India vs England, Semi-Final 2 Highlights

India will face against England in the second semifinals of the current T20 World Cup on Thursday, 27th June 2024, at the Providence Stadium, Guyana. At precisely 8 PM IST, the game will begin.

India (IND) has won six matches in the event and is now undefeated in the competition. The squad displayed excellent hitting, bowling, and fielding throughout the game. The team defeated Australia, Bangladesh, and Afghanistan in the Super 8 phase of the tournament. 

However, England’s path to the semifinals was a little more challenging because their first match result was nullified; moreover, they subsequently lost to Australia. Then against the West Indies and the USA  Jos Buttler’s team prevailed.

India has a better chance of winning the match based on their performance in the competition, but as England has emerged stronger in the previous matches, it would be difficult to forecast how they will play.
