IND vs ENG: Pakistan’s team has reached the final of T20 World Cup 2022 and today the second finalist will also be known. The winner of the second semi-final between India and England to be played in Adelaide will take on Pakistan in the title match. India are desperate to end their 15-year wait and become champions for the second time but the England team is trying to sabotage their dreams.

The England team does not want to leave any stone unturned in the win against India and this is the reason why they can give a chance to their star fast bowler Chris Jordan in the knockout match. The 34-year-old Jordan’s record against India is extremely dangerous. He has taken most wickets in his career against India. In fact, it is almost difficult for England’s main fast bowler and Mark Wood, who is in tremendous form, to play in this match. He has been battling an injury and captain Jos Buttler himself was not too enthusiastic about his selection and spoke to the media on the eve of the match, hinting at a change.

Wood difficult to play due to injury

Wood, who took nine wickets in the tournament at an economy of 7.71, did not even take part in the practice session in Adelaide and will remain out of the match, ESPN Cricinfo reports. On the other hand, Jordan bowled for a long time in the practice session and sweated profusely. Although Jordan made a comeback against Australia last month after recovering from injury, he did not get any wicket. In such a situation, England will also be worried about his form.

Jordan’s record against India is excellent

Talking about Jordan’s career, he is a specialist bowler in the death overs of England, so Sam Curran will get his support when he joins the team. Taking a look at Jordan’s figures against India, the bowler has taken 18 wickets in 14 matches at an average of 27.27 and an economy of 9. He has also taken four wickets in an innings once. In his career, he has taken 90 wickets in 81 innings.

Salt or Willie instead of Malan

Apart from Wood, the England team is also worried about the injury of David Malan and star batsman Phil Salt can be replaced in his place. He will also have the option of playing fast bowling all-rounder David Willey, who also offers the option of batting with fast bowling from the left arm.

England team:

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

Standby Player: Liam Dawson, Richard Gleason
