T20 World Cup: The Indian cricket team is just two wins away from winning the T20 World Cup title. Team India, playing the World Cup for the first time under the leadership of Rohit Sharma, managed to reach the semi-finals by topping Group 2 in the Super 12 stage and will now face England here. The Indian team has so far lost only to South Africa in the tournament, in which it suffered a close defeat. But apart from that he defeated four teams including Pakistan.
Tough road against England
However, the match against England will not be easy for Team India and they will have to give their best in every field. Captain Rohit himself has also admitted that England is a dangerous team and against them the whole team will have to give their best.
Team India’s playing XI will be monitored
In this knockout match to be held on Thursday (November 10) in Adelaide, the fans will not only keep an eye on the performance of the players, as well as everyone will also want to know which players the captain Rohit and coach Dravid trust in this match. While there is doubt about Dinesh Karthik or Rishabh Pant in wicketkeeping, Yuzvendra Chahal or Axar Patel will also be seen in spin bowling.
Indian team made changes twice
Looking at India’s trend so far, it has not changed much and has given Deepak Hooda in one match and Rishabh Pant in the other. But there are also four such players who are present with the team in Australia but have not played a single match so far.
Chahal and Harshal remained on the bench
The team’s star spinner Yuzvendra Chahal and medium pacer Harshal Patel are part of the 15-man squad and were big contenders for the playing XI before the start of the tournament, but these two players have not got a chance in a single match. India have to play mostly two matches now, but the way the bowlers have performed, it seems that both the players will return home without playing.
Shardul and Siraj also empty handed
Apart from these two players, fast bowler Mohammad Siraj and all-rounder Shardul Thakur are also present in Australia and they are also difficult to play. However, both these players have been kept in standby and they can get a chance only if someone gets injured.
Rohit Sharma (Captain), KL Rahul, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Deepak Hooda, Rishabh Pant, Dinesh Karthik, Hardik Pandya, Ravichandran Ashwin, Yuzvendra Chahal, Axar Patel, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Harshal Patel, Arshdeep Singh, Mohammed Shami.
Standby Player: Mohammad Siraj, Shreyas Iyer, Ravi Bishnoi, Shardul Thakur
