Team India expected to be unchanged as we look at the best predicted playing 11 for India vs England semi-final 2 clash in T20 World Cup 2022.
After 5 matches of brutal hard work, India and England would be facing each other in the semi-finals of the T20 World Cup 2022. A blockbuster clash awaits on Thursday as India face England for the first time in an ICC T20 World Cup Knockouts.
Team India have faced England three times in ICC T20 World Cup with India winning it twice and England winning it once. The last time India faced England in T20 World Cup was exactly a decade back in 2012. It was a dominating victory for India as they defeated England by a whopping margin of 90 runs.
So, what’s in store for us this Thursday? Well, we are expected to see a used pitch being used at Adelaide for the Semi-final 2. This is a bummer as it would allow the ball to spin more and swing less. It might help Team India more given the convenience of playing on a dry pitch. But don’t discount the spin trio of Adil Rashid, Moeen Ali, and Liam Livingstone.
So, as we wait for the match to begin, let’s look at the best predicted playing 11 and key match details for India vs England semi-final clash at T20 World Cup 2022. Meanwhile, as per the leading website, Betway, India are hot favorites to win the Semi-final 2 vs England wth odds at 1.15.
Tournament: T20 World Cup 2022
Type: India vs England – Semi-final 2
When: November 10, 1:30 pm IST
Playing 11 for Both Teams:
Team India made one change in their last group stage match vs Zimbabwe as Rishabh Pant got a chance to play in place of Dinesh Karthik. Will Team India keep Rishabh Pant for the semi-final vs England? Well, ideally they should as Rishabh Pant adds more balance to the squad and his wicket-keeping skills are way better than Dinesh Karthik’s.
Will Team India make any change apart from Rishabh Pant’s place? Well, with pitch assisting the spinners, India should finally think of playing Yuzvendra Chahal in place of Axar Patel. Axar Patel may not be much use against England’s batters. Whereas Yuzi Chahal may be able to provide important breakthroughs in the middle overs. However, India may as well go unchanged for the match to keep the winning combination intact.
Overall, the playing 11 that India could adopt look strong. India just need Rohit Sharma to fire all guns blazing. The last time Rohit played against England in T20 World, he fit a brilliant match-winning fifty. Team India would also need their bowlers and the duo of Kohli and SKY to keep performing the way they are doing.

Rohit Sharma (C), KL Rahul, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant (WK), Hardik Pandya, Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Shami & Arshdeep Singh
For England, the main question would be who replaces Dawid Malan. Malan got injured in England’s last group-stage match, and would not feature in the semi-final vs India. Instead, the team would look to bring in the attacking Phil Salt at number 3. This would give England another attacking option in the middle overs.
Apart from this change, there are rumors about Mark Wood being injured. However, it seems he is likely to be fit ahead of the semi-final clash. So, expect England to play the same bowling line-up that featured against Sri Lanka in the Super 12 clash.
