For the Indian cricket team and captain Rohit Sharma, there is now a big test in the form of semi-finals to reach the final of the T20 World Cup 2022. The problem for India is that there is a team of England in front which is very strong. The batting, bowling and spin attack of this team i.e. in every field, it cannot be underestimated from anywhere. Obviously, in order to defeat this team and looking at the condition of Adelaide, Team India will go with its best playing XI.
Karthik and Pant, who will get a chance
Wicketkeeper Dinesh Karthik could not perform well in the Super-12 stage. The second wicketkeeper, Rishabh Pant, was fed in the previous match against Zimbabwe but he could not play a big innings. However, if we look at the practice session, it is clear that Pant will play in the semi-finals. With short boundaries and Rashid’s presence, Pant is considered a better option. one more thing is happening Whether the team can field Yuzvendra Singh Chahal in place of Axar Patel in this match. Helping the spinners, Chahal can prove to be very useful on this pitch. By the way, Rohit Sharma had made it clear that both Pant and Dinesh Karthik are available for selection.
No change in top order
There is going to be no change in the batting order of India’s top order. KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma will open once again. KL’s return to form is a big relief for the team, while Rohit Sharma’s not scoring runs is a matter of great concern for the team. In this important match, Rohit will have to score runs for the team. On the other hand, Virat Kohli is in better form and his momentum remains in Adelaide. Although both Rohit and Kohli were injured once during practice, but both are completely fit. Suryakumar Yadav, who is shining like a sun at number four, will be at number five, while Hardik Pandya will be at number five.

If Rishabh Pant plays in the team, then he will be at number five while Hardik can come at number six, but if Karthik is given a chance in place of Pant, then Hardik will be at number five and Karthik will be at number six. In this match, now it has to be seen whether the captain trusts Axar Patel or brings Chahal in the team, although Rohit had said that he is satisfied with Axar, then it does not seem that he should be dropped. The second spin all-rounder to accompany Axar will be R Ashwin. There is hardly any change to be made in the trio of fast bowlers, in which Mohd. Shami, Arshdeep Singh and Bhuvneshwar Kumar.
Probable playing XI of Team India
KL Rahul, Rohit Sharma (Captain), Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Rishabh Pant/Dinesh Karthik, Axar Patel/Yuzvendra Chahal, R Ashwin, Mohd. Shami, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Arshdeep Singh.
