- First Semi-Final: Pakistan vs New Zealand, Sydney (Nov 9)
- Second Semi-Final: India vs England, Adelaide (November 10)
1. India had a mat on the same ground against England
When India toured England in 2022, the hosts won 2-1 in both the white-ball series. The team under Rohit’s captaincy had dusted the hosts on their own ground. That is, England was not a team that could not be defeated. It shouldn’t be difficult for Rohit Sena to beat him.
2. Rohit Sena knows how to win big matches
If the Indian team reaches the semi-finals, it will not be easy for England to stop it. Rohit Sharma’s captaincy record is quite good in this matter. He has never lost in the Indian Premier League title match, nor could he beat anyone in the Asia Cup or the Nidahas Trophy. For this reason, it is also believed that Rohit Sena is the number one favorite team in the knockouts.
3. Pakistan defeated New Zealand in the final of the tri-series
The Pakistani team was in New Zealand before leaving for Australia for the T20 World Cup. Here he played tri-series with Bangladesh and New Zealand. New Zealand and Pakistan were face to face in the title match of the T20 series. In the title match, Pakistan defeated the team led by Kane Williamson by 5 wickets. That is, New Zealand is not a big boon for him. He can even beat New Zealand in the semi-finals.
4. Pakistan will not give up easily
On the other hand, Pakistan had lost to Australia in the semi-finals in 2021. This time he will leave no stone unturned. The good news for him is that Shaheen Shah’s bowling against Bangladesh has raised his hopes. Babar Azam’s form is bad. He has nothing to lose, so he will do his best.
