New Delhi. The teams of India and England will face each other in the second semi-final of the T20 World Cup on Thursday (November 10). This match will be played at the Adelaide Oval, where Team India defeated Bangladesh by 5 runs under the Duckworth-Lewis rule in the Super 12 round. Team India’s head coach Rahul Dravid has indicated a change in the playing XI for the semi-final against England. Dravid has admitted that he will consider the playing XI.

Team India defeated Zimbabwe by 71 runs in the last match of Super 12 to make it to the semi-finals, while the England team led by Jos Buttler defeated Sri Lanka and booked a ticket to the last four. An exciting battle will be seen between both the teams. Team India’s journey to the semi-finals has been great. He has won four out of 5 matches. The Adelaide Oval wicket is generally considered spinner friendly.

In such a situation, in place of Axar Patel, experienced leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal can get a chance in the playing XI. Experienced wicketkeeper Dinesh Karthik can also make a comeback. Against Zimbabwe, Rishabh Pant was given a chance in place of Dinesh Karthik, who returned to the pavilion after scoring 3 runs. Dravid said that he will decide on the playing XI only after seeing the Adelaide pitch.

After winning the match against Zimbabwe, Rahul Dravid said, ‘I think we know about all our 15 players. We know whoever comes in 15 will potentially not make us weak, given the kind of team we have picked. Again, we will go to Adelaide and see the pitch there. We have seen a few matches there and we know the wicket is slow. We may get a different pitch. The spinners did not get much advantage on the wicket on which we played the match against Bangladesh. Despite this, we will go there and after seeing the wicket we will decide what we can do with this wicket.

Rahul Dravid also said that captain Rohit Sharma deliberately chose to bat first after winning the toss against Zimbabwe as he was looking to defend the score ahead of the semi-final in Adelaide.
