Team’s fastest bowler Mark Wood may not be a part of the playing 11 in the semi-final against India. He has suffered an injury while jogging. This is good news for India. Because Mark Wood is capable of throwing the ball at the speed of 150.
England’s concerns have increased ahead of their T20 World Cup semi-final match against India on Thursday after pacer Mark Wood complained of tightness. According to Sky Sports, the official broadcaster of the T20 World Cup in Britain, 32-year-old Wood on Tuesday withdrew from alternative exercises due to body stiffness while jogging. Wood has so far taken nine wickets in four matches in the T20 World Cup. If he fails to recover from the injury, Tymal Mills or Chris Jordan could find his place in the team.
England has already suffered a setback
The team is already troubled by the injury of aggressive batsman David Malan. Malan suffered a groin injury in England’s last match during the Super 12 stage. Malan, who was the world’s top batsman in the T20 rankings, walked off the field on Saturday after suffering an injury and did not return to bat. England won this match by four wickets. Team vice-captain Moeen Ali had said that Malan’s injury was serious.
Injuries to two of England’s key players before the World Cup semi-finals are not a good sign for the team. But it is a good thing for India. The absence of main bowler Mark Wood in England’s bowling unit can make England’s bowling weak. Wood is capable of throwing the ball continuously at a speed of 150. On the other hand, India’s openers KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma rarely like to play this kind of pace. In such a situation, India can expect big scores in the powerplay.
