IND v ENG: The Indian team is now just two wins away from becoming champions for the second time in the T20 World Cup and ending its 15-year wait. The team led by Rohit Sharma advanced to the semi-finals by winning four out of five matches of the Super 12 stage and now face England in the knockout match. The match between the two teams has always been level in T20 and that is the reason why no one wants to make the mistake of taking anyone lightly.

England fear Surya more than Virat

If India wants to win the match against England, then it will expect good performance from all its players, but considering the current form of Virat Kohli and Suryakumar Yadav, everyone’s eyes will be on these two players. Not only Indian fans but England also knows this. Former England cricketers and the players of the current team are also scared more than these two players. This is the reason why England players are constantly talking about Suryakumar Yadav, as well as their eyes are on Kohli’s Virat form in Adelaide.

Adelaide is Virat’s stronghold

Britain’s prestigious BBC Sports channel has also warned the England team about Virat’s amazing form in Adelaide. The BBC’s concern is also justified as Virat’s performance in Adelaide is better than any other player in the world. In statistics, Kohli has scored 907 runs in 14 innings at an average of 75.58 in all formats. He has scored 509 runs in five matches in Test cricket at this ground including 3 centuries and one half-century. Talking about T20, Virat has scored 2 half-centuries in two matches here and has been unbeaten both times. He also played an unbeaten innings of 64 runs against Bangladesh in this World Cup. Talking about his records on this ground, Virat had said that he feels at home here and enjoys playing here. In such a situation, Virat’s current form and his record in Adelaide have raised the concerns of the British.

Surya’s weakness was not found

However, for England, not only Virat but also Surya remains a headache. Many players of England including captain Jos Buttler have also mentioned this. Former captain Nasir Hussain also tried to explore Surya’s strengths and weaknesses but he did not get much benefit in it. Another former England cricketer Michael Atherton even said that Surya would love the Adelaide ground and he would be the biggest challenge for us here. However, he expressed hope and said that maybe Surya may fail.

Surya’s dangerous record against England

Like Virat, Surya has also scored three half-centuries in this World Cup and his strike rate of 193 is the highest. Against England, Surya scored a century in his home this year. Against this team, he has scored 260 runs in 5 innings at an average of 52 and a strike rate of 195.48.
