T20 World Cup 2024 Semi-Final Preview: IND vs ENG

ind vs england

India and England will face off in the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024 semi-final, and more cricket history will be written. Below is the match preview of the semi-final between India and England.

The last time these two countries met in a Men’s T20 World Cup semi-final was 19 months ago in Adelaide when a spectacular opening partnership between Jos Buttler and Alex Hales saw England glide to victory in a way that pushed India to reassess its T20 strategy. That also impacted the t20 betting strategy as well. 

This time, India has more batting firepower, alternatives in the middle overs, and more variety in their attack. Still, the reigning champions will be difficult to beat, especially with Buttler and his new opening partner Phil Salt in blistering form.

England is two games away from becoming the first men’s team to retain the T20 World Cup.

India has not won this competition since its beginning in 2007, and they are looking for their first World Cup victory in any format since 2011.

It promises to be an exciting match, especially from the point of view of T20 World Cup betting!

The Match Details

India vs. England, Thursday, June 27 (10:30 am local), 8 pm IST, Guyana National Stadium, Guyana.

About the Venue

The Guyana National Stadium is a 20,000-seat arena on the outskirts of Georgetown, located close off the banks of the Demerara River and a few kilometers from the shore.

This is the sixth and final game staged at the site during the tournament, with the other five taking place in Group C during the first round. Spinners have been extremely efficient on the ground, but there has also been some movement on the surface for quicks, with Afghanistan’s top score of 183/5 against Uganda being the highest of the five games.

The journey of both teams


India has won every game in which they have been able to compete, with the lone loss coming from an abandoned match against Canada in a rain-soaked Lauderhill.

With impressive wins over Bangladesh, Afghanistan, and Australia, they sealed their place in the Super Eight knockout stages as Group 1 victors.


England, on the other hand, has had a more difficult journey. A rained-out match against Scotland was followed by a loss to Australia early in their campaign, leaving them in need of large wins and favors from other teams to advance to the Super Eights. But they did just that, qualifying ahead of Scotland on Net Run Rate.

In the Super Eight, a setback to South Africa left England sweating, despite having already handily beaten hosts West Indies. That win, and the type of it, proved critical, giving them a huge Net Run Rate advantage, which they bolstered further with a thrashing of the United States to qualify with one game remaining effectively.

The squad members

India squad: Rohit Sharma (c), Hardik Pandya, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant, Sanju Samson, Shivam Dube, Ravindra Jadeja, Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Arshdeep Singh, Jasprit Bumrah, and Mohd. Siraj.

England squad: Jos Buttler (captain), Moeen Ali, Jofra Archer, Jonathan Bairstow, Harry Brook, Sam Curran, Ben Duckett, Tom Hartley, Will Jacks, Chris Jordan, Liam Livingstone, Adil Rashid, Phil Salt, Reece Topley, Mark Wood

Possible team combinations

India fielded a consistent side throughout their Super Eight campaign, with Kuldeep Yadav replacing Mohammed Siraj from the team that swept the Group Stage.

Given that it provides six frontline bowling options, three pacers, and three spinners, they will likely keep the same balance.

Given the projected nature of the Guyana surface, the only feasible modification would be to add Yuzvendra Chahal as another spinning threat.

England shifted away from the batting-heavy balance with which they began the tournament, leaving out Will Jacks and fielding four front-line speed bowlers, with Sam Curran and Chris Jordan coming in at seven and eight to avoid an overly long tail, and Mark Wood missing out.

It is possible that Jacks will return as a part-time spinner, or that Tom Hartley, who is in the squad as an additional main spinner, will make his debut.

However, England have Moeen Ali and Liam Livingstone in their top six, both of whom have bowled well when called upon, so they may choose to stick with the formula that got them through the Super Eight.
