IND vs ENG Semi Final: “Beating England at their home gives us confidence”- Rohit Sharma ahead of the T20 WC semi-final on Thursday

IND vs ENG semi final: After winning four out of five group games, India reached the T20 World Cup 2022 semi-finals quite convincingly. But now, they will have to face arguably the strongest white-ball team in the world, England. The clash between India and England will take place on Thursday at the Adelaide Oval. And with the two strongest teams locking horns with each other, this game will surely be a high-voltage clash.

Indian skipper Rohit Sharma stated ahead of the semi-final that Team India is confident. Notably, India defeated England 2-1 in a three-match T20I series a few months ago. And Suryakumar Yadav was the star with the bat, with 171 runs in three games at a strike rate of over 200. SKY scored a magnificent century in the third T20I, chasing the target of 216 runs. He scored 117 runs off 55 balls, but India fell short by 17 runs in the end.
