IND vs ENG Semi final: India ended their group at the top with four wins in five group games. The Men in Blue were the first team to qualify from their group and will now face England on Thursday (November 10) at the most iconic ground, Adelaide Oval. Team India reached Adelaide on November 7 (Monday) and started their training on Tuesday.

But ahead of the semi-final against England, India faced a big injury scare when the Indian captain, Rohit Sharma, was facing throwdowns and was hit on his right arm. Some media persons shot the video, and Rohit was seen in pain. However, later, he was back to practice after 40 minutes, and all was well. But on Wednesday morning, India suffered another injury scare, and this time it was the former Indian captain Virat Kohli.

IND vs ENG: Virat Kohli was hit on his thumbs by a ball from Harshal Patel

Virat, who was doing his batting practice, was hit by a ball from pacer Harshal Patel. The former captain was seen in unbearable pain and left the practice session. Notably, Virat Kohli is the leading run-scorer of the T20 World Cup 2022 and has scored 265 runs in five games with three half-centuries. He is also one of the prime reasons that India has reached the semi-finals, and an injury to him could prove to be a big setback for India.

He was later seen to be perfectly fine after returning to training. Notably, this was the last session for the Indian team in Adelaide ahead of the semi-final clash against England. Thus, his availability will be very important for India. However, some reports have confirmed that he is fine to go against England in the semi-final. Speaking of Virat’s records at the Adelaide Oval, his numbers at this venue are staggering. He has played 10 games in all three formats and scored 937 runs with 5 centuries in ODIs and Tests. In two T20Is, he has scored 90 and 64.
