IND vs ENG, T20 WC 2022: The much-anticipated semi-final round of T20 World Cup 2022 is all set to begin on 9th November & the much awaited second semi-final between India & England will be played at the Adelaide Oval. As per the sources, India will go ahead with an unchanged Playing XI which has won the fixture against Zimbabwe. This means Rishabh Pant who had played a fixture against Zimbabwe without leaving a mark will be retained in the Playing XI in place of Dinesh Karthik who was a part of India’s Playing XI in the first four matches.
Karthik was seen practicing for long hours in the nest sessions on Tuesday but still, Pant looks the favorite to retain his position in the Playing XI for the IND vs ENG, T20 WC 2022 clash. This means Hardik Pandya who also couldn’t show his magic in the marquee event so far will have to take up the role of a finisher. However, the management won’t do many changes to India’s Playing XI.
IND vs ENG, T20 WC 2022: Rohit Sharma to play in the Crucial Clash
The unchanged combination would mean that a left-arm spinner would be preferred in place of Yuzvendra Chahal, the only player in the squad who didn’t get a chance to feature in the Playing XI so far in the T20 World Cup. They want to try Chahal against England in the semi-final but there are chances that their winning combination will remain unchanged for the crucial fixture unless there is a drastic change in weather conditions ahead of the fixture.
The team management would take into consideration lots of factors while selecting the playing XI including the dynamics of the Adelaide Oval which is not as large as MCG where hitting a boundary has been a daunting task.
On the other hand, it is clear that Rohit Sharma will play in the semi-final. Earlier in the day, Rohit suffered an injury scare after being hit on his forearm. However, after evaluation, it was clear that his injury is not so serious & he proved that by returning back to the field & batting even after a hit.
