T20 World Cup 2022 Semi-Final Prediction: Who Will Win The T20 Match Between India vs England?

India and England will meet in the second semi-final of the T20 World Cup 2022, slated for Thursday at the Adelaide Oval.

India have already made plenty of progress from last year’s T20 WC group-stage exit in the UAE, while England will want to do one and two steps better than the previous time when they lost to New Zealand in the semi-final.

Jos Buttler’s side snuck into the semis owing to better NRR than Australia after both teams finished at 7 points each. India, on the other hand, had their semi-final spot sealed even before they played their last group game and would come largely satisfied in the semis with their Super 12 performances, however, some chinks remain to be ironed out and a couple of tough selection decisions to be made.

IND vs ENG pitch report, date, and time

Venue: Adelaide Oval
IND vs ENG pitch and weather report:

The forecast for the semi-final day in Adelaide is clear.

The Adelaide pitch has been docent for batting and chasing as well, though pacers have also enjoyed the extra spice in the wicket. The batters have liked to swipe across the line aiming for the short square boundaries compared to hit down the ground and taking on the long straight boundaries.

Teams batting first have a 4-2 win-loss record in Adelaide in the Super 12 with an average 1st innings total of 157.

IND vs ENG Predicted playing XIs

Skipper Rohit Sharma suffered a blow on his right forearm but he’s fit now and will play in the semi-final. India are likely to stick with the side that played against Zimbabwe, meaning that Rishabh Pant will get the nod over Dinesh Karthik.

India predicted XI for the semi-final:

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

While England was already sweating on the fitness of Dawid Malan, who left the field in the Sri Lanka game with a groin injury, they have also been given another concern in the form of Mark Wood, who is reported to be having some stiffness. Phil Salt would replace Malan; if Wood is also not fit, then either Chris Jordan, David Willey, or Tymal Mills could get in.

England predicted XI for the semi-final:

Alex Hales, Jos Buttler (c&wk), Ben Stokes, Harry Brook, Liam Livingstone, Moeen Ali, Phil Salt, Sam Curran, Chris Woakes, Adil Rashid, Mark Wood/David Willey

IND vs ENG match prediction: India to win the semi-final

We are predicting India to win the semi-final vs England and proceed to the final of the T20 World Cup 2022.

Kohli’s form and his numbers in Adelaide, Suryakumar Yadav’s belligerent hitting, and the return of KL Rahul to form, plus England’s batting woes after the openers are the key factors underpinning our prediction.
