T20 World Cup Semifinal: England scared of rain, India seek Adelaide revenge in Guyana

Get the latest insights on the India vs England T20 World Cup clash: Discover head-to-head stats, team news, pitch, and weather conditions. Predicted XIs and key players to watch out for in today’s game.

India vs England is set to become the most electrifying match of the T20 World Cup. The two highest-ranked teams in the tournament will meet in the second semifinal at Providence Stadium. Going into the match, Jos Buttler’s England would feel superior on the mental front, having won the last T20 World Cup after thrashing India in the semifinal by 10 wickets. India, who have a poor record in ICC knockouts, lost their last five ICC Finals and last two T20 World Cup semifinals. Luckily for India, the rain threat looms large, and if the match is washed off, Rohit Sharma and co. will make it to the T20 World Cup Final based on their superior Super 8 performance.

India vs England Head-to-Head

The two top sides have a neck-and-neck battle in T20Is. India is marginally ahead with a 12-11 record. When the party shifts to the T20 World Cup, it gets even tighter. There’s a 2-2 tie, with England winning the last T20 World Cup match they played in 2022.

India vs England Team News

There are no injury concerns for both sides. However, form may be an issue for Rohit Sharma’s India and Jos Buttler’s England. Virat Kohli, Shivam Dube and Ravindra Jadeja haven’t been at their best so far, while all-rounders Moeen Ali, Liam Livingstone and Sam Curran haven’t done much with bat or ball.

IND vs ENG Pitch Report

Traditionally, the pitch at Providence Stadium favors spinners, and in the last game played here, Akeal Hossain took a 5-wicket haul. But pacers aren’t just bystanders either. They, too, get a fair bit of assistance. However, that could all change due to the rain. Because then, the damp pitch and wet outfield could make it a batter’s paradise. 

IND vs ENG Weather Report

On June 27, there is a 34 to 75% chance of rain from 10 AM to 6 PM local time (the match starts at 10:30 AM) in Guyana. Throughout the day, there is about a 90% probability of rain, but the match can be extended for 250 minutes to ensure that we have a result.

IND vs ENG Predicted XI

India Predicted XI

Unsure about the weather, Team India will play the same team in the semifinal. Another reason why India would think twice about changing the XI for the semifinal is that they are on a 6-match winning streak and won’t want to tinker with their winning XI.

England Predicted XI

England too will field the same XI as their last Group 8 match, which will help them gain a perfect balance with batting depth and a plethora of bowling options.
