ICC T-20 World Cup: India To Take On England In Semifinal: Former Australia coach Trevor Bayliss has a reputation as a brilliant cricket brain. Gave England ODI World Cup as a coach. So, Baylis wrote a column in a British paper about Thursday’s India-England war. He wrote, ‘My emotions say that England will win today. But the mind says, India!’ This should send any blue jersey fan into a frenzy. On paper, where everyone is keeping England ahead in the India war, is it India’s bet to give the World Cup to Joss Butlers? But there is also a fear. Fear of history.
India has not won an ICC tournament since 2013. That Champions Trophy win under Mahendra Singh Dhoni is over. Since then, India has either been knocked out of the semi-finals or the final.
The examination is as follows:
2014 T20 World Cup: Defeated in the final.
2015 ODI World Cup: Defeated in the semi-finals.
2016 T20 World Cup: Defeated in the semi-finals.
2017 Champions Trophy: Defeated in the final.
2019 ODI World Cup: Defeated in the semi-finals.
It is a fact that current India captain Rohit Sharma has not captained even one of the above ICC tournaments. But played. This time, the great test of turning the wheel of history as India’s captain is before him. But where is his bat, Rohit’s bat roaring? So far, the Indian captain’s form in the current World Cup has been miserable. Only 89 runs in five matches. Rohit did not go to bat in the nets after sustaining a wrist injury yesterday. Rather, coach Rahul Dravid (Rahul Dravid) went to see the Adelaide pitch. After that Suryakumar sat straight with Yadav.
Actually, Adelaide field boundaries are not all the same. The straight boundary is large, while the square boundary is quite small. So according to the size of the field, the game needs to be changed. Virat’s time to bat in the net again this day felt rushed. in the groin Harshal Patel’s bowling. But that is nothing to fear. Rohit also later came to the press conference and talked about the various challenges with the size of the Adelaide field. He said, “Last time in Dubai, this thing was not there. All fields were roughly the same size. In Australia, the size of each field boundary is different. Adaptation is a really big challenge.”
There is one more challenge in front of the Indian captain. Who will India play in the semi-finals? Rishabh path? Or Dinesh Karthik? Yuzvendra Chahal? Or Akshar Patel? Neither Karthik nor Panth seemed comfortable with anyone so far. Akshar has played enough in the group stage. But could not make any impact. Putting Yuzvendra Chahal back there could be a boomerang. So, various numbers are in front of Captain Rohit. England captain Jos Buttler has no fewer obstacles in front of him. There are question marks over the game of Voyle pacer Mark Wood. Chris Jordan will enter the team if he does not play. But Wood’s pace is not in his bowling. David Malan is more uncertain. If he can’t, Phil Salt will play. Buttler again has his own personal battle against Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Buttler was dismissed five times in T20 against Bhuvneshwar. Scored only 30 runs. Of course, the English captain did not care about those stats. “I’m not afraid of anybody,” he said. Well, that will be seen. One of the two will happen today. If India loses today, it will return to the ’92 final, if it wins, it will return to the first T20 World Cup final. Whatever happens in Adelaide today, history is right back!
