singh has impressed at the start and end of each innings during this competition. In his only appearance at the Adelaide Oval, he took two wickets in an over against Bangladesh.

Possible Playing XI:

KL Rahul, Rohit Sharma (c), Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Rishabh Pant (wk), Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Shami, Arshdeep Singh

England (Match Odds – 2.00):


England was in blistering form at the last T20 World Cup, losing in the semi-finals to New Zealand. They were the heavy favorites to win the title last year, and with an even better-looking squad this year, England will be hoping to repeat.

They brought in Alex Hales to replace the injured Jonny Bairstow, and England’s prospects improved. Hales, who returned to international cricket after a three-year absence, demonstrated his abilities with some powerful knocks.

While Harry Brook may not be the most experienced middle order batsman, he can certainly hit the long ball and make a difference. Others, such as Moeen Ali, Liam Livingstone, and Ben Stokes, are all match-winners in their own right.

Stokes was instrumental in England’s recent victory over Sri Lanka, anchoring the run-chase in a difficult situation where wickets fell from the other end. Despite his lack of T20 success, he has a role to play for England in this lineup.

Buttler, Hales, Moeen, and Livingstone are in charge of the big hits. In the lower order, all-rounder Sam Curran can also finish things off. England’s batting lineup is as good as it gets. Mark Wood is a key player in the tempo department. While Curran has had consistent success, Wood’s pace can make things difficult for batters.

The bowling attack’s variety would pose a difficult challenge to the opposition, never allowing the batters to settle down.

Full Squad:

Jos Buttler (c), Moeen Ali, Harry Brook, Sam Curran, Chris Jordan, Liam Livingstone, Dawid Malan, Adil Rashid, Philip Salt, Ben Stokes, David Willey, Chris Woakes, Mark Wood, Alex Hales, Tymal Mills

Players to watch out for:

Jos Buttler

The England opener leads the tournament with 73 runs at a strike rate of 132.22. He is a big game player who will enjoy the spotlight of a semi-final.

Ben Stokes

England’s Test captain has struggled with the bat this series, but he demonstrated his importance to the team with 42 not out from 36 balls in the final game.

Mark Wood

The fast bowler plays a vital role for this team, as his sole responsibility is to take wickets. Regardless of the surface, he can beat even the best batters in the world.

Possible Playing XI:

Alex Hales, Jos Buttler (c & wk), Dawid Malan, Ben Stokes, Harry Brook, Liam Livingstone, Moeen Ali, Sam Curran, Chris Woakes, Adil Rashid, Mark Wood

India vs England Top Team Batsmen

With the bat, we support Virat Kohli, KL Rahul, and Suryakumar Yadav for India. Only Kohli and Yadav have scored more than 200 runs in the Super 12 stage, and the bookies rank Kohli as India’s top batter. KL Rahul has scored half-centuries in each of his last two tournament innings.

Our England batsmen predictions are Jos Buttler, Ben Stokes, and Alex Hales. Buttler led the IPL in scoring in 2022, and he is the betting favorite to be England’s top batter. In the last two games, Hales has scored 99 runs.

India vs England Top Team Bowlers

Our picks for the ball for India are Arshdeep Singh, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, and Mohammed Shami. Singh has a strike rate of 10.8 in the tournament, and the bookmakers expect him to deliver once more. Kumar has only given up 90 runs in 16.4 overs while bowling three maidens, the most of any bowler in the competition.

Mark Wood, Sam Curran, and Chris Woakes have been named England’s top bowlers. Wood has the best odds with the bookies, and he deserves it after a stellar performance. Sam Curran has the highest strike rate of any player who has bowled over nine overs this season.

India vs England Head to Head

The sides have been fairly evenly matched in this format over the years, but India has been particularly impressive recently. They have won four of the last five meetings and the last two bi-lateral series (3-2 and 2-1).

India vs England Toss Prediction

In this World Cup, teams batting first have won four of the six matches played at this venue. Teams that bat first have historically had an advantage at the Adelaide Oval. The firepower in both teams’ batting lineups can propel the team to a large total that is difficult to chase down in knockout games.

India vs England Pitch Report

At this venue, the average first innings score is 166 runs, with teams scoring more than 170 runs in four of the ten T20Is. Recent matches here have demonstrated how batting-friendly the wicket is, and teams batting first can also cross the 180-run mark.

Adelaide Oval has a balanced pitch that aids both batters and bowlers. The previous two games at this venue saw teams bat first put up a high score, and the same can be expected in this game. The forecast calls for partly cloudy skies and a high temperature of 23 degrees Celsius.

India vs England Prediction

India will face a worthy opponent and should be prepared for a tough contest. The Men in Blue faced some tough bowling spells from Pakistan and South Africa in Super 12 and should be ready for the England challenge by now. England’s batting depth allows them to play a more aggressive brand of cricket, putting the young Arshdeep under pressure in the powerplay.

Overall, it will be a close contest, with India starting as favorites in our match prediction due to the strength of their overall squad. Check out the odds at Cricbaba!

India is the favourite to beat England at the odds of 1.80.

India vs England Most Recommended Player for Bet:

We believe Virat Kohli will be India’s leading run scorer in this game. Last week at the Adelaide Oval, the 34-year-old hit 64 not out in his only appearance of the tournament.
