This game between the two highest-ranked T20 teams promises to be thrilling on T20 World Cup final.
India and England enter the semifinals on equal terms on T20 World Cup final. While they’ve both had impressive performances thus far in the competition, their opponents have revealed their flaws.
Oh, and if India wins, Pakistan will be waiting in Melbourne for the final.
India has won 12 of the 20 T20s they have played versus England. This will be their fourth T20 World Cup final match, with England having won just once.
In this competition the T20 World Cup final, India has inflicted devastating defeats on England. Yuvraj Singh memorably struck Stuart Broad for six sixes in 2007, and England were bowled out for 80 in 2012. It is still their joint-lowest T20 total and the joint-third-lowest score in T20 World Cup history.
That was also the last time the two met in the World Cup.
The path to the final
India opened their T20 World Cup final campaign with a thrilling last-ball victory against Pakistan. After handily overcoming the Netherlands, India suffered its first setback of the tournament against South Africa. Despite Suryakumar Yadav’s late comeback, the 133 runs they scored were comfortably chased down.
Rain and Litton Das gave India a fright in their game against Bangladesh, but they eventually won. Their place in the semifinals was secured before the last group game against Zimbabwe, and the 71-run triumph provided confidence ahead of the England encounter.
England is yet to find its groove at this tournament. While they easily defeated Afghanistan in their first game, they were defeated by Ireland in a contest plagued by rain.
After their match against Australia was rained off, Captain Jos Buttler led from the front against New Zealand, scoring 73 off 47 balls in a 20-run victory. England advanced after defeating Sri Lanka in their last group game, while champions Australia were eliminated.
The duel between England’s batting and India’s bowling would be vital in the game at the T20 World Cup final.
Both have got thus far reasonably uninjured, but they are unconvincing. The loss of Jasprit Bumrah was a huge blow to India’s prospects. Mohammed Shami and Arshdeep Singh have stepped in well in his absence, but they have showed symptoms of being vulnerable to counter-attacking batting.
Virat Kohli is the current tournament leader with 246 runs, closely followed by Suryakumar Yadav in third place with 226. Buttler, and many of England’s batting order, have earned their names with this style of hitting. In this World Cup, England’s captain has fallen well short of expectations. Buttler, along with Alex Hales at the top, sets the tone for the remainder of the innings, as he demonstrated against New Zealand.
Sam Curran has been England’s finest player in the event, taking 10 wickets at an average of 9.4 and being the only player to record a five-wicket haul. He has been well assisted by pacer Mark Wood and spinner Adil Rashid, both of whom have had good seasons so far.
