India will be delighted to find themselves in the semi-finals after having failed to do so in the previous edition of the T20 World Cup. The men in blue were also knocked out of the Asia Cup recently after losing to Pakistan and Sri Lanka.
With Kohli returning to form and Surya being at his peak, India are now the new favourites to win the title. There may be a few tweaks the 2007 champions would need in the field ahead of this semi-finals.
England have a deep batting lineup with some big-hitting players throughout the lineup. And this poses a tough challenge to the Indian bowling attack.
In one of the recent outings, India seemed to be losing the plot defending a competitive total against Bangladesh. India haven’t faced tough opposition in terms of batting so often in this tournament.
And though we reckon India’s bowling attack has variety and gives Rohit many options when he needs to break a partnership, England will not be an easy target.
With the momentum and confidence, they will be carrying into this match, India now have their eyes on the trophy. There’s nothing better than an IND vs PAK final at the MCG.
Virat Kohli found his form at a great time and with Suryakumar Yadav being so consistent with his performances in the middle order, India have found some reliable players in the batting department.
This wasn’t the case for quite a long time. Not just these two but KL Rahul also is back in form striking the ball really well. India’s biggest worries in such international events have been finding a reliable batsman who rises to the occasion and delivers a match-winning knock.
None of the star players including Rohit and Kohli has managed to deliver such innings in the knockout stages of ICC events. This will be an opportunity for the old heroes to reclaim their significance in the side and for new heroes to rise.
Some of the top emerging heroes in this squad are Arshdeep Singh, Suryakumar Yadav, and Hardik Pandya. As the former World Cup-winning India batsman Gautam Gambhir pointed out, if India are to go deep into this tournament, Hardik and Surya will be the key players.
Pandya can deliver breakthroughs in the middle-overs and will be key for breaking a partnership. It was Mohammad Shami who Rohit relied on for this job and now with Pandya also delivering consistently, India has more options.

England were in red-hot form in the last T20 World Cup where they lost to NZ in the semi-finals. They were the top favourites to win the title and with an even better-looking squad this year, England will be hoping for a title win.
They brought Alex Hales to replace the injured Jonny Bairstow and things looked even brighter for England. Hales, who made a comeback to international cricket after 3 years showed just what he’s capable of with some impactful knocks.
While Harry Brook may not be the most experienced of all in the middle order, he can surely hit the long ball and make a difference. There are others like Moeen Ali, Liam Livingstone, and Ben Stokes all of whom are match-winners in their own right.
Stokes was crucial in England’s recent win over Sri Lanka where he anchored the run-chase in a tricky situation where wickets fell from the other end. Though he’s not a big T20 success, he has a role to play for England in this lineup.
The big-hitting responsibility lies with Buttler, Hales, Moeen, and Livingstone. In the lower order, all-rounder Sam Curran also has the ability to finish things off.
The batting lineup of England is as good as it gets. Mark Wood is the impact player in the pace department. While Curran has consistently found success, Wood with his pace can make things difficult for the batters.
The variety in the bowling attack would pose a tough challenge to the opposition never letting the batters settle down.

Adelaide Oval has a balanced pitch which offers help to both batters and bowlers. The last two games at this venue saw teams batting first put up a high score and the same can be expected in this game as well. The weather is expected to be partly cloudy with a high of 23 degrees Celsius.
The average 1st innings score at this venue is 166 runs with teams scoring over 170 runs in 4 of the 10 T20Is. The recent matches here have shown how batting friendly the wicket is and teams batting first can cross the 180-run mark as well.
Teams batting first in this World Cup have won 4 of the 6 matches played at this venue. Historically, teams batting first have had an advantage at the Adelaide Oval. The firepower in the batting lineups of both sides can propel the team to a big total which isn’t easy to chase down in knockout games.
India will be up against a worthy opponent and should be ready for tough competition. The Men in Blue faced some tough bowling spells in Super 12 from Pakistan and South Africa and by now, should be ready for the England challenge. England’s depth in the batting lineup allows them to play a more aggressive brand of cricket and are likely to put the young Arshdeep under pressure in the powerplay.
Overall, it will be a close contest, with India starting as favourites in our match prediction due to their overall squad strength.
