Rohit Sharma’s side won four of their five Super 12 games, with their sole setback coming against South Africa in Perth. England, on the other hand, finished second in Group 1 after securing wins against Sri Lanka and New Zealand before losing to Ireland in a rain-interrupted match.

India will not look to tinker much with their playing eleven. The only decision will be about the role of wicket-keeper and it will be interesting to see whether Rishabh Pant keeps the spot or if Dinesh Karthik returns to the roster. All eyes will be on the sensational Suryakumar Yadav who has been batting in a class of his own in this tournament. Rohit Sharma and company will look to carry their momentum and seal their place in the all-important finals.

Meanwhile, England received a major blow when their star batter Dawid Malan was ruled out of the match. Ace pacer Mark Wood has also not received the green light from the medical team and his selection is still in jeopardy. The two have been vital cogs of the three lions and their absence might cost them. Phil Salt might come in to replace Malan while Chris Jordan might take Wood’s place.

The match would be a monumental contest, and with some of the top names in world cricket on the rosters, expect an absolute cracker.
